The Zhouqiao Old Street Scenic Area in Jiading district, Shanghai, an integration of tranquil lifestyle and elegant Jiangnan (a region south of the Yangtze River) architectures, is usually referred by locals as a pagoda, two rivers, three streets, and four bridges.

The pagoda refers to Fahua Pagoda, also called Jinsha Pagoda, a 40-meter-tall and seven-storied brick-wood building erected during the reign of Emperor Kaixi of the Southern Song Dynasty (1205-1207).

With the Fahua Pagoda standing at the heart of the scenic area, three streets – the South Street, North Street and Middle Street – radiate to three directions and connect the four bridges of Denglong, Defu, Baoqing and Jichuan. The two rivers, namely Lianqi and Hengli, are crisscrossing and have cultivated generations of Jiading residents.
