What people are saying:

The first stop of the trip to Yangzhou is the former residence of Zhu Ziqing at No. 27, Anle Lane, Guangling District. The former residence is free and open to the public, full of cultural and historical memorial value. Take the 88 bus from Yangzhou West Bus Station to Qionghuaguan. Follow the navigation and walk through the criss-crossing narrow alleys of Yangzhou’s old town. Go deeper and deeper into the streets and alleys of Yangzhou, and become more aware of the crisscrossing of time. Even if the past is not like smoke, you are still indulged in Zhu Ziqing's prose. "Back View" appeared in my mind with seven turns and eight turns, turning around, searching and asking the surrounding residents, and finally reached the former residence of Zhu Ziqing. Zhu Ziqing, a famous essayist, poet and educator in the Republic of China. Masterpieces such as "Back View" and "Moonlight in the Lotus Pond" are well-known, with beautiful and delicate text, and deep and simple feelings. Why is the life experience and former residence of this writer unexplorable and intriguing? Zhu Ziqing’s former residence in Yangzhou was a triad courtyard where three generations of Zhu Ziqing’s family lived in Yangzhou. Hidden in the city, with blue bricks and black tiles, carved beams and painted buildings, simple and simple. The small courtyard with the characteristics of the Jiangnan water town is full of greenery. Although the vicissitudes of life have already projected mottled marks, even though the things are people and everything else, the small yard is quiet and quiet, and the world is independent, the outside world is ever-changing, the wheels of the times are rolling, and this small yard is almost isolated. There are a lot of texts and old photos in Zhu Ziqing's former residence, which are full of voices and emotions, telling about Zhu Ziqing's wonderful and short life as a literati. Restore the traces of Mr. Zhu Ziqing's real life in the greatest effort. The bedroom, study, and living room of the Republic of China led us inadvertently into the old time. The joys, sorrows, joys, sorrows and reunions of the family were once again staged and presented one by one. The three generations of Zhu Ziqing's family originally enjoyed the pleasures of family relationships here, because the father in "Back View" was once stubborn with the ethical principles and possessive love of "father, father and son" in the old age. The relationship between father and son was tense and eventually fell apart. Mr. Zhu Ziqing used his twists and turns and his heart-warming knots, bit by bit, painstakingly engraved, and the words "Back View" "Lotus Pond Moonlight" and other works came into being. As a poet, Zhu Ziqing not only possesses extraordinary talents, but also full of arrogance of literati. He is in troubled times and hardships. He does not crumble his eyebrows or follow the trend. In the end, poverty and illness were mixed, and he died young. Perhaps on the eve of the political scene, this was a kind of relief and luck. The literary works have been passed down to this day. In the middle of the small courtyard, the white statue of Mr. Zhu Ziqing has lifelike eyes, sitting calmly in the moonlight of a lotus pond, staring at everything in the small courtyard, perhaps in his unique way, to guard the home with warm memories. In the pristine and tranquil Zhu Ziqing's former residence, the taste of the years has been quietly precipitated, and your back is so lonely in the moonlight of the lotus pond.

Additional Information


The former residence of Zhu Ziqing was built in the Qing Dynasty. It is a typical courtyard house in Yangzhou, which reveals a strong book. The former residence of Zhu Ziqing is a place where Zhu Ziqing’s parents, children and Zhu Ziqing have lived in Yangzhou for decades. There are not many tourists here, and the place is not big. Compared with the large house of Yangzhou’s high-ranking officials, there is a clear-cut face. After repairing, the house still preserves some of the daily furniture and stationery used by Zhu. The main hall has the bust of Mr. Zhu. Behind the statue is a picture of “Hollywood Moonlight”.
