Walking through a well-preserved wall into it, it is a building that is "dangling old". Qu Yuan has experienced many years of wind, frost and snow. Some wooden beams have begun to decay, doors and windows have also Some of them are broken, but the Qu Yuan in the hall is constantly fragrant and stands still. Many parents and elders took their children to visit. They also explained to Qu Yuan's deeds at the same time as they visited. They said: This ancestor "long sighs to cover up and grieve the hardships of the people" is pointed out by thousands of people. Jealousy is framed everywhere. He couldn't bear to watch the country faltering and finally plunged himself into the river. Parents will infiltrate good patriotic feelings into their children during their travels. This is a trick, and you may wish to come and pay tribute to this old man who is united as a country.

The archway here is the landmark building of the old county town of Zigui, and the four characters of Qu Yuan's hometown were raised by Guo Moruo. The two stone monuments on the left side of the archway are "the hometown of Qu Yuanfu Qu Yuan" and "the hometown of Han Zhaojun Wang Yu".
