The City Wall

Jingzhou is a city that was originally designed for the military. There is a moat outside for protection and also two city gates with a large space in between, used to capture the enemy. The town is divided into three parts: Earth City, Water City and Brick City. The walls of the city were strongly made in order to protect the city. The six city gates located at various points of the wall had a tower to act as a lookout spot and each gate was used for a different purpose. While walking on the city walls, you are able to see a magnificent view of the city. Jingzhou City has a very long history and is rich in historical relics.
Many Neolithic and Paleolithic sites have been found in and around the city. The Kingdom of Chu in the Eastern Zhou Period (770 -256 BC) established its capital five kilometers (about 3.1 miles) north of the city and more than 400 years of Chu civilization had given the Jingzhou City an important place in the history of Chinese culture. Since the Qin (221 - 207 BC) and Han Dynasty (220 BC-206 DC), not a single emperor could afford to ignore its importance: thus it has always attracted enormous attention.
