Therefore, they were called "the first spring" by Emperor Qianlong, and are the first of 72 springs in Jinan, Quancheng. Zeng Gong of the Song Dynasty named it Baotuquan. It also has the names of "Jiquan", "E Ying Shui", "Hot Spring", "Waterfall Water" and "Sangu Shui". The so-called "Baotu" means to leap and rush, which reflects the characteristics of the three caves of Baotu Spring.
