Maicheng is in the territory of Lianghe Town, Dangyang City, Hubei Province, and is an important city in Chu State during the Eastern Zhou Dynasty. It was built in the Spring and Autumn Period when Chu Zhao Wang was built. In the 14th year of Zhou Jingwang (the first 506 years), Wu Guo attacked Chu State, Wu Zixu in order to break through the city, so he built the Yucheng and Mocheng on its left and right sides. The slang of "Dongxi Ximao, Maicheng self-breaking", the name of Maicheng came from this. For thousands of years, the city has been washed away by floods, and the sands have been covered and submerged. Maicheng now only has a wreckage, like a hill, lying on the banks of the Jushui River.
