Qikou

The old town of Qikou, which lies in Lvliang Mountain (a famous mountain in china) and the Yellow River (Chinese people call it “the mother river”), is a Chinese famous town rich in culture and history, the Xiwan village in this town is among the first “China’s famous town of culture and history”. It has been the most important place in military since ancient times. Until Ming Dynast, Qing Dynasty and then the period of the republic of China, thanks to the convenience of the river, it became the most important town of trade which was the joint place of economy and culture to connect east and west. It is also known as “the No.1 town of Jiuqu Yellow River”. I shout these photos with the heart wishing to remind the people of new generation not to forget this ancient town which had a great meaning once in history. I hope the new generation can observe, feel and experience the glory of this town.
