Tiger Hill

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.
Tiger Hill is Suzhou’s most picturesque spot. The hill in the northwest of the city is the resting place of King Helu who was the founding father of Suzhou who died in the 6th century BC. His tomb on the peak was apparently guarded by a white tiger which explains the name of the hill. Also on the summit is a leaning octagonal 48 meter pagoda formerly built in 961AD.
A lot of the sites are linked with Helu and the legends of Tiger Hill. There is the housand Men Rock where apparently the men who built the tomb were killed to preserve the secrets of the grave. The word Pond is also said to cover the King treasures which include 3,000 swords. Also there is the word Testing Rock which King Helu supposedly split while testing a new sword.
Tiger Hill is definitely 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 unforgettable memory and justify the proud cultural tradition of China.
