It towers in the eastern suburbs, eight kilometers from Fuzhou proper. The mountain is so named because a huge rock on the summit resembles a drum and gives out sound similar to that of a beaten drum when wind blows or rain falls.
To the south of the summit stands the Yongquan Temple on a piece of flatland about 450 meters above sea level. The 1,000-year-old temple represents the cream of China's ancient architecture. There are also many inscriptions on precipices.
