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.

Popular Attractions in Zhenjiang

Jinshan Temple
4.5/5
2,816 Reviews
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.

Featured Neighbourhood
Xijindu Ancient Street is a place with a lot of character; it is full of old buildings with a richly historic feel. As you stroll through this ancient mountainside street, you will experience the face of the old city of Zhenjiang and sample its delicious “pot cover noodles.” The night-time scenery is beautiful.

Trip Moments

River2014   
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.
