Part of Jinci
Oct 2017 • Friends
Again this is part of Jinci. It is located on the left of the main Sacred Mother Temple. Due to ground disturbance, this spring has actually stopped flowing. The flowing water that is seen is due to a new mechanical pump being installed. The water flow out nicely from the "Dragon's mouth. The water from this spring is split in a ratio of 7:3. The story behind this is during a drought, the villages were all fighting for water for their fields. To solve this problem, the magistrate came out with a idea, he put 10 copper coins into a boiling oil and the village will each send a representative to take out as many coins as possible with bare hands. So the guy from the first village managed to retrieve 7 coins, but as he suffered serious burns, he died in the process. The little structure in the middle is to commemorate him.
