Anyang's eight great views can be traced back to the Ming Dynasty. At that time, a prince of the Zhu family was named Anyang as the king, and he was called King Zhao. This king of Zhao is easy-to-read, easy to read, and beautiful. He wrote about the eight great sceneries of Anyang in some poems. The eight great scenes written by King Zhao are Lushan Qinglan, Bajian Lingquan, Wanjin Huiqu, Zhanghe Evening Moon, ancient temple sunset, Xiling Tombs, Santai Ruins, and Longtan Ruize. Every scene of King Zhao must be given a poem, which is described in detail in the Chronicles of Changde, compiled in the 52nd year of Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (1787). These poems by King Zhao of Yongjing should be the beginning of the eight great sceneries in Anyang.
In the Chronicles of Changde, compiled in the fifty-two years of the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty, the eight scenic spots in Anyang are Luyuan Chunhui, Jingbei Guanlan, Baimen Zhulan, Manshui Changhong, Han Ling Qiuyu, Zhanghe Late Crossing, and Shanying Songtao , Longshan snow. Anyang General History, edited by Wang Yingxi, a professor of history at Anyang Teachers College, mentioned that Anyang County had formed eight famous scenes during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, which were basically the same as those recorded in the Chronicles of Changde, except that Han Ling Qiu Yi became Han Ling Piece of stone. The eight great sceneries that Anyang people enjoy nowadays refer to the sayings passed down during the Qianlong period.
