Background
Pavilions are often built in gardens or by roadsides for passengers to have a rest or appreciate the surrounding scenery. According to historical records, pavilions were first built in China over a thousand years ago. Those famous ones with long history and graceful structure embody rich cultural content and are appreciated for their poetic beauty. In the stamp pictures, the Aiwan (in Chinese means loving evening) Pavilion in Changsha is named after the verse of "I stop the carriage, loving the maple wood in the evening" by Du Mu; the Pipa Pavilion in Jiujiang first built in the Tang Dynasty was so named to commemorate the "Balled of the Pipa" written by Bai Juyi there; the Orchid Pavilion where the great calligrapher Wang Xizhi wrote the famous "Preface to the Orchid Pavilion Collection" in Shaoxing; the Pavilion of Old Drunkard in Chuzhou was named by Ouyang Xiu, a writer of the Northern Song Dynasty, who wrote the celebrated "The Roadside Hut of the Old Drunkard".
