The Green Lake Park which is founded in the 7th century under the Qing dynasty, is located in the heart of Kunming. In the early morning The Green Lake Park is animated with the practices of Tai-Chi, Qigong, dances and sword-play, Mahjong and cards, and also other players of erhu fiddle, a Chinese violin with two chords.
