Hello, everyone. I am Huang Xiaoyan, head of the Xihu District People’s Government in Nanchang. Today, I am glad to recommend to you my hometown, Xihu in Nanchang. Xihu District, located near the Ganjiang River and the Poyang Lake, is the central area of Nanchang, capital city of east China’s Jiangxi province. Xihu is known as “Nanchang in Miniature”, acclaimed as the “Pearl of Jiangxi”.
Next, I’ll show you around Xihu.
Now I am in the building of the Wanshou Palace Historic and Cultural Neighborhood, where stand numerous well-preserved Jiangxi-style buildings of this kind with a long history and unique features. Please join me and have a look.
Wanshou Palace, also known as Jiangxi Guild, was established in honor of Xu Zhenjun, the “Master of Blessing” and Taoist priest living more than 1,600 years ago. In addition, over 1000 buildings of this kind are found all over the world.The Iron Pillar Wanshou Place in Xihu is their forerunner, and birthplace of Jiangxi guild culture. The neighborhood, featuring history and religion, culture and art, and sightseeing, is under renovation.Here you can hear the moving legend of Xu Zhenjun’s “locking the dragon around the iron pillar”, and savour cultural charm of thousands of years in Xihu.
After touring Wanshou Palace, now we have come to Shengjin Tower.The tower,built in the Tang Dynasty more than 1100 years ago, was the guardian of Nanchang people against flooding,as legend has it that dragons used to create flooding here. The place is famous for its long history, distinctive landscape, and rich food.The prosperity has been reproduced of the millennial Tower and the age-old commercial street.
The newly-built Shengjin Tower Food Street, with a total length of 660 meters, is where you can feast on a great variety of brand snacks from all over China, and experience unique charm of Nanchang and Jiangxi culture. On festivals and holidays, you can also appreciate temple fair activities with Shengjin Tower as the core. And this is not only the most popular traditional folk custom for locals, but also the stage for international contact in Xihu District, whose prosperous future knows no bounds.
