"Ancient Settlement"
avatar清风明月照我还"I drove from Anning and drove for nearly 4 hours, all the way to the mountain peaks, the scenery is good. When the car arrived in the ancient town, it started to rain heavily. Fortunately, we all took umbrellas and sat in the car for a while. The sky gradually brightened and the rain was lighter. We got off the car and walked towards the ancient town. Passing by a courtyard and avoiding the rain for a while, the clouds in the sky gradually dispersed, and the rain stopped. When I came to the streets of the ancient town, they were still in good condition. As soon as I entered the ancient alley, I first saw a house marked Dezhengfang. It was small, with one door, one window and one paved, which is typical The small shop looks like this is the house where the salt tax was collected in the past. The street is only a few hundred meters away, and it will be over after a short stroll. Due to traffic jams, the ancient town is well preserved and has a strong atmosphere of life. There is a large chastity archway at the entrance of the street, which is very eye-catching. It is built of red stone and two large stone lions next to it. It is very majestic. It is said that Cixi built it to commend more than 80 chastity women in the town. Then, we went back to a restaurant we just passed by for lunch. The salted chicken is the main specialty. The taste is not bad and the price is not high. Then, take a small carriage to the Heiniu Salt Well to watch the ancient salt well and exhibition. Finally, I came to visit the Wu Family Courtyard. This is a courtyard built in the Daoguang period of the Qing Dynasty. There are 99 rooms, carved beams and painted buildings, and the imperial pen plaque given by Emperor Xianfeng is hung at the door. Although the ancient town was not large, it was once a big taxpayer in Yunnan. It was recorded in the Tang Dynasty that the salt of the black well was white and delicious. It was exclusively used for the Nanshao Wangfu. In the Han Dynasty, it was excavated in large quantities and flourished in the Ming and Qing Dynasties until the liberation. For hundreds of years, black wells have supported half of the province’s economy in Yunnan."

"Ancient Settlement"
avatarCD云上"A small town, which can be visited in about half an hour, is not overly commercialized, but can still see the real state of life of the locals. The town's houses are in the form of smaller traditional, one-indian homes."

"Historical Architecture"
avatar清风明月照我还"The Wu Family Courtyard is a typical Ming and Qing architecture, which has been well preserved. The Wu Family Courtyard was built during the Qing Daoguang period. The house has 99 rooms and 108 gates. It is built in the shape of a "king" structure. In 1857, Emperor Xianfeng gave Wu Jizu Enke Jinshi, and the royal book "Painting Di Fang Hui" plaque and table. The Wu family is the richest man in the local area. Because the family moved from the south of the Yangtze River, the courtyard of the family was designed like a Jiangnan garden. The garden is not big, but it has a special flavor. There is a daughter in the Wu family. Because women can't go to the Dalong Temple to listen to the opera, a small stage is specially designed under the daughter's boudoir. The magnificent house, carved beams and painted buildings, also confirmed the prosperity of Heijing."
