Zhu Jiajiao Ancient Town

Zhujiajiao is located in the southwest part of Qingpu District, Shanghai, known as a "Pearl of the south of the Yangtze River" embedded beside Dianshan Lake.

The core area of the ancient town is 3.08 square kilometers. During the song and Yuan Dynasties, people started country fairs in this area. Later a town was officially established during Wanli period of the Ming Dynasty. From the late Qing Dynasty to the Republic of China Period, it had become a famous commercial town.

The water network and streets in the town are well preserved, presenting the ancient and simple lifestyle of "small bridges, flowing water and old houses". The remaining ancient buildings and houses include Kezhi Garden, City God Temple, Yuanjin Buddhist Temple, Fangsheng Bridge, and Post Office of Qing Dynasty.

In 2007, it was selected into the third batch of famous Chinese historical and cultural towns. Today, Zhujiajiao is rejuvenated and has become a unique scenic spot for tourism in Shanghai.
