Shenzhen Dapeng City was once a military fortress and a historical city; it is a quaint residential house and one of the hearts. This is the city of Dapeng, the first of the "Shenzhen Eight Views", the "Wulingyuan" in the downtown area, and the tranquility among the hustle and bustle. Historically, many outstanding military talents have emerged in the city of Dapeng, and the most famous ones belong to General Zhenwei and General Liu Qilong. Stepping into the generals, although it is not the same as before, people go to the sky, but when they think about it, the generals are bloody on the battlefield, and the spirit of defending the country is still echoing in the mind for a long time. For the city of historical fortress, Dapeng City naturally lacks a rich historical and cultural heritage. In the ancient city, the remains of the smoke pier, the castle tower and the Tianhou Palace are still visible. Although the ruins of the historical annual rings have long since disappeared, they are no longer the glory of the past, but it is not the best witness of historical changes. In addition to these, the generals in the ancient city are also worth a visit.
Dapeng City, built in the 27th year of Ming Hongwu, has been more than 600 years old and is a veritable ancient city. Looking at the mottled and heavy wall and looking back at the historical years of Dapeng Ancient City, people can't help but admire "the coastal city, Dapeng is the most". The "Sho" was the basic military unit in the Ming Dynasty. In order to protect the Lingnan town from invasion by foreign enemies, the court built a wall in Pengcheng Village, which is the origin of today's "Dapeng City". Since the construction, the city of Dapeng has been in the midst of war, and it has survived a period of time and vicissitudes. Under such a history, after continuous renovation and reconstruction, it finally preserved the appearance of today, quaint and heavy, and cleansed the hearts of the people.
There was a touch of movement between the alleys of the ancient city. How many footprints are carried on the bluestone board of the square block? How much effort did the finely shredded moss adorned the yellowed wall? How long have people living in front of the house with quaint lanterns lived here? Everything can make people feel the calmness and inconsistency that this ancient city has accumulated after years of accumulation.
You can see many interesting sights in the ancient city. It may be a small shop with a wall full of wine bottles, or a cute chalk on the small blackboard at the door, or a funny little decoration... Unlike many of the deliberate arts in todays ancient towns, the owner of the shop here seems to be Hao does not care whether the moss on the wall will affect his business. The casual and lazy decoration is somehow, but there is a flavor here, which is the kind of comfort that makes people smile.
Located not far from Shenzhen, China is Dapeng Fortress. It is interesting to see how the buildings used to be constructed. So small and close together. It is becoming more tourist oriented so it is best to go now while you can still capture some of the authenticity. #merrychristmas
Dapeng Ancient City was built during the rule of Emperor Ming Hongwu, and served as a defensive military fortress for South China during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Shenzhen's nickname, "Pengcheng," comes from this city. Many well-known military generals were produced here during the Ming Dynasty, including Liu Zhong, and five generals from three generations of the Lai family, giving the village its nickname, "General Village". Dapeng City has perfectly preserved city gates, castle towers, ancient streets and ancient homes, as well as the opportunity to see a selection of cultural and military-related relics related to the defense of the coast. It is a great place to learn about and bask in military history.
