Covering an area of 10.42 hectares, Ling Isle took shape at the latest time among the five isles on Xuanwu Lake. Located in the southeast of the scenic area of Xuanwu Lake, it is adjacent to the Purple Mountain to its east. From here, one can appreciate rosy clouds of various shapes on the mountain. Since ancient times, Ling Isle has been reputed as “An isle opposite to a beautiful cloud-covered mountain”. Ling Isle is thus named because it teemed with water chestnuts in old days and it is shaped like a water chestnut.
