According to legend, in 250 AD a Taoist monk believed that a dragon was living in a certain spring not far from Hangchow. The monk begged the dragon to come to the rescue of the poor farmers who were suffering from a crippling drought. Instantly, the clouds came rushing in from every side and brought a drenching rain. An old temple next to the spring is known as Dragon’s Well Monastery.
