Take a taxi to get there. It is well worth it. It is the oldest (11th century) port stone beam bridge in China. Amazing features and technology. The foundation is reinforced by breeding oysters!

It might looks just a bridge but if you read something about it before going there you will understand the meaning and its importance for Chinese people. Go there by taxy and good luck to find an another taxy at the end of the bridge (you can either get on a public bus or keep on walking in very traditional... More

This is probably the oldest and best maintained bridge of ancient China. The view around this bridge was spectacular, especially before sunset and during sunset. You can see some locals pulling their harvest from the fishing boat if you are lucky.

The bridge is built with many long and thick slabs of stones spanning over the river. Triangular slabs of stones were placed on one side of the bridge pointing against the flow of water in order to divert and lessen the impact of the tides. There are a temple at each end of the bridge, one very elaborate and one... More

Ive visited (and reviewed) many bridges in the past before, but finally here's one that was actually worth visiting. This ancient bridge is a marvel of traditional architectural skill, a testament to which is the condition in which it remains today. If you have an interest in traditional Chinese architecture and are in the area, then the luoyang bridge is... More

Went to the granite bridge as it was part of my group tour itinerary. It was a short visit and there was not enough time to walk to the other end. At one end, there was a giant statue of the governor who commissioned the bridge. I attach some pics taken.

An example of China's ingenuity in engineering...and reflecting the masonry industry in nearby Nai'an and Chongwu towns. Built in 1057 still standing proud. Entirely of stone except for clever butterfly-shaped wedges which have held the stones together for 2,000 years. The pillar-bases are shaped as boat prows so that tremendous tidal currents flow harmlessly by... and live oysters were placed... More
