Stone City Site: Stone City, commonly known as Ghost Face City, is located in the west of the Qingliang Gate of the Ming City Wall. It was first built in the seventh year of King Chuwei (333 years ago). Sun Quan moved his capital to Mausoleum (now Nanjing). He built a city at the original site of Jinlingyi in Stone Hill, named Stone, and kept the danger of the Yangtze River. It is known as the Tiger Town of Stone City. Zhu Yuanzhang, the Taizu of the Ming Dynasty, built a wall of the Ming Dynasty. Stone City has also become a part of the Ming City Wall.

Qingliang Gate: Qingjiang Gate, once named for its location in Qingliangshan Mountain, is situated east to west. It is now composed of a city gate and an oval urn city. The city is semi-circular, facing the city gate. The city building on the city gate has no longer existed. There is a hanging stone on the top of the city and two winches are chiseled.

Yijiang Gate: In 1914, a new market was opened for the prosperity of Xiaguan along the Yangtze River. In 1928, because of the construction of Zhongshan Avenue, Hailing Gate was renamed as Yijiang Gate. The next year, Dai Jitao inscribed "Yijiang Gate". The original building was destroyed by the Japanese invaders and rebuilt in 1946.
