The county town of Nong'an County, Jilin Province, has been known as "Huanglongfu" since ancient times.
The hero of the Song Dynasty, Yue Fei's "I will attack the Yellow Dragon and drink with all the gentlemen" is a strong proof of this.
My first visit to the county seat of Nong'an County, Jilin Province, was on June 5, 2013.
Full of thought to the "Yellow Dragon House", you can see a lot of monuments, but very disappointed, the whole Nongan County, really did not see what well monuments, the "Yellow Dragon House" some of the vain name it!
When you walk on the street of Nongan County, you can see a tower from afar, and people used to call it "Nongan Liao Tower".
I had seen the pictures of "Nongan Liao Tower" in newspapers and magazines many times before and read the historical information about "Nongan Liao Tower", but this time I was there!
Historically, "Nongan Liao Tower" has also been called "Longan Tower", "Longan Tower", "Longwan Tower" and so on.
However, the "Nong'an Liao Tower" that we have seen so far is just a new tower built on the original site after demolishing the original Liao Dynasty remnant tower.
The "Nongan Liao Tower" in Jilin before the 1950s was already in a state of disrepair and was so overwhelmed that it was likely to collapse at any time.
In 1953, the state plans to fully repair the "Nongan Liao Tower" in Jilin, but the construction progress was slow, and then stopped ......
During this construction, a brick chamber was found on the 13th floor of Nong'an Liao Pagoda, in which bronze casted Sakyamuni, bronze Guanyin and other Liao Dynasty relics were found.
Thirty years later, in 1983, the state continued to repair the "Nong'an Liao Tower" in Jilin, so that the "Nong'an Liao Tower", a thousand-year-old solid tower, was restored to its original appearance and reproduced the style of Liao Dynasty architecture.
In 2013, the "Nong'an Liao Tower" in Nong'an County, Jilin Province, became a national key cultural relics protection unit.
Nowadays, this "Nongan Liao Tower" is not only the landmark of Nongan County, but also the most profound memory of Jilin Nongan people who live all over the motherland!
Nong'an County, Jilin Province, built a railroad in 1935 during the "Manchukuo" period, connecting Changchun to the south and the railroad to the north all the way to Baichengzi.
In 1946, the tracks were removed ......
In 1958, the railroad from Changchun to Nong'an County was re-tracked and soon the project was put on hold.
The track laying project was only completed in 1972. Soon Changchun - Nongan - Baicheng full line opened to traffic.
The waiting room of the railway station in Nongan County, Jilin Province, June 5, 2013.
June 6, 2013, strolling on the street of Nongan County, Jilin Province.
The people of Nongan are fond of "Huanglongfu", and the "Trade Street" is named after it.
This "trade street" is very busy, very lively.
Walking on this street, I could see the "Nongan Liao Tower" from afar.
So, we walked in the direction of "Nongan Liao Tower" ......
When I travel to a place, I like to walk.
The benefits of walking are many: exercise and talk to the local people at any time ......
This is the county town of Nong'an County, Jilin Province, where I lived, or the place with the name "Huanglong" - "Huanglong Hotel".
