Lion Town Museum

Add:Jiangjia Town, Hangzhou


Lion Town Museum’s claim to fame is its scale model of Lion Town, which was submerged underwater in 1959 when Xin'an River Reservoir was established.

The town, known as the "underwater palace," remains intact under a few meters of water.

Construction of Lion Town started in the Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 220) although most of the buildings were built in the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties.
