It is said that this is the last section of the Ming and Qing Dynasty wall that has been preserved in the old Shanghai county. After the victory of the 1911 Revolution, in order to expand the urban area, Shanghai citizens tore off the wall and turned the original wall into a ring road. The reason why this wall was retained was that it became a gable and could not be picked up.
Unexpectedly, I had no intention of seeing the Grand Territory Cabinet here in the old city. As a Shanghainese, it is the first time to know such a place. It seems that propaganda is not enough. The wall is antique and well restored. It feels relaxed and happy when seen from afar. Although there is only a little space, it still tastes good.
Concession culture is very popular in Shanghai. It seems that Shanghai is such a colony-rich place. Fortunately, there is the Great Territory Pavilion. Although only a little old city wall has been retained, there is still a little Chinese traditional culture roots in the center of Shanghai. The wall is old, as can be seen from the bricks. The inscription of "Xinyi Qianqiu" is also full of ancient meanings. The statues in Guandi Temple are bright in color, but the popularity is little known.
I always thought there was no wall in Shanghai, but I didn't find many more sections until I read Mr. Chen Yu's microblog. This section is very short, but it feels strange, but it has to be said that the Bund's classic buildings and Shanghai are better suited. The feeling of the ancient city wall is more suitable for Xi'an and Nanjing.
Don't make a mistake about this place and the nearby Baiyun View. I found it around the road, the old wall of Shanghai. Not many visitors can take a leisurely look. There are two stories. The bricks on the wall have been felt for some years. On the first floor, there is an exhibition on the vicissitudes of the old city of Shanghai, which is helpful to understand history. On the second floor, the Guandi Temple is worshiped.
Should be a cultural relic protection unit, the ancient city wall is still well preserved, suitable for photography.
