Maybe years ago, Majinpu was just a small town on your way to Fuxian Lake Scenic Spot in Chengjiang County. Today if you stop to look around in this town, you will find it an attractive land.

An ancient architectural complex can be found in an ally, in which one is likely to stand in a leisure town in South in 1949 by time travelling.

With hollow wooden windows and floors, an antic is consisting of three floors. Mounting on the second floor, one can have a panoramic view of the street. On the third floor, statues of the Buddha are enshrined. "It was called Er’men County (whose Chinese meaning is two gates.), owing to the two gates in its eastern and western areas of the town. This attic is located in the center of the town, connecting any corners in Majinpu Town," introduced a staff member in the residents’ committee.

Besides, more than 120,000 books are collected in a library here, and are open to residents.

Cuisine: Peameal, sour and hot, and a glass of wine can always satisfy guests. In addition, the mutton is another attraction for tourists in this town.
