Development history

Qianchuan has a long history and abundant human resources. In the thirty-fourth year of Qianlong reign of the Qing Dynasty, Xu Bingjian, a renowned scholar in Guanzhong, said in the preface of Qianchuan Jilue that "Qianyang Ancient Juyuan Garden, the difference between flying mountains, the wonder of water, the miracle of great rivers, and from the Longmen surrounded by people and smoke, Lushe Tuen, the victory of flower and bird navigation boats, is not different, but also to build famous areas. The ancient emperor Gao Xin died in Si. There were Shang A Heng Geng in Si. Three generations of Virgin Daughters were born in Si. Zixia was devoted to teaching in Si. Damoses was recreational in Si. Other scholars, doctors, filial piety and chastity continued in Si for generations. Guanguan Liyu in the Book of Songs Daya, in the river continent, graceful ladies, gentlemen are eager to seek, and the idiom "Peach and plum do not speak, down from Chengxi" all originate from this, which means that Qianchuan is a water-rich treasure land with outstanding people, many beautiful women, talented women, charming scenery, which can be called a fairyland on earth. At the end of the Qin Dynasty, Chu and Han struggled for supremacy. Han Xin crossed the army with poppies and pushed directly to Anyi, the capital of Wei, and captured the leopard of the king of Wei. The existing Li Shu exquisite Han Dynasty "Heyang Lingcao Quanbei" was also unearthed here, and is recognized as a treasure of the calligraphy circle. Lei Jinger, a famous poetess of the Qing Dynasty, was born in Qiechuan. Qianchuan is rich in folk art, floral flowers, paper-cut famous broadcast in the capital, ancient dance drama, beautiful "floating lotus leaves" are also shining with the brilliance of the Yellow River culture.

In the 1930s, Wang Luyan, a famous essayist, praised Qichuan as the spring when he escaped in winter. In recent years, leaders from the central, provincial and municipal governments have visited frequently. Xi Zhongxun and Ma Wenrui have inscribed the scenic spots successively. The governor of Shaanxi Province, Andong Cheng, praised it with the inscription "A Miracle in the Middle Reaches of the Yellow River". Qianchuan Scenic Spot, China's largest lake-type wetland, who will protect it? Mother of the Yellow River, the wonder of the world carved by God-made ghosts and axes, is admired by all. In January 1998, the Ministry of National Construction organized relevant experts to investigate and demonstrate that the Qianchuan Scenic Spot is a wetland ecological type area with high scientific and ornamental value. In 1999, it will be submitted as a key report to the State Council for approval as a national key scenic spot.

At present, the Master Plan of Qianchuan Scenic Spot has been compiled and detailed plans are being made. The Heyang County Committee and the county government have also promulgated a series of preferential policies on increasing the pace of opening up and development of Qianchuan Scenic Spot and attracting investment. In the 21st century, Qianchuan scenic spot, the Pearl of the middle reaches of the Yellow River, will be a tourist resort of the greatest concern to mankind. It will attract more tourists from home and abroad to see its elegant demeanor. The high gold content will also give investors a generous return. Qinyi Lake is located at the southern end of Qianchuan scenic spot. The main canal of Donglei Drainage Yellow River lies in the west of the scenic spot like a dragon. It is north-south. Youth shelter forest is like a green barrier, guarding the endless Shili Qianchuan. Along the main canal, the road travels about 3 kilometers southward, and then reaches the foot of Qinyi Mountain.

After Qin unified China, in order to strengthen the central government, a number of post roads were opened from Xianyang, the capital, to all parts of the country. The post roads leading to Hedong passed through Qianchuan, and the post stations were set up in Defeng Town, under the Qinyi Mountains. The Records of Heyang County, which was compiled during Qianlong's reign, contains: "Qinyi Mountain, in the north of Yubei and the east of Nanercun, there are Hedaoling Mountains, which are wide only for measuring feet, with double streams, running down successively, and rivers, rising to a peak, rising to a height of 100, with a series of ancestral halls, which were rebuilt at the end of Ming Dynasty and worshiped by Liu Changyun, a famous intellectual residence." Between the youth shelter forest and the main canal, reeds, fish ponds and field crops, birds such as egrets, grey storks, mandarins, wild ducks or flying, or foraging, or resting cranes, or chasing water show the moving scene of harmonious coexistence between man and nature.

Ren Leshan, Wise Leshui and Qianchuan are interdependent scenery, which makes countless tourists linger and forget to return.

Virgin Spring

Virgin Spring, also known as East Carp Pool, Fuyu Spring, is located in the Ludang of Qianchuan Scenic Area. Its name comes from an ancient local folk custom.

Qianchuan used to have the "Four Notre-Daughters Temple" to worship Yumu, Tangfei, Taiyu and Taiyu people. It is a unique temple for negotiating with Sichuan. It is planned to be restored now. On the vast river beach beside the virgin spring, the breeze slowly comes, the sky is high and cloudy, the reeds are dense, the reeds are fragrant in summer, and the spring water is floating in the air in winter, which stretches for ten miles. Looking around the wilderness makes people relaxed and happy. For people who are far away from the noisy city, it is really a rare enjoyment of life to be near the wilderness and interesting virgin spring. Therefore, there is a saying that "no Virgin Spring is equal to no Qiechuan".
