Bai Causeway

Bai Causeway

21 July 2009

The Bai Causeway is one of several causeways that divide the West Lake into a number of smaller lakes. It is the most ancient of the causeways and was built for Tang Dynasty poet Bai Juyi, who was governor of Hangzhou from 822 to 24. The causeway is a kilometre in length and separates the main part of the lake from the smaller Beili Lake. It is interrupted by two bridges, one in the middle shown above, and the famous Broken Bridge at the eastern end. This is a view of the causeway from Baoshi Hill.
