Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/8

In the 12th year of Aigong Emperor in the Lu State of Spring and Autumn Period (482 BC), emissary minister sent by Lu State, Zigong, and emissary minister sent by Wu State, Mr. Zai, held a meeting declaring alliance between the two states. The two attendants built a mount to hold the ceremony. So it is called Alliance Mound.

The river at the foot of the mound is very clear with ripples
