Riding Guangxi 5 – Ancient City of Binzhou

On the third day, November 21, 2022, it is 93 kilometers from Binyang to Laibin; Visitors to Liuzhou (by bus); From Liuzhou Lianhua Passenger Station to the hotel, it was originally planned to ride 8 kilometers to the guests today and stay with them.

It was temporarily decided to take a bus directly to Liuzhou after arriving at the guests, and stay in Liuzhou at night, leaving more than half a day in Liuzhou City and taking a bus to Lipu in the evening, so that two more days could be spent in Yangshuo and Guilin.

Depart from the hotel in the morning, 3 kilometers north along Linpu Road, to the ancient city of Pennsylvania.

After Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty pacified Nanyue, he changed Guilin Prefecture of the Qin Dynasty into Yulin Prefecture, which is roughly equivalent to the whole of Guangxi.

He set up Lingfang County in the middle of southern Guangxi.

His jurisdiction includes Binyang, Wuming, Nanning, Shanglin, Heshan, Hengzhou and Xingbin, which are sparsely populated.

In the Wu Dynasty of the Three Kingdoms, it was changed to Linpu County.

During the Zhenguan Period of the Tang Dynasty, Binzhou was set up, which was governed by the ancient town village in the southeast of Binyang County.

The Northern Song Dynasty moved to Xinbin, which is the ancient city of Binzhou.

The government of the Tang Dynasty had Jiaozhi, and Pennsylvania was the only way to Jiaozhi.

Southern Guangxi was developed in the Tang Dynasty.

The Northern Song Dynasty lost control of Jiaozhi, and Pennsylvania became a border county.

After the Nong Zhigao Uprising, if Song Renzong had not trusted and completely delegated power to Di Qing, it was hard to say where the border would stay.

There are South Street and North Street in the ancient city of Pennsylvania.

It seems that the South Street is well preserved and developed.

According to the sign at the entrance of Erpu Temple, the South Street was built in the Yuan Dynasty and completed in the Ming and Qing Dynasties.

Now it is basically a rebuilt building.

You can also see the South Bridge, Erpu Temple, Tianhou Palace, and Huangjia Courtyard, which should also be new faces.

It is said that Nanjie acid powder is famous in Guangxi and became Lingshui acid powder after it was introduced into Hainan.

There is an acid powder shop near the Tianhou Palace, but it has not opened today.

There is a shrine in the small Tianhou Palace, which sells vegetables at the door.

The south bridge is the county cultural protection unit (May 1989).

Pennsylvania may be the Erpu Temple in the north of the spread of Mazu’s belief.

It was originally the Erpu Temple.

In front of the Heavenly King Hall, there is the Confucius Temple on the left and the land shrine on the right.

The Huangjia Grand House is located in Toupu Street.

The old house on the east of the road was built in Xianfeng, and the new house on the west of the road was built in the Republic of China.

It passed under the memorial arch on the north street of Pennsylvania without stopping.

It continued to the north and rode back to National Highway 322.

At Lema Bridge, there is Shajiang River under the bridge, which is different from the Shajiang River we met yesterday between seven ponds and eight ponds.

This Shajiang River flows to the northeast and joins the Qingshui River in Shajiang Village.

The Qingshui River flows to Qianjiang Town in the north and joins the Hongshui River.

The upstream of the Hongshui River is the Nanpan River, which originates from the Maxiong Mountain in Zhanyi, Qujing, Yunnan Province.

When it joins the Beipan River, it is called the Hongshui River.

These rivers together constitute the upstream of the Xijiang River.

The sign of Lema Bridge has Zhuang characters: LWZ-MA-JGYAUZ.

The day before yesterday, I saw Zhuang language signs on the signboard near Nanning Railway Station (i.e.

the old city).

At that time, I thought that Zhuang language signs should be everywhere in the Zhuang Autonomous Region.

On the Internet, I saw Zhuang language on the gate of No.

1 Middle School in Nanning, but in the new city of Nanning, I hardly saw any Zhuang language.

I also saw no Zhuang language at Binyang County Ethnic Middle School passing by today.

On this ordinary bridge, Leng Buding was a little surprised to see Zhuang characters.


Qin Hui said in his article “Starting from” Cen Gongbao “and” Lu Wuming “that Lu Rongting (as the number one figure of the old Guangxi family) had a great influence on Guangxi, and Nanning, the capital of Guangxi, started from him.

In the 1950s, our country invited Soviet experts to help design the phonetic scheme of Zhuang.

The local accent of Wu Ming, Lu Rongting’s hometown, was used as the standard pronunciation of Zhuang.

Therefore, Guangxi Zhuang School was set up in Wu Ming.

(But this school) For more than 60 years later, it was in a very bad situation, so that today it barely maintained in the form of “Guangxi Ethnic High School – Guangxi Ethnic Technical Secondary School – Guangxi Zhuang School”.


Qin believes that besides the embarrassing situation of Zhuang language and Zhuang text, it also has something to do with Wuming, a remote school.

The name of Wuming County was also changed by Lu Rongting.

It was originally called Wuyuan, and has been set for more than 1000 years.

Lu Rongting, who claimed that he was “famous in the world with martial arts”, changed it to Wuming.

During the Republic of China, the place names changed a lot, but the original setting of a county remained unchanged and only changed its name with the idea of a powerful villager.

Wu Ming should be the only one.

Lu Rongting’s reputation in both the Kuomintang and the Communist Party was not very good, and it is a miracle that the name of Wu Ming can continue to this day.

A few kilometers ahead, I met the K2000 milestone of National Highway 322.

I rode through Rui’an, Zhejiang Province, and felt that all of them were in the south.

It was 2000 kilometers away from here.

Go to Zouwei Town ahead.

The word “wei” in Jiangsu and Zhejiang originates from the polder fields in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River during the Spring and Autumn Period.

Today, there are many places with the word “wei” in Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shanghai.

Some people read “yu”, which is of course wrong.

The word “Wei” is similar to the word “Xu” in Guangdong and Guangxi, and its pronunciation is the same.

It refers to a market.

In the north, it is called fair, in Guizhou, in Yunnan, in Guangxi, and in Guangdong.

When riding in Hainan last year, I met many market towns called Xuxu, because there were many Guangxi immigrants in Hainan in the early years.

From the feeling of cycling, the ruins, markets and streets are all on the top of a gentle slope, while the early polder fields were surrounded by an embankment higher than the ground, with the sound and meaning of “enclosure” and the shape of “ruins”.

In fact, the original sound and meaning are the same.

With the migration of Yue people, they are spread thousands of years apart, thousands of miles apart, but the connection between them still exists.

For the local people, Zouxu and Zouxu are the same stage in Zouxu Square.

There are bronze drums of Zhuang nationality, and the columns are decorated with Zhuang brocade.

Looking from Zouxu Town to the north, you can see a line of peak clusters.

Not far from the town, when you cross the Qingshui River Bridge, the peak clusters along the road begin to enrich.

As the direction of the national road changes, they show different attitudes, as if you have arrived in Guilin..
