Although it has been turned into a post road for a short time, its traffic effect is continuous. During the Qin and Han dynasties, the transportation of materials from Sichuan and Hanzhong to Xianyang or Chang'an in Kyoto was mostly taken on Bao Chuan and old roads instead of Ziwu Road. After Liu Bang, the emperor of the Han Dynasty, went to Hanzhong and sent Zhang Liang to burn the Ziwu plank road, by the fifth year of Emperor Ping, Wang Mang ordered the construction of the Ziwu road and set up the Ziwu Pass. Since then, the Meridian Road has often been used by regimes based in Guanzhong as a channel to attack Hanzhong, Ankang, Sichuan and Hubei.
Ziwu Road, also known as Ziwu Plank Road. It was an important passage from the capital of Chang'an to Hanzhong, Bashu and other places in the south in ancient China, especially during the Han and Tang dynasties. It is named because it crosses the Ziwu Valley and starts from the south of Chang'an. There have been repairs and line changes throughout the ages. During the Eastern Han and Tang dynasties, they were once national post roads.
The Meridian Road passes through the Qinba Mountains and is one of the most important passages from central Sichuan to the pass. After the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the Xi (An) Wan (Yuan) Highway was built on the basis of the Ziwu Ancient Road and it is still used as part of the 210 National Highway. Departing from Wanyuan, Sichuan, passing through the town of Banchao, Shiquan, the hometown of Guiguzi, and Ningshan in the depths of the Qinling Mountains, finally arrived at the prosperous Chang'an.
The Shuhan entered one of the ancient roads in Shaanxi, but unfortunately it failed to achieve the Shuhan attack on the Wei.
Climbing up and looking at Wuzi Mountain, stepping up to the horizon, no one knows the aura above, and when you are in haze, you are immortal.
