In ancient times, whenever there were floods in Yongjiang River, water would flow back to Yongxi (Nanhu), which in turn flooded surrounding farmlands and houses. In order to improve the situation, the governor of Yongzhou(邕州) called on villagers to divert the water from Yongjiang River, and build dams, therefore Nanhu Lake took shape.
