We walked about a km of this wall which is actually 4 kms long, 2 kms from either side of the entrance.
Pity we had not enough time, and only one or two of us could read the old writing.
Apparently the Poem Wall is an anthology of both very old and modern poems from many Chinese poets.
But the wall was not all poems; it has illustrations as well, except we could not really understand the significance.
The wall is located along a river and we were told that it was also a barricade against overflowing waters. At the entrance a steel barrier plate would rise up from the floor and align with the wall to form a perfect barrier.
It was a lovely quiet place marred, in my opinion, by cigarette smoke from locals who were relaxing there.
