Gantang Lake


Gantang Lake, situated in downtown Jiujiang, was an important military base during the Three Kingdoms period (220-280).

Gantang Lake is divided into two parts by a dike and bridge built in 821. The Sixian Bridge still stands on the causeway which one crosses to reach Yangyue Pavilion on the low hill overlooking the lake. It is well stocked with silver and grass carp, and seagulls skim its surface.

Yanshui Pavilion is linked to the shore by a zigzag bridge.Iit was built in 815 Bai Juyi, a famous poet of the Tang Dynasty, during his unhappy posting in Jiujiang.
