About Jingjiang Prince City

Located in the center of Guilin City and built around the Solitary Beauty Peak, Jingjiang Prince City Scenic Area is a highest grade tourist resource in the city which was built on the site of the mansion of the Prince Jingjiang in Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). In the scenic area, the manmade sights embrace the natural beauty. The authentic work of the inscription "Guilin's Scenery Ranks First in the World" is found there. It is a typical representation of the culture and history of Guilin.

The Prince Jingjiang was the master of the present prince city. He was given the title by his grandfather Zhu Yuanzhang, the creator of Ming Dynasty. It took over 20 years to build his mansion and the history is longer than the Forbbiden City in Beijing. In the 257 years from the construction to destruction, all together 14 regional princes in 12 generations have lived in the mansion. In Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), it was served as the imperial examination hall. It was Sun Yat-sen's base camp during his north expedition. At present, it is a part of the campus of Guangxi Normal University.
