Yishan Mountain is located in the southeast area of Zoucheng, a county-level city in Jining. The mountain stands 582 meters above sea level and was formed about 2.5 billion years ago. It was considered to be among the nine famous historic and cultural mountains in ancient China. Many historic figures, including Confucius, Mencius, the first Chinese emperor Qinshihuang, and poets Li Bai and Du Fu, visited the mountain and left a total of more than 300 carved stones and stone tablets on the cliffs of the mountain.
