Solitary Peak

solitary-peak01Solitary Peak, also named Duxiu Peak, stands in solitary grace in the center of the ancient Jingjiang Princely Mansion. It towers abruptly from the ground with an elevation of 216 meters.

solitary-peakThis is a majestic, solitary peak, steep and precipitous, rising at the very centre of the city. It has been called the "Pillar of the Southern Sky." In the haze of dawn or the glow of sunset the peak is purple or gold. A climb up the 306 stone steps to the top is rewarded by a panoramic view of the city. The nephew of a Ming Emperor built a palace at the foot of the peak in the 14th century. Today, only the gate remains.

At the foot of the peak are Dushu (Study) Rock, Taiping (Peace) Rock and Yueya (Crescent) Pond. On the east side of the hill there are many inscriptions from the Qing dynasty, such as "Southern Sky-supporting Pillar" and "Purple Gown and Golden Belt." A flight of 396 stone steps leads from the west foot of the hill up to the top, where one has a commanding a panoramic view of the whole city and all the surrounding mountains.
