Aerial video on Thursday shows 700-year-old Guanyin (Goddess of Mercy) Pavilion standing in Yangtze River.
Located in the middle of the Xiaodongmen section of Yangtze River outside the city of Ezhou, Hubei Province, the Guanyin Pavilion has survived the floods along the river.
Described as "the first pavilion on Yangtze River," the ancient Guanyin Pavilion dates back to the Song Dynasty in the 13th century. Many were surprised to see it standing tall in the middle of the overflowing river even after more than 700 years.
In May 2006, Guanyin Pavilion was listed in national key protected cultural relic units.
