Chengyang Wind and Rain Bridge


Chengyang Wind and Rain Bridge,located in Changyang Dong Village of Sanjiang County, can be taken as a symbol of the Dong ethnic architecture. It also can be called Yongji Bridge or Panlong Bridge and takes a very important position in the Chinese architectural culture. Main materials used to build it are wood and stone. With a history about 100 years, Chengyang Wind and Rain Bridge still keeps a complete appearance for people to study the Dong minority culture.

Built in 1916, the bridge is 64.4 meters long, 3.4 meters wide and 10.6 meters high. Bound together by mortise and tenon construction it stretches across the Linxi River. Both the sides of the bridge are inlayed with railing, so the whole bridge looks like a long corridor. Also, there are 5 tower-like kiosks with many horns in the bridge. Long stools were set up on both sides of the bridge for people to rest. From the stools where people sat you could see the Linxi River windingly flowing happily. On both sides of the river it was full of tea forest and green woods on the sloping hills. Also you could see that the peasants were working in the plantations. There is also a reservoir on one side of the river.

The piers are made of stone, the upper structures are mainly wooden, and the roofs are covered with tiles.
