Some time ago, I went to Ningbo, Zhejiang Province to travel, and I saw such a special building in the center of Ningbo. In general, this is a Chinese classical building, but when you look closely, there is a western-style attic on the roof that has to attract attention.
Originally, this special building of "Chinese and Western" is the Drum Tower of Ningbo. Although the Drum Tower is located in major cities in China, the famous city Drum Tower includes the Drum Tower in Beijing, the Drum Tower in Nanjing, the Drum Tower in Xi'an, etc. However, I am really the first time I saw the style of the City Drum Tower in Ningbo.
It is said that the drum tower of Ningbo was built in the first year of Tang Changqing. It has a history of more than a thousand years. It is the symbol of officially establishing the state and establishing the city in the history of Ningbo. Ningbo Drum Tower is the only remaining ancient city building site in Ningbo, and it is also one of the ancient buildings protected by national cultural relics.
In the 19th year of the Republic of China, the Firefighting Federation invited the municipal government to rent all the houses as clubhouses. In the same year, they built a cement steel square square observatory and an alarm clock in the middle of the three-storey wooden structure of the Drum Tower. Set up a standard clock, four sides, one for the convenience of the public time, but also can report fire.
Yu, then the Drum Tower in Ningbo has become a special look of the "Chinese-Western combination". It is also the most beautiful city of China, and it has become one of the most famous cities in Ningbo. Every visitor who came to Ningbo to visit the Drum Tower was impressed and unforgettable.
