Talk about this trip
Shanxi has always been a province that I really want to unlock. Over the years, I have learned a lot about the humanities and scenery of Shanxi. I can say that I love this place more and more, and I want to explore the most side of Shanxi. But Shanxi is very big. Whether it is historical or natural scenery, there are too many and many worthy of my exploration.
In the middle of this year, I went to Datong, Hengshan Hanging Temple, Yungang Grottoes, Datong Ancient City, etc., which left a deep impression on me. With the constant love with Shanxi, I came to Shanxi at the end of the six months. This time, it took four days to speed up the four cities, Taiyuan, Jinzhong, Changzhi and Jincheng. The four cities connected the ancient buildings of Shanxi. From the mansion to the official residence, from the Zongtang to the Chenghuang Temple, from the city gate to the city wall to the ancient city, we have the most exquisite Shanxi ancient architecture in the shortest time, and of course, the unforgettable Shanxi cuisine.
Two trips to Shanxi made me addicted to Shanxi. According to this rhythm development, maybe half a year later, I will come to Shanxi to explore other places, such as the Hukou Waterfall and the Taihang Mountain in a thousand miles… Jin is so beautiful, regardless of the landscape, the story behind the building, and People who live here. Exploring the most mountains is a very long thing that may need to be done with this life. But in this chapter of life, let’s taste the things about Shanxi architecture!
Old rules, first on a wave of Mito, tempting everyone!
After watching the beauty of the picture, let’s enjoy the beauty of the video!
Taiyuan: the shoulders of the world
Taiyuan is the provincial capital of Shanxi Province. It is called Jinyang in ancient times. It is also called Longcheng. It is a history with a history of more than 4,700 years and a city built in 2500 years. It is controlled by the mountains and rivers, and the shoulders of the world. The historical capital of the capital. Taiyuan City is surrounded by mountains on three sides, and the second largest tributary of the Yellow River flows from north to south. Since ancient times, it has been known as the “Jinxiu Taiyuan City”. This trip to Shanxi, Taiyuan as the first stop, is a perfect fit.
Jinci: Three treasures and three fine tastes
Jinci is the earliest extant classical ancestral garden building complex in China. The difficult old spring is the source of Jinshui. The colorful clay sculpture in the Madonna is amazing. The earliest existing Panlong carving column in China is also here. I have said before that the first stop of the trip to Shanxi is very suitable in Taiyuan, and the first stop of Taiyuan’s tour is to choose sightseeing, which is better and better!
Jinci was originally named Jin Wangxi, and the first name was Tang Shuzhen. It was built to commemorate the founding of the Jin Dynasty, the Tang dynasty (later being chased as the king of Jin) and the mother after the ginger. Jinci is the earliest existing imperial garden in China. It is the ancestral temple of Jin State. There are 98 buildings in the territory of more than 300 years, 110 statues, 300 tablets, and 37 works of art.Solemn and spectacular, elegant and elegant, the classic combination of the ancestral ritual architecture and natural landscape.
To visit Jinci, you have to look at the three treasures and the three. Jinci Sanbao refers to the fish marsh fly beam, the temple, the Temple of the Virgin, and the three absolutely refers to Zhou Bai Tang, Song Dynasty, and the old fountain.
Stepping into Jinci, the Golden People Taiwan first attracted our attention. There are four iron people in Jinrentai. Because iron is a genus of hardware, it is called “Golden Mantai”.
There is a vivid legend about the Iron Man. The statue of the southwestern scorpion was cast in the fourth year of the Northern Song Dynasty (1097) and is still intact. It is said that the Iron Man couldn’t stand the heat of summer and went to the Weihe River to think about the river. When I saw a small boat, I asked the boatman to take him across the river. The boatman broke the iron man’s truth and carried it back to the Jinrentai. The Virgin commanded the generals to cut three knives on the toes of the Iron Man. As a punishment for disobeying the commandments, the Golden Man’s feet still have three marks on the feet.
On the west back of the Jinrentai is the Yuefang, which is located on the central axis of Jinci and was built in the four years of Wanli (1576). The style of Yuefang is beautiful and the structure is magnificent. The above 匾 is written by Gao Yingyuan, a calligrapher of the Ming Dynasty. The two characters are the gold characters of the list, and the penpower is strong, just like a dragon.
Appreciate the interesting aspects of ancient architecture, just the story behind it. The history of Yuefang is also very worthy of understanding. According to legend, Gao Yingyuan’s mother suffers from migraine and stubbornness. After asking for a sign in front of Lu Zu, the sign said “Tian brick and tile”, Gao Yingyuan carefully observed in the temple and found that the temple, the church, the building, the pavilion, the pavilion, the platform and the bridge all had the same, but only the archway was lacking. I chose to build this archway in the Jinren Taixi, and wrote the plaque in the center.
Through the Yuefang, we came to the temple. The temple is a place for offering sacrifices. It was built in the 8th year of Jin Dading (1168). The temple is three wide and two deep. The beam frame is very special, only a layer of flat beam is placed on the four rafts, which is simple and economical, and light and sturdy. In addition to the middle and front of the temple, the temple is built with a thick wall, shaped like a pavilion, smart and unconstrained. The present temple was renovated in the original style in 1995. It maintains the characteristics of the Jin Dynasty architecture and is a gem in ancient Chinese architecture.
Between the Temple of the Virgin and the Temple of the Feast is the fish marsh fly beam. The ancients used the square as the marsh and the circle as the pool. Because it is square, there are many fish in the water, hence the name “fish marsh.” There is a cross-shaped bridge on the marsh. The ancients had the saying that “the bridge is empty, if it is flying,” and “flying beam and stone, the mausoleum crosses the waterway”, so the “flying beam”.
The east and west bridges are wide and the main road to the Temple of the Virgin, while the north and south bridges are slanting like two birds. There are also 34 small octagonal stone columns in the marsh, and the bridge is lined with hooks. This kind of strange and sleek cross-shaped bridge is rare. Therefore, the architect Liang Sicheng commented: “This type of stone pillar bridge, occasionally seen in ancient paintings, the real thing is only an isolated case, it is valuable.” It has a very high price for the study of ancient Chinese bridge construction.
Formerly known as “Girls”, the Temple of the Virgin was founded in Song Tiansheng (1023–1032) and is the oldest surviving building in Jinci. The hall is solemn and quaint, magnificent and magnificent. Its shape, specification and construction method are examples in the architecture of the Song Dynasty in China, with high historical value and artistic value.
There are eight large columns on the promenade of the Temple of the Virgin, and each large column is surrounded by a dragon. These dragons are glaring and clawed, and the winds of the whole body are born from the clouds. They are angry. Although they have been for nearly a thousand years, they have to be smashed. Woodcarving Panlong is the earliest existing Panlong carving column in China, carved in the second year of Song Yuanyou (1087).
The hall of the Temple of the Virgin is wide and sloppy, and there is no pillar in the temple. This not only increases the majesty of the Virgin in the tall gods, but also provides a good condition for setting up the statue. There are 41 beautiful statues of the Song Dynasty in the temple, and 2 statues in the Ming Dynasty. Among these colorful sculptures, the ginger is in the middle of the seat, the state is solemn, graceful and luxurious, Feng Guan Xia, is the image of a court ruler. The image of the statue is vivid, vivid and has different modalities. It is a precious material for studying the sculpture art and costumes of the Song Dynasty.
Jinshui has three sources, one is Shanliquan, the other is the fish marsh spring, and the other is the difficult old spring. Difficult Spring is the main spring in Sanquan. The source of Jinshui flows out from here, and it has been around for a long time, and the water temperature is kept at 17 °C, which is very amazing.
Difficult Old Spring is commonly known as the “South China Sea Eye”. It is from the broken rock formation and floods all the year round. In the Northern Qi Dynasty, according to the “Yongxi Difficulty” sentence in the “Book of Songs”, it was named “Difficult Old Spring”. There is a pavilion on the spring. The pavilion hangs the words “Difficult Springs” written by Fushan, a scholar of the Qing Dynasty. When Li Bai came here, he once said: “Jinyi water is like jasper.”
Originally thought that the architecture of Shanxi is a typical rough style in the north, but did not expect to find the feeling of Jiangnan in Jinci. It is winter, and the trees are a little bit depressed. I want to come here in spring and summer. There must be an illusion that it is like Jiangnan.
Zhou Bai Tang Yan, both of them are representatives of the golden millennium ancient wood. Zhou Bai is a cypress plant planted in the Zhou Dynasty. It is lush and lush and is located on the north side of the Temple of the Virgin. Originally there were two strains, named Qi Nian Gubai, and now only this one is left. Tang Zhen was the banyan tree planted in the Tang Dynasty. It is located in front of the water mirror and is the most lush tree in the ancient Jinci. Every spring and summer season, the trees are shaded by green. Zhou Baitang’s trunk is thick and strong, and it takes several people to get together.

Shanxi Pasta Museum: a museum where you can eat
The world pasta is in China, and the Chinese pasta is in Shanxi. There are 280 kinds of well-documented pasta in Shanxi. If you eat one every day, it will not be repeated for half a year! So when I travel to Shanxi, how can I not taste pasta? So what do you want to know about Shanxi pasta? Of course, I am going to the Shanxi Pasta Museum in Taiyuan City. Unlike the general museum, it is a museum where you can eat and watch performances. If you like to follow the drama “Running Man”, then you must have an impression on this place. At that time, some games about pasta were recorded here.
The buildings in Jinci are too rich, so after the tour of the ancestral hall, the afternoon time will pass. The warm sun fell, the night was unveiled, and at night we came to the Shanxi Pasta Museum, which is the Shanxi Guild Hall. We first learned about Shanxi pasta and then tasted Shanxi pasta.
Shanxi Pasta Museum
The Shanxi Pasta Museum consists of three floors. The first and second floors are the pasta display area and the Shanxi famous and famous product display area. The third floor is the physical display area for the pasta production process, including farming equipment, grinding equipment and pasta processing equipment. It fully demonstrates the history of traditional farming culture and pasta production. The whole building, integrated, dining, tourism and shopping combined, the combination of viewing and experience, is a physical romance landscape in Taiyuan.
The Shanxi Pasta Museum inherits the characteristics of Shanxi, tapping the coarse grains of Jinbei, the special noodles of Jinnan, and the cakes of the Shangdang area in Jinzhong. There are many kinds of noodles here, all kinds of foods, and fine products, and really make coarse grains.
This flower garden is also too delicate, and everything is like a work of art. The flower garden is a Chinese folk flour, also known as “face flower”, which is steamed in the Shanxi country. Wenxihuayu is a traditional name of Wenxi County, Yuncheng City, Shanxi Province. It is named after various styles. It is popular in the Ming and Qing Dynasties and has a history of more than 1,000 years.
Walking through this corridor, you will feel the power of Shanxi pasta, which is so diverse that you can’t remember them. Visitors can pick up the food they want to eat while learning about pasta. The Shanxi Pasta Museum is more than just a museum. It is also a clubhouse and a restaurant. The museum that can eat has opened up my new understanding.
Pushing this festive door, we came to the dining area. This red and hot atmosphere made me once suspect that I was coming to drink wine, and my mood was inexplicably followed by joy.
It is one of the top ten pastas in Shanxi and is a famous traditional pasta snack in the alpine region of Shanxi. The craftsmanship is exquisite, the appearance is beautiful, and the taste is strong. Even when Emperor Kangxi worships Mount Wutai, he is also a good life.
In Shanxi, there is such a saying: “Thirty miles of noodles, forty miles of cakes, twenty miles of white face hungry.” It means that people can take a 30-mile mountain road after eating noodles, eat a yellow rice cake and walk forty miles of mountain roads, and eat the food made from white noodles and walk twenty miles to be hungry. It is. It can be seen that the noodles are a super full food.
When I was in Datong, I tasted the copper pot hot pot. After I went back, I always remembered it. This time I ate it again at the Shanxi Pasta Museum, which is a solution.
Needless to say, the variety of noodles is natural. In addition to the delicate noodles, the Shanxi Pasta Museum has other dishes. After the meal was almost finished, the stage began to perform. Many programs are representative of Shanxi culture, one by one, let us not only understand the Shanxi cuisine, but also understand the profound Shanxi culture.
Among the many programs, my favorite is the two ghost wrestling. The second ghost wrestling, also known as the two wrestling wrestling and the two-wife wrestling, is a long-established traditional folk entertainment, mainly in Xiayan and surrounding counties and cities.
The second ghost wrestling is a props with two ghosts wrestling. Through the integrated coordination movements of the performers’ legs, back, arms, etc., the audience is presented with two “ghosts” in the appearance of wrestling. This kind of traditional folk dance has been circulated for hundreds of years and is now facing a lost position. Now it is an intangible cultural heritage.
The performer on the stage is a grandfather in his 60s. Because the learning process of the two ghost wrestling is very hard, and the income of the performers is not high, the young people are not willing to learn, so there are few inheritors. The performance of the second ghost wrestling was very labor-intensive. After the performance, the grandfather took off the props and couldn’t say anything without panting. It was very moving and paid tribute to his spirit.
Marrying culture has always been very interesting. This program is a program that interacts with the audience. Visitors will be invited to go to the groom. Young boys can seize this opportunity.
In the end, there will be noodles and craftsmen performing performances such as noodles, noodles, and waterfalls. The performers are artists who have represented China on many occasions. After the performance, there will beThe lucky draw will be given to tourists, such as vinegar and jujube. The Shanxi Pasta Museum gave me a new understanding of the museum. In the past I might say that the museum is boring, but it is fun.

Jinzhong: The cradle of Shanxi merchant culture
Jinzhong is located in the central part of Shanxi Province, east of Taihang Mountain, west of Weihe River, with mountains, rivers and hills in the territory, and four distinct seasons. Jinzhong is rich in tourism resources, and its natural and cultural landscapes are scattered all over the place. The tourist attractions that can be developed account for about one-tenth of Shanxi Province. Nowadays, a number of provincial tourism products such as Pingyao Ancient City, Shanxi Merchants Folk Culture Tourist Area have been formed. Jinzhong is an important part of the Chinese civilization. One of the birthplaces of Jin culture, the cradle of the Shanxi merchant culture, the first financial institution in China’s history, the “Rising Sun” ticket number was born here.
Qiao Family Courtyard: The Royal Palace has a Forbidden City.
A movie “The Red Lantern Hangs High” let me know the Qiao Family Courtyard, a “Qiao Family Courtyard” to let everyone know about the Qiao Family Courtyard. In general, foreigners’ perception of Shanxi businessmen should initially be the Qiao Family Courtyard. Qiao Family Courtyard is a majestic architectural group. The design is exquisite and the craftsmanship reflects the unique style of Chinese Qing Dynasty residential architecture. It has a high degree of appreciation, scientific research and historical value. It is an unparalleled treasure trove of art. Known as “a pearl of the northern residential architecture”, it is known as “the royal family has the Forbidden City, and the house looks at the Qiao family”. It is famous for its three Jins and is well-known at home and abroad.
Qiao Family Courtyard
When it comes to the sights of Shanxi, the Qiao Family Courtyard is a representative. Walking into the gates of the scenic spot, there is a long avenue. On both sides of the road are many sculptures about the Shanxi merchants. Before I got to this wall, I really entered the Qiao family.
Walking into the deep wall of Qiao’s house, you can see the red lantern hanging high. At the end of the road are four special eye-catching red lanterns with the words of Qiao’s compound. The red lantern seems to be the standard of the Qiao family compound, but in fact the original Qiao family compound is not red lanterns, and the plot in the movie has nothing to do with the history of the Qiao family. It was only at that time that Zhang Yimou chose to take a picture of the Qiao Family Courtyard. Many red lanterns were hung during the filming. Later, when the filming was over, it was not taken down. It was always dressed like this.
Qiao Family Courtyard, also known as Zhongtang, was built in 1756 in Qiaojiabao Village, Jixian County, Shanxi Province. The entire courtyard is in the shape of a double “hi”, divided into 6 large courtyards, with 20 small courtyards and 313 houses.The Qiao Family Courtyard faces the street. It is surrounded by a fully enclosed blue brick wall of more than 10 meters. The gate is a gate-style cave. It is an ancient house with traditional northern residential architecture.
There are more than 5,000 precious cultural relics in the Chen Family Courtyard, which reflects the customs of the people in the Jinzhong area of Shanxi. There are exhibitions of folk customs, life rituals, seasons, clothing, food, shelter, trade, folk crafts, as well as exhibitions of Qiaojia historical materials, Qiaojia treasures, and film and television special topics.
Appreciating the architecture of the Qiao Family Courtyard requires a combination of the history of the Qiao family to be more interesting. Qiao’s family is a famous merchant family in Shanxi. The saying goes that the rich is not three generations, while the Qiao family is a family rich for four generations. The children of Qiao’s family, Qi Qizu, have family rules, are not allowed to gamble, are not allowed to be jealous, and are not allowed to drink alcohol. This is also an important reason for the long-term prosperity of Qiao’s business.
When it comes to Joe’s family, I have to talk about Joe Zhiyong. Qiao Zhiyong is the third generation of Qiaojia in Jixian County. He wanted to go into the career, but when he was just in the middle of the exam, his brother died, so he had to abandon the text. Qiao Zhiyong is the longest-lived person in Qiao’s family and lived to be 89 years old. He married six wives in his life, but he was not a nephew. Because Joe’s family did not allow Nayong’s family rules, Joe’s wife’s wife was a continuation.
There are many buildings in the Qiao Family Courtyard, but the most important thing is this room with the “Zhongtang” plaque. In fact, “in the middle of the hall” is the real name of the Qiao family compound. The name of this house was originally called Zhongtang, and the Qiao family compound is just a common name.
In Zhongtang, there were more than two hundred years of time. Later, because of the outbreak of the war, the family abandoned the family and fell away. Until Zhang Yimou came to this film, “The Red Lantern Hangs High”, it will be pushed to the world again in Zhongtang. In the Qiao Family Courtyard, you can see many places to see the scene. If you remember this movie very deeply, you should be able to recall a lot of shots.
There are many treasures in the Qiao Family Courtyard. The one in front of you is the Kowloon screen. The object with the dragon naturally can’t be separated from the palace. The screen of the Kowloon is flowing out of the palace. Under the chance of coincidence, the Joe family bought a huge sum of money to buy it back. The screen of the Kowloon is made of huanghuali wood, and the nine dragons on it are alive. A closer look reveals that there are still 72 dragons, so the total is eighty-one dragons. They each have their own postures and are quite royal.
The Kowloon Lantern is the redwood of the Qing Dynasty. The main body of the lamp is connected to the upper and lower shafts and is divided into three layers. The upper layer is a gourd-shaped hanging button with four dragons under it, the dragon head is high, and the dragon body is curled. The middle layer is an octagonal octagonal lamp body, in which four sides are glass landscape paintings and four sides are mercury glass. There are five dragons on the lower level, four of which are headed upwards, and the dragon body is in the shape of a “卍”, which can be rotated and flexed. There are lampstands and wax sticks on the faucet. Another dragon head is down, can be turned on all sides, and the dragon body is on the main shaft.
The craftsmanship of the Kowloon Light is exquisitely crafted and exquisite, and the structure is unique and ingenious. It is a luxurious and practical wood carving craft. Empress Dowager Cixi fled in the invasion of the Eight-Power Allied ForcesWhen I went to Xi’an, Qiao’s family donated 300,000 yuan of silver and the Queen Mother to solve their urgent needs. After the Empress Dowager Cixi thanked his loyalty and rewarded two Kowloon lights, the country has yet to find a third.
In the No. 3 courtyard of Qiao’s home, there is a rhinoceros moon mirror, which is about one meter in diameter, two meters high and one ton in weight. It is made of the hardest rare wood of wood. It is a national first-class cultural relic and also a Qiao family. The treasure of the town house. The whole baby consists of three parts. The mirror on the top represents the round moon, the middle is the auspicious cloud, and the base is the rhinoceros. Therefore, it is called the rhinoceros moon mirror.
The rhinoceros moon mirror has a unique shape and beautiful appearance. It has both practical value and ornamental value. It is called a rare treasure. The homonym of the rhinoceros is “the happy cow”, which is the mascot of the good luck and the joy of falling from the sky. When the owner of the Jin merchant giant Qiao family heard this legend, he respected the “Rhinoceros looking at the moon” as the treasure of the wealthy town house. From then on, “Mingyue Gaozhao Xiangyun circling, living and working in good luck”.
Why do you want to shoot this door knocker? There is also a saying. It is said that knocking on the door knocker means “one peace”.
The brick carving process in the Qiao Family Courtyard is everywhere, and the subject matter is also very wide. There are wall carvings, ridge carvings, screen carvings, and handrail carvings. Different carving patterns have different meanings.
Although the stone carving technique in the Qiao Family Courtyard is relatively rare, it is very fine. There are several pairs of stone lions in different forms, some of which are embarrassing, and some have a sense of vitality.
After reading a few houses, I continued to move forward. Suddenly, I suddenly came to the garden. There is a stone wall with the words of the Qiao Family Courtyard. It is a great place for tourists to take a photo.
Do you think that you have finished visiting the Qiao Family Courtyard? How is it possible, Joe’s family can be big, continue to look forward, but also rich! There is also a stage where you can watch the show, and a variety of snacks are waiting for you.
Walking out of the courtyard where the stage is located, you can see some of the houses displaying some folk customs of Shanxi and the tools of ancient labor.
The tour of the Qiao Family Courtyard is coming to an end, but before the end, you can see the exquisite ponds and pavilions. In this house, the things you have are really rich. After the Qiao Family Courtyard, there will be a long and long commodity street, which will not be seen until the end.A variety of specialties in Shanxi, the price is not expensive, you can consider starting.
TIPS: Open from 08:00 to 18:45 in the summer and 08:30 to 17:00 in the winter. The ticket price is 138 yuan, and the tour guide fee is 120 yuan. Visitors can take the plane or train to Taiyuan, take the bus from Taiyuan to Qixian at Jiannan Bus Station and go straight to the Qiao Family Courtyard. You can also take the train to Jixian County, then take the shuttle bus from Jixian to Xiaoyi and go straight to the Qiaojia Courtyard.
Pingyao Ancient City: The most complete ancient county in China
Fortunately, when I was in college, there were two students from Shanxi in the same dormitory. They gave me a lot of famous scenic spots in Shanxi. But among the many attractions, I am most interested in the ancient city of Pingyao. Today, many years later, I finally got the wish to pull out the ancient city of Pingyao. In 2009, Pingyao Ancient City was named by the World Record Association as the most complete ancient county in China. It is known as one of the “four best preserved ancient cities” and is the only one in China that has successfully declared the world cultural heritage with the entire ancient city. One of the two ancient cities.
Pingyao Ancient City
I originally wanted to come to Pingyao. I just wanted to go to the ancient city to see the architecture. Many beautiful pictures on the network made me feel the simplicity and weight of the ancient city buildings in Pingyao. The original sense deeply attracted me. Now I have seen the ancient city of Pingyao, and many buildings in the ancient city have really shocked me.
The general ancient city has four gates, and Pingyao Ancient City is different. It has six gates. Walking into the city gate, the first thing I saw was two deep wheel prints. It is said that the ancient Pingyao ancient city darts industry is very developed, and there are so many goods escorted. Over time, there will be such a deep mark.
Then, we came to appreciate the city wall. The city wall was built in the Western Zhou Dynasty, and it was a city of earth. Rebuilt in the third year of Ming Hongwu (1370), it was expanded from the original “Nine Miles and Eighteen Steps” to “Twelve Miles and Four Points and Four Points”, which was about 6.4 kilometers, and became a masonry wall. There are four corners of the Four Corners, and there is a little Taiwan on the east wall. The southeast corner of the city is built on the top of the Kuixing Building and Wenchang Pavilion.
A bird’s-eye view of the ancient city of Pingyao, the same turtle that wants to move, the head of the tortoise is south to the north, and the four gates of the east and west are four-legged. The folks have the saying of “gull city.” Beyond the South Gate, the ancient Zhongdu River passed by, which triggered the literary feelings of the ancient literati, “the turtles are playing in the water, the mountains and rivers are rising, and the city is built.” The tortoise is a symbol of auspiciousness and longevity. The “turtle city” is derived from the ancient people’s worship of the “four spirits”. The “turtle city” means the fixation of the golden soup and long-term stability.
The tower was built on the top of the city gate of the city. In ancient times, it was sometimes called the “tower”. There are six towers in the Pingyao City Wall. It was built in the Ming Dynasty. The height of the tower is 16.14 meters, the width of the five rooms is 13.72 meters, and the depth of the four rooms is 10.04 meters. The tower is a beautiful and beautiful high-rise building on the top of the city wall. It can usually be seen as a high-rise building. It will be the main high-altitude defense facility in the city. The ancient city of Pingyao has a simple and elegant shape and a dignified structure.
Nowadays, strolling on the city wall, there is no war of smoke, some are just the comfortable life of the locals, and the leisurely figure of the tourists.
The ancient city of Pingyao has basically maintained its original pattern since the reconstruction of Ming Hongwu three years (AD 1370). The layout of the dwelling houses is rigorous, the axis is clear, the left and right are symmetrical, the main and the secondary are distinct, the contours are undulating, the appearance is closed, and the courtyard is deep. Exquisite wood carvings, brick carvings and stone carvings are complemented by strong paper-cut windowflowers. They are vivid and vivid, reflecting the historical and cultural characteristics of the Han nationality around the 14th and 19th centuries. They studied the social form, economic structure and military of this period. The human settlements of defense, religious belief, traditional thought and ethics have important reference value, and are the most intact ancient residents’ communities in the Han nationality.
The roads in Pingyao Ancient City are intricate, with four streets, eight small streets and seventy-two lanes. In so many streets, my favorite is South Street. South Street is the central axis of Pingyao Ancient City. It starts from the junction of East and West Streets in the north and Dananmen in the south. It is the Yingshui Gate, and the ancient city building runs through the north and south. On both sides of the street, the old name and the traditional shop are row upon row, which should be regarded as the most prosperous traditional commercial street in the ancient city. It is said that during the Qing Dynasty, South Street controlled more than 50% of the country’s financial institutions, so it is known as China’s “Wall Street.” No, to be precise, there is no Wall Street in the world in 1824, and the cause of Wall Street has been created here. Now we are strolling on the South Street and still feel the prosperity.
The ancient city of Pingyao is not just a building that is shocking. After the tour, it is known that its historical heritage is more intriguing. Although Pingyao is only a county, its economy is very developed. It can be said to be a rich enemy in the Qing Dynasty! It is said that in the Qing Dynasty, the most wealthy place in China was Shanxi, and the most convenient place in Shanxi was Pingyao. So why is Pingyao rich in the enemy? Because the financial industry here is very developed, in the 18th year of Jiaqing, the city’s monuments were rebuilt, and there are more than 700 Pingyao firms. The first ticket number in China was born in Pingyao, which is located in the ancient city of Rishengchang.
There are many ruins on the South Street, and we choose to enter the collaborative celebration. At the time of the initial establishment, the synergy number of the ticket was only 360,000, which was less than one-tenth of that of the company. However, in the later period, the capital turnover was fast, the business throughput was large, and the profit was very high, which surprised other ticket numbers. . Li Hongling, a famous ticket reformer, evaluated the synergy in “The Success and Failure of Shanxi Ticket Merchants”: “It is based on Wanjin, rising from the end of Xianfeng, winning the winner, and only celebrating the industry.” Of course, the political circles, of course, the business world is not alone, “people save, then people die, waste everything, everything is true”, “winning and losing, are all people”.
The floor tiles on the floor are printed with the pattern of copper coins. At this time, the position of the station is the vault. The feeling of standing on the money is not too good~
Everything here is like the ancient time, the gold well that lifted the money, the money ticket for the money. If you are interested, you can also experience the process of withdrawing money. Everything seems to have passed through the bustling era.
In the collaborative celebration ticket number, we can go down to the underground vault to see and feel the feeling of immersing in the money pile. At that time, when “Running Man” was recording the money house, it was the scene that was coordinated here.
Synergy is a unique ticket number in the Chinese ticket industry. Its location is located at the bone ridge of the ancient city turtle-shaped map, and it is also the center of the ancient city. People say that this is the best place for feng shui in the ancient city. So people put a dragon column here, it is said that here, when you touch the dragon column and turn it around, you can make a fortune.
After the completion of the collaborative celebration ticket, we went into the Chenghuang Temple. The Chenghuang Temple in Pingyao Ancient City is a bureaucratic Taoist temple with a long history, rich historical and cultural connotations and complete religious regulations. It is centered on the main hall of the city, and it is composed of four parts: Liu Cao, Land Hall, Zaojun Temple and Caishen Temple. The scale of the building is huge, and the temple building is well preserved. It is a treasure in the county-level city-level temple.
The Chenghuang Temple in Pingyao Ancient City is also very distinctive in its architectural structure. The wooden structure of each temple, the opening, the upper limit, the wood carvings and the use of glass components are strictly in accordance with the feudal rituals at the time, and the craftsmanship is superior and more unique. Where. Every pavilion and pavilion pays attention to the carved and painted buildings, which are exquisite and meticulous. From one aspect, it shows the development level and rich financial resources of Pingyao County’s business in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and the resulting elegant cultural demand. It is a landmark building that embodies the wisdom of the ancient Chinese working people.
A ticket to the ancient city, you can visit more than 20 attractions, so in addition to the collaborative celebration number, there are many monuments worth seeing, like the county, the Temple of Literature and so on.
There are many specialty shops in Shanxi in the ancient city, and there is a vinegar in addition to the face that has to be sold in Shanxi. You may wish to walk into a vinegar workshop to learn about the process of making vinegar, and then taste the vinegar in Shanxi.
This time, I spent half a day in Pingyao Ancient City. I lived in the ancient city at night and left in the morning. I feel that the time is shorter. If you ask me how long it is for Pingyao Ancient City, I think it will take at least three days. Moreover, it is said that “Seeing Pingyao” is a very worthwhile performance. We have not been able to see it due to limited time, so it is recommended to arrange a little more time in Pingyao.
It must be said that the night in Pingyao Ancient City is also worth to feel. To say that the ancient city of Pingyao during the day is heavy, then the ancient city of Pingyao at night is leisurely. Most of the shops and restaurants selling souvenirs during the day are very popular, and in the evening, various dessert shops, snack bars and bars are full of fun. During the day, you will have a deep history and enjoy the leisure time at night.
The bar can go to listen to the songs in advance, feel good and then stay, it is not good to turn around and leave, it is not mandatory, it is comfortable.
In Pingyao Ancient City, the consumption standard is a conscience price, and it feels not in the scenic area, but in the place where the locals live. Wild sea buckthorn juice can buy three bottles of ten yuan, a child’s costume is only a set of fifty yuan, and a foot massage for one hour as long as thirty yuan. I thought that this place that was once rich and enemies must be super high, but I did not expect it to be so close to the people. No wonder everyone said that Pingyao Ancient City is a place where you can stay here and enjoy your life slowly.
TIPS: The ticket price is 130 yuan, and you can visit more than 20 points by ticket. The ancient city is open all day and the attractions are open from 08:00 to 18:00. Visitors can take the train to Pingyao Station, then take a five-minute taxi ride from the train station to the ancient city and walk for about ten minutes. Visitors can also go to Taiyuan first, then take a car to Pingyao, but the car is slower and more expensive than the train, so most tourists choose to take the train.
In Pingyao, we chose to live in the ancient city, so that we can better feel the night of the ancient city, and choose the antique Pingyao Hall. The Pingyao Clubhouse is located in the bustling area of Chenghuang Temple Street, one of the four streets of the ancient city. It is a super-large Jin culture theme house with rich local traditional features. The facilities in the pavilion are elegant and luxurious, with distinctive features and unique styles. We are pleasantly surprised by the elegance and luxury of the Shanxi merchants’ life.

Today, Pingyao Hall is a better inn in the ancient city. There are many rooms, performing arts halls, banquet halls, elegant rooms, chess and card rooms, large and medium-sized meeting rooms in the hall, so that guests can enjoy comfortable and fast service.
After I checked in, I walked on such a quaint street with my suitcase and felt a little through! Going into the room again, um~ I told myself affirmatively that I must have returned to the most prosperous era in Pingyao.
Many small details in the room captured my heart, and I felt that it was right to live in the old city. Star hotels are naturally luxurious, but such rooms are not more attractive!
Dinner is eaten in the Pingyao Hall, where the dishes are very rich. Pingyao beef is not only a special product of Pingyao, but also a national geographical indication product of China. Pingyao beef has long been famous, and there is no test in the age of origin. It was well-known in the Qing Dynasty. During the Jiaqing period of the Qing Dynasty, the three generations of the deaf Lei Jinning and his descendants, there was a prosperous thunder beef shop in Wencheng Street in the city, which lasted for more than 100 years. At the end of the Guangxu period, there was a talented person and his son, Yang Wen, who set up a self-contained beef shop in the West Street of the city.

Changzhi: The world’s ridge is long
Changzhiyuan was the name of the county where the government of Fu’an Prefecture was located. It was named after the eight years of Ming Jiajing (1529). Changzhi is located in the southeast of Shanxi Province, at the junction of the three provinces of Shanxi, Henan and Henan. The whole territory is located in the Shangdang Basin surrounded by the Taihang Mountain of Taihang Mountain. Because “the top of the Taihang, the highest terrain, and the day for the party”, so the ancient name of the party, known as the “world ridge” reputation. In the city, there is a party gate of the ancient Shangdang County Department, and the largest existing temple in the city with a central axis of 408 meters.
Shangdangmen: There is only one second floor and two halls left
Originally came to Changzhi to explore the Taihang Mountain, but because it is winter, the scenic area is very dangerous, so it is no longer open. So we changed our plan to carry the building to the ground. If you are interested in Taihang Mountain, you may wish to choose summer. Ever since, we have come to the Shangdang Gate. The Shangdang Gate is a representative building of Changzhi City. When we came to Changzhi, we had to look at the party.
Shangdangmen was the gate of the Shangdang County Office of the Sui Dynasty. It was built in the Kaihuang Period of the Sui Dynasty (about 581 to 600 AD) and is located on Gaogang, the northern end of Fupo Street in the center of Changzhi City. The term “governing party” refers to the highest place on the Taihang Mountains. “Release name” explains: “The party, the place is also on the mountain, its highest, so it is on the party.” At that time, the gate of the Shangdang Gate was 1,500 meters above sea level. It was very majestic and climbed to the gate. The scenery of the ancient city of Shangdang was vivid and the mountains were close to the water.
Today’s Shangdang Gate only has gates, bells and drums on the second floor, Fu Er Tang, office buildings, and West Garden. The gate is arranged in parallel with the second floor of the bell and drum. The base is high and the main and the subordinates are different. The large facade is three wide, deep into the four, open the door in the Ming Dynasty, and the brick wall is built twice in the middle of the brick wall. Roof gray ridged gray beast, simple tile decoration.

The top ten bowls of the West Fire: the top ten bowls
At noon we came to Xihuo Village and tasted the famous West Fire Bowl. The top ten bowls are traditional Han banquets, which originated from the ancient town of Xihuo in the Shangdang area during the Song and Yuan Dynasties. At that time, there were ten families living on the south slope of Xihuo Village. There was a Yuan member in the village. The family was well-off and diligent. Yuan Yuan’s appearance was that every household was too wasteful to eat and drink. It was proposed that everyone should have the best dishes to gather together and enjoy them. This means that there is both perfection and concern in the neighborhood. So every household responded and the family made it. Later, there was the legend of “Nanshan’s feast, a table of ten bowls”, and the “Ten Bowls” came. For thousands of years, the times have changed, the social development, the traditional ten bowls of banquets continue to inherit and improve, and become the most grand banquet for the people of Guzhen to entertain VIPs and birthday wedding banquets.

Although the five bowls of soup are very similar, in fact, the sweet and delicious “Ten Bowl” is a bowl of a taste, a bowl of a meaning. After eating, it is very memorable and full of praise.

In addition to the top ten bowls, its home sauna squid and roasted whole rabbit are also very worth eating, and it is delicious to be our CD.
The city of the world: the only place in the land of China
After lunch, we came to the world not far from the restaurant.Ducheng. The Chenghuang Temple that I have seen in the past is built in the city pool, and this Changzhi County Ducheng Temple is far from the ancient city of the Shangdang. It is said that the land of Shenzhou is unique. It stands on the Tianzi Ridge on the west side of Xiongshan Mountain and is spectacular. Here we feel the aura of heaven and earth, bathing in the warm sunshine.
“The world is in the middle of the city”, facing the south, the independent hills, magnificent, and majestic in the mountains of the upper part of the southern boundary of the Tianzi Ridge. The city has a long history and is well preserved. According to legend, the emperor of the Eastern Han Dynasty, the emperor of the Eastern Han Dynasty, Liu Xiuzhen, was built over the past two thousand years. It has been repaired many times in the past, and the existing main building group still retains the original pattern.
The Temple of the City is a complete single-in-one courtyard. From the bottom of the mountain to the 108-level gravel steps in front of the temple, it is very steep and straight to the south of the party. The capital of the world is divided into upper and lower houses. The upper house has the main hall of the Lingbi Hall, the temple, the temple and the east and west rooms. There is a theater building in the lower house, and there are cosmetic buildings and viewing buildings on both sides. The entire building is covered with ridges, carved and painted, delicate and magnificent. The architectural style of the temple blends with the legacy of the past, and the carving styles vary. The landscapes and flowers, insects, birds and beasts are in various poses and lifelike.
Because the capital of the world is in the mountains and the top of the southern boundary of the Tianzi Ridge, the view here is very good, condescending, panoramic view. On one side of the temple is a long row of lanterns connected by a drum tower, which adorns the sluggish winter. Look at the distance and see a nice view here.
Don’t underestimate the 108 steps, we are panting, but what we climbed up to see is the vigorous and powerful “the world”. With regard to the origin of the words “the world is in the city”, we must understand.
Legend has it that there was only one small temple on the Ziling Mountain. When Wang Xiu was chasing Liu Xiu to Tianziling, Liu Xiu was already dry and unable to escape. Seeing that the chase was approaching, Liu Xiuyi rushed to the mountain god. Run in the temple. The mountain temple was dilapidated, but the door was covered with a large spider web, and Liu Xiu panicked in the past, and the spider web was poked into a big hole.
When he entered the temple and saw that the spider web had broken, he could not help but sigh: “When the thief arrived, I saw that the spider had broken. I was expected to be in the temple. Can I live?” When he thought of this, he “plopped” and slammed into the platform. Before the prayer: “Mountain God shows the spirit, if you can bridge the cobweb and save the life, he will re-enter the dragon in the day, and seal you as the city of the world.” When the words were finished, the spider web had already been closed, and the door was covered. More and more strict.
In a short while, the murderous Wang Hao led the men to arrive, and they couldn’t see Liu Xiu’s traces. They wanted to go into the temple to search. When he saw the spider net cover door, there was no trace of it, and he hurried toI chased it elsewhere. Later, Liu Xiu Dengji, really sealed this place as “the city of the world”, and rebuilt the temple, the pro-book plaque. Tianziling is also called “City Ridge”.
Entering the courtyard, starting from the mountain gate, the buildings such as the theater building, the pavilion and the main hall are built on the third platform. The mountain gate and the theater building are integrated into one, the theater building is sitting down, and the wing room is facing each other. The pavilion is wide and has three sheds. The main hall is three wide and deep into the six plaques. The between the pillars and the pillars are engraved with vivid flowers and birds, martial arts knights and drama story characters. Many of the buildings in the temple today are newly built, but this main hall is a historical monument.
Come to the last yard of the capital city, this is a Taoist temple, the red wall here is charming, it is very suitable for portrait photos.
The lazy sunshine makes us unable to help but slow down and want to stay in the city to basking in the sun. Ever since, and a mad shot, recorded the warm sun belonging to Shanxi.

Jincheng: Taste the Chinese civilization
Jincheng is located in the southeastern part of Shanxi Province, bordering on the Jin and Yu provinces. It has been a battleground for military strategists since ancient times.

Huangcheng Xiangfu: the home of the first cultural giant in the north
When I was young, I was very interested in the Kangxi dictionary because my grandfather liked to study text. This set of books has made me interested in the Imperial City, because the former residence of the general reading officer of the Kangxi Dictionary, Chen Tingjing, is the Imperial City. Chen Tingjing is a lecturer of the Emperor Kangxi for thirty-five years. The Emperor Chengxiang, where he lived, is a rare castle-style official residence complex of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. He was praised by experts as “the first cultural giant in northern China.” “.
Huangcheng Xiangfu can be said to be one of the most popular places I want to visit in Jincheng! Huangcheng Xiangfu is a bureaucratic residence complex built in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The inner city is Chen Tingjing’s uncle Chen Changyan. He was built in the 6th year of Ming Chongzhen (1633) to avoid war. The outer city was completed in Kangxi forty-two years (1703). year). In the 260 years from the Ming Xiaozong to the Qing Emperor Qianlong, a total of 41 tribute students, 19 people, and 9 people in the Jinshi, 6 people into the Hanlin, can be described as mass production officials. Originally not called the Imperial City, the Imperial City Xiangfu was formerly known as “Zhongdaozhuang”. Later, because Emperor Kangxi stayed here twice, it was named “Imperial City”.
The Yushu Building was built in the 53rd year of Qing Emperor Kangxi (1714) and was named after the Emperor Kangxi Emperor’s Royal Book. The “Nantingshan Village” plaque and the “Spring Return to the arbor, the autumn to the yellow flowers and the evening scent” is the title of Emperor Kangxi in his later years for Chen Tingjing. It is a full affirmation and high praise for Chen Tingjing’s outstanding achievements and the evening festival.
Passing through the Yushulou, you entered the Imperial City Xiangfu, and the stone archway appeared in front of you. This stone archway was built in the 38th year of Emperor Kangxi (1699). It was built by Chen Tingjing when he was officially in charge of the Ministry of Education. The whole archway has four pillars and three doors, which are tall and majestic and magnificent. The square is engraved with dragons and phoenixes, and the base is surrounded by beasts. The official records and fame of the five generations of the Chen family are detailed in the above, which is a true evidence of the development of the Chen family. A closer look reveals that the shape of the stone lion above is very flexible, so I can’t help but want to shoot it.
Then we went into the university, which is also known as the Xiangfuyuan. It was built in the last years of the Ming Dynasty and was rebuilt from the early Qing Dynasty to the reign of Emperor Kangxi in the forty-two years (1703). The entire building layout is the front hall, the East College, the West Garden, the Miss Courtyard, and the Guanjiayuan. The welcoming hall of the hospital’s welcoming hall “Dian Han Tang” was awarded by Emperor Kangxi for the award of Chen Tingjing.
Emperor Kangxi had stayed here twice and stayed here. This was the room where the emperor lived.
The Miss House is the place where Miss Chen’s Ms. Zhong and her maids live. The courtyard is connected to the West Garden and is dedicated to the ladies’ paintings.Play the piano. The roof form of the courtyard is made up of coupons, and the style is unique. The house is low, which fully demonstrates that the Chen family respects the feudal ritual of “male and female”.
Then we went to the wall and came to Wenchang Pavilion. Wenchang Pavilion is dedicated to Wenchang Emperor, Wenchang Emperor is the god of the ancient Chinese myths and legends who dominated the literary martial arts. When the Chen family built the inner city, they built the Wenchang Pavilion in the dangerous position of the city wall and dedicated it to the “Wenchang Emperor”. Later, the talents came forth in large numbers, and the branch was flourishing. It was called “the first cultural family in northern China”.
Appreciating the entire Imperial City on the wall, it is magnificent.
The Tibetan Soldier’s Cave is a tunnel for Tibetans or widowers in the wartime period, with a total of 125 floors. The holes are either connected or not connected, or connected by three or five. There are dark passages between the floors, which can be directly connected to the city. The highest level is built inside the city wall, and the blasthole is facing the outside of the city. It can launch firearms and observe the enemy.
The river is more than 30 meters high and is the tallest building in the Imperial City. Such a tall building, despite more than four hundred years of vicissitudes of life, still stands tall, still majestic, can be described as a miracle in the history of Ming and Qing Dynasties.
The Heshan Building was built in Ming Chongzhen for five years (1632) and is a fortification of the Chen family for war. There are windows on the third floor of Heshan Building. The stone gates entering the fortress are suspended above the second floor and communicate with the ground through the suspension bridge. The top of the river and the roof of the building has a cornice and a tower, which is convenient for watching the enemy and defending the castle. The living facilities in the Heshan Building are readily available, and a large amount of food is also stored to cope with the possible long-term siege. There were 800 people in the building who took refuge here and there was no harm.
The top floor of the Heshan Building is a perfect location to see the panoramic view of the Imperial City.
The Chinese Dictionary Museum is a historical process and its regularity for exploring the emergence, development and evolution of Chinese dictionary culture. It displays the main dictionary works of the past generations represented by the Kangxi Dictionary and the cultural information contained in it, and collects various forms of Chinese history. The dictionary is the only dictionary museum in China.
The Chen Ancestral Hall is the temple of the Chen family dedicated to the ancestors of the ancestors. It was built in the Jiajing Period of the Ming Dynasty. The structure is two courtyards, the former is the ancestral temple, and the later is the Pantheon. The younger generation of Chen built the ancestral hall on the central axis of the city. In addition to expressing the reverence of the ancestors, he also hoped that the ancestors would be able to bless the future generations and bless the family’s prosperity and prosperity forever.
The buildings in the Imperial City are far more than the ones described above, and you need to go to see them. In addition to the building, there are performances to watch in the scenic area. Every day at 09:30 in the morning, there will be a “large-scale opening ceremony” performance on the scenic spot of the Imperial City Xiangfu. When Emperor Kangxi visited, Chen Tingjing presented the Kangxi Dictionary, and the emperor awarded him the “Nantingshan Village” plaque. After watching the performance, he could appreciate the grandeur of the time.
Attach some time for some performances, and pay attention to arrange time to watch. “Imperial City Xiangfu Eight-tone Club”, Tibetan soldiers hole platform, 10:30, 11:20, 14:00, 15:00, 16:00. “The Emperor’s Palace and the Bells and Dances”, the Imperial City Xianglin Courtyard, 10:30 to 11:30, 13:30 to 17:00. “I came from the Han Dynasty” live experience drama, 12:30, 14:00, 15:30.

After visiting the Imperial City, we went to the ancient cultural street at the exit of the scenic spot. Ancient Culture Street is a powerful witness to the early commercial prosperity of Huangcheng Xiangfu. It covers an area of nearly 10,000 square meters and is still the commercial and shopping district of Huangcheng Xiangfu. The quality of the business here is excellent and cheap, and the management is orderly. It is an ideal place for tourists to dine and shop.

Xiangfu Manor: the paradise next to Xiangfu
Since we purchased the package, after visiting the Imperial City, we took the free shuttle bus to the Xiangfu Manor. Xiangfu Manor is one of the main attractions of Huangcheng Xiangfu Scenic Spot. It is the Huangcheng Village “underground, black and green”. After the transformation and development of Huangcheng Xiangfu, it was successfully developed on the site of Chen’s Manor. A natural landscape.

In the Imperial City, we appreciate the ancient architecture, reading the history, and in the Xiangfu Manor we embrace nature and relax. It is a good experience to combine the two together!

It is made with fresh pork liver and seasoning, wrapped with flower oil, and dried, steamed and fried to achieve a soft yellow sauce. Its characteristic is that the outer coke is crisp, the taste is delicious, the wine is good, the hot food is not greasy.

When they eat glutinous rice cakes, they are wrapped in waxy meat. The oil is savory and fragrant. The taste is soft, not crispy, delicious, and endless.
I used to think that the cake was Taiwanese. I didn’t expect Shanxi to have a cake. As for which one is, I have no way to study it. The two are similar and the taste is basically the same. The freshly baked hand-picked cake is a thousand layers, thin as paper, crisp and tender outside, and fragrant.
Gourmet: not just face
Shanxi is rich in food, so there are many foods. When it comes to Shanxi cuisine, our first reaction is pasta, and then think about vinegar, but far more than that.

Travel is fun, but a good trip is inseparable from the pre-prepared homework, so I will give you some travel tips. In the previous text, information about eating and drinking has been basically introduced, so let’s talk about traffic.
This trip is from Taiyuan and Jincheng is over. The traffic in Taiyuan is very developed. You can arrive in Taiyuan by plane or train.
After that, I suggest you rent a car to play becauseMost of the scenic spots are not in the urban area, and self-driving is the best choice, which can greatly improve the comfort. Of course, if you don’t like to drive, don’t worry. The scenic spots you visited this time are very mature scenic spots, and public transportation is very convenient.
The journey ended in Jincheng, but the traffic in Jincheng is not very convenient. The train only has ordinary trains. Therefore, it is recommended that you take a bus to Zhengzhou, which is very close to Zhengzhou and takes about two and a half hours. After arriving in Zhengzhou, it is very convenient whether you are taking the high-speed rail or the plane.
