About East Gate Tower of Xiangxi

Xiangxi Dongmen City Tower is found in the east of Fenghuang Ancient City. It was originally named "Chengheng Gate" and is one of the four principal city gates of Fenghuang Ancient City. The upper gate of the city gate is made out of old bricks and the lower part is made of purple sandstone. Xiangxi Dongmen City Tower is a commanding height on the shore of the Minjiang River. Standing here, close to the ancient market at the base of the building and the Lijiang River at the foot of the building, the slings on both sides of the river and the verdant mountains are a great place to see the panoramic view of the ancient city.

    The ancient city of Phoenix was founded in 1556 in Jiajing, Ming Dynasty. It has a history of more than 400 years. Although it has gone through vicissitudes, it is still well preserved. There are more than 120 characteristic dwellings and more than 30 temples, temples and pavilions in the ancient city of Ming and Qing Dynasties, which are the largest number of cultural relics in southwestern China. There are more than 200 ancient stone streets in the city. The ancient city of Phoenix takes Huilongge Street as its central axis, connecting numerous stone lanes and communicating with the whole city. Huilongge Ancient Street is a bluestone slab road paved vertically and horizontally, which has been a busy market since ancient times. In December 2001, the ancient city of Phoenix was approved as a national historical and cultural city. In June 2007, Phoenix Castle and Shen Congwen's former residence were listed as key cultural relics protection units in China.

    One of the nine scenic spots in Phoenix, tickets are not sold separately among the nine scenic spots. Built along the river, there is no explanation here, but the ancient city and Tuojiang River can be seen here at a glance. There are guns for defense.

    Dongmen Chenglou is magnificent, simple and generous. It is near Liujiang River and is far away from Dengtai Mountain. It can enjoy the victory of immortal games and driving cranes. It has always been a good place to imitate ancient times and enjoy Liuzhou scenery. When Liuzhou first built the brick city in the Ming Dynasty, the original city was an ellipse, which was different from the common square in the north and the strip or block planar layout in the south of the Yangtze River. The East building was on the track of the ellipse city. The existing brick wall in Dongmen City is more than 120 meters high and 6 meters thick. Today, most of the city walls, pallets and women's walls were restored in the 1990s when they were repaired.

    Located in the east of the ancient city of Phoenix, Dongmen Town Tower is facing Dongling, close to Tuojiang River, solemn and magnificent, formerly known as Shenghengmen. It is one of the four gates of the ancient city of Phoenix, and the North Gate City building not far away. Dongmen Town Tower is a commanding point on the Bank of Tuojiang River. Standing here, we can look closely at the ancient street market at the bottom of the building and the Fengtuo River at the foot of the building, the hanging tower on both sides of the river and the rolling green hills. A good place for a panoramic view of the ancient city. Under the cave of the city building, there are often vagrant singers singing here with guitars. Gradually, this scene has become a distinctive cultural and youth symbol in the ancient city, attracting young tourists from all over the country to stop.

    Although it belongs to one of the nine scenic spots, it is a ticket-free scenic spot and a good place for Wenqing to take photos. On the wall, you can see the ancient city buildings from a higher perspective, the scenery is unique, but the overall length of the wall is not long, you can walk around.

    This is a beautiful place. It's quiet without a bar street. If you have time, you can stay a few more days. There are wooden bridges, stone bridges and new cement bridges across the river. Perhaps through a wooden bridge, you can see the houses and the old man who is choosing vegetables. Smile at him, and you feel full at that moment.
