Tengwang Pavilion is located in northwest Nanchang and the east coast of the Gan River. It was firstly built in the fourth year of Tang Yong Hui Emperor by Li Yuanying, the then governor of Hong Zhou and son of Tang Gao Zu Li Yuan. According to records, Li Yuanyin constructed the pavilion as another residence when being transferred to be the governor of Hong Zhou and was transferred as prefectural governor of Suzhou in the third year of Yong Hui Emperor. The title of Li Yuanying is "Tengwang," hence the name Tengwang Pavilion [1]. 20 years later, Yan Gong, the then governor of Hong Zhou, rebuilt the pavilion.
