Narrative

Two huge stone columns on top of the Pingdingshan Bandao. The steep one in the north whose top is flat is shaped square, and is 146m in elevation, while the one in the south is a little bit smaller. The magnificent scenes and conspicous appearance make the place a symbol to help you get your bearings while you are lost. It was named when surveying and mapping in 1986.
