Xu Xilin, a Martyr of the 1911 and the leader of the Anqing Uprising, is one of the celebrities who walked out of Dongpu Ancient Town. His former residence is located in Sunjiaxu, Dongpu Town, Shaoxing City. It is a typical Qing Dynasty architecture. From the ancient street, Sun Jialu has a clear sign to mark the location of his former residence, and he can finally see the location of his former residence through the alleys. The former residence of Xu Xilin is open to the public for free. The overall layout of the residence is three compartments and three entrances. It consists of a gate house, a hall, a building and a library, Tongying Bookstore, etc. It also exhibits Xu Xilin’s life and deeds and some old objects. Very typical Jiangnan Qing Dynasty residence.
It’s in Dongpu Ancient Town, also called Yellow Wine Town. There is the former residence of Xu Xilin, the patriotic general, and the birthplace of Lu You. It’s quite quiet now. No tickets are required. Parking is free. Parking is free.
This is the place where Xu Xilin lived. It has a long history. It was built in the Qing Dynasty and has an architectural style with Jiangnan characteristics. It is not very atmospheric, but a dignified and restrained feeling. Inside, it feels cool and refreshing in the small courtyard, mainly exhibiting the life of Xu Xilin. There are pictures and text introductions, as well as his furniture, halls, buildings, etc., you can remember this revolutionary.
If you want to see the charming scenery, these celebrities’ former residences are nothing worthy of your interest. The only thing is to look at these martyrs who once fought for us in a reverent mood. Without them, there would be no today. Our happy life.
A heavy sense of history, remembering people, patriotic and eternal, never forgetting history
