English: Shou Qiu ("Longevity Hill"), a Song Dynasty historical site near Jiuxian Village on the eastern outskirts of Qufu. It includes two giant turtle-borne steles with a small lake between them. As almost all turtles of these kind, the two turtles look to the south.

The western stele is known as the "Qing Shou ('Celebrate Longevity') Stele" (Qing Shou Bei, 庆寿碑).

The eastern stele is known as "Wan Ren Chou Stele" (万人愁碑).

Said to originally date to the Song Dynasty, the two steles were restored in 1992. At over 16 m tall, they are among the biggest in China.

The whole area is fenced in, the tops of the steles being seen from the outside.
