The Solitary Beauty Peak is known as the “Great Southern Pillar” as well as the No.1 peak in Guilin. The inscription on the peak that declares the rivers and mountains of Guilin as the best under heaven is particularly well known. The Jingjiang Prince's Mansion was built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) when Zhu Shouqian, the grandnephew of Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang, was enthroned as Prince of Jingjiang. With the natural landscape and historical and cultural landscape adding radiance and beauty to each other, it has been renowned as “the city in the city” since ancient times.
