It has the reputation of "the world's first landscape Taiji" natural wonder.
Surrounded by mountains on all sides and surrounded by water on three sides, the ancient city has beautiful mountains and rivers, outstanding people, numerous ancient sites and relics, and simple and elegant folk customs. It is an ideal place for the majority of tourists to sightseeing, leisure and vacation, and archaeology research.
Zhaohua is an important part of Jianmen Shudao site, a national key scenic spot, and a national key cultural relic protection unit. With an area of 20 square kilometers and a total population of 17000, the ancient city was named as a famous historical and cultural town in Sichuan Province by the people's Government of Sichuan Province in 1992. The style of the ancient city remains the same, with rich historical and cultural heritage. On December 10, 2011, Zhaohua ancient city in Zhaohua District of Guangyuan, together with ten ancient towns such as Lijiang in Yunnan Province, won the top ten awards in China on December 10, 2011 at the first "hometown · grand ceremony" jointly organized by China Folk Artists Association, UNESCO Folk Art International Organization (IOV), China agricultural film and television center of CCTV, and China network television station Ancient town award with cultural heritage.
The layout of the ancient city building complex is reasonable. The existing four streets and five alleys are all made of local green sand slate in the style of tile back with three horizontal and two vertical, high in the middle and low on both sides. The streets and alleys are connected by the "Ding" character, which has the military defense characteristics of "the roads are interlinked and the city gates are not opposite". Streets and alleys have a good spatial pattern and pleasant scale. On both sides of the ancient street, there are complete buildings of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, most of which are Chuandou wooden structure, small green tiles and simple northern Sichuan style houses.
There are seven kilometers east of baoniang. Bao was the wife of Guan Suo, the third son of Guan Yu. She fought with the army and was buried here after her death. The tomb was stolen by French archaeologists segaland and lardigue in 1914, and its excavation remains in the Paris museum. But the tomb still exists, the stone is firm, and the interior is dark and inflexible. There is a stone tablet in front of the tomb: "the tomb of Bao family, the wife of Guan Suo, general of Shu Han Dynasty". This is a rare ancient tomb of Han Dynasty.
Outside the east gate of Zhaohua ancient city, where the Jialing River and Bailong River meet, is the famous "jubai ancient ferry" on the Shu Road. In the past, thousands of people held hands during the day and thousands of lights at night. This is the story of Emperor Xuanzong's lucky trip to Shu in the old and new books of Tang Dynasty, "when a couple of fish are carrying a boat across Tianjin, the debater thinks that the dragon" occurs here. It is said that Emperor Ming of Tang Dynasty held a banquet on the South Bank of the ferry for three days, which is still called "banyan dam". "County annals" records that Tang Xizong fled to Sichuan, and then joined at the jubai ferry. The water was sharp and the waves were high, and it was difficult to cross the boat. Because the Bailong River was white and the Jialing River was red, it was at the beginning of the confluence. They still kept their own flow direction and original color, "clear-cut", turbid and indistinct, like two dragons rolling. Du Fu, Yao he, Yue Yu, Yang Shen, Wang Shizhen and other poets of all dynasties have their own poems. There are more than 30 inscriptions on the original Dukou tablets, but few of them can be found. However, what the common people remember most clearly is "the stele on which the magistrate of the Tang county made it easy for him to pull a fiber in the waist wat".
This stele tells that during the reign of emperor Yizong of Tang Dynasty, He Yi, the magistrate of Yichang (now Zhaohua), tied his waist and jacket and inserted wat board in his waist to lead a boat for the spring outing boat of Cui Pu, the governor of Lizhou city. He Yi resisted his immediate superior, Cui Sishi, who, regardless of his busy farming, asked him to catch people to pull boats. The county magistrate's action, shame Cui Chi Shi had to stop the boat tour. Sun Qiao, a Jinshi of the same period, passed by Yichang and inquired about this matter and wrote an article on how easy it is to learn. In this way, the cruel officials who ignored the people's life and death and the decadent official system of the imperial court were mercilessly exposed and castigated. Many of the poem steles of Dukou also praised the magistrate of He county. Zhang Chuanshan's poem in the Qing Dynasty said: "the two rivers still flow around the county. In the Tang Dynasty, there were no couples among the Xianli in ancient times. They only liked to burn the imperial edict on tea. Why did Yaohu go to paint boats. Under the monument, farmers should shed tears, mulberry Yin mulberry wife do not know. Sun Qiao, a Jinshi in Xiantong County, often makes people profit a lot. " The local people are all people's stele, which is said to be a good story for thousands of years.
At the west gate of the ancient city, close to Fei's tomb, there is a "Ding Gong Temple". Ding Gong, the father and son of Ding Gongbao, served as governor of Sichuan Province in Chengdu in the second year of Guangxu. He advocated the famous Sichuan dish "Kung Pao Diced Pork". Ding Jianye, the father of Ding Gongbao, was a county magistrate in Zhaohua. Gong Bao was born here. It is said that his nurse is now from Lishu village, Baolun township. After Ding Gongbao became the governor of Sichuan, he built "Dinggong Temple" in Zhaohua, and the inscription still exists.

Living fossil of ancient city civilization
The ancient city of Zhaohua has a history of more than 4000 years since Tang Yu. Although it has a long history, the ancient city civilization is less impacted by modern civilization. It is the best preserved ancient county town and the only ancient city of the Three Kingdoms. The ruins of the ancient city of qinjiameng after the flood are clear and distinguishable.

The ancient city wall of Han Dynasty and ancient buildings of ancient city gate, Bagua well and Longmen Academy in Ming and Qing Dynasties are well preserved. Bronze stone tools, boat coffin tombs, Qin pottery and Han bricks have been excavated. The ancient city of Zhaohua is famous for its outstanding people and elegant appearance. Numerous honest and upright officials have left touching stories. Many literati, literati and poets have left countless works handed down from generation to generation, adding a magnificent chapter to the history of China. Fei Yi was the founder of Hanshou City, He Yi was able to take a boat with Ju Baidu, Xu Xin died in the battle of Changling mountain, Wu Zhenqi wrote articles on drama, Zeng Fengji taught people to attach importance to sericulture, and Meng Zhaojian's academy to educate people... This is a story handed down from generation to generation, and everyone respects it. The vicissitudes of Jiameng ancient pass and Tianxiong pass, and the sound of the river in jubai lake, left countless poems of scholars such as Du Fu and Lu you. In memory of Ding Jianye and Ding Baozhen, the father and son of "donating money to buy property and avoiding the man's husband and horse forever", later generations built Dinggong temple at the west gate of the ancient city. The temple meeting was held on April 28 of the lunar calendar. The "Three Kingdoms culture and Art Festival" and "Three Kingdoms Cultural Tourism Festival" are held in the Spring Festival Golden Week and the National Day golden week each year, which have attracted tourists and scholars from all over the world to visit, travel and archaeological research.
According to the records of the Three Kingdoms, the biography of the first lord recorded: "when the first Master arrived at Jiameng in the north, he was able to ask for Lu and build up his kindness to collect the hearts of the people.". In the 17th year of Jian'an (212 A.D.), after Liu Bei arrived at Jiameng, he inspected the terrain and found that it was exactly like the map presented by Zhang Song: "the two rivers of this city converge and go around the east of the city; the ancient road of Jinniu passes through the city; the majestic gate of Jianmen stands beside it; the ancient jubai ferry is a city of bullets, but there is a solid foundation of gold and soup". It is a strategic place. He stationed troops and trained troops in Jian'an 10 In the seventh year (212 A.D.), taking advantage of Cao Cao's attack on the eastern Wu, he adopted Pang Tong's advice and turned away from Jiameng to attack Chengdu on the pretext of helping Dongwu. Liu Zhang was forced to surrender, laying a solid foundation for the establishment of Shu. In the first year of Zhangwu (221 AD), Liu Bei established the kingdom of Shu Han in Chengdu and became emperor zhaolie himself. At that time, Liu Bei, not forgetting Jiameng, an old base, personally took the first and last words from the popular auspicious "Han Zuo Yongshou" (Zuo, meaning the position of the king), and changed Jiameng to Hanshou County. He hoped that the Han Dynasty, which he had created, would coexist with heaven and earth and live with the sun and the moon. Therefore, there is a saying that "Shu Han flourished, Jia sprouted".
After the establishment of the Shuhan regime, Hanshou city was the military supplies transfer base and command center for Zhuge Liang's six expeditions to Qishan and Jiang Wei's nine attacks on the Central Plains. Since the fifth year of Jianxing, Zhuge Liang has been busy on Jiameng ancient Shu Road. In the 19th year of Yanxi (252 AD), Fei Yi was ordered to set up the prime minister's office in Hanshou. After Jiang Wan, he was in charge of the military and political affairs of Shu state. The next year, he was drunk and was killed by Guo Xun, the general of Cao Wei. After his death, he was buried in Hanshou (now Zhaohua). After Fei Yi was killed, Jiang Wei took over the military power of Shu state, but he failed to conquer the Central Plains nine times. In the winter of the fourth year of Jingyuan (Annals of the Three Kingdoms, Zhonghui Zhuan), the state of Wei attacked Shu Han with three armies. Jiang Wei retreated to Jianmen pass. He wanted to resist the enemy by virtue of the natural danger of Jianmen pass. Zhang Yi, general of the left chariot, Dong Jue, general of the auxiliary state, and Hu Ji, Guan Suo, the garrison generals of Jiameng yuan, were sent to defend Hanshou (Zhaohua) together. At the same time, Zhong Hui, the general of Wei Dynasty, set out to cross the Jialing River and seize the city of Hanshou. The two armies had a lot of fierce battles. The wife of Guan Suo, Bao Sanniang, died in this battle. After her death, she was buried in the northern suburb of Zhaohua city. The tomb of Bao Sanniang has been preserved to this day. In November 263 A.D., "from Yi and Jue Fu to Han Shou, Wei and Hua retreated from Yin and Ping. When they were suitable for Yi and Jue, they all withdrew from Baojian pavilion to refuse the meeting.". In the 42nd year of Mian Han Dynasty, Zhu Ge's regime was destroyed and Liu zhanhan's army was defeated. Although the Shuhan regime was destroyed, the ancient city of Zhaohua recorded the rise and fall of Shu Han and the legends and sites left behind, which provided rich historical materials for the study of the Three Kingdoms culture. Therefore, there are: "when Shu Han flourished, Jia sprouted; when Shu Han died, Jia sprouted." It's a folk rumor.
