Yuèxiù Park information
A statue of the symbol of Guǎngzhōu – the Five Rams (五羊) that supposedly carried the five immortals who founded the city – stands guard at this park. On a hilltop is red-walled Zhènhǎi Tower (镇海楼; Zhènhǎi Lóu), built in 1380 as a watchtower to keep out pirates. The tower is home to the excellent Guǎngzhōu City Museum , which traces the city’s history from the neolithic period. To the east is Guǎngzhōu Art Gallery , which has displays on the city's trading history with the West.
