Songpan Ancient City (Songzhou Ancient City) City Wall was built in the Ming Dynasty, 10 miles in a circle. The total length of the wall is 6.2 kilometers, and the wall is made of local fired blue brick, filled with earth and stone, high 12.5 meters, 12 meters thick, and sewn with tatami, lime and garlic oil. There are seven gates, two cities inside and two cities outside. The walls of the gates are carved with stones, and they are very beautiful.
Songpan is an important historical memorial site. The Qing Xianfeng years, heavy taxes, Songpan Yi national heroes can be, led Tibetan and Qiang people held anti-Qing uprising. Songpan is also an important historical memorial site of revolution. The Red Army held five important meetings on the way to the Long March, including two (Shawo and Maoergai meetings) in Songpan. Since ancient times, Songpan has been the military side of the battle.
This seems to be the place where tourists from Huanglong stay at night. The sky is getting dark, and one after another tourist buses arrive here. The difference is that I traveled freely, and took a local bus for three yuan to come here. The ancient city of Songpan in the night is slightly mysterious. In the ancient city, gangs of tourists are cruising in the ancient city at night, which is also a scene.
To relive the hardships of the Red Army’s Long March, the Songpan grassland is a place to check in. The strategic situation that year was that Hu Zongnan's Kuomintang troops of more than 200 regiments surrounded, chased and intercepted them, and came to the plateau from all directions. The Red Army, with only more than 6,000 people, formed an iron wall. To the east is the Minjiang River, and Xue Yue’s 130 regiments are preparing to cross the Minjiang River to the west; to the south is Daxue Mountain and Liu Xiang’s 50 regiments are advancing to the north; to the north is the grassland and Hu Zongnan’s 27 regiments. Resist the danger and stick to the Songpan Passage, and to the west are the 15 regiments of Liu Wenhui, building fortifications to guard the Dadu River. The Red Army is at a very passive disadvantage.
In the morning, I got up to visit the ancient city. I saw that the market sold a bunch of wild mushrooms. The saliva was running fast. The soup must be delicious and nutritious. The gate building of the ancient city site is still good, you can go and learn the historical development process.
