Very good, good place, the environment is very good
"Tan-ling was sitting in a sedan chair carried by sixteen peasants, and Kong was riding a horse," said Robby Euensen, an American biography of the three Song sisters. "But to the great surprise of the bride, at the end of the hard journey, She found the most extravagant life she had ever known...because some of the most important bankers lived in Taigu, which is often called 'Wall Street in China'. So the Taigu still occupied a very important position in China's financial circles during the Republic of China. In fact, as early as the 19th century, in Jinzhong, Luliang area spread the ballad: "Jintai Valley, Yinju County, can not finish rice noodles Yuci County." In Jinzhong area, Jinshang Yunhe, the top of the list. Today, in the Jinzhong tourist circle, which is the main culture of Jinshang, Taigu seems to be falling. When I walk into the old city (Taigu Jinzhong), I still feel the old "Wall Street of China" style. The layout of the ancient city is square, the road is flat and the street is almost vertically crossed, following the ancient system, can not walk a few steps to see a four-sided high walled compound, a color of the green courtyard wall, but the Jin merchants are not the same family legend. The main attractions currently being developed in Taigu Old Town are the Four Views Street, which is the Chinese Wall Street, the Taigu County Jinshang Museum, Kong Xiangxi House, the Drum Tower (Figure 1) and the White Tower (see previous travel photos). Located in the center of the old city cross street, built in the Ming Wanli 43 years (1615), the Qing Kangxi, Qianlong years have repaired. Drum tower built on a square brick base, the base height of about 8 meters, cross four door-holes, can be connected to the county east and west north and south. East is "watching the elephant", south is "Yifeng", west is "Yao", north is "Gongchen". Drum Tower for the second floor triple dormitory-style wooden structure, 20 meters high. The second floor, the face wide, deep all three, four-sided doors, each floor is set up a corridor. The east of the building has stairs to reach the second floor. 10 yuan to the building. Kong Xiangxi's former residence is the largest and most complete house in Taigu City with the middle Qing Dynasty architecture. Tickets: 45 yuan. Jinshang Museum is located in the old house opposite the former residence of Kong Xiangxi. The private collector founded it. He did not go in and did not find the ticket price. It is free to see a bit. The White Tower is in the Infinity Temple, and the detailed guide is before the travel photo. Small Tips: The ancient city can be driven, the road is narrow, and it is a one-way line. There seems to be only a small parking lot on the west side of the Infinity Temple.
