A nearby plaque reads: “The Pavilion is a gift of Jiangsu Provincial Government and is called the ‘Pavilion of Friendship’.”
A nearby plaque reads: “In ancient Chinese Forts, Corner Tower provided the highest watching platform for protection of the city.”
I went there yesterday end of afternoon, the place was packed with tourists (it’s the national holiday now in China), I’ve never seen that many people here during my previous visits. I had to wait until they almost closed the park to get this shot without the stairs being submerged with people… And even then I stayed still for about 20 minutes just waiting for the moment. I still had to clone-stamp out a few tourists on the top platform…
It is a truly beautiful place, I hope my photograph gives it justice.
