Pictures catch ancient & cultural heritage of a Sichuan town


Langzhong, located in southwest Sichuan Province, is more than 2300 years old. It has kept an ancient town of 1.5 square kilometers in good repair. In 1986, China's central government named it a famous historic city, with its abundance of local folk culture. Gazing down from the top of Mount Jinping - the highest mountain in the Jialing River valley, one gets a full birds' view of Langzhong. Baoning brand vinegar, Zhang Fei beef and steamed sugar buns are the three most famous local products of the town. Langzhong has applied to become one of the world cultural heritage sites.(Photo: dazhi)
