The grand structure is probably the best known on the list, but it’s not as packed as other famous attractions, and it makes a great backdrop for a pleasant and peaceful hike. On a good day, the seven-story pavilion, perched on the peak of the 78-meter Lion Mountain, delivers a panoramic view over the Yangtze River and downtown.


Yuejiang Pavilion, meaning the “River Viewing Pavilion” in Chinese, has been mentioned by a number of ancient literati, but for some reason the actual structure never really existed. The current pavilion was built in 2001 with modern techniques to fit  the ancient descriptions.


The scenic area is encircled by the Lulong River and the city moat on three sides and by the city wall built in the Ming Dynasty on the fourth side, taking on a spectacular look of "the city wall surrounded by water, the hill encircled by the city wall and the tower supported by the hill." There are over 30 other historic relics and cultural scenic spots in the area.
