Brief of Chuyang Platform

Chuyang Platform, located in the top of Geling Hill, is said to have been built by Gehong, the famous Taoist, chemist and physician in Eastern Jin Dynasty, for alchemy. Then many legends and stories came into being. It was also listed in the top ten scenic spots of Qiantan in Yuan Dynasty for its best location for appreciating the sunrise. And that is the origin of the name. It is said every October 8th in the Chinese lunar year is the best time for the sunrise. According to the records, on the special day, close to sunrise, the birds gathered and flew out of the mountain, and a beam of twilight shone with a shadow in the distance. It is said to be the wonderful view of the existence of sun and moon. There is an ancient-style pavilion standing on the platform. It is a special setting for a rest and to see the panorama of northern Hangzhou City.
