What people are saying:

This is the only water quadrangular boron building in Guangdong Ningyuan Tower is located on the bank of Baishiyong 50 meters in front of the East Village of Gualing Village, Xintang Town. It is a square columnar flat-roofed reinforced concrete brick-wood structure raised by overseas Chinese. It is also the only four-corner water tower in Guangdong. According to reports: Ground was broken in the 16th year of the Republic of China (1927) and completed in the 18th year of the Republic of China (1929). Sitting east to west and slightly north, with a side length of 6.4 meters, a 4-meter-wide and 5-meter-depth guarding ditch is dug around the building. The building is 21 meters high and covers an area of 162.72 square meters. The steel plate is embedded in the door frame, the double-leaf large iron door, and the iron suspension bridge is erected across the protective ditch in front of the door. There are narrow and long shooting holes on the four walls. On the east outer wall of the top floor, the three characters "Ningyuan Building" are molded, and there is a separate columnar Waipiaobao at the four corners that jumps out from the outside. After reaching the third floor, it is divided into a pointed cone shape, which looks like a bundled rocket from a distance. Very unique. There is a well on the first floor of the building, and the back wall of the second floor is inlaid with a "Stele on the Two Floors of Ningyuan and Tangyin". The reasons for the construction of the two buildings in Ningyuan and Tangyin were introduced in detail, and regulations on the use and management of the two buildings were formulated. The full text is more than 980 words. The remaining floors are equipped with forts and earthen-made iron cannons. The concrete staircase is on the left side of the building, and the climbing ladder can go straight to the top of the building.
