  • Spring, attractions are traveled by few. Haggis last night after a warm stomach aiming it one, hidden behind a row of antique wall tile without any decorative lighting, night and felt a brick wall as smooth as the polished. Cheng Tian Temple is the tallest of existing more than 100 ancient pagoda in Ningxia a brick Tower, was only documented in Ningxia built pagodas. Tap room is a square space, interior structure of each layer for wooden floors, wooden staircase twists up. From the tower into the tap room at first sight, a chill was narrow--it's three o'clock in the afternoon! According to the Tower's aunt said, many wooden ladders are the old wood (should be left during the restoration of the Qing dynasty), part of the wood is a bit loose, so every day 11 layers, level level check if the wooden ladder safety. Winding wooden staircase is very cramped, only one person can pass, accidentally hit his head. Each layer of different scenery, climb adds a little fun. East Garden scenes of dying young in early spring, pink and white flowers while a little boring, but lining the quaint simplicity of Buddhist holy sites. The West is rock art research center, among others, the resident coordinator, red walls and black tiles surrounding a small courtyard. North-South were more Jing, yinchuan, is looking down. Open the wooden doors of the top layer of a large round window, sitting on the windowsill, the whole Tower alone, quietly enjoying the fortress city of today's modern new look. Tower and turn layers off, aunt of the watch tower in a cotton coat, nest in the Wicker Chair, basking in the Sun. Sitting on the steps, chatting with her, listen to the Native North-East of yinchuan in yinchuan, people's eyes. Are chat with, a Taiwan of old mission shout to came, see Tower Qian several tree peach, some old too pulled with branches on began photo, has a old man not know has what grievances, kept to shake with which a branch, aunt called has several again "Mr, please don't shake tree", he are didn't stopped, last also is mission friends put he pulled live. Two year old man that moved to Taiwan with his parents from mainland China said Taiwan still have them with us into "floating population" (I forgot the word), as Aboriginal people, there is a separate call, their cultural background and those of the so-called real people in Taiwan still have differences; they also referred to the city's good social welfare In particular, some parts of welfare for the elderly, I laughed: you quickly return, return will be able to enjoy the benefits of good!

  • We have built during the Qing dynasty Buddhist temple, has a very high tower, overlooking the city. Narrow passages are all going up and down stairs, so carefull underfoot and overhead.
