Jining boasts ancient history as the stomping grounds of the "Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors". The ancestors of the Chinese nation - the Yellow Emperor, Shaohao, and Shaokang - were born here. During the Spring and Autumn and Warring States periods, five great sages - Confucius, Mencius, Yan Hui, Zengzi, and Zisi - also originated from Jining. The city attracted literary giants like Li Bai and Du Fu, leaving their mark.

Jining is also home to eight ancient scenic spots: Tietu's Pure Buddhist Temple, Taibai's Evening View, Moquan's Green Spring, Fengtai's Sunset Glow, Guanzhuang's Morning Mist, Nanch's Lotus Pond, Xixi's Fishing Songs, and Hulin's Evening Crossing.
