School of Lake Ci

The school is located to the north of Lake Ci. According to the county records, after Yang Jian died, his followers built an ancestral hall on the south bank of Lake Ci to commemorate him. During the reign of Xianchun in the Southern Song Dynasty (1265~1274 A.D.), military commander Liu Wenzhong remodeled it into a school, i.e. School of Lake Ci. In the Yuan Dynasty, it was relocated to the north of the lake, adjoining Puji Temple, which is also the present location of Cihu Middle School. Through ups and downs, the school was abandoned in the 35th year of Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty (1770A.D.). Nothing was left afterwards except for some ancient maidenhair trees.
