A Brief Introduction of Zhenjiang
Zhenjiang, formally romanized as Chinkiang, is a prefecture-level city in Jiangsu Province, China. It lies on the southern bank of the Yangtze River near its intersection with the Grand Canal. It is opposite Yangzhou (to its north) and between Nanjing (to its west) and Changzhou (to its east). Zhenjiang was formerly the provincial capital of Jiangsu and remains as an important transportation hub.
Zhenjiang is most famous for its fragrant black vinegar. Chinese legend traces it to Heita, the son of Dukang, the supposed inventor of alcoholic beverages. Having forgotten about a vat of wine for 21 days, he found it had spoiled but now possessed a pleasant sour taste that could be used to compliment foods. The present recipe is said to date back 1400 years, with its major modern manufacturer—the Jiangsu Hengshun Vinegar Industry Co.—dating to 1840.
Other local specialties include crab cream bun, Chinkiang pork, and pickled vegetables. Formerly, households in Zhenjiang would prepare for the new year by eating a red-bean dish and avoiding rice. One bowl of beans was left on the table to feed the home's flies, from the belief that they would then avoid disturbing the family during the new year festivities.
A natural spring in a park on the edge of Zhenjiang has been famed since the Tang (7th–9th century) as the best in Jiangsu for making tea. It is now marketed as the "First Spring under Heaven".
Zhenjiang has three famous mountains, Jinshan, Jiaoshan and Beigushan.
About Jinshan Temple
Jinshan Temple is the main scenic attraction on Jin Mountain. The grand buildings of the temple complex are built against the mountainside in such a way that when you look toward the mountain in the distance, all you see is the temple complex, an effect popularly described as “Jinshan Temple wrapping up Jin Mountain.” Many folk stories particularly attract people to Jinshan Temple. This was the temple that was magically flooded by Madame White Snake Bai Suzhen in the Legend of the White Snake. It is also where the famous female general Liang Hongyu beat the war drums and led her army in a battle that would change the course of a war. Climb Cishou Tower and the mountain peak pavilion for a panoramic view of the temple complex and the nearby city of Zhenjiang.
Jiaoshan is a small hill located on the banks of the Yangtze River. It is home to a large collection of ancient trees, stone inscriptions, and temples. Dinghui Temple is located on the top of the hill. The Qing dynasty Qianlong Emperor stayed here during a visit to the south of China. The top of the temple affords spectacular views over the Yangtze River. Next to the temple there is a collection of more than 400 ancient stone Chinese stele tablets, second only to Beilin Museum in Xi'an.
About Beigushan Park
Beigushan Park is home to a temple that features in the famous Chinese historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms. It was here that the warlord Liu Bei met the Chinese noble Lady Sun. For generations, the park has attracted visitors who wish to follow in the footsteps of these famous characters. Behind the temple are a number of buildings that offer a spectacular view over the Yangzte River and the surrounding hills. It is one of the national key scenic spots with reputation of“the first landscape of China”.
