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

Mao Mountain
4.5/5
2,736 Reviews
Mountain
Mao Mountain is where the Shangqing School (or Supreme Clarity movement) of Taoism originated, and the Taoists of Mao Mountain are known throughout China. Historic temples dot the mountain, though most of the ones you see today are modern reconstructions following successive wars fought in the area. The most famous of the temples are known together as “the monasteries of Mao Mountain”: Jiuxiao Wanfu Gong (“Myriad Blessings Palace of the Nine Heavens”) and Yuanfu Wanning Gong. The three peaks of Mao Mountain standing in a row are a splendid sight. From south to north, they include Elder Mao Peak, Second Mao Peak, and Third Mao Peak.
Mount Jin
4.5/5
4,106 Reviews
Temple
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
3,059 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
1,823 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.
