Ruzi Pavilion

The Ruzi Pavilion lies in the center of West Lake. In the Southern Tang Dynasty, Ruzi terrace was built .In early Ming Dynasty, Mayor Xu Fang set up "a Hermit Temple”. Later on, Xu Zhang built a pavilion north to the temple in memory of his ancestor, Xu Ruzi. The terrace was thrown away into the river during anti-Japanese War. The Pavilion was broken, and only the structure remained.

In 1980, rennovation project was carried out in West Lake, the pavilion was rebuilt. In 1983, the reconstruction was completed. Clear water pass gently by the pavilion, hills and stones pile up around the trees, and willow trees are densely planted around bank, just like green curtain. The park came alive again. Thus, the Willows around the Pavilion, One of Top Ten Yuzhang Sceneries was restored.

Ruzi Pavilion was built in memory of Xu Ruzi (97-168), a Nanchang native, was the Nanzhou hermit in the East Han dynasty. The pavilion underwent repairs and reconstructions in several dynasties. It was named after Pinjun Pavilion and Sixian Pavilion once. But finally the name of Ruzi Pavilion has been adopted.

In 1979,Ruzi Park was set up featuring the pavilion itself and the lake around it. In 1984, the park is open to the public. Some major historic relics such as Ruzi Pavilion, Ruzi Tomb and Stone Tablets Corridor have been rebuilt. New sites for sightseeing and relaxation have been added, for example, Fish Corridor, Lotus Pavilion, tea house, bird market and amusement park etc. Sitting in the Ruzi Pavilion, the visitors can get a panoramic view of all gorgeous scenery of the Lake.
