For years past, natural landscapes and cultural relics have great appeal for people who are keen on returning to nature, who are longing for the spectacular mountains and rivers and who are aspire to explore the ancient culture.

Apart from the picturesque views, Three Gorges is home to the ancient China culture--Daxi Culture, which witnessed hundreds of heroes putting on their unyielding heroic shows and hundreds of poems and writers leaving their masterpieces. Quyuan Temple in Zigui City and Zhangfei Temple are built for, respectively, the memory of Quyuan, a great patriotic poet in ancient China, and Zhangfei, the famous general during the Three Kingdoms Period (181-234).
