Shanghai's cultural roots displayed in Sheshan

(chinadaily.com.cn) | Aug 29, 2019

Sheshan National Tourist Resort (Sheshan Resort) is playing an important role in Songjiang district's efforts to preserve Shanghai's traditional culture, local media reported on Aug 26.

As the birthplace of Shanghai's culture and history, Songjiang district is reviving its heritages with a series of relic restoration projects, as well as traditional cultural events, some of which are located in Sheshan Resort.

The 1,000 year old cultural relic Huzhu Pagoda, located halfway up Tianma Mountain, was built in 1079 during the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127).

The Buddhist tower survived a millennium of natural and human-made damages, now leaning to the southeast at an angle of 7.10 degrees.

Guangfulin Relic Park, located in the south of Sheshan Resort, showcases historic relics from the late Neolithic Age in China. The relics belong to Songze culture and Liangzhu culture, and are important representations of early urban civilization in ancient China.

Some 20 exhibitions display how people in Shanghai used to live, as well as their history and culture. Over 9,000 square meters of relics are underwater, which has become a highlight of the attraction. The parts beneath the water are historical objects not yet excavated.
