Destination of Yangtze Cruises from Chongqing – Fengdu

Fengdu earned its moniker "Ghost City" for the demon-decorated temples, buildings and statues in the town. Fengdu received its reputation as the "Ghost City" in the Eastern Han Dynasty. Two officials from the imperial court – Wang Fangping and Ying Changsheng were bored with political life in the court and came to Mingshan Hill outside Fengdu city to practice Taoist teachings. Both of them later became immortals by carrying out self-cultivation. The temples built on Mingshan Hill display punishing instruments and wild demon images, which vividly depict the Chinese people's imagination of Hell. On the south bank of the Yangtze River, opposite to Mingshan Hill, a new town has been established. This modern relocation village has been built for families who have moved as a result of the Yangtze River's rising water brought about by the Three Gorges Dam.
