The name Qixing Yan (Seven Star Cave) was given to the cave by the seven karst towers of this park. Those towers form a pattern on the map which resembles the group of stars called Big Dipper or Ursa Major (Big Bear). The northern four towers are called Putuo Shan, the southern three Yueya Shan. The three towers of Yueya Shan contain many large caves, one of them is Qixing Yan.

The cave is visited since Sui and Tang dynasties. It is famous for the whiteness and transparency of its speleothems.
