This incredible underwater city, trapped in time, is 1341 years old. Shicheng, or Lion City, is located in the Zhejiang province in eastern China. It was submerged in 1959 during the construction of the Xin’an River Hydropower Station. International archeologists vividly named the city submerged in water a “time capsule.” Since it is shielded from the erosion by wind, rain and sun, the city maintains a relatively stable condition. Stairs in ancient houses, walls and memorial arches remain the same as they were thousands of years ago.
