Donglin Academy - A Famous School in Chinese History

The Donglin Academy (盲赂艙忙啪鈥斆ぢ孤γ┾劉垄 - literally meaning "Eastern Grove Academy"), also known as the Guishan Academy (茅戮鸥氓卤卤盲鹿娄茅鈩⒙?, was originally built in A.D. 1111 during the Northern Song dynasty at present-day Wuxi in China. It was originally a school where the neo-Confucian scholar Yang Shi taught, but later fell into disuse.

In 1604, during the Wanli era, Gu Xiancheng, a Ming Grand Secretary, along with Gao Panlong, a scholar, restored the Donglin Academy on the same site with the financial backing of local gentry and officials. The academy gave its name to the resulting Donglin movement.

The Donglin Academy can be found at 867, Jiefang Donglu, Wuxi City.
