In the ancient times, there are five elephants on the outskirts of Nanning, who came to the world to eliminate the wild beasts and poisonous insects, and protect the local people. However they were changed into rocks after violating the gods from the heaven. 
Another famous legend is about Wuxiang Ridge. According to legend, in the Warring States Period, Emperor Qin Shi Huang brought five elephants from Lingnan area to manage the floods in the south and ensure the city’s safety. But the five elephants stopped walking when they were approaching Nanning. Qin Shi Huang patted the elephant's buttocks but useless. He couldn't help being furious. He woke up and found it was just a dream. 
The awakened Qin Shi Huang dubiously sent people to the south to ask for the news to find out that 5 more elephant-like mountains appeared in the south. Since then, the floods in Nanning have decreased magically. So, Wuxiang Ridge or Five Elephants Ridge has become an auspicious image to protect Nanning.
