2323 Wind rain bridge counterbalance construction.  ***Explanation***

2323 Wind rain bridge counterbalance construction. ***Explanation***

This represents the typical style of method of bridge building that the Kam people have done for hundreds of years. Many of the new wind rain bridges employ cement and modern construction methods but this bridge that dates from the middle of the 20th century was built with traditional materials. Inside of this bridge are paintings from the Cultural Revolution depicting scenes of that period.

It is said that the wind-rain bridge can protect Yanglan people from the natural disaster.
