Longxing Ancient Town is adjacent to Liangjiang Film and Television City of Chongqing Republic Street. The old streets, wooden houses, ancestral halls and temples are paved with stone slabs in the ancient town. Ancient fragrance and antique color. New Street restaurants, accommodation, tea houses and small supermarkets are all standing in the town. Dried tofu and old bacon are the specialties of Longxing Ancient Town. They are also good casual gifts. The throughput of the parking lot in the town is very limited. It is difficult to park during the peak time of holiday tourism. It is suggested to park outside the town and walk to the town to play and eat.
Uh... Spring Festival with my mother and aunt went together, very childhood feeling, very nostalgic Haha, many more special snacks, bamboo cake, dried beans, bean flowers, throat candy, as well as shady rice spareribs, saying that shady rice eats very well, my mother also saw the roadside elderly hand-woven bamboo dustpan, which specializes in shady rice. Well, it's really interesting.
The name of "Longxing" originated from a legend - "Emperor Jianwen listened to his followers'advice after Zhu Yuanzhang passed on to the throne of Jianwen Emperor Sun Yunzhang in the Ming Dynasty, his fourth uncle, Emperor Zhu Bing, was named Emperor Zhu Bing, Emperor Qingjun's side, in the name of commanding the division south to break the Imperial capital, the Imperial Palace caught fire and Emperor Jianwen fled, and Emperor Zhu Bing was named Emperor Yan. On the way of Emperor Jianwen's refuge, he stayed at a small temple in Chongqing "Longxingchang" at night, got up at dawn, went to the bridge outside the field, and noticed that there were pursuers. He returned to the temple to hide and escaped from danger. Later generations named Jianwendi's small temple out of danger as Longzang Palace and Xiaoqiao as Huilongqiao "Longxingchang" and renamed it as Longxingchang . Longzang Palace He Huilongqiao still exists today. Longxing Ancient Town is simple and quiet, without the noise of other ancient towns. It maintains its primitive features and emits a strong breath of life. The old streets, wind and rain corridors, temples, ancestral halls and exquisite ancient houses and large houses with Bayu characteristics are well preserved, which highlights the prosperity of the ancient town in the past. Looking for roots and asking for ancestors, you can go to Huaxia ancestral temple, Bao ancestral temple and Ming ancestral temple. The ancestral temple of China introduced the origin and allusions of 176 surnames, and listed their ancestral statues, genealogy, genealogy and so on. Ancient residential buildings, we must not miss "the first floor", Liu's courtyard, its simple and elegant architecture, beautiful courtyard layout, many TV plays in "the first floor" shooting. There are also Longxing Temple (Buddhism), Longzang Palace (Taoism) and Christian Church in the ancient town. Tickets are 5 yuan or 2 yuan. Longxing Ancient Town is not far from "Liangjiang Film and Television City" or "Republican Street". It is about 10 minutes'drive and 20 yuan ticket.
Ancient town is only a part of the city, not many people, are local residents, may not be well known, so less tourists, not many people, but it is still worth visiting, pure old house, not too much decoration, you can experience the local culture carefully! Local mahjong is very popular, playing mahjong everywhere, very spectacular, it is also a kind of culture!
Longxing Ancient Town is located in the outskirts of Chongqing's main urban area. I found it by chance and was immediately attracted by the atmosphere of this ancient town. In the following six months, I went here three times, because there were the old Chongqing style and charm I wanted (pictured here is the elderly enjoying leisure time in front of their own doors).
Near the Republican Street is the famous ancient town of Longxing. There are many images related to the "dragon" in the ancient town, such as the Dragon-Tibet Temple, the Dragon-Tibet Palace and the Royal Riverside, which all seem to be metaphorically related to the Royal family. According to "Jiangbei County Chronicle", Zhu Yuanzhang, the emperor of the Ming Dynasty, succeeded his eldest grandson to the throne after the death of the prince. Listening to the minister's decrees and cutting down the policy led to the mutiny. (In other words, the first time I learned about this period of history was to watch the popular TV drama "love through time and space") Emperor Jianwen disguised himself as a monk and fled to the adjacent waters of Taihong River (now the imperial river) via Sichuan Province. He stayed at Longxing Town at night. He got up at dawn and went to the bridge outside the town. When he found a pursuer, he returned to the Longzang Palace and hid in the stone cave under the shrine, where he pursued the soldiers to see the runken and dusty of the temple. For no one, Emperor Jianwen fled.
It takes less than an hour to drive along the highway from the main city. The historic sites of the ancient city are still very good, that is, some places are not well protected. There are a lot of people sitting around drinking and playing cards in the old town on weekends, and the business atmosphere is not strong enough. It's good.
Preserved the old city should look like, antique, spent 5 yuan into an ancient house, very beautiful.
The ancient town is relatively small and not very attractive. It is near the main city and the Republic Street.
