The castle has been built for 18 years, including the moat under the mountain, the garden square, the cistern, the sky palace, etc., and the scale is huge. According to the data, the reservoir can be used for one year in the palace after being filled with rainwater. When the water level in the pool is too high, the overflowing water will flow from the top of the mountain to the garden below the mountain and will be diverted to different outlets and form a fountain. Drainage is also a beautiful scenery. After the moat, climbing up the hill, towering lush trees, weathered mottled brick red boulders, steep stone ladders, can not help but marvel, how strong people were thousands of years ago chose to be on the rock Building the kingdom. After reaching the mid-levels, you will reach the lion's claw platform under the giant rock, and the huge lion claw gate is in front of you! Although it has been weathered and eroded until only the lion's claws are visible, the tour guide gave the flowers a look at the restoration of the city gates. The fierce and majestic lion's head and the lion's claws were incomparable! , , , The rock-top platform covers an area of nearly 2 hectares. It has a reservoir, a banquet hall, a council hall, a living room for the king and family, and a lost dynasty. It is the scene of the glory. On the way to the top, you can enter the caves halfway up the mountain to enjoy the precious "half-naked ladies' natural murals". According to reports, there are more than 500 color pictures around the Lion Rock. After being eroded by the wind and rain, there are only 22 pieces that are now visible.
