On the south bank, there is the whitewashed Wall. From Song Dynasty onwards, it was covered with a large amount of engraved inscriptions, which is more than hundreds of meters wide and then meters high. The carved words Kunmen and Qutang strike the eyes most. And one of the most treasured inscriptions is Ode the resurgence of the Song. It is 4 meters High and 7 meters wide, contains 980 words the in Chinese calligraphy. The cliff is so high that we have to look up at the words. This makes us admire technology and courage of craftsmen in ancient times to gngrave words on the cliff. General Fenyuxiang's poem "go out of the Kunmen and drive the invaders out" is on the cliff. When tourists see these words, every one has feeling to protect our hometown.
The methods have been planned to protect these engraved inscriptions. All of the inscriptions are made rubbings, and copy them on the cliff with altitude of 210 meters, 700 meters on the down stream of the old site. Some rare inscriptions are incised, and preserved in the three Gorges Museum in Chongqing. Some are moved to the new site, some are protected on the old site.
Baidicheng Town is one of the famous historical sites in the Three Gorges at the entrance of Qutang Gorge. The most of it scenes are located on the top of the hill with altitude of 230 meters. After impounding, it will become islet in the center of the river.
