Jianhu Lake Introduction

Also known as the Mirror Lake, the Jianhu Lake is located in the southwestern Shaoxing County. The lake presents an expanse of waters extending to the horizon. In the ancient times, the lake was 358 li (one li is 0.5 kilometer) around while today the Jianhu Lake refers to the water system from the East Kuahu bridge west of Shaoxing City to the West Lake Bridge at Hutang, encompassing an area of 50 square kilometers. Since the Tang Dynasty (618-907) when the art of poetry matured and prospered, the Lake has been the subject of numerous poetic masterpieces.  The Sanshan Mountain (literally Three Mountains) is where Lu You, a Song poet, o­nce lived. The patriotic poet retired to the mountain and wrote numerous poems and essays there. Though time has changed, the lake retains its natural and cultural charms.
