Older than Tiananmen

This Ming Dynasty tower pre-dates Tiananmen in Beijing by several decades. Looks stunning at night, with the lighting effect. Don't expect any peacefulness, though, as it is a... read more

Local people feathering here, dancing traditionally, chatting all interesting staff they saw, and see what others were doing. You may also join them to dance, they would show you how. Photographs can go there to take some pics. 拥有百年历史,经历战乱不倒,其大小可称得上小天安门。 当地群众聚集在那里唱歌跳舞,很有民俗风味。可以加入他们,他们会很高兴,也会教你如何跳

This Ming Dynasty tower pre-dates Tiananmen in Beijing by several decades. Looks stunning at night, with the lighting effect. Don't expect any peacefulness, though, as it is a major traffic circle.

The Arch's significance to Jianshui is the same as that of Tiananmen to Beijing. “The Miniature Tiananmen”, is also a symbol of this ancient military town. While we did not go up to the Arch, the square in front of it makes for an interesting spot to watch people and enjoy the customary folk dancing in the evening. With each... More

This is part of the East Gate complex. Inside there's a museum which is worth a look if you are interested in Jianshui pottery. The clay here is regionally famous for making teapots and vases. It's second only to what one finds in Yixing (Jiangsu Province.)
