What people are saying:

Gejing Bridge is located in the southeastern suburb of Fuquan City. It is a Ming Dynasty stone bridge on the ancient post road across the Maha River in Beijing and Yunnan. Built in 1618, it was listed as a national key cultural relics protection unit. This bridge was built by Ge Jing, a local tycoon in the Ming Dynasty. In order to solve the problem of the post road being blocked by the river, he paid his own money. It took 30 years and suffered two failures before it was built. The locals call it "tofu bridge" for two reasons. One said that the bridge was built of square stones and looked like pieces of tofu; the other said that the bridge was short of stones when it was built, and Zhang Sanfeng asked the villagers to send pieces of tofu. , Zhang Sanfeng ordered tofu into stone. Obviously the first statement is more reliable. It was not easy to build such an ingeniously designed and majestic bridge with the help of the people. The famous bridge expert Mr. Mao Yisheng evaluated this bridge in the book: the project is arduous, majestic, and "the crown of southwest bridges". Ge Jingqiao has a history and a story, but it is “hidden in a deep boudoir without knowing it”, and it is completely primitive at present. Not developed into a scenic spot, not many people know about it, and even fewer people have been there. Gejing Bridge is only 3.5 kilometers away from the ancient city tourist service center near the south gate of Fuquan City, and it is a 45-minute walk away. If you drive there, there is a small parking lot by the river. After parking, you can go directly down to the bridge along the stone steps. This is not a scenic spot, there seems to be no health service staff, visitors should not leave garbage.
