Crown Cave is the most famous scenic spot in the area. The cave got its name because it is located beneath the crown-shaped hill. It is also known as Guangyan (re: Light) Cave because there is a gleam of light from the ceiling of the pitch dark cave. As the cave is dark, the government has installed lights inside the cave so that tourists can admire the rock formation inside the cave without having to bring their own torchlight. LOL.

Inside the cave, visitors can admire the naturally created cave and rocks. There is a calligraphy drawn on this particular rock.
