It's not a great scenic spot. Passing by, I suddenly miss it. It used to be a very dirty and messy living area. During the period, there were various grocery stores, snack stands and food stalls. In the evening, the stalls moved out of the next room sold steamed bread, fried fish, oil pies, stinky tofu and so on. Now it looks clean and tidy, but it also loses some of the fireworks in the house.
Xinghua four-arch building was called "Sijinfang" in the Ming Dynasty and four-arch building after the Qing Dynasty. As for the time when it was built, there is no exact record in all local chronicles of Xinghua. The earliest existing local chronicles of Xinghua are Ho Chi, which was established in 1559, the thirty-eighth year of Jiajing, Ming Dynasty. There are no records of Sicunfang or Sipailou in the whole article. There are 47 plaques on the four archways in Li Zhi's book in 1943, which were just in line with the number before the demolition in 1966. The inscriptions on the old plaques are unknown except for the inscriptions of "famous poets and painters" by Zheng Banqiao and "quiet and comfortable nature" by Xianfeng Royal Book. In the 1980s, the four archways in Xinghua City were rebuilt. The area of the four archways was almost double that of the original buildings. The original inscriptions were collected from the people. Fortunately, the "Wuyue Chaotian" on the top of the most symbolic building was still the ornaments of the old days.
The origin of "Sipailou" is related to the earliest Confucian Temple in Shanghai. The former Confucian Temple in Shanghai is located in the area of College Road of today's Sipailou Road. During the Shanghai Knife Club uprising, the buildings of the Confucian Temple were destroyed and razed to the ground. Because there were four archways here, they were called "Four Archways Street". Sipailou Road has always retained the old appearance of the civilian street in the old urban area. Now, under the influence of the commercial tide, Sipailou has become a special snack street.
Located in Nanjing, the ancient capital of the Six Dynasties, Zhong Ling Yuxiu and Hu Pi Longpan, the Four Architectures Tower has a hill in the city, named Qintianshan, also known as Jilong Mountain. On the hill, there is an Arctic Pavilion, which is built according to Xuanwu Lake in the north. The Southern Dynasty is one of the imperial gardens.
A pavilion with distinctive features has two layers of eaves, four corners flying upward, and plaques hanging on the outside of each side.
The building is very distinctive. It's just the style of old Shanghai that I like very much.
The architectural style here is unique, clean and tidy, fresh air, praise.
