Saying "Winter practice three nine, summer practice three volts." 35 degrees high temperature is still walking in the hot sun, that is true love. Zhenjiang, which was originally run by the summer lotus of Jinshan Temple (the lotus and Jinhu Lake trails of Jinshan Lake are really good), but the result is a lot of time spent in Xijindu, not far from Jinshan Temple. In Xijindu, you can walk through the hustle and bustle, taste the stone plate road, the Qingwa house, and the combination of the high-rise pavilion and the tower to convey the charm of the traditional building group; you can also go to the Garlic, see the Yangtze River to the east, and the wind and the sea; Of course, all kinds of restaurants and tea shops all over the West Jindu also provide the convenience of rest and strength for the tired passengers under the scorching sun.
The topic is a little farther away. Daxi Road, which connects to the entrance of Xijindu Small Dock Street, is the first asphalt road in Jiangsu. The roadside road is very tall and tall. In the long river where transportation is gradually eliminated by the waterway, Xijindu, which relies on the Yangtze River, can only retain the faint charm of the past.
"Jingkou Guazhou Yishui, Zhongshan is only a few mountains. The spring breeze is on the south bank of the Lujiang River. When the moon is shining according to me." When Wang Anshi wrote this poem, he set off from Xijin Ferry. Xijindu is a ferry. Located in the west of Zhenjiang City, Yuntai Mountain is built on the broken mountain plank road. There are many cultural relics and historic sites. As early as in the Eastern Jin Dynasty, there were many immigrants who came ashore from here. In the Song Dynasty, it was the anti-gold front. Today's Xijindu is not only visited in ancient times, but also has many fashion storefront merchants.
Along the stone ladder, you can reach the Xijindu Old Street. There is a Zhaoguan Stone Tower built in the Yuan Dynasty. This is a street stone tower. According to Buddhism, the tower is a Buddha, so we pass the vouchers under the tower to be the Buddha. Xijindu is not only a place where historical sites are concentrated, but also has a quite foreign style. The British Consulate in Zhenjiang is also located in Xijindu. During the three years of Qing Tongzhi (1864), the British built the British Consulate here.
As an ancient town formed by Xijindu as a historical ancient ferry on the south bank of the Yangtze River in Jiangsu, there are too many stories. Going to Xijindu to inquire about some historical stories of the year, why is it also?
Since the Tang Dynasty, Zhenjiang has been a heavy town of traffic and transportation, with a throat. Xijindu was the only ferry crossing from Zhenjiang to Jiangbei at that time. It has an extremely important strategic position and has been a battleground for the military since the Three Kingdoms. That is to say, at least Xijindu is a famous Yangtze River ferry from the Three Kingdoms Period. Now it has become a leisure ancient town. The ancient town is not big but has a long history. The 100-year-old Zhaoguan Ancient Pagoda, Guanyin Cave and the former British Consulate (now the Zhenjiang Museum) ). . . . . . Various cultures meet here. The characteristic inn and creative shops, century-old shops and gourmet western foods have formed a multi-mixed state.
The journey that can be completed in 2 hours is always in the lingering round trip. Walking in the bluestone lane in the sunshine, walking on the stone road, looking up at the green wall and the carved beams and columns, calm down and taste a bowl of local special pot cover, such as sitting in the corner of the bar at night and listening to the folk songs that live here. What is the mood!
Xijindu Ancient Street is a place with a lot of character; it is full of old buildings with a richly historic feel. As you stroll through this ancient mountainside street, you will experience the face of the old city of Zhenjiang and sample its delicious “pot cover noodles.” The night-time scenery is beautiful. There are few people and it is very quiet. Staying at a youth hostel here is a unique experience.
