Shigu Academy

As one of the four famous academies in North Song Dynasty (960-1127), the Shigu Academy is located on the Shigu Mountain outside the North Gate of Hengyang City. Famous scholars such as Zhu Xi and Han Yu visited the academy and lectured here. The original academy was destroyed in 1944 because of Japanese bombings. Today the Shigu Academy, the Shigu Park and some other buildings are rebuilt on the base of ruins.
