A Trip to Purple Mountain

One of the many animal statues on Purple Mountain.

Purple Mountain carries the history of Nanjing, China, and it is also growing along with the growth of my hometown. Legend has it that its name is due to purple clouds spotted above the mountain. I have never actually seen a purple cloud, but maybe the air quality is not as good as a thousand years ago. Enjoy this brief video on my visit to Purple Mountain, and learn more about why it’s such a special place for Nanjing residents.
