Se Park is the memorial garden of Zhang Jian, the Number One Scholar of the Imperial Exam in the late Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911) and a modern national industrialist and educator. It is a national key cultural relic protection unit and the largest ornamental garden in Nantong. An ancient tree towers in the elegant garden.
It was said that Junshan Mountain was where the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC) stationed his troops, so it is also named the Military Mountain. The Putuo courtyard on the mountain is home to the world's largest jade Avalokitesvara statue, an object of worship.
Jianshan Mountain has blade-like ridges, and so looks like a horizontal sword; it is also called the Sword Mountain. The Wenshu temple on the mountain worships Manjusri bodhisattva.
The exquisite combination of natural landscape and human resources makes Langshan Mountain scenic spot a bright pearl on the Jianghai plain.
