Thank you TooMuchBaiju,

Checking the map I think that is Hezhongsi, because Zhongshan was in the west of Zhao. But in my map (that it was in the wikipedia article the last week but they had change it), it said that it was conquered in 330. Anyway it is good to know it.

Thanks again

Hmm, I guess this is a good thread for it :)

Here's a picture I took of a place which commemorated Wu Zixu in Suzhou:

He's one of the better Prime Ministers and strategists of the late Spring and Autumn period for the State of Wu. I think he contributed to the Art of War.

Fan Li was smart enough to turn him against King Fuchai though.

That's a nice-looking building. When was it built?
I don't write fanfic, but if I did it would involve Zhou Yu and Zheng He fighting to win the heart of Lai Choi San. Then I'd make them join forces to fight Ming the Merciless, who secretly works for Master Li. I'd squeeze Lu Bu in there somehow.

Honestly, not a clue but not built back in the S&A period. The wood would have rotted out by now if it was. Pan Gate, the gate to Suzhou (which could be found in some photographs in the arts section that I posted), is I think built during the period of King Helu of Wu (Fuchai's father)

It's pretty awesome since there's Wu flags flying around Suzhou as it was the old capital of the State of Wu.
