In order to find the elixir of immortality, Shihuangfuzheng has made many East patrols to this place.

One coin is Taishou Liu Chong, the word Zurong. The Western Han Dynasty Qi mourned the descendants of Mouping Hou Liu Tong, the grandson of Liu Fei, the Hui King, and Mouping people of the Eastern Han Dynasty. After Liu Chong was elected as a filial piety, he served as prefect of Dongping Ling, Taishou of Yuzhang, Taishou of Guijie, Zongzheng, Dahongqi, Sikong and Lieutenant Stu. The incumbent auditors are punctual, and have made remarkable achievements in eliminating harsh government decrees and prohibiting illegal acts of officials. When he was promoted to Beijing, five or six old men with fair eyebrows from Shanyin County came to see him off and each of them brought money and Baiwen to him. Again and again, only one of them was chosen and accepted. Later generations called him "one coin is too strict". "The Tomb of Liu Chong is located in Judao," said Mouping, a chronicle of the Wei Dynasty. In the early Qing Dynasty, Yang Weiqiao, an official who supervised the imperial history, wrote a poem inscribing Liu Chong's tomb in Judao. Throwing the sea floor to the envoy, Jubo won a good name."
