Geographic location

Ba Badu Town is located at the border of Zhejiang and Fujian provinces, with convenient transportation and 205 National Road passing through the town. The town has an area of ​​66.7 square kilometers and a population of 10,876. Compared with famous ancient towns such as Zhouzhuang, Tongli and Wuzhen, it is still hidden in the mountains. It has a completely different style from those of the ancient towns in the south of the Yangtze River, and even has some mystery. More than 1100 years ago, Huang Chao swayed down the south and opened a Xianxia ancient road in the mountains between Zhejiang and Fujian. From then on, the eight dynasties that were surrounded by arches and mountains were the places where the soldiers of the dynasties camped. The millennium road, which was originally mainly a military function, gradually became a business travel route in the Qing Dynasty. The vessels on the Qiantang River were loaded with cloth and daily necessities from Jiang and Zhejiang to the Qinghu Wharf of Jiangshan, and then transferred to the land. The shoulders of the porter’s shoulders are picked and smashed. The native products from the hustle and bustle will also be shipped to Qinghu for shipment to Jinhuo and Shanghai. As the first stop of transit of goods in the past, Yuba is a must-have transportation hub and has quickly become the most prosperous commercial port on the border of the three provinces. In its heyday, the shops and restaurants of the commercial shops were covered with the whole cobblestone paved streets. The day-to-day shoulders, the night breaks merchants, and the south to the north every day, bustling, rich and lively for hundreds of years.

There are many well-preserved ancient buildings in the Ming and Qing Dynasties in the township, which are provincial-level historical and cultural reserves. In 2007, Yuba was listed as a famous historical and cultural town in China; in 2008, it was named the hometown of Chinese folk culture and art (Songs). The rich and colorful human landscape, the simple and rich folk customs, and the unique and rich cultural accumulation make the simple and elegant Qiangdu Town look strange in the encirclement of modern civilization.

Introduction to scenic area

It is an ancient town with a distance of 70 kilometers from the county seat of Jiangshan City. The town has more than 800 households with more than 4,000 people. In the fourth year of Xi Ning in the Northern Song Dynasty (1071), Jiangshan was set up forty-four. It is ranked No. 8 in this place. It has been named as the Eight-Eight Capital and has a history of more than 900 years. Due to the lack of war in history, the ancient buildings in the town are still in the same style and are well preserved. According to statistics, there are 36 ancient buildings and halls in the Ming and Qing Dynasties with complete and large-scale buildings. The public buildings include Confucius Temple, Dawang Temple, Wenchang Pavilion, Wanshou Palace, Zhenwu Zhou, Zhongyi Temple, Guanyin Pavilion, Laojiamen, Xinxingshe, etc. 11 buildings. Among the many temples, temples, palaces and temples, the Dawang Temple is the largest, and the Confucius Temple is the most magnificent. Confucius Temple was built in Xuantong Period and covers an area of ​​more than 1,500 square meters. The overall layout along the central axis is the three-in-three patios, the main entrance, the front hall, the patio, the main hall, the patio and the dormitory. In terms of structure, the Ming Dynasty is a beam-lifting type, and the side is a bucket-type. The main hall is a two-story double-stayed hilltop pavilion, which is very tall and majestic. The building is characterized by exquisite wood carving art and rich paintings. All the beams, urns, ridges and ceilings are painted with landscapes, characters and dragons, phoenixes, flowers, birds and other paintings, geometric figures and beef legs. Wood components such as fins, window sashes, and sashes are all embossed or hollowed out. The subject matter is rich and the image is extremely vivid. It is like a treasure house of art.

At the entrance of Zhennan Village, there is a semi-circular single-hole stone arch bridge across the Fengxi River. There are nine bridge pavilions on the bridge, and the middle is the top of the mountain. It was built in the 17th year of the Guangxu reign (1891) and is the only ancient bridge in the west of Zhejiang with an ancient bridge pavilion.

The ancient houses in the town are not only numerous, but also well preserved, and its architectural style is very different from that of other houses. The layout is different from the topography, the environment, and the roadway. The basic structure of the dwellings is a flat rectangular courtyard house, two into one patio, and three halls with two patios. The halls in the rooms are self-contained. The patterns on the doors and windows are rare. The houses are all stone structures. Rarely seen in brick carvings, mostly composed of exquisite wood carving components, the pavilion-style four-column and third-floor form, unique style.

In the old town, there are four gates in the east, west, south and north. Today, there is only one side of the town’s stone door. The book has “Fengxi Lock Key”. A street runs in parallel with the creek and is 1 km long from north to south. Both sides are mostly two-story shop workshops, which basically maintain the style of the 19th century market town.

The buildings of Ba Badu Town are built on both sides of the ancient road and are up to 1 km long. The north is Yuli Street, which is mainly residential; the south is Fengxi Street, which is mainly based on business. The ancient town was in its peak in the Qing Dynasty, with more than 50 Guangfanpu hotels and more than 40 wholesalers of North and South grocery. More striking, however, is the public buildings such as bridges, temples, and pavilions. Shui On Bridge, a bridge across the Maple Creek, in the morning mist and the sunset, showing different sides, actually murdered us a lot of film. The people who worked for a day and the tired and tired children rested in the covered bridge, adding a little bit to the beauty. Fengxi Bridge is a typical stone arch bridge structure, which constitutes a faint and lyrical Chinese painting with the surrounding Mercury Temple. The rest of the original name such as Huaqiao is only empty, and the structure of the original bridge no longer exists.

The Great King Temple in the sunset is the most beautiful. There are golden rice fields in front of the pavement. After the blue sky and blue sky as a barrier, the powder wall and the tile are shining in the sunlight, which makes me daze to turn around and overlook the town of Ba Ba Du, he lies In the embrace of the Xianxia Mountains, the smoke from the roofs scattered in the evening glow.

There are two Wenchang Pavilions in size, Dawenchang Pavilion in the town of Beitou, and Xiaowenchang Pavilion in the south of the town. The grandeur and sophistication of the two buildings is unmatched in the local area. Wenchang Pavilion is generally only available in the county, and is dedicated to Wenchangdi and Kuixing. Although all of them are relying on business to get rich, they still can’t get rid of the complex of “learning and being good”. Their wishes and dreams have already flown out of the mountains and flew to distant Kyoto. At the same time, they also left more than 300 paintings in the Liang, Chang, and algae wells of Dawenchang Pavilion, using “cantilever thorns” and “clothing back to the countryside” to inspire future generations.

The big towns in the ancient town are Cao, Jiang, Yang and Jin. They lived around the clan and still have 36 complete ancient residential buildings. Standing on the old street, the most distinctive feature is the threshold of every household. Most of the thresholds are pavilion-style, with four pillars and three floors consisting of beams, gongs, gongs, observation panels and vertical curtains. Each part has fine wood carvings, and the subject matter is mostly mascots such as Fu Lu Shou, He He Er Xian. This wooden threshold has a sharp contrast with the brick-and-mortem gates in other parts of the south of the Yangtze River, making people walk on this old street, all attracted by this scenery. Looking at this emblem-style horse head wall, the ridge of the Zhejiang style, the squatting raft, the squatting earthen wall, the richness of its connotation is enough to make the architects marvel.

Eight ancient capitals

Many people are wondering how this ancient town is called “Eight Eight”. Of course, it did not call this name before, and it was called “Taocheng” in ancient times. During the Song Dynasty, the capital was set up below the township. Jiangshan was set up forty-four, and Daocheng was twenty-eight, and the name has been followed since then. In Jiangshan City, the names of Sidu, Badu, Qiqidu and Qiji are still preserved.

“Hundred family names”

Due to the danger of the terrain, it is easy to defend and difficult to attack. The Hanwu Emperor feared that once the rebellion was difficult to clean up, the local villagers would be taken to other places and become a place where “there are no traces of people and no lanes.” Since the end of the Tang Dynasty, the Huangchao Uprising Army has spent two years opening up the Xianxia Ancient Road. After getting through the traffic of the three provinces, it is not only a military rush. It’s just a day from Zhejiang, or from Zhejiang, and it’s just a day when it’s over. The service industry of business travel has prospered. When the Qing Dynasty was unified for a long time, and the four sides were closely guarded, it was rarely affected by the war, and the business flourished. At the peak, there were thousands of flats carrying goods every day. Foreign merchants, miscellaneous husbands, fallen defeated soldiers, retired officers and men, have settled here. Yuba is actually the only immigrant ancient town that has found more than one hundred surnames. Large family members have a genealogy and know where their ancestors came from.

“Four big families”

The “four big families” of Cao, Yang, Jiang and Jin in the town were famous at the end of the Qing Dynasty and the early Republic of China. Caojia mainly manages the field and opens the South goods store and cloth shop; Yang family manages from Zhushan to papermaking, and later turns into a north-south cargo transaction; Jiang family from the operation of oil materials to the opening of the cloth; Jinjia from business to Mainly based on rent collection and farming. The vast majority of the 36 ancient buildings protected by the ancient town are the houses of the “four big families”.

Nine dialects

The residents of Yubadu are mainly based on immigrants from all over the country, and naturally bring local dialects. The nine different dialects of Zhejiang, Fujian, Weibei, and Huizhou are mainly preserved. The dialects of small areas are only common to a few households. Very strange. Yubadu became the land of Xianxiaguan and Fengling Guanshou Army. At most, there were more than 1,500 horsemen, no less than the residents at that time. So many people and civilians from all over the world live in the town, and the language is inconvenient. In the Manchu military camp, it is not allowed to speak in tongues and force the implementation of so-called Mandarin. The defenders also forced the local residents to use the Manchu Mandarin in the Eighths of the Eighth. The merchants also took the initiative to learn the Mandarin in order to greet this big client, but they all brought a bit of a southward tone. It is said that when the young people in the town participated in the assembly of the volunteers in Dandong, they found that the local dialect was the same as the dialect of the hometown. In fact, the official language of Manchu has an external accent, and the official language of the Eight Diagrams is derived from the lingua franca of the defending army. It’s no surprise that why all of them are talking about Mandarin. However, the local language of the local residents, such as Jiangshan, is still preserved, and they will never be assimilated by the forced Manchurian official.

The unique customs of the North and the South, the customs and habits of the Eighth Old Street blended with the folk customs of various places. After several hundred years of mutual assimilation and sublation, they formed distinctive characteristics. For example, weddings and funerals, relatives and friends come to congratulate the meal, each owner only receives a few yuan of gift money, more than one yuan must be returned. When the girl is married, she must hang the pig’s leg from the man’s door and insert a knife to symbolize the marriage relationship. Folk songs, paper-cuts, puppets, stilts, carols, dragon lanterns, lion dances, dry boats, and other traditional North and South cultures are very popular here. Because the ancient officers and men are from the north and southwest, some folk games also carry traces of recreational activities in the northern ice movement or Yunguichuan.

The most distinctive feature of the house is the handling of the big station and the gate building. The inward-looking spatial layout of the house makes the exterior a tall wall.

The lower sides of the ridge are short corrugated, dripping water from the ditch head, and everything is available. This layered gable is locally called {Sanhua Gable} or {Five Flower Gable}.
