Chengshantou Scenic Spot is located at the easternmost end of Chengshan Mountains in Rongcheng City, Shandong Province, so it is named Chengshantou. Chengshantou is 200 meters above sea level, 1.5 kilometers wide in East and west, 2 kilometers long in North and south, covering an area of 2.5 square kilometers. Only 94 nautical miles across the sea from South Korea is the easternmost end of the land-sea junction. It was the earliest place to see the sunrise at sea, so it is known as the place where the sun rises, and is known as the "Cape of Good Hope of China".

Introduction to scenic spots

Chengshan Head of Sun City has been regarded as the place where the sun god lived since ancient times. According to Records of History, Jiang Taigong helped King Wuwang Zhou to greet the sunrise and repair the main temple of the sun. In 219 and 210 B.C., Qin Shihuang visited this place twice, seeking the medicine of immortality, leaving behind such ancient sites as "Qinqiao relics", "Qin Dynasty stone erection", "Shaqutai", "Shihuang Temple" and "Tiantou, Qindong Gate" written by Li Si. In 94 B.C., Emperor Liu Chedong of Han Dynasty patrolled the sea, worshiped the Sunrise Temple, watched the sunrise, built a mountain view, and sang a red goose song. In Weihai, where there were many couples who wanted to have boys, they would admire their names and dream of the sun and get a glin. There is also Apollo's legend about the origin of comparing "the sun" to a beautiful boy. The sun god, the son of Zeus and Leto, is regarded as the master of truth. His oldest image is a tall, upright, long-haired and needless beautiful boy, whose symbols are the lyre and bow and arrow. In western literary works, Apollo has become a synonym for "beautiful man", which is often used to refer to "young man with elegant demeanor and beautiful appearance".

After the founding of the People's Republic of China, Party and state leaders Hua Guofeng, Hu Yaobang, Zhao Ziyang, Wanli, Qiaoshi, Pengzhen, Tian Jiyun and other writers and artists from home and abroad have visited the city successively. Comrade Hu Yaobang also wrote seven words about the end of the sky and the surge of his heart.

Chengshan Head is surrounded by the sea on three sides, one side by the land, the mountains are green and stretching, the sea is vast and blue, the cliffs are majestic, the waves are flying snow, the momentum is magnificent, it is an ideal tourist summer resort. In 1988, it was approved as "National Scenic Spot" by the State Council.

Beautiful scenery plunges directly into the sea. The mountain walls are shattered, the waves under the cliffs are tumbling, and the current is turbulent. It has been impacted by strong winds, strong waves and storm surges all the year round. The maximum wave in the sea area reaches more than 7 meters. It has become a precious scientific research base for China to study marine meteorology, physical oceans, marine energy and so on. Chengtou Mountain also has rare typical marine erosion landforms such as sand mouth, sea donkey island's peculiar marine erosion pillar, sea erosion cave and natural relics such as Liukuang red bed, which are highly valued by geologists at home and abroad. It has high scientific value in geology, geomorphology and marine climate change.

Chengshantou has a typical marine erosion landform, which is highly valued by domestic geologists. The sea erosion cave is a horizontal and tunnel-shaped cave at the bottom of the cliff. It is located between high tide and low tide. The destructive wave continuously impacts the coast. It is located between high tide and low tide and is covered with rock with weak lines. It is attacked by dry-wet alternation, hydraulic action, dissolution and abrasion. It flows through the weak area between high water level and low water level through hydraulic action and abrasion. In the weak line, the weak line is widened and deepened, forming a formation of channel-shaped holes, known as sea erosion holes, such as sea erosion holes through the ground, so that there are holes on the ground, we call the holes on the ground as blown holes. The smuggling of sea caves decreases inward from the entrance.

Chengshantou is a region of marine and coastal ecosystems, Bay ecosystems and island ecosystems. It has such rich diversity of marine ecosystems, which is rare and rare in China's coastal areas. At the same time, due to its unique geographical location and the influence of different types of water masses, it is the most abundant marine biodiversity area in northern China.

The highest point of Chengshantou Scenic Spot is 200 meters above sea level, 0.75 kilometers wide in East and west, 1 kilometer long in North and south, covering an area of 2.5 square kilometers. The mountains here are green, the sea is vast and blue, the cliffs are lofty, the waves are snowing, and the momentum is magnificent. It is an ideal tourist summer resort. In 1988, it was approved as a national scenic spot by the State Council. The main scenic spots are Haidonkey Island, Shihuang Temple, Lishi of Qin Dynasty, Sunworship Terrace, Qinqiao Relics, Wanghai Pavilion, Guantao Pavilion, Zhenlongshi and Wildlife Park.

History and Legend

In ancient times, Chengshan Tou was considered to be the place where the sun god lived. According to the Historical Records, Jiang Taigong helped Zhou Wuwangping to greet the sun god and repair the main temple of the sun after he agreed on the world. In 219 B.C. and 210 B.C., Emperor Qin Shihuang visited this place twice to worship the Lord of Japan, build long bridges and seek the medicine for immortality, leaving behind such historical relics and humanistic landscapes as "Qinqiao relics", "Qin Dynasty stone-building", "Shaqutai" and "Qindong Gate at the End of Heaven" written by Li Si, Prime Minister of Qin. There is also the only "Shihuang Temple" in China. In 94 B.C., Liu Che, Emperor Wudi of Han Dynasty, led the civilian officers and generals to travel eastward through Mount Tai to Chengshan. He was shocked by the magnificent scenery of Sunrise at Chengshan Head. He wrote the "Temple of the Lord of Japan" and "Song of Red Wild Goose" as well as the "Song of Red Wild Goose". Since ancient times, military strategists have fought for land. Military incidents have occurred in the Three Kingdoms, Sui and Tang Dynasties, Ming and Qing Dynasties. The last battle of the Sino-foreign Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895, the battle of the Yellow Sea, took place 10 miles east of Chengshan Tou. Deng Shichang, the patriotic general of Beiyang Marine Division, died here. In order to commend Deng Shichang's heroic spirit of coexistence and death with warships, Emperor Guangxu's monument, the title of "Zhuang Festival", is still preserved in the imperial temple.

In 1874, the British built a 16.3-high lighthouse at the eastern end of Chengshan, with a light range of 21 nautical miles. So far, it is in good condition and in normal use. In order to prevent ships from losing sight of lights and direction in the foggy sea, the British built a fog flute next to the lighthouse. Every foggy day, the fog flute automatically whistles every two minutes. The sound of the flute can be transmitted over 30 nautical miles.
