      Zhuji, a county-level city in Zhejiang province with history and scenery, is known as the native home of Xishi, one of the "four beauties of ancient China". Xishi was a local girl who lived in a village surrounded by mountains and waters, under the rule of the Yue state in the late Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC).

      Xishi's beauty had been spread out by word-of-mouth that she was also referred to in literary works as chenyu (sinking fish). Xishi received her nickname from a tale; Xishi often washed yarn at a stream near her home, and her pretty reflection stunned the fish and made them sink in the depth of water.
