Tianyi Ge Tower

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
The People's Republic of China comprises most of the cultural, historic, and geographic area known as China. It is the world's most populous country, with a population of over 1,300,000,000, most of whom are classified as the Han Chinese ethnicity.
Tianyi Ge Tower was built in the mid 16th century and is located in the west of Ningbo. It has a collection of more than 300,000 books and is one of the oldest private libraries in China. Also the Tianyi Ge Tower is famous for its concise design, beautiful garden and quiet environment. It has a collection of more than 80,000 rare books precious for the study of Chinese history.
In front of the two-story wooden building an artificial pond was laid, which was planned to provide water in the event of a fire. Originally the library collection consisted of 70,000 Chinese volumes and despite occasional losses it has been cared for and preserved its magnificence. At present the library possesses a collection of over 80,000 books, incunabula, old manuscripts and a big number of inscriptions in stone dating from the 14th to 19th Century.
Tianyi Ge Tower is certainly one of the popular tourist attractions in China. It is worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place will leave a pleasing and remarkable memory and justify the proud cultural tradition of China.
