Hidden attractions in Fujian: Tianluokeng Tulou Group.
mentioned Fujian, the first time everyone thinks about it is the photo of Gulangyu. The small island is sunny, warm and humid, and is very popular with tourists.
In addition to enjoying a slow life in Gulangyu, Fujian has a small attraction not to be missed. It is the earth building of Zhangzhou. Before the fire of the anime "Big Fish Sea Bream", few tourists visited.
Tulou is a building constructed of earthen walls, which are round, semi-circular, square, etc. The earth building was initially square, and considering the ventilation and lighting, it evolved into a round shape with the final rain and dew. Generally for a large family to live, the building can store food, raise livestock and even have necessary facilities such as water wells. This kind of design considers the home while taking into account the defense. The earth building is like a sturdy big fortress. If you encounter an enemy attack, you only need to close the gate. The guards will be guarded by several young and old people.
Cangzhou's rich bamboo shoots, fresh bamboo shoots taste smooth and juicy, is a must-have farmer's dish. After the spring rain, the bamboo shoots yield is particularly good, and the bamboo shoots are dried, which not only locks the original flavor of the bamboo shoots, but also facilitates storage and transportation.
I deliberately experienced a night of earth building life. The room is the oldest window, the original civil structure, the sound insulation is not good, the ear of the early morning is filled with the voices of various neighborhoods and cockpits, but this is the original country life. In the dead of night, about three or five friends are talking on the candlelight night, quite charming.
I believe that people who have traveled to southern Fujian in the southeastern coastal areas know the Tulou buildings in Fujian. The earth building here seems to be very ordinary, but it is very secret in the world of architectural art and magical science. The most magical place in Fujian earth building is that only people living in the earth building will not be damaged if they are in the wind and rain. It has collapsed, and there has never been a collapse of the inhabited earth building for hundreds of years, but as long as no one lives in the earth building, time will soon collapse for no reason. As early as the Tang Dynasty, the Hakkas invented the use of mud to build houses based on the combination of Feng Shui and architecture theory of the motherland, and those living in houses will not be worried about the damage of houses. The most magical place in Fujian Tulou is that only if someone lives in the earth building, the wind and rain will not damage or collapse. The collapse of the inhabited earth building has never happened for hundreds of years, but there is no one in the earth building. Living, time will soon collapse for no reason, is it amazing? Why is the Fujian Tulou inhabited and will never collapse? If you are uninhabited, it will collapse automatically? So with such doubts, I came to see the Tulou Scenic Spot, the most representative of the "four dishes and one soup" in the Nanjing Tulou. Above the inside of the circular earth building is a huge skylight that can store the outside light into the interior of the earth building. The circular design is very consistent with the mathematical theory of our country. I think this design definitely uses a certain theory of mathematics. Because the Tulou building in Fujian will collapse when it is unoccupied, and the earth buildings here are hundreds of years old, it is a cultural relic house. Therefore, in order to avoid the collapse of the precious earth building, the local government funds to attract the elderly to stay here. People who live mainly here will enjoy the government's welfare subsidies. There are such good things in the world. I think everyone will be envious. Why is there such a magical imagination in Fujian Tulou? The inhabited earth building is safe for hundreds of years, and the uninhabited earth building will soon collapse. So far, no scientist has been able to trace the answer. It seems that the wisdom of the ancient Chinese people is unpredictable and can only be summed up by the word "magic". In the traditional Chinese concept, the prosperity of the family is a blessing, and the Fujian Tulou is the guardian of the house for the family who is thriving. Is it a blessing guardian of China since ancient times? In order to avoid the sadness of people going to the empty space, the earth building will also die and live with the popularity of living in the earth building. So it seems that the Fujian earth building is not only the most amazing building in the world, but also the most knowledgeable building. Nanjing Tulou belongs to the township in the county of Nanjing, Cangzhou City. From Xiamen, you can take the bus directly to the scenic spot or take the high-speed train to Nanjing Station to transfer to the scenic area. The ticket is 120 yuan, and the online reservation is 90 yuan.

Most of the people living here are Hakkas, Hakkas have experienced long-distance migration, The earth is built with walls, and it is suitable for the outer shackles. Such a residential building full of Datong ideals, in addition to ethnic consciousness, a strong sense of humanity has also been gathered.
Tulou is based on raw soil as the main building material, mixed with fine sand, lime, glutinous rice, Brown sugar, bamboo chips, wooden strips, etc., are built after repeated twisting, smashing and pressing. The top of the building is covered with fire and tile cover, and it will not be damaged for a long time. The earth building can be up to four or five stories high for three or four generations to live in the same building. . I especially like the red lanterns here, and the days of people here must have been very popular.
The outside of the earth building is the world and the unknown, while the inside is the life and warmth. This kind of earthen building is round and round, and the atmosphere of the neighborhood is unique to us. Here you can see the simple folk customs, the people full of life are full of love for life, and infected with all kinds of tourists.
people here, living here, clothing, food and religion, we can see them most Real life scenarios. Visitors seem to be part of their lives. People coming and going are not enough to disturb their lives. Instead, they will be very enthusiastic to talk to people who come and go.
A young and old is screaming at the rice cake, which is a mobilization of the whole family.
The Tianluokeng Tulou Cluster is one of Fujian's landmarks. Its unique pattern (3 round earth buildings surrounding one oval shaped building) has earned the nickname "four dishes and one soup". These earth buildings are shaped like beautiful plum blossoms. As you move down the mountain path, the changing viewing angle seems to make the earthen buildings magically change shape as well. The round and square buildings appear and reappar as you follow the path. When you get to the bottom of the road, lift your head and look up. The tall towers look splendid in the sunshine. It's a great place to take pictures.
