Visit Gongchen Bridge (拱辰桥)
Stretching over the Grand Canal in east-west direction, Gongchen Bridge marks the south terminus of the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal. It is the largest stone bridge in Hangzhou.
Hangzhounese cherish deep affection for this bridge. From some sense, it stands for hometown, sweet home and can always evoke fond memories.
Gongchen Bridge is also steeped in history and has royal association. “Gongchen” suggest “salute the emperors”. Each autumn, a fireworks display will be hosted, attracting visitors by thousands. In 2013, this activity was banned, partly due to the accidents for some spectators were hurt by the fireworks, partly because it is a waste of money.
Gongchen Bridge sprung into being in the 4th year during the reign of Emperor Chongzhen in the Ming Dynasty (1631). In 1888, during the reign of Emperor Guangxu, it went through a complete restoration. At 98m long and 16m high, it consists of 3 arches. It borders Qiaoxi Historic Block to the west and Yunhe Culture Square to the east. This area is one of the top three cultural and entertainment centers along the Grand Canal (Hangzhou section). 6 state-of-the-art museums, boutique restaurants, unique shops and time-frozen alleyways await you.
