A. Zheshan Park

    Zheshan Hill, a hill in Zheshan Park, lying in the centre of Wuhu city, occupies 47.87 hectares with an elevation of 221 meters. It is said to be the spot where Gan Jiang, a renowned sword-smith two thousand years ago cast swords, turned the hill rocks into reddish brown with the flame and smoke. Therefore, it is named after Zhe, a Chinese character meaning the color of reddish brown. Now it has become an ideal vantage point for a bird’s eye view of the city.

    Zheshan Pagoda is located in the backyards of Guangji Temple on the slope of the hill. Built in 1065, it is a brick and wooden Buddhist pagoda with five storeys, six flying corners and outer walls inlaid with magnificently-made brick sculptures of Buddha. It is now ranged among the provincial preservation units of historical and cultural relics.

    Inside the park, there are 220 varieties of plants, 100 thousand trees, grassland of 4.1 thousand sq. m and aesthetic forest of 10.4 thousand sq. m.
