Tengwang Pavilion, one of the three famous buildings in the south of the Yangtze River, is located on the East Bank of Ganjiang River along the Yangtze River Road in the northwest of Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province. It was built in Yonghui, Tang Dynasty (653 A.D.). It was named after Li Yuanying, the brother of Li Shimin, Taizong of Tang Dynasty. It was also named after Wang Bo, the poet of the early Tang Dynasty, who wrote the poem "falling clouds and flying solitary birds, and autumn water are all in one colour." Leave a good name for a hundred generations.
In the thirteenth year of Tang Zhenguan (639 A.D.), Li Yuanying, the 22nd son of Tang Gaozu Li Yuan and the brother of Tang Taizong Li Shimin, was sealed up in Tengzhou, Shandong Province as King Teng. He built an attic in Tengzhou called "Tengwang Pavilion" (which has been destroyed). In the fourth year of Tang Xianqing (659 A.D.), Teng Wang, Li Yuanying, was transferred to the governor of Hongzhou in the south of the Yangtze River (now Southwest Changjiang). Because of his yearning for Tengzhou, he built the famous Tengwang Pavilion. Tengwang Pavilion has become an eternal classic because of Wang Bo's Preface to Tengwang Pavilion.
Tengwang Pavilion, together with Huanghe Tower in Wuhan, Hubei Province and Yueyang Tower in Hunan Province, is called "Three Famous Buildings in the South of the Yangtze River". Historically, the Tengwang Pavilion has been rebuilt 29 times, repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt.
On October 29, 2018, Tengwang Pavilion Tourist Area in Nanchang was approved by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism as a national AAAAA-level tourist attraction.

"Painting and calligraphy, wonderful melody, butterfly-like, Fangzhu Tour, flying the green sparrow, singing and dancing in the pavilion." (Ming Chen Wencang's Renovation of Tengwang Pavilion)
According to historical records, Li Yuanying was named Tengzhou in Shandong Province during Zhenguan years, so he was Tengwang and built an attic named Tengwang Pavilion in Tengzhou.

In ancient times, Tengwang Pavilion was regarded as a auspicious geomancy building. The ancient folk saying goes, "Cut off the rattan and gourd, Yuzhang residue in the tower basement". "Teng" refers to Tengwang Pavilion; "gourd" is a treasure; "tower" refers to the golden tower of rope; "dike" means collapse; "Yuzhang" means Nanchang. The meaning of this ancient ballad is that if Tengwang Pavilion and Rope Golden Pagoda collapse, the talents and treasures in Yuzhang City will be lost, and the city will also fall, and no longer prosperous.
In the ancient customs of our country, the place where people live together needs geomantic architecture, which is generally the highest landmark building in the area. It gathers the spirit of heaven and earth and absorbs the essence of the sun and the moon. It is commonly known as "Wenbifeng". Tengwang Pavilion is situated on the Bank of Ganshui River. It was praised as a "fountain pen" by the ancients. The ancients said, "Wanshou Palace is for money and Tengwang Pavilion is for fortune". It can be seen that Tengwang Pavilion occupies a sacred position in the minds of the world, which has been highly valued and protected in all dynasties.
At the same time, Tengwang Pavilion is also the place where ancient classics and books are stored. In a sense, it is an ancient library. The feudal scholar-bureaucrats welcomed and invited guests to dinner here. Zhu Yuanzhang, the founding emperor of the Ming Dynasty, who was the emperor of the emperor of Heaven, once set up a banquet pavilion after winning the battle of Poyang Lake over Chen Youliang. He ordered ministers and scholars to write poems and watch the lights.
