Heshun Ancient Town was an important town along the Southwest Silk Road. Built surrounding a mountain, Ming- and Qing-era ancestral halls, memorial archways, and ancient residences are spread through the town. The town's main attractions include the Museum of Dianmian War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression, Zhongtian Temple, the Wanlouzi (“curved building”) residential complex, the Liu Ancestral Hall, and the Ai Siqi (20th-century philosopher and author) Memorial. The town offers a rich variety of snacks with distinctive local flavor. There are many inns available in the town, most reconstructed out of traditional residences. One of these is worth a night’s stay to experience the ancient town’s tranquility.
