Xihui Park
More Photos from Xihui Park @ Wuxi
Covering an area of 45 square kilometres, the Xihui Park is set on the western edge of Wuxi between Xi Shan and Hui Shan. The park is most famous for its artificial lake surrounded by paved paths and the seven-story Dragon Light Pagoda (Longguang ta) on the top of Xi Shan. The octagonal pagoda was first built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644AD) but burned down during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911AD). The current one is a brick and wood replica. However, it still offers a bird's eye view over the city and Taihu Lake.

Huishan Hill is the highest point in Wuxi, Another name for this famous hill is Nine Dragons (Jiulongshan) as its nine hilltops look like dancing dragons. According to a fairy tale, nine sons of the Dragon King fell asleep after playing ball and turned into the nine peaks of Huishan. There are a dozen famous springs on the hill, including the "second spring under heaven" and Dragon's Eye Spring (Longyanquan),Chunshen Gully, Huishan Temple, and Gold Lotus Bridge (Jinlianqiao). In 1958 the hill was linked by a manmade lake with Tin Hill (Xishan) to become Xihui Park.
