Huanglongxi Ancient Town
Huanglongxi Ancient Town
With a history of more than 1,700 years, Huanglongxi Ancient Town can be traced back to Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - 24 AD). The core scenic area covering an area of 5 square meters (6 square yards) is famous for the ancient streets, trees, temples, embankments, dikes, residences, ports, battle fields, cliff tombs and government offices in feudal China. The existing seven ancient streets constructed in Ming and Qing Dynasties (1368 - 1911) are well-preserved. In the central street, there are three ancient temples named Gulong Temple, Zhenjiang Temple, and Chaoyin Temple. The 76 stilt residences of Ming and Qing Dynasties by the river have shown the pile-dwelling culture of ancient Shu Kingdom. In the outer area, the famous Dafo Temple and Guanyin Temple are located on the opposite mountains. The Dafo Temple is carved on the steep cliff with a height of 6.7 meters (22 feet), which is renowned as the small Leshan Giant Buddha. If you wanna buy some gift there, tea is recommended. In history, Huanglongxi Ancient Town was the hometown of Chinese tea and an important post on the ancient Tea Horse Road.
