Construction the Zhenquting began in the autumn of 1916 and was finished in autumn of 1917. Built by the KMT Brigade Commander Huang Guoliang 黄國梁 after a discussion about the site of Jinci with Liu Dapeng. It was named according to Huang Guoliang's thought that Jinci was genuinely wonderful（真趣)and that the most genuine and wonderful place in the complex was the stairway to the stone tank leading from the Nanlaoquan 難老泉(Eternal Youth Spring). This structure is number 36 on our site.1
