Angling Town also translated as Fishing Town, is a prominent historical relic over 1000 year old in northern Chongqing City.
In 1259 AD massive Mongolian troups under Emperor Mongu's command were pressing on Sichuan in souther China. Angling Town was the very first frontier and defence line outside Chongqing. Then a massive battle inevitably happened.
Weird thing occured, the invincible Mongolian army which appalled various enemies and conqured almost half globe was unprecedentedly stopped in this small town. On June, emperor Mongu was accidently killed by a crossbow while he was commanding his soldiers somewhere very close to the town. This battle incredibly lasted over 36 years, it slowed down and ultimately forced Mongolians to withdraw their army from Europ. That made this town called "where God broke his whip".
