Historical Monuments

An ancient monument, located in Lushan County and dating to 205 AD of the Eastern Han Dynasty, is the remains of the mausoleum of Fan Min (樊敏).[1][2] It is known as "Fan Min's Gate Towers and Sculptures" (樊敏阙及石刻), and, according to the archaeologist Chêng Tê-k'un (1957), includes the earliest extant full-size tortoise-born stele.[3] The stele has rounded top with a dragon design in low relief - a precursor to the "two intertwined dragons" design that was very common on such steles even in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, over a thousand years later.[3]
