Visiting the Millennium Ancient Town - Wuyuan Jiangwan Travelogue43


Wuyuan Jiangwan, a national AAAA tourist area, is a shining pearl of Wuyuan, the most beautiful countryside in China. Jiangwan is a thousand-year-old town with a rich cultural heritage. From the Song Dynasty to the Qing Dynasty, 38 scholars, scholars and eunuchs were raised here; Jiang Yilin, a famous general who fought against the Japanese in the Ming Dynasty, Jiang Yichang, a doctor at the court, Jiang Yong, a master of the Qing Dynasty's Park Science, Jiang Qian, an educator in the Republic of China, and Jiang Zemin, a former general secretary.
Jiangwan Village was built in the late Sui and early Tang dynasties when the surnames of Teng, Ye, Bao and Dai gathered here to form a village called "Yunnan". In 1079, the eighth ancestor of Xiao Jiang, Jiang Enemy, moved into Yunnan, and his descendants gradually multiplied to form a large family, so Yunwan was renamed Jiangwan.
