On the afternoon of August 11, 2018, my family and I drove three cars to Banliang Gucun in Gaoting Township, Yongxing County, Chenzhou City, Hunan Province. According to guide Awen, Banliang Village has a long history. It was first built in the late Song Dynasty and the early Yuan Dynasty. It was strong in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It has a history of more than 600 years. It is an important market town in Jinling County and a commercial port between Guiyang, Leiyang and Changning. Banliang people, outstanding Diling, is one of the main places of origin of the local surname Liu. More than 600 years ago, Liu Zifang, the ancestor of Banliang Liu, the brother of Liu Bang, the great ancestor of Han Dynasty, and the descendant of Liu Jiao, king of Chu, settled near the ancient Longquan Temple. Then, the sound of reading aloud in Banliang Private School of Xiamun sounded, and horses'hoofs burst on the ancient post road of Jinling. Water trade came along with Banxi River, and Banliang men set foot on the road of commerce. The first Qianzhuang rose in Zhongcun, and the crisp sound of copper coins echoed in the bluestone lane. There are more than 400 villages of Liu surname, about 80,000 people, migrated and developed from Banliang. Hundreds of officials in previous dynasties, with rich historical background and many legendary stories, are typical clan settlements in southern Hunan. Founding General Huang Kecheng moved from the rebellion in Banliang to the revolutionary road.
The village is very big. The village is still inhabited by primitive inhabitants and has not been overexploited. Some inhabitants in the village still have a very difficult life. I hope that part of the tourism income in the village can help the old people in the village! _______ Passing by a house that day, we saw an old man eating dinner in a dark environment. We went in and talked with the old man for a while. Although we could not understand the local language the old man spoke, we could also feel the enthusiasm of the old man. The environment of the house really made us sad. Hope the old people are healthy!

On rainy and snowy days, you can go out without wetting your shoes, and serve fifty tables without going to the village. Outstanding people, simple folkways, profound heritage, advocating farming and reading, history, architecture, sculpture, geomantic omen, photography and so on are amazing.
Banliang Ancient Village is a well-preserved ancient village. Now the ancient village presents a peaceful life picture everywhere. Villagers leisurely enjoy the peace and tranquility brought to them by the unique ancient village. After entering the village through a three-hole nine-slab stone bridge at the entrance of the village, they find that the village is a primitive slate road, most of the alleys are very narrow, and the villages can be seen everywhere. The impression left by the past era, such scenic spots as the Hope Mansion, the Grand Auditorium and the Longquan Ancient Temple in the village are worth looking at carefully.
Excess value, inexpensive tickets, hospitality of villagers, the village has an ancient flavor
