Trip Moments

Baihou Ancient Town in Dapu, Meizhou, Guangdong Province is a beautiful ancient town with hidden stories. The buildings in the ancient town combine Hakka, Western and other architectural styles. The architectural style of Jiangnan Huipai can be seen in the details of some thresholds. Baihou Ancient Town is one of the most ancient towns in Lingdong, and even the whole of Guangdong. In the Ming and Qing Dynasties, there were 5 Hanlin, 23 Jinshi and 134 Wenwu. "The same hall seven Kui", "the same list of three Jinshi", "one belly three Hanlin" is a legendary story. Baihou Ancient Town was born to the sea in the late Qing Dynasty and the early Republic of China. This is the reason why a large number of Chinese and Western architectures coexist harmoniously in the ancient town. The merchant who sent the goods, the first thing to do when returning to his hometown is to build a road and build a large mansion. Hakkas are mostly immigrants from the Central Plains. The ancient style still exists, and the architectural style of the courtyard is mostly elegant. From the carvings of the windows, screens and beams, you can see the elegance of the host family. The carvings on the roof are vivid and amazing! Baihou Ancient Town is a relatively complete building with Haiyuan Building, Zhaoqing Hall and Qinanxuan. Each building has a different style. The ancient ancestral hall, the mottled old wall, the western-style arcade, the exquisite wood carvings, the wall decorations... Each building has souls, and each building is leisurely telling the past. Baihou Ancient Town is one of the roots of Hakka culture. From Tangshan to Nanyang, the story has continued!

There are two unique buildings in Guangdong, one is Kaiping Diaolou and the other is Hakka Enclosed House. The shape of the Hakka Enclosed House is like a bunker and a bird's nest. This kind of building is more in Meizhou. There are several places in Mei Hakka House, the most representative of which is Tai'an Building in Dapu County. This building was built in the 28th year of Qing Emperor Qianlong. It has a history of more than 250 years and can be preserved. Not easy, which also shows the rigor of ancient architecture. Other Hakka enclosures are usually round, while Tai'an is square. The main building materials are stone, wood and brick. Because the outer wall of the building is a stone wall, this building is also called a stone building. Tai'an Building is currently a key cultural relics protection unit. It is also a cultural tourism attraction developed by Dapu County. It is managed by a dedicated person and is well protected in all aspects. Visitors can not only walk on the ground floor, but also climb down the stairs. The second and third floors are panoramic views of God's vision. Taian Building has only one gate for access. If the gate is closed, outsiders cannot enter. The windows of the whole building are very small, which is mainly for the purpose of preventing thieves and preventing problems. Because the wall is thick and strong, the Taian Building has good wind, waterproof and shockproof performance. On the Taian Building, every picture you see in front of you is full of chronology, especially the aging window, as if you are silently telling history. There are more than 200 rooms in the entire Tai'an Building. Currently, only a few old people and children live in it. Most of the young people go out to make a living, or move to a more comfortable modern building.

When it comes to surrounding houses and earth buildings, many people think of Yongding and Nanjing in Fujian for the first time. In fact, Meizhou, which is a source of Hakka, also hides many well-preserved houses. The level of sophistication is no less than the former two. Tai'an Building, located in Longgang Village, Hutun Town, Dapu County is a classic representative of Meizhou's surrounding buildings. Tai'an Building was built in the 28th year of Qing Emperor Qianlong (AD 1764) and has a history of 253 years. The Fangshiweiwu building, which is extremely rare in the world, is called the Historical and Humanities Museum. Tai'an Building is a masonry structure, sitting northeast to southwest, 49 meters long, 52.6 meters wide, 11 meters high, divided into three floors. The housing is distributed in an orderly manner along the direction of the enclosure. Walking house is generally windproof, waterproof, shockproof and fireproof. Most of them have remained strong for hundreds of years. Take the Tai'an Building as an example. Although it has experienced 253 spring and autumn, it does not see the traces of damage. It is a miracle in the architectural world. There is only one gate in the Tai'an Building. There are patios, wells and ancestral halls in the building. The patio can be used for daylighting and for grain storage; the well is convenient for residents to use water and, if necessary, for firefighting; the temple is the place where the ancestors are worshipped. Since Tai'an Building has only one gate, and the walls are thicker and thicker, it can be protected from moisture and heat, and can be insulated and cool. Special architectural style makes the entire Tai'an Building a solid "military fortress", easy to defend and difficult to attack, anti-theft, anti-enemy powerful. Having said that, I can't help but think of many old war scenes. At that time, Taian Building was definitely a first-class command center.
