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.

Mount Jin is divided into the two main areas of the Jinshan (Mount Jin) Temple on the east side and the Zhong Cold Springs on the west, separated by Yiquan Road. Jinshan Temple is the main attraction. Many famous stories take place at the Jinshan Temple. Madame White Snake Bai Suzhen magically flooded the temple, and famous female general Liang Hongyu beat the war drums here and led her army in a battle that would change the course of a war. When you climb Jinshan Temple, you can look out over the Zhenjiang cityscape. The Zhong Cold Springs are a living spring where you can still see chains of bubbles coming up out of the water.
Jinshan Temple
4.5/5
2,817 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.
Xijindu Ancient Street
4.5/5
1,709 Reviews
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. There are few people and it is very quiet. Staying at a youth hostel here is a unique experience.

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.

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.

Trip Moments

Blue Tulip   
I have traveled to Jinshan Temple many years ago, and now I have almost no impression. I vaguely remember to take pictures, and I dont know where to go. I am now in Jinshan Temple, the incense is still lingering, and the tourists are endless. Jinshan Temple is not a general temple pattern. The temple facade is located in the Yangtze River, the temple and the pavilion, and is built in the middle of the mountain. It has the reputation of Jiangzhong Furong. Along the steps, the gates are majestic and quiet. We are trying to find the legend of the water-filled Jinshan in the "White Snake Biography", and the black clouds outline the beautiful love picture of Bai Niangzi and Xu Xian. The Temple of Heavenly Kings of Maitreya was guarded by the four King Kongs. When you stepped out of the threshold, you will see the Great Hall of the Kings. In the middle is the Buddha of Sakyamuni, the Pharmacist Buddha, and the Amitabha. On both sides, there are fifty-six sons of different forms to worship Buddha. The color of the corridor is mainly blue and green. The sacred traces of the ancient temples in the middle of the river lead to countless people's piety towards Buddhism. The rain washes the hearts of every person, and makes the heart full of calm, optimism, open-mindedness, non-indifferent and unambiguous, non-quiet and far-reaching. Appropriateness is the attitude and way of life pursued by mortals. Traffic 1. You can reach the bus No. 2, 8, 17, 34, 35, 102, 104, 115 in Zhenjiang. 2. After the train station exits the station, it is 100 meters ahead. You can reach the Jinshan Scenic Area by bus No. 2. This bus crosses the Zhenjiang city area and you can experience the charm of the historical and cultural town Jiangjiang along the way! 3. If you get off at Zhenjiang Nanmen Station, you can walk to Da Shikou and transfer to the 2nd or 104th terminal. 4.

Among the three mountains of Zhenjiang, the number of Jiaoshan is the largest. There are quite a few legends about Jiaoshan. I know it when I collect it online. I will not repeat it here. To visit the Mount Jiaoshan, you need to take a boat. The cost of a round trip is included in the ticket for 65 yuan. If you don't want to queue, you can take a speedboat and buy a ticket. Crossing the river is 10 yuan per person for one way (2 people will be sent), and going to Beigushan Pier will be 60 yuan per person for one way (3 people will be sent). 80 yuan (3 people from the start). The Wanfo Pagoda on Jiaoshan was built in 1998. When the weather is good, Dengwan Pagoda can overlook Jinshan and Beigu Mountain. I could not reach the top of the day. Jiaoshan Scenic Area has temples (Dinghui Temple), Beilin (Yubei Pavilion, "Yu Heming" monument), ancient fort, Jiaoshan Palace (many relics and Emperor Qianlong), bonsai garden, Wanfota . Among them, Beilin is the first monument forest in the south of the Yangtze River. This should be a paradise for calligraphy lovers, worthy of careful tasting. It is recommended that you do your homework in advance or pay close attention to the foreword of the Forest of Stones. It is worthwhile to find a few of them. Such as Tang "Wei Fa Shibei", Song "Zhang Yu's Epitaph", Ming Songmi is on the "Lanting Post", Qing "Cheng Jian Tang Fa" and so on. Personally, the most intensive inscription on all inscriptions is "Yu Heming". It is called "the king of the monument" and "the ancestor of the big character". This attraction is for 2 hours.
