Introducing Nanchang Tengwang Pavilion, Nanchang Tengwang Pavilion Travel Guide
Article edited by Cathy

The Pavilion of Prince Teng or Tengwang Pavilion is a building in the north west of the city of Nanchang, in Jiangxi province, China, on the east bank of the Gan River and is one of the Three Great Towers of southern China. The other two are the Yueyang Tower and the Yellow Crane Pavilion.

Tengwang Pavilion has been destroyed and rebuilt many times over its history. The present building was rebuilt in 1989 on the original site. The rebuilding plan was devised by the famous architect Liang Sicheng,and now the Pavilion of Prince Teng is the landmark of Nanchang. There are nine floors in total. The main architectural structure is in Song dynasty wooden style, showing the magnificence of the Pavilion.

The Pavilion of Prince Teng achieved national fame through the Preface to the Pavilion of Prince Teng. As a result, Tengwang Pavilion was endowed by later generations with almost legendary status as an example of magnificent architecture. When the Forbidden City was built, its corner towers were built to imitate the Pavilion of Prince Teng and the Yellow Crane Pavilion as depicted in Song Dynasty paintings. These uniquely structured corner towers remain some of the most valued architectural treasures of the Forbidden City. The Tengwang Pavilion was regarded as the holy land in several dynasties in the history of China. In the mean time, Tengwang Pavilion is the ancient library as well, storing a large number of precious scriptures and poems.
