Brief Introduction to the Scenic Spot

The Jiuquan Famous Historical Site of the Western Han Dynasty covers an area of 270,000 square meters. It's a classical garden. It stems from the history of the Western Han Dynasty and shows the strong power of the Western Han Dynasty. It's a classical garden, which blends the beauty of the south of the lower reaches of the Changjiang River. It can't be tested that how many years the ancient wine spring has been in the garden. However, the name of Jiuquan really has a history of more than 2,100 years according to the historical record. It's rare to name a county after the name of a spring in the whole country.

Jiuquan, which was one of the passes and four counties set up by Emperor Wudi of the Western Han Dynasty, witnessed the development of Suzhou. It witnessed that the Western Han Dynasty opened up new territory and stood erect in the east as a giant of the world. The lightness and shade of the spring stand for the rise and decline of Jiuquan; the flourish and drying-up of the spring stand for the vicissitude of Jiuquan. Hence, the Wine Spring is the core and carrier of the local culture in Jiuquan. The spring was dug in the Han and Tang Dynasties. People protected the spring and opened up the scene in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. From the Hanwu Flourishing Age to the Zhengguan Flourishing Age, the Wine Spring became famous in the world. Renovated four times on a large scale after the foundation of China, the Jiuquan Famous Historical Site of the Western Han Dynasty looks more graceful and majestic.

  The whole scenic spot is divided into three areas: the historic and cultural area, the mountain and lake scenic spot, the rest and recreation area for rest and recreation. Eight scenery spots have been built. They are the Jiuquan Famous Historical Site of the Western Han Dynasty, the Jiuquan Resort, Qilian Chengbo, Lubanwanzhou, Yanyushenchu, Quyuancanxiu, and Gongzhaoriyue.
