THESE FISH WON’T PASS UNDER THE BRIDGE – WHY?
Black Dragon Pool Park Black Dragon Pool Park is around 17 kms North of the city of Kunming, with the main feature being the Black Dragon Pool (not to be confused with the one of the same name at Lijiang). There are many other attractions in the park, including two Taoist Temples, Plum Garden, Azalea Valley, Red Maple forest, etc.. There is a very cool stream running throughout the park and you can follow it up through bonsai gardens, different plantations and different types of trees. An ancient legend lends the Black Dragon Pool in Kunming its name; it is said that a long time ago there were ten wicked dragons that caused much destruction and did great harm to people. One day, one of the Eight Immortals of the Chinese legend subdued nine of the dragons and jailed them in a tower. Only the youngest black dragon was left, charged with protecting and benefiting the people as the price of its freedom. This dragon is believed to be still living in the pool. The pool is divided into two parts by a bridge, and although the water is connected, the two sides are different colours and the fish in either side never swim to the opposite part of the pool. Moreover, for hundreds of years the pool has never dried up, even in drought years.
