In the Ming and Qing dynasties, at each Chongyang Festival on the ninth day of the ninth lunar month, thousands of people from the townships nearby would go to Tianma Mountain and Hengshan Mountain.

It is recorded in old records that more peddlers selling mountains products would come from Jiangsu and Zhejiang at each Chongyang Festival, forming a bazaar. This traditional cultural activity and bazaar disappeared shortly after the founding of the People's Republic of China.
