Reading and translation of inscription,
獅嶺雄觀  - Great View of Shiling -
(Lion Ridge, nowadays a part of Guangzhou City)


Lies 20 miles West from the prefectural seat on an altitude of 36 zhangs (cca 120 m) with the circumference of 5 miles.
Because of the lion shaped ridge the city got this name.
In the South there is a Chan temple called Zizhu
(Black Bamboo Forest)
Benighted monks went to Nanking and invited the county prefect Chen Kaiyu for constructions to get built a pavilion with a tower, as the stone tablet carvings

There is no indication of artist and date.
According to the encyclopedia Shiling was founded in the Qing dynasty during the reign of Qianlong Emperor (1736-95). Thus the picture could be from
the middle of XIX.C.

With regards,
