Jin Shan, Jiao Shan and Bei-Gu Shan which are known as ‘Three Mountains”, are included into the list of the eighteen tourist attractions together with Zhenjiang museum and Xijin historical and cultural blocks. Jin Shan was widely praised by poets for its natural forest view and was known for the romantic love story “Tale of White Snake” behind. In the “Tale of White Snake”, the beautiful lady, who actually was a white snake, fell in love with a young man and got married with him. It was a betrayal to mortal world.
