Underwater Ancient City Reappears 2017-06-27
The Thousand-islet Lake is the largest man-made lake in eastern China and where the lake is now there used to dwell a city called Shi Cheng (Lion City). After the construction of the huge dam of Xin’an River Hydropower Station the former city was flooded and residents were evacuated. The site of the city still rests underwater and is well-preserved and referred to as Shi Cheng Underwater Ancient City.

Shi Cheng Underwater Ancient City has existed for 1339 years and was the political, financial, cultural and transportation center of Sui'an County.
On June 9 (Dragon Boat Festival), a Wen Yuan Shi Cheng (文渊狮城) themed on the culture of the century-old underwater city will be relived showing visitors through a series of activities what it was like to live in such a city.
