An overview of farmlands in the shape of an octagon in the city of Hangzhou, East China's Zhejiang Province, August 12, 2007. The design is a symbol of Taoism, and the field was first built in the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279AD) for emperors to work and show their recognition to the importance of agriculture.
