Tsai ancient village farm visits remember November 12, 2017, I followed the mountain folk songs delegation commandant Poetry Society organizations to Lake County’s first hot spring village to watch local culture festival.Early winter morning, the sky overcast, no sun no rain, it was warm weather in early winter, when little like the beginning of spring, neither hot nor cold very suitable for tourism.In the morning, we set off from the front of the store all the way south, approximately 1 hour drive to reach the 362 provincial road leading to the village of Tang Quan Township Golden Eagle fork in the road, and then take the bus along the rugged winding mountain road towards the destination.About 6 km winding road, winding, various obstacles, narrow concrete road surface being disseminated rotting weed leaves, seemed so dark, speckled traces the vicissitudes of life.The car occasionally through the forest trail, add a bit of mystery. 10 am, the first cultural festival in the village of Golden Eagle Square opened nearly a thousand visitors from inside and outside the county to watch the wonderful cultural performances.Cultural programs full of local culture, greet the audience roared its approval, more than one hour of the opening ceremony and cultural performances soon ended. Lunch will be arranged in the ancient village of Tsai farm farmhouse dishes are all city people eat very few non-polluting, low-fat, high-fiber green healthy foods, such as konjac, sweet potato, pumpkin leaves, konjac Wo…Very tasty, for three high-population is a rare meal.After the meal visit ancient houses. According to statistics, a model farm Tsai ancient houses built in the Ming Dynasty, to date more than 500 years of history, style architecture with a combination of residential local Dabie Mountain, is the portrayal of ancient houses Dabie Mountain area in the long process of historical development is a reflection of paleo village tortuous change the context of a living fossil.Anhui Province in 2012 was designated as the cultural relics protection units, it is December the same year was selected by the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Housing, Ministry of Finance jointly named the first batch of Chinese traditional village List .Tsai ancient farm houses, in fact, all surnamed Yin, early living legend indeed Tsai family, and later Tsai male dating from Yin surname nephew living in harmony.Today, Tsai farm-preserved ancient houses more than 300, construction area of 14,600 square meters, housing 70 families, basically surnamed Yin.Scale and massing village view, should have their own history of prosperity.Tsai ancient houses farm northwest toward the southeast, hillside, surrounded by three mountains, across the lush bamboo forest, mountain verdant trees, vivacious scene agreeable environment, living environment seemed so gentle, elegant and comfortable.Creek through residential areas and over, gurgling water.We Leiqi walked along the banks of the ancient quartzite small populations that are civil engineering structures, brick wall head Vama small, simple and elegant appearance.After the low-ordinary residential high even before into a unified whole, every household has to get interlinked Road.In the era of no glass material, between households and households using natural light patio, at the time of this design it is very reasonable, clever.The internal structure of columns, beams pack, beautifully engraved doors of the gate, contains the classical arts and culture.It is said that these Huizhou Architecture and Art Dabie old residential buildings together form a scale with a high body mass cultural value and historical research value. Frankly, I have little knowledge of antiquities, but I deep accumulation of these representatives of the long years, these old-fashioned feel appreciation for a stable, harmonious, lasting, quiet, peaceful.Into ancient houses, so I had a shuttle to produce in the long tunnel of time in feeling, brought back recollections of fleeting taste of conditions.My childhood is living in a double into the old house, a dozen families living together in the same clan, neighborhood get along, regardless of the good living conditions and poor, without distinction, not snobbish, respect each other, failing to help each other do not speak any condition, kind and sincere, harmonious, friendly, gentle feeling is still fresh.Later improved rural landscape, every household demolition dispersed build houses, those ancient houses slowly disappear, the feeling will slowly past alienated.Concrete structure covered with small buildings long history of imprinting, construction materials and it was replaced by reinforced concrete, although strong, but has no kind of rustic nature. Ancient residential buildings, but is a carrier of Chinese traditional culture, while Tsai farm ancient residential buildings hundreds of years of vicissitudes been well preserved, contains Tsai farm people from generation to generation, create and follow folk and world situation, it is a celebration of simple Traditional Culture.Now, with modern, rapid progress of urbanization, the rural living conditions greatly improved, people’s attitudes have changed, but I still thought we were in pursuit of a better life, not lose the traditional culture of our ancestors left behind.Nearly two-hour visit with a beautiful sigh with sadness emotions left, Tsai farm ancient villages, goodbye!
