Bajingtai is a well-known tourist attraction in the old city of Zhangzhou, Jiangxi. It is located in the Eighth Park in the northern part of the old city. It is a tower on the ancient city wall and was originally used for military purposes. Bashijingtai was built by Kong Zongtang during the Jiayou Period of the Northern Song Dynasty (1056-1063). Kong Zongxi was a native of Qufu, Shandong, and the forty-sixth generation of Confucius. At that time, Confucius was the army of Zhangzhou. After the construction of the Bajingtai, Kong Zongxi drew the "Eight Maps of Zhangzhou" and asked Su Dongpo to write a poem. Su Dongpo wrote "The Eight Diagrams of Zhangzhou Eight Horizons and Preface" and "The Post-order of Eight Horizons". And put forward the concept of eight scenic spots in Zhangzhou, which is imitated by the later generations of tourism. History has been burnt down many times in history. The current Bajingtai was rebuilt in 1983. It is a Song Dynasty style. The tower has three floors. Visitors can climb to the attic to enjoy the scenery. Zhangjiang and Gongjiang meet here, forming a Lijiang River after confluence. The Lancang River flows into the Yangtze River through the entire territory of Jiangxi, and is also the mother river of Jiangxi. The eight rivers on the stage enjoy the magnificent river view. Su Dongpo did not go to Zhangzhou when he wrote the poem, but after 17 years, Su Dongpo was taken by the eunuch Lingnan. Passing through Zhangzhou was a special trip to the Eight Horizons. He lamented that the poem written in the past was not able to tell the truth, so Write a follow-up.

Where is Zhangzhou? I believe that some foreign friends do not check the information, do not check the map can not tell why, this city is a famous guest, the history is very long, more rare is the ancient city wall with a history of more than 2,000 years in the city center near the river . The Chuzhou ancient city wall was built in the Han Dynasty, and the existing part was built during the Northern Song Dynasty. The ancient city wall of Zhangzhou is a brick wall structure. Although it has undergone dynasty changes and erosion of wind and rain, it has not been devastated. Walking on the trail, the seven-meter-high, 3.6-kilometer-long ancient city wall looks magnificent and vicissitudes. The mottled wall tells the history, and the green grass growing on the wall indicates the vitality of life. The ancient city wall of is the same as the ancient city walls of Pingyao, Xi'an, Xingcheng and Jingzhou. It is called the fifth largest city wall in China and the largest existing ancient city wall in the Jiangnan area. The ancient city walls along the Luzhou and surrounding areas include eight mirrors, ancient pontoon bridges, and Zaoxiang alleys. Whether it is the opposite of the river or the perspective of the city walls, the ancient walls of Luzhou are like an elegant dragon. In the city of Zhangzhou, it is like the patron saint of the city, witnessing the positive changes that are changing with each passing day. The dynasties have been repairing the ancient city walls of Zhangzhou, which is an invaluable treasure of Jiangxi. Because there is no famous big attraction in Zhangzhou, the ancient city wall of Zhangzhou has not received much attention, so visitors are very rare. There is no ticket gate at this ancient city wall. Visitors can freely climb the wall to overlook the square and feel the extraordinary charm of ancient architecture!
