This ancient town in Jiangxi, the name of the emperor is mispronounced, is one of the four major engraving bases in the Ming and Qing dynasties, and the old house needs a nameplate

Among the surrounding ancient towns, Huwan Ancient Town is the one that I love the most and take the most pictures. Huwan Town is located in the west of Jinxi County, Jiangxi Province, with Shushan in the east, Linggu in the west, Fuhe River in the south, and Post Road in the north. The population of Guzhen Township is 13,000. One of the reasons I like Huwan is that the old town has well-preserved and large-scale traditional ancient streets and alleys, as well as a relatively complete range of Gan-style buildings. It has a rich cultural heritage and is one of the four major engraving bases in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Since the middle and late Wanli period of the Ming Dynasty, the engraving has been printed by the emperors of Qianlong, Jiaqing and Daoguang in the Qing Dynasty, which lasted for more than 100 years. Among them, several famous printing halls, such as Dawentang, Liangyitang, Shanchengtang and Wenkuitang, have been in the business for two centuries. The Huwan printing book is sold throughout the country, known as "Gan version" or "Jiangxi version". The bookstore building complex consists of three north-south streets, Qianshupu Street, Houshupu Street and Lijia Lane. There are alleys connected to each other. There are hundreds of engraving and printing workshops and storefronts, and 201 of them still exist. The reason why I am fascinated by the old house (shū) Creek Academy is its legendary history and culture. Taking its place name as an example, according to the "Jinxi Geographical Names", in the early Ming Dynasty, Xu's family moved from Xu's family in Houtan, the county. And living, elegantly known as the Marsh Bay. It is said that Emperor Qianlong traveled to the south of the Yangtze River and stopped in front of the road sign. He did not know whether he misread the word "Huwan" on the stone tablet, or whether it was Lord Qianlong's whim to play a prank to test whether he was really "Jinkou Yuyan". Anyway, he blurted out and read it as "Xuwan". ". The emperor, Lao Tzu, read a typo, who dares to say it? Xiaomin naturally did not dare, so he had to make mistakes, so the name of Huwan has always been read as Xuwan. The brand-new archway at the entrance of the ancient town I admire the exquisite elegance and antique flavor of the Huwan Bookstore complex. Although it is not as spacious as some deep residences, its contour lines and brick and wood carving rooms have a lingering bookish atmosphere. interest. On October 7, 2019, the Huwan Bookstore complex was announced as the eighth batch of national key cultural relics protection units. Among the Huwan buildings, the Guanyin Pavilion is the most special and rare. The Guanyin Pavilion was built in the early Qing Dynasty. It is divided into three layers. The lower layer is the lane gate passage, 7 meters long and 6 meters wide. , glazed tile roof. She stands gracefully behind the newly built granite archway, which is an unforgettable landmark building from which she entered the Huwan. She has been standing for a hundred years, and although her face is easy to age, her charm still remains. Spring Festival in front of Guanyin Pavilion Every time I go to Huwan, the oil noodles are naturally eaten and even photographed. As a local specialty and traditional famous brand, Huwan oil noodles are well-known far and wide, with many nicknames such as Longxugong Noodles, Xu Noodles, Fu Lu Xi Noodles, and Shou Noodles. It appeared in the market in the late Ming Dynasty, and was selected as the court food in the Qing Dynasty. In the Republic of China, the hardcover oil surface was packaged in a red lacquered wooden box, which shows its high value. The strength of Huwan oil noodles lies in the use of materials. The raw materials such as first-class high-quality flour, camellia oil or sesame oil, refined potato flour or arrowroot powder, table salt (mostly fine sand and sea salt produced in Fujian) are used, and the formula is strictly formulated according to different seasons. The third-stage fermentation is made through more than a dozen processes such as hand refining and breeze drying. No wonder it can withstand the hands of the noodle maker when it is put on the shelves. The hand strength of the noodle-drying and ramen master needs to be just right. The oil surface is completely pulled out by hand. The slender, long, and tidy streets are the most attractive to me. It is the ancient town of Huwan and their somewhat ancient life. An impoverished expression. Most of the people who stay in the ancient town are children and elderly people. Some elderly people went out to travel around the world when they were young, and when they were old, they returned to their hometown to guard the old house of their ancestors. , That nostalgia. At present, the government is strengthening the protection of the ancient town, and the restoration of the old houses has also been put on the agenda. Every old house has been registered and a nameplate has been put up, and some houses are being rescued. Visiting Ancient Paintings A beautiful life started in the alleys and the old houses became more and more precious, some of which had collapsed for many years, and finally began to be repaired. The materials and craftsmanship are all old-fashioned. The people of the ancient town are guarding the old house, which means guarding their ancestors and guarding them. In the past time, guarding the past glory, guarding the most accustomed and rough life, the soul has its own safe place, and the heart is full of indescribable comfort. They walked on the Qingshiban Street in the ancient town, as if the time had gone back and the ancients had passed through. Although their clothes had the colors of the times, and there were many fashionable things they carried on their shoulders, the expressions on their faces were the same as those of their ancestors. The calmness and serenity sometimes showed some inherent dullness, but there was absolutely no sorrow, more joy and satisfaction. Many old objects, old trades, and old feelings that cannot be found in other places can be seen just around the corner of the ancient town. The old camphor tree, the three little brothers in the festive alley, who witnessed the time by the ancient post road in Shibanong, I blindly photographed the expressions of the people in the ancient town with great interest, and naturally I also captured the spirit of the ancient town. Every time I go, there is a new harvest. It seems that he is not here to collect wind, but to visit relatives. Every time I squatted on an old street corner and lingered, I often took a photo for a long time without thinking about it. I found the feeling of my hometown in Huwan, as if I lived here in my previous life, and I would like to be in close contact with it in this life. In the rich expressions of the people in the ancient town under the freeze frame of my camera, I feel that I have had a heart-to-heart relationship with them, and I have forgotten both things. The long corridor is a good gathering for mothers who came to sell ducks with their children. When they are free, they are interested in scanning mobile phone videos. From their vegetable gardens to market stalls, production, transportation and marketing are the finishing touch. Not to mention her body is as light as a swallow, she can also be called a brisk trot. She made a gesture: this year, there are 8 old men who carry a mouse cage at a roadside shoe repair stall and drooled when they smelled the smell. The owner of the meat stall is full of sesame oil and noodle stalls busy with business. This iron table cover is really cheap. It is only 20 yuan. Duo Dongshui, my friends, enjoy themselves. When I grow up, I will become a newcomer in your old village.
