About Zhenjiang

When talking about Zhenjiang, most people will naturally associate it with the legend of the "White Lady flooding Jinshan Temple.” Although Jiangnan Ancient City is not as beautiful as the other "Jiangnan" cities (meaning cities south of the Yangtze), it still has its own unique cultural heritage. The old streets, full of charming historical architecture, make you feel like you are in an old movie. The aromatic vinegar of Zhenjiang is also a symbol of the city, and when paired with the local specialty crab dumplings, the taste is very sweet and fresh! Zhenjiang is so beautiful that it makes people green with envy that they cannot live here.

Trip Moments

I havent been to Xijindu. I cant really understand Zhenjiang. Its no exaggeration to say this. Xijindu is an old street. Zhenjiang retains the most complete and most monumental area. The Zhaoguan Stone Tower is the oldest stone street in the country.
When you listen to the name, you know that it used to be a ferry crossing the Yangtze River. In history, this ferry was incredible. It was the only ferry crossing to Jiangbei for a long time.
As early as 1500 years ago, during the Six Dynasties, there were fixed routes to and from Jiangbei. During the unprecedented Yongjia Nandu period, more than half of the northern migrants landed here. The old street of
Xijindu began in the Six Dynasties period. Nanjing, which is not far from Zhenjiang, was the capital, and Zhenjiang was also greatly developed. This old street can find traces from the Six Dynasties to the Qing Dynasty.
This is called "Garlic Mountain Cross" in the Three Kingdoms. It was once known as "Jinlingdu" in the Tang Dynasty. It was called "Xijindu" after the Song Dynasty. It was originally close to the Yangtze River, and the river was flowing under the feet. After the Qing Dynasty, due to the silt of the river beach, the river bank gradually moved northward. The current riverside is more than 300 meters away from Xijindu.
Song Xining first year (1068) In the spring, Wang Anshi was called to Beijing, and went from Xijin to Zhoubei. He wrote the famous poem "Boating Guazhou": Jingkou Guazhou Yishui, Zhongshan only separated Heavy mountain. The spring breeze and the south bank of the Green River, when the moon will shine.

Jinshan Temple is one of the most famous scenic spots in Zhenjiang. Zhenjiang is located on the south bank of the Yangtze River. It is opposite to Yangzhou on the north bank. There are several hills in the urban area. Among them, Jinshan, Beigushan and Jiaoshan on the Yangtze River are the most famous.
This is an ancient temple built in the Eastern Jin Dynasty. It has a history of more than 1600 years. The Jinshan Mountain where Jinshan Temple is located is originally a small island in the Yangtze River. It was slowly connected with the land in the Qing Dynasty due to sedimentation. . The legend of the
white snake passing the water in Jinshan is here. At that time, Master Fahai was a monk at Jinshan Temple, and there was a Fahai Cave in Jinshan Temple. However, the Fahai in the White Snake is very different from the Fahai in the real world. Fahai does have this person and is a sorghum.
Jinshan is only 40 meters above sea level, along the steps, the mountain to the top of the mountain. The Cishou Tower on the mountain was first built in the Qiliang era of the Southern Dynasties. It was originally two pagodas, standing opposite each other in the north and south. The existing tower was built in the twenty-sixth year of Guangxu (1900), and the brick body can be used to climb the top.
Legend is the 60th birthday of Empress Dowager Cixi. In order to celebrate the birthday, Liu Kun, the governor of the two rivers, specially went to Beijing to see the Empress Dowager. He said: "Lafayette is a 60-year-old birthday. There is no gift in the humble official. It is just a pagoda built in Zhenjiang Jinshan, Jiangnan. It is named Cishou Tower. I wish you a long life. .

When it comes to Zhenjiang, it is estimated that many people will think of Zhenjiang vinegar. In fact, Zhenjiang is also a historical and cultural city with a history of more than 3,500 years. It is located at the intersection of the Yangtze River and the Grand Canal. It is connected by mountains and rivers and has beautiful scenery. It is known as the urban forest.
Jinshan is located about 2 kilometers northwest of Zhenjiang City, 43.7 meters above sea level, covers an area of 10 hectares. It was originally an island standing in the Yangtze River. The poem of Zhang Zhen in the Tang Dynasty "sees the shadow of the tree, the sound of the two sides of the river" It was the portrayal of Jinshan that year. Jinshan is famous for its Jinshan Temple. Jinshan Temple was built in the Eastern Jin Dynasty and has a history of more than 1,600 years. Formerly known as Zexin Temple, also known as Longyou Temple. Emperor Kangxi of Qing Dynasty once wrote the "Jiangtian Temple", but since the Tang Dynasty, people have called Jinshan Temple, which is the birthplace of the Chinese Buddhist Buddhist scriptures, the worship of Buddhas and the pursuit of the undead. The Jinshan Temple Temple faces the west and is built on the mountain. The temple is connected with the pavilion and the pavilion is full of golden buildings. It is impossible to peep at the original appearance of the mountain. Therefore, there is a saying that "Jinshan Temple is wrapped in mountains".
There are more than 30 scenic spots and monuments in the entire Jinshan Scenic Area. There is a legend in each place, such as the White Mountain Temple, the Red Lady Temple, the Liang Hongyu Drum Fighting Jin Bing, the Yue Fei Jinshan Temple and so on. The relationship between the time is not all viewed, but it is roughly a circle.

Among the three mountains of Zhenjiang, the number of Jiaoshan is the largest. There are quite a few legends about Jiaoshan. I know it when I collect it online. I will not repeat it here. To visit the Mount Jiaoshan, you need to take a boat. The cost of a round trip is included in the ticket for 65 yuan. If you don't want to queue, you can take a speedboat and buy a ticket. Crossing the river is 10 yuan per person for one way (2 people will be sent), and going to Beigushan Pier will be 60 yuan per person for one way (3 people will be sent). 80 yuan (3 people from the start). The Wanfo Pagoda on Jiaoshan was built in 1998. When the weather is good, Dengwan Pagoda can overlook Jinshan and Beigu Mountain. I could not reach the top of the day.
Jiaoshan Scenic Area has temples (Dinghui Temple), Beilin (Yubei Pavilion, "Yu Heming" monument), ancient fort, Jiaoshan Palace (many relics and Emperor Qianlong), bonsai garden, Wanfota . Among them, Beilin is the first monument forest in the south of the Yangtze River. This should be a paradise for calligraphy lovers, worthy of careful tasting. It is recommended that you do your homework in advance or pay close attention to the foreword of the Forest of Stones. It is worthwhile to find a few of them. Such as Tang "Wei Fa Shibei", Song "Zhang Yu's Epitaph", Ming Songmi is on the "Lanting Post", Qing "Cheng Jian Tang Fa" and so on. Personally, the most intensive inscription on all inscriptions is "Yu Heming". It is called "the king of the monument" and "the ancestor of the big character".
This attraction is for 2 hours.
