What people are saying:

During this trip to Changsha, the hotel I chose was just near Wuyi Square. ❤️I sincerely suggest that every friend who comes to Changsha to play, if you like to be lively, you must choose a hotel near Wuyi Square, where the transportation is convenient, and it is very convenient to go to Orange Island, the museum, and the Du Fujiang Pavilion. ❗The key point is that it is very lively at night, with Huangxing Road Pedestrian Street, Pozi Street, Fire Palace, etc. Changsha has just begun to wake up after nightfall. 🍀🍀 But the attraction I want to recommend to you today is also near Wuyi Square. During the day, don’t miss it, the former residence of Jia Yi. 🍁🍁 The ancient city of Changsha, which has no history to testify, can be traced back to the Paleolithic age, which is 150,000 to 200,000 years ago. The continuous history has also created countless cultural celebrities, among which the most famous are Qu Yuan and Jia Yi. 🌮🌮Qu Yuan We all know that we must thank him for jumping on the Miluo River during our annual national holiday "Dragon Boat Festival" (this sounds strange, in fact, we are more in memory). 🌰 Another Jia Yi, a famous political commentator and writer in the early Western Han Dynasty. He and Qu Yuan were officials in the same dynasty. After Qu Yuan's death, Jia Yi wrote the famous "Diao Qu Yuan Fu". ☹️It's a pity that he died young. At the age of 33, as the wife of King Liang Huai, he died when King Liang Huai accidentally fell from a horse. Jia Yi apologized and died of depression. 🥰In spite of this, in his short life, his literary works and his views on governing the country still left precious wealth to future generations. After Jia Yi's death, the descendants kept his house, and it has been uninterrupted for more than two thousand years, and countless writers have come here to commemorate it. The location of the museum is very superior, just on Taiping Old Street, don’t worry about not finding it, because there are many signposts on Wuyi Square with signs indicating "Jia Yi's Former Residence". 🏠This is a three-entry courtyard with a small area. Under normal circumstances, a half-hour tour is enough. ☑️☑️After all, it has been more than 2,100 years since the death of Jia Yi, so there are not many authentic relics left. There are mainly two pieces. One is a well in the courtyard, which is said to be excavated by Jia Yi's parents and children, and the other is placed in the courtyard. The stone bed here has been beaten by the wind and rain of history, if you don’t explain it, you really can’t see it. ⚠️The main attractions of Jia Yi’s former residence: 1⃣️, Jia Taifu Temple-dedicated to the bronze statue of Jia Yi and his works; 2⃣️, Taifu Hall-Jia Yi's life and thought introduction; 3⃣️, Xunqiu Caotang-since the Qing Dynasty, Xunqiutang After paying tribute to Jia Yi, the literati and ink guests, where they chanted poems and made paintings, visitors also drank tea here; 4⃣️, the stele gallery-displayed in the "Ancient and Modern Celebrities Inscriptions on Jia Poems" and the inscriptions on the former residences of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. There are 21 poems chanting Jia Jia by celebrities of the past dynasties and 5 inscriptions on their former residences during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. ❗Jia Yi’s former residence strategy information: 👇Address: No. 28, Taiping Street, Tianxin District, Changsha City, Hunan Province Opening Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 9:00-16:30 (closed on Monday) 💰Tickets: free, but ID registration is required🚋 Transportation: Take No. 6, 12, 109, 112, 303, etc. and get off at Taipingjiekou Station.
