The Bund is an area of Huangpu District in Shanghai, People's Republic of China.
The area centres on a section of Zhongshan Road (East-1 Zhongshan Road) within the former Shanghai International Settlement, which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River, facing Pudong, in the eastern part of Huangpu District.
The Bund usually refers to the buildings and wharves on this section of the road, as well as some adjacent areas.
A famous classical garden in south China, it was once famed as the ' top beauty in southeast China'. First built during the Ming Dynasty, 400 years ago, by a Sichuan minister of finance named Pan Yunduan, it has been several times renovated by the government since the Liberation and is now one of the key relic sites in the country under state protection.
The garden is divided into the scenic sections of 'Mountains and Forests in the city', 'Magnificent Woods and Beautiful Valleys', 'Historical relics of Heralding Spring, 'Water and Rockery Scenery', 'Tops in the World' and the Inner Garden. Shanghai Museum is a veritable treasure house of ancient Chinese art and houses120,000 precious relics. Bronzes, pottery, paintings and calligraphies are distinctive features of the Museum's collection.
Seen from above, the Museum resembles a large bronze mirror of the Han Dynasty (206BC -220). From the distance, it looks like a bronze Ding, an ancient cooking vessel that contains so many mementos of the 5,000-year-old history of Chinese civilization.
