Zhenhai Tower Introduction

Zhenhai Tower, namely Wanghai Tower, was named Wangjiang Tower before. The name was changed into current o­ne due to the wide channel of the Zhuhai River. And it is also called the Five Storey Pagoda because it has five floors all together.
There are steles of different dynasties standing along the corridor in front of the tower and 12 ancient cannons for exhibition o­n the right.
The tower was built by Zhu Liangzu, the Yongjia Marquis of the Ming dynasty, in the 13th year of the reign of the Emperor Hongwu (1380 A.D.), when the Marquis extended the northern city wall to the Yuexiu Mountain and built a five-floor tower as a scene to reconstruct the Guangzhou city. The tower has been ruined 5 times and hence been rebuilt 5 times and now it is made of iron concrete, which is altered from woods in 1928. In 1929, it became Guangzhou Municipal Museum and renamed as Guangzhou Museum in 1950. Historic relics and materials are exhibited here in terms of dynasties, which reveal the development of Guangzhou over 2000 years.
