Baling Square is located at the bank of beautiful Dongting Lake. You can travel around Bianhe Street, a food court in Yueyang. It is also one the most popular places among visitors. The landmark of the square is a 16-meter-high statue showing "Hou Yi is shooting a arrow towards the Ba Sake" which is from the myth that the Ba Sake ate an elephant in the Classic of Mountains and Rivers. Legend has it that Hou Yi killed the Ba Snake in Dongting Lake. Yueyang is also known as "Baling," because "Hou Yi killed the Ba Snake for the safety of people."
