Black Dragon Pool

Black Dragon Pool

The Heilongtan (Black Dragon Pool), which lies in the Wulao Hills, is a famous sight on the northern outskirts of Kunming. A legend says that a long long time ago there were ten dragons doing great harm to the people. Lu Dong-bin, one of the Eight Deities, subdued nine of them and buried them under an ancient pagoda. A small black dragon was left here and was commanded to do good to The people. Hence the name of the pool.
