The name of nine peaks is derived from nine peaks.

What is the shape of Jiufeng? According to the records of Jiaqing, the nine peaks are white dragon, rosefinch, flame and Tianya in the northeast, backlight in China and Japan, and Xianren, Huanglong, Yuanwu and Baihu peaks in the southwest
History of development
The nine peaks are surrounded by clouds and mist, and high into the sky. When the ancient Shu people did not know the relationship between the sun and the earth, they thought that the high and straight nine peaks blocked the way of the sun and the moon. They called the canyon between the nine peaks as "Menggu" (the place where the sun sleeps). Some people who study the classic of mountains and seas say that Jiufeng Mountain is the "Lingshan" in the western classic of great waste. Wupeng, Wuwei, Wuji, Wugu, Wuzhen, Wuli, Wudi, Wuxie, Wuluo and so on, went to the world from here. All kinds of drugs are growing here. When they go to the world, they should also) collect some to treat people. Therefore, the mountain is also known as "ladder", "fairy road" and "fairyland on earth". It is said that this mountain is a mountain where "climbing is the spirit", "climbing is God", "climbing can not die", "climbing can make wind and rain", "producing immortal medicine".
In history, many monks and sages stopped here. Since the song, yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties, the story of the founder of Jiufeng has been spreading. In the past, Jiufeng Mountain awed the officials and the people. It seemed that they sincerely sought things from the mountain, but they defended the people to eliminate disasters, prayed for rain and prayed for children. The temple materials are also different. The temples in the mountains used too much iron tile and huge wood, which became an ideal raw material for legislation and steelmaking during the Great Leap Forward period.
Since 1985, the mountain has been developed into a provincial-level natural scenic spot. Religious circles are actively restoring temples and adding infinite luster to Jiufeng Mountain.
Among the peaks, the flame peak is particularly peculiar. During the period, there are deep canyons, swarms of waterfalls, clear springs, rhymed mountains and islands, colorful primeval forests, unpredictable cloud sea and Buddha light; azaleas are in full bloom in spring, as bright as the morning glow, and in winter, they are wrapped in red and enchanting. The Daoists and Buddhists vied for occupation. In the Northern Song Dynasty, it was already a resort in Western Sichuan. The flame peak became the synonym of Jiufeng Mountain. The Jiufeng Mountain mentioned by later generations does not refer to the nine peaks, but refers to the flame peak.
