THE TEMPLE OF GENERAL WU
An ancient temple, the Temple of General Wu, used to sit to the north of Wuzhen Theatre, along the west side of the river. An ancient ginkgo tree grew in the temple, and today, while the temple is already gone, the tree survives. The ginko is large and tall and it takes three people standing hand-in-hand to encircle it. While old, it is still vigorous and can be seen from several miles away. There is even an ancient poem praising this tree and its lasting vitality.
