Linqing Canal Chaoguan was a taxation agency for canal merchant ships directly managed by the Ministry of Husbandry during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It was built during the Xuande period of the Ming Dynasty and was abolished during the Republic of China. It lasted for more than five hundred years. . It is the banknote customs with the earliest customs clearance, the latest customs clearance, the most tax collection, and the greatest contribution, which can also prove Linqing's important city status during the water transport period. Today, the building base of the Linqing Banknotes Customs Office still exists, and some of it has been rebuilt, and part of it has been exhibited. The surrounding environment is under overall planning and construction. Tickets are ten yuan. Those interested in the culture of the Grand Canal may wish to visit.
Its function is similar to that of the tax bureau, but it can be called a local agency of the IRS. Except for the headquarters in Beijing, the remaining tax authorities in China are all local tax bureau systems. This is the only remaining IRS. It should be said that Liaocheng retains and restores local culture and cultural relics well. At least you can see the remnants and prosperity of the past. In contrast, many places can only leave sadly. It occupies a large area, a rectangle of several hundred meters by several hundred meters. In the case of a small building area in the city at that time, this figure is very alarming. Linqing also relied on this ancient canal to become an important town in Hebei at that time. Hundreds of years have passed, and there is only a broken wall here, reflecting the old days in the setting sun.
The Linqing Canal Banknote Pass is located on the west bank of the Grand Canal 300 meters from the south of Aotouji. It was a direct agency established by the Ming and Qing central governments to supervise the taxation of water transport on the canal. It is also the only existing Canal Banknote Pass. This period of history is very interesting. You can imagine the prosperity of Linqing at that time.
First of all, the address label is indeed wrong. If you are traveling by car, first locate the destination at the Linqing City Justice Bureau and park the car on the side of the road. There is a small road 30 meters east of the Judicial Bureau and 100 meters south. The scenic spot is not big, and there are many things to see. It is a historical introduction about Chaoguan. It is very knowledgeable and worth visiting.
The location of the map is indeed wrong. Tell the locals "Judicial Street" when you take a taxi to find out the exact location. At this time, the surrounding villages are being demolished, which is of great help to understanding the ancient Caoyunchaoguan. The 10 yuan ticket is worth it!
