Cultural details


The Yellow River is the symbol of the Chinese nation. It is not only a great river - the Yellow River, but also a symbol of the image of the Chinese nation with the Yellow Earth, the Yellow Emperor, the Yellow Skin and the legendary "Ji" Chinese Dragon. Therefore, people sublimate the turbid current flowing through the heart of the earth in Shenzhou to the "Holy River". From the Zuohe River, "Snow Plains thunder down Tianlong, a few waves along the road vertical and horizontal. Fissure walls swallow sand and frighten the earth. Clouds make rain howl in the sky. In his poems and sentences, we can appreciate that the Yellow River is like the momentum of the Chinese nation. It has gone through many twists and turns, and has a great courage and vitality to go forward bravely for a long time. "Hanshu Gushu Zhi" regards the Yellow River as the first of a hundred rivers: "The source of China's rivers is hundreds, not in Sidu, but the Yellow River is the ancestor."

The birthplace of Chinese culture

The Yellow River, the second largest river in China, is 5464 kilometers long and is the great mother river. "Looking at all the rivers, we can see the beautiful Yellow River. Far Kunlun's steep pole, out of the mountains of the vast'(Jin Chenggong's "Fanda River Fu"). Under her nurture and nourishment, the descendants of Yanhuang

By multiplying and thriving, Chinese culture can originate and develop. The Yellow River has always been known as the symbol of the great Chinese nation. Accordingly, a statue of Han Baiyu "nurturing" symbolizing the nurturing of the Yellow River to the Chinese nation was built on the waist of Wulongfeng Mountain in the central scenic spot of the Yellow River Scenic Area. On Camel Ridge, there are giant sculptures of the ancient water hero Dayu. He is not only the symbol of the progress of scientific civilization in China for 5000 years, but also the embodiment of the heroism spirit of the Chinese nation. The Yellow River is flooding out of the mountains here and plain flooding into the Central Plains. The geographical dividing line of the lower reaches is also in the nearby Taohuayu valley. The river surface under the mountains can be as wide as seven or eight miles, and the upper reaches of the river are narrow and deep as silk lines. The lower reaches of the river are vast in sand and deep in turbid waves. Its vigorous momentum and spectacular torrents make people not only sigh that "the water of the Yellow River is coming from the sky", but also feel the national pride.

Historical Heritage Landscape Scenic Spots

In the scenic spots of the Yellow River, there are many places of interest and attraction, which is like a microcosm of the brilliant cultural history of the Yellow River. Taohuayu, the site of Zhaocheng Temple, one of the eight famous sceneries in Tang Dynasty, Yangshao Culture Site of Qin King thousands of years ago, and ancient crossing of the Yellow River, gully dusk clouds, Yanliu of Sui Dynasty dyke, towering green of Yueshan and so on, which are well-known in Ming and Qing Dynasties, are all located in or around the scenic area.

Chairman Mao inspected the Yellow River

On October 31, 1952, Chairman Mao, the great leader, visited the Yellow River, stepped up Xiaoding Mountain, sat on the earth bank for a long time, and issued a great call to "do well in the affairs of the Yellow River". Now, a "glorious cave" has been built in a small farmhouse where Chairman Mao climbed the mountain. On Xiaoding Mountain, a large commemorative bronze statue of Chairman Mao visiting the Yellow River has been erected for people to observe and remember.

The Heroic Pavilion for Reporting the Nation

The South Bank of the Yellow River is a military stronghold and a place for military strategists to compete for. In the 1940s, the well-known new 35 division of the 38 Route Army fought fiercely with the Japanese invaders here until the final victory. In October 1990, a Pavilion for Reporting the Nation was built in the southern corner of Xiaoding Shandong Province to commemorate the fallen soldiers in the War of Resistance Against Japan. It has also become an excellent textbook for the later generations, especially for the youth, to carry out revolutionary history education and patriotic education.

New and Old Yellow River Railway Bridge

Close to the main artery of Beijing-Guangzhou Railway in the scenic spot of the Yellow River, two railway bridges across the dangerous nature of the Yellow River are particularly noticeable.

The two bridges were built in 1899 in late Qing Dynasty and 1958 in New China. Laoqiao was jointly constructed by French and Belgian capitalists by the Qing government, which lasted for five years and one month. It took only two years and one month for the new bridge to be designed and constructed by our country. It is a miracle in the history of the construction of the Yellow River Bridge. The old bridge has experienced the rise and fall of China in the past hundred years, while the new bridge has witnessed the great changes of the Central Plains after liberation. Now, the old bridge has completed its historic mission and has been demolished, leaving 5 holes at the southern end of the bridge, about 200 meters, for visiting and education. Recently, a memorial Pavilion for Chairman Mao to inspect the Yellow River and Premier Zhou to direct the flood control and rescue of the Yellow River has been built at the bridge head, which has become an important part of traditional revolutionary education.

Project of "Diversion of Yellow River into Zheng"

Located in the center of the scenic spot, the project of "diverting the Yellow River into Zhengzhou" is a huge project for the people of Zhengzhou to transform nature, develop production and improve life. The huge Shensha Lake and the huge suction pipes transport a large amount of water from the Yellow River to Zhengzhou every day. It plays a pillar role in the economic development of Zhengzhou and is the "lifeline" of industrial and agricultural production in Zhengzhou. It is not only the result of the city's people's arduous pioneering work and struggle, but also a model of water conservancy construction for human beings to conquer the Yellow River and turn harm into benefit.

In addition, the scenic spot also records the people of Zhengzhou greening barren hills, the "Zhengzhou Municipal Obligatory Tree Planting Monument" and the "Zhengzhou Greening Base Honorary Monument", the "Sino-Japanese Friendship Memorial Forest" and the "Asia-Pacific Youth Friendship Meeting Memorial Forest" to protect the ecology, the "Yellow River Monument Forest" to celebrate the splendid Yellow River culture and glorious achievements of socialism, and the "Peace and Friendship The essence of the original folk arts and crafts is brick carving hall, and the giant statues of the two emperors of the Yellow Emperor who are the national feelings of the four seas and the descendants of the Yellow Emperor. All of these are good materials for people, especially young people, to carry out patriotic ideological education.
