It was even selected a few years earlier than the famous Zheng Guoqu and Dujiangyan. The entire water conservancy project has set two “world’s best”, namely, the world’s earliest arched dam and the world’s earliest overpass. Together with related ancient roads, inscriptions, buildings, etc., they are both precious and important cultural relics. Study precious materials of ancient water conservancy projects in my country. Since we talked about Tongji Weir, Yantou Village, a thousand-year-old village built around the weir, naturally has to be mentioned. It is named after the weir and is the core area of ​​the ancient weir painting village landscape. Not only is the historical environment long and unique, but the natural scenery is also extremely beautiful. The neatly arranged courtyard courtyard and the exquisitely carved horse head wall show an antique charm against the backdrop of the towering ancient weir. It is one of the birthplaces of the famous “Barbizon Oil Painting” and the creative base of the hometown of Chinese photography. Dagangtou Village, the “land of painting” across the river, has small bridges and flowing water, stone alleys, ancient houses and ancient streets, as well as Pinghu Qiuyue, Lanyan Misty, and Lonely Fishing Boat. The ancient camphor tree of thousands of years old, lush and luxuriant, witnessed the long history of the ancient village, the century-old streets full of fireworks, gentle and poetic, isolated from the chaos and hustle and bustle. There is no extreme prosperity here, only the drunk years and the intoxicating warm wind. Wandering between the ancient villages, whether it is the scene or the painter, it is the most beautiful scenery in the ancient town.
