Dongpo Pavilion is located on the campus of Hepu Normal School in Beihai City.It was built in memory of Su Dongpo, a famous poet in Song Dynasty (960-1127). Even though Su Dongpo had lived here for just a short time, he still wrote several articles and poems to describe the life of the local people and his mood at the time. The pavilion with historical relics and beautiful scenery has become a key tourist attraction in Beihai.
The pavilion is a brick and wooden structure. The name Dong Po Ting (Dongpo Pavilion) is inscribed on a wooden panel hanging on the door lintel of the building. Entering the pavilion, visitors will see Su Dongpo's stone portrait set in the front wall immediately .Each of the ten poems he created is displayed to the left of the portrait. East of the pavilion is a well in which water is crystal clear and sweet. It is said that the well was dug by Su Dongpo himself and that the water had special powers. Legend has it that people who drank from the well were able to pass government examinations.
In the east of the pavilion lies Dongpo Park. When you arrive here, you are greeted by a wonderful view of the park's surrounding lake. The surface of the lake sparkles in the sunlight and the weeping willows swing gently with the breeze.
Troubles like earthquakes and wars hailed down on Dongpo Pavilion, while it was still rebuilt and stands erect. It is really a miracle. Thus it is necessary to visit Dongpo Pavilion and taste Su Dongpo and his poems when traveling Beihai City.
