The Han Dynasty Cities of Chun’an and Sui’an

Qingdao Lake is located in Chun’an County in Hangzhou and is a very popular tourist site in China. For a very long time, nobody knows that there are two underwater cities lying deep under the Qiandao Lake. The two ancient cities, called Chun’an and Sui’an, were built in A.D.208 in the Han Dynasty. The Sui’an ancient city is also known as the Lion City due that there is the Lion Mountain nearby. Sleeping quietly for more than half a century, recently, with the persistent efforts of photographers, the mystery of these thousands years old underwater ancient cities has finally been uncovered.
