Louguan Pavilion is the earliest important sacred places of Chinese Taoism, and the origin of Niryuha Taoist, because its pavilion for lecturing of scriptures is like a boat floating in a sea of bamboos and spruces, so it's commonly called Louguan Pavilion. Laozi wrote the 5000-word Tao Te Ching here, and built a platform, also called Shuojing Pavilion, on the high ground south of the tower. Currently Louguan Pavilion covers Louguan scenic area, Jinniuping scenic area, Muziping scenic area and Jiuyu scenic area. There are over 30 palaces and abbeys, which are surrounded by green bamboos and luxuriant trees.
