阖闾当了吴王,心情很好。
他下决心要使吴国变得强大,于是开始实行改革,任用有能力的人当官,努力发展生产,同时关心老百姓的生活,给老百姓更多的好处。他自己带头,生活上节约,不贪图享受。
他的这些做法受到老百姓的欢迎,吴国的情况比以前好多了。
吴王阖闾立志要使吴国更加强大,向外发展,消灭楚国,到中原去称霸。
伍子胥现在成了他最重要的大臣。有一天,他对伍子胥说:“吴国要强大,应该怎么做?”
伍子胥说:“大王,吴国的国都太小,连城墙都没有。万一打起仗来,都没有办法守城。我们应该建一个很坚固、很气派的新国都。”
“你说得对。”吴王阖闾说,“这事儿就交给你吧。”
于是,伍子胥从中原各国请来了建筑师,设计了新的都城。
第二年,在梅里的南面,一座新都城建起来了,外城周长47里,内城周长10里。有高高的城墙,有王宫,有仓库。有陆门8座,还有水门8座,新国都比原来的国都梅里大很多,也漂亮很多,可以说赶上了当时的先进水平。
