Shi Cheng – Chinas versunkene Löwenstadt

Es war im Jahr 2001, als Taucher im Qiandao-See etwa 30 Meter unter der Oberfläche auf etwas stießen, das ihnen den Atem stocken ließ: Kunstvoll verzierte Häuser, Stadttore und Mauern erhoben sich auf dem Seegrund, verteilt über ein riesiges Areal.

The Lion City, otherwise known as Shi Cheng, is an ancient submerged city that lies at the foot of Wu Shi Mountain (Five Lion Mountain), located beneath the spectacular Qiandao Lake (Thousand Island Lake) in China. Officials have taken a renewed interest in the sunken city since discovering in February this year, that despite more than 50 years underwater, the entire city has been preserved completely intact, transforming it into a virtual time capsule.
