Yingtan

Yingtan (鹰潭) is a small city in the east of China's Jiangxi province.

Near the city of Yingtan is the resort area Longhushan[?] (龙虎山) which purports to be the birthplace of Taoism (道教) and hence has great symbolic value to Taoists. The region has many interesting temples, cave complexes, mountains and villages. It is considered by many to be the best-kept secret of Jiangxi tourism.

The placename means "The Pond of Eagle".
