Lanting (Orchid Pavilion) is famous for "The Preface to the Orchid Pavilion Anthology", which was written by wang Xizhi, known as the Eastern-Jin's "calligrapher-sage", on March the third of 353 AD. The anthology has since been regarded as a treasure to be unequaled in value on the art of calligraphy. Therefore, the Orchid Pavilion has been well reputed as a sacred place of calligraphy for over 1600 years. The place nestles against green hills covered with luxuriant trees and dense bamboo groves. Around Lanting are murmuring crystal-clear streams . In the garde the five architectures-the Geese Pond Pavilion, the Wine -cup Floating Pavilion, the Lanting Tablet, the Imperial Stone Tablet Pavilion and the Right Wine-cup Floating Pavilion, the Lanting Tablet, the Imperial Stone Tablet Pavilion and the Right Wing Army General Temple are fine works of art.
