West Lake Park, also known as Minghan Park, is located in the Shigu District of Hengyang, Hunan Province. It has a history of more than 1,000 years. The park has many scenic spots such as the Xia Minghan Scenic Area, the Zhou Dunyi Lotus Scenic Area, and the Sino-Japanese Friendship Cherry Orchard. Located on an island in the middle of the lake in West Lake Park, the Lotus Pavilion was built to commemorate the Song dynasty philosopher Zhou Dunyi. The pavilion is dignified and beautiful; its interior is replete with lotus culture. The screen in the middle of the first floor is engraved with Zhou Dunyi's famous poetic essay, "On the Love of the Lotus."
