Hibiscus Pavilion has been a place for artists to write poems and do paintings. Famous poet Wang Changlin had a farewell dinner here when he was demoted to be the governor of Longbiao County. Wang Changlin wrote his famous poem: With this cold night-rain hiding the river, you have come into Wu. In the level dawn, all alone, you will be starting for the mountains of Chu. Answer, if they ask of me at Loyang: "One- hearted as ice in a crystal vase."
