Jiezi Ancient Town

With a history of more than 1000 years, Jiezi Ancient Town (aka Street sub-town) is located under the Fengqi Mountain, 25 km northwest of the Changzhou City, and adjacent to the famous Taoist Mount Qingcheng.

The town’s location has the "mountains and water" combination that is so appreciated in China, and makes for one of those day trips outside the city where you can take in a little nature and a little history all in the same visit. There is an easy walking trail along the river that will take you along the mountain side and over a couple of bridges. There is one rather low and rickety bamboo foot bridge that you can also cross if you dare.

More than 20 relic sites can be found in the ancient town including the ancient streets, Guangyan Buddha Hall, Tangqiu Former Residence (Tangqiu, a poet of the Tang Dynasty), Fengqi Shan Scenic Area, Auspicious Dragon Bridge, Ancient Weijiang Dock, Original Forests, the age-old gingko trees and Nan trees, the Wasterper Library, and Shanggu Temple. Legend has it that Zhu Yunwen, the second emperor of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) once lived in Shanggu Temple during his mysterious disappearance period.

Jiezi Ancient Town is under development and quite a bit of construction is still going on, especially in the old-style town section, but the place is quickly growing in popularity as a leisure destination.
