In the Slim West Lake scenic spot in Yangzhou, Jiangsu Province, there is a famous attraction called Xiaojin Mountain, which was originally an artificial rockery of the local salt merchants, but it is the highest place in the Slim West Lake because it is a river with Yangzhou. Zhenjiang has a famous "Jinshan", so it is named "Xiaojinshan".
When you come to the gate of "Xiaojinshan", you will definitely notice the "unique" stone lion here. It is different from the traditional stone lions that we are impressed with. The pair of stone lions are not only selling their heads, but also selling them. Still grinning, it looks so cute and interesting.
This pair of "Laughter Lions" has special characteristics of Jiangnan. It was built in the Ming Dynasty. It originally belonged to the Beilai Temple. It was moved to "Xiaojin Mountain" in 1961, and now it has become a symbol of many tourists who must take pictures and punch in "Slim West Lake". First, do you think this is a very cute stone lion that is different?
