Fushan (Fu Hill) Park

Fu Hill (location of Fushan Park), also named Long (Dragon) Hill, is like a scroll painting which depicts the long history of Shaoxing. A wealth of historical and cultural relics are preserved here. The hill with the other two hills stands like the three legs of tripod. People used to describe the scene as "coiling dragon and crouching tiger". With it, the ancient city of Shaoxing looks most magnificent.

King Yue's Terrace
King Yue's Terrace

The King Yue's Palace in Fu Hill was built in memory of Gou Jian. It is said that Gou Jian----the King of the Kingdom of Yue was defeated by the King of Kingdom of Wu and became Wu's captive. After Gou Jian returned to his own country, he slept on a pallet of brushwood and tasted the bitter gallbladder every day so as to harden his will, and he finally defeated his enemy. The Palace is magnificent and imposing. Scenes along the way as you climb Fu Hill and visit King Yue's Terrace will remind you of walking through a gallery of Shaoxing's history and landscape paintings.
