Zhenjiang, Jiangsu, China

Zhenjiang is not a tourist city in China. The city is not known for many historical sites or destinations. However, Jinshan Temple is probably the most famous and well known by almost everyone in China. This is due to the story of the White Snake, a love story set in the Song Dynasty. One of the main villain in the book is the lead monk of Jinshan Temple in Zhenjiang. In the book, Jinshan Temple was flooded by the White Snake.

In our short stop in Zhenjiang, we decided to see Jinshan Temple. It was a nice temple complex with a pagoda built during the Song Dynasty and later rebuilt. There were a lot to see even though we are not into the religious stuffs. Of course there were the usual commercialization of the legend and story. However, it was not as bad as other places we visited in China. Overall, we liked Jinshan Temple and was happy to visit.
