What people are saying:

Deng Xiaoping's father, Deng Shaochang, taught here after returning to his hometown after graduating from Chengdu Law and Political School. Following his father's wishes, Deng Xiaoping transferred from the Hanlin Yard Private School to Beishan Elementary School to receive a modern education. Today, the site of Beishan Elementary School is located on the old street in the government courtyard of Xiexing Town. The old houses with wooden structures and mottled walls show its vicissitudes of history. Looking at it, people seemed to see Xiaoping in his childhood carrying the homespun schoolbag that his mother sewed for him every day, walking on the uneven street, and coming to school eagerly to absorb the nutrients of knowledge; they also seemed to hear The gentle footsteps of a great man from here to the world in his childhood

Additional Information

Introduction

The Foshou (Buddha's hand) Mountain Scenic Area is located in Guoshan Village, Xiexing Town, southwest of the Former Residence of Deng Xiaoping. It was named after the "Buddha's hand" for the large stone formation in the middle of the mountain shaped in the likeness of the Buddha's palm. At the foot of the mountain lies the Wei River which leads out towards the Qu River. At the half peak of Foshou Mountain lies the burial site for the ancestors of Deng Xiaoping's family. A new school, Beishan Elementary School, was opened in Xiexing Ancient Town, Guang'an County, while the former site of Beishan Elementary School is located inside the government building of Xiexing Town facing the old street. The wooden structures of the old residences and mottled walls exude a sense of the vicissitudes of history.
