Mist and Trees in the Ancient City of Jizhou (Jizhou had been mistakenly as Jimen)
The tablet of “Mist and Trees in the Ancient City of Jizhou” stands by the Tucheng (Dirt Wall) five li (2.5km) away from Deshengmen. In ancient times, there had been the landscape “Mist and Trees”.
Since the Han Dynasty, it had been commonly accepted that the former site of Jicheng is around the present Guanganmen. “Mist and Trees in the Ancient City of Jizhou” first appeared in a poem of Li Yi, a poet during the Dali reign of the Tang Dynasty. The poem was composed when he traveled the Yan and Zhao States.
