"Chaozhou Guangji Bridge, a bridge with a story" Guangji Bridge, located outside the east gate of Chaozhou City, is named China’s four major ancient bridges together with Zhaozhou Bridge, Luoyang Bridge and Lugou Bridge with its unique style of "18 shuttle boats and 24 continents". It was once known as the famous bridge expert Mao Yi Promoted as "the earliest open-close bridge in the world". Guangji Bridge, the ancient name: Xiangzi Bridge. The bridge is more than 500 meters long, including 13 piers on the east bank and 11 piers on the west bank. Due to "the turbulence in the middle current is extremely deep, the Xiangzi Bridge cannot be used as a pier", only 18 shuttle boats can be used to form a horizontal line in the middle, which are connected by iron cables to form a floating bridge. Every morning, 18 shuttle boats join up in a row for pedestrians to pass through. In the evening, the shuttle boats towed away, and the upstream and downstream ships pass through the middle. Each pier of Guangji Bridge has a history of hundreds of years. It lasted more than 300 years from the completion of the first pier in the Song Dynasty to the formation of the current pattern. In the case of backward productivity in ancient times, the difficulty of building such a bridge on the big river is beyond people's imagination. Therefore, Chaozhou folks have spread many legends of "immortal Buddha building bridges". Existing Han Yu’s grand-nephew Han Xiangzi built a section of the bridge to the east, and asked the Eight Immortals to help. There is also a story about the Guangji monk who built a section of the bridge in the southwest and invited the eighteen arhats to help. Therefore, in order to commemorate the achievements of the immortals and Buddhas in building the bridge, they called this bridge both "Xiangzi Bridge" and "Guangji Bridge". This is the origin of the name of Guangji Bridge. When you come to Chaozhou, you must go to the Guangji Bridge in Chaozhou and feel the glorious past recorded here.
