Zhujiajiao presents a charming face: willow-lined canals; traditional residences with whitewashed walls, grey slate roofs and classical garden courtyards; calm temples; crooked cobbled lanes and ancient stone bridges spanning waterways plied by flat-bottomed boats.
The town, which was founded over 1,700 years ago, occupies land that archaeological records show has known human settlement for over 5,000 years. It became a regional commercial center during the Song (960-1279) and Yuan (1271-1368) dynasties and, as Shanghai grew in later years, was eventually absorbed into the metropolis' expanding suburbs.
