Sword River Bridge of Wudang Mountain

Sword River Bridge of Wudang Mountain – Brief Introduction

Sword River Bridge of Wudang Mountain also named Tianjin Bridge. It lies across Jiudu Ravine. It is a crucial way on Wudang Mountain. It is a three-arched bridge which was built in Yuan Dynasty. The middle hole spans 9.6 meters and the side holes span 6.7 meters. It is essentially intact though it experienced countless floods in the past ages.

Longquan Temple (Dragon Spring Temple) was built at one end of Sword River Bridge in Yongle Period of Ming Dynasty. A screen wall was built in front of the peak which looks like a dragon's head. Sword River Bridge of Wudang Mountain is located in the remote mountains. The towering ancient trees, clean water, Longquan Temple and the screen wall here formed a picture of an exquisitely designed courtyard.

Sword River Bridge of Wudang Mountain - Legend

Sword River Bridge of Wudang Mountain is noted for its moving legend. It is said that Emperor Xuanwu (he was regarded as the God of Taoism) came to Wudang Mountain for practice when he was young. His mother leaded 500 soldiers followed him and persuaded him back to the royal palace. But Emperor Xuanwu didn't want to back to the palace at all. His mother seized his clothes and begged him back to the palace with her. Emperor Xuanwu drew his sword cut off the clothes and marked off a line on the ground. That line turned to be a river and separated Emperor Xuanwu and his mother across the river. The mother and son said goodbye here with tears.

Walking on the ancient Sword River Bridge of Wudang Mountain and looking at the running water of Sword River, visitors could also be moved while thinking of the beautiful legend here.
