The Qingmingqiao Historical and Cultural District, also known as the Nanchang Street District, was built on the canal and was built by the water. The Qingming Bridge is a single-hole stone arch bridge that spans the canal like a crescent moon. It is the largest and most intact single-hole stone arch bridge on the ancient canal of Wuxi. It was built in the Ming Dynasty and has four years. The history of more than 100 years is the symbol of the history of the ancient canal, the symbol of prosperity, and the epitome of culture. Whether it is a tourist who visits here, a resident who lives in the surrounding area, or a citizen who is used to walking around here, they have walked through the Qingming Bridge and have stayed on the bridge and took a photo.
Wuxi is the only city that passes through the city on the Grand Canal. The ancient canal has left a section of Canal Edition and Jiangnan Water Lane in the historical and cultural district of Qingming Bridge. In the old days, Wuxi people lived by the river and lived around the pier. Therefore, there were brick piers, rice piers, silk piers, cloth piers and book piers. On both sides of the canal, there are powder walls and slabs of stone, which are row upon row, and the piers are stoned, and they are patchwork, and the water features of Jiangnans Peoples Nesting River are constructed.
The fog outside this accident has put a veil on the ancient canal of Wuxi. The hustle and bustle of the world has faded away from the modern high-rise buildings in the distance. The big trees, roofs and hovering birds of the old city pulled me back to the old times and the old things in the south of the canal.
The ancient Wuxi canal at night is totally different from the daytime, and under the neon lights, it is more modern. The
Wuxi Ancient Canal has a history of more than 2,500 years. It is a section of the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal. It is connected to the Yangtze River in the north and Taihu Lake in the south. It is more than 40 kilometers long and runs through Wuxi City.
This long river water condenses the history of Wuxi's thousands of years of ups and downs, and is also intertwined with the simple folk customs of the water town.
The scenery that is seen from the Qingming Bridge is also the best angle to see the life paintings of the Jiangnan water town.
The ancient canal in the night, although no longer heard the sound of the sound of water, but the bustling scene of the Jiangnan Water Lane is still the same.
