Yanzhou Ancient Town
Yanzhou Ancient Town, which is located in the eastern part of Jiande city, Hangzhou, boasts a history of over 1,800 years and dates back to the Three Kingdoms (220-280) period.
With the Xin'an River, Lanjiang River and Fuchun River meeting in the ancient town, water transport was highly prosperous, especially in the Song Dynasty (960-1279).
The town was also a gathering spot for many literati during ancient times. These literati include Yan Ziling of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220), who was a nobleman indifferent to fame and fortune, and General Sun Quan from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, who was known for his strong morals.
