In ancient China, this school points to doctors, in particular famous ones like Eastern Han’s Zhang Zhongjing and Hua Tuo, Tang’s Sun Simiao the King of Medicine. Bian Que in the Spring and Autumn Period stood out of these doctors through the ages. Qin Yueren was called Bianque because his superb medicine, in the hearts of the people, matched well the magical doctor in the primeval past.
The sculpture in the center of the square shows how the wondrous doctor took his patient’s pulse. According to The Book of the Grand Historian, Bianque first applied pulse-based diagnosis in clinical treatment. The forefather of Chinese medicine was the first of his kind officially recorded in history. He initiated four diagnostic methods: watching, smelling, asking and pulse-taking. Such tremendous contributions have earned him a niche in history.
