Old Suhe Town

This is situated 4 km northwest of LiJiang city. In this village, there is a small market square which is also paved with smooth coble stones. There is a river that flows down a very old stone bridge. The organization and layout of this village is very similar to that of the Old Town. In fact, this village is the former city center of LiJiang and has a history of more than 1000 years. Before the Naxi people migrated south, they worked and raise their family here. On the north of this village, lies a very ancient temple, that is the Dragon Spring Temple, which is built along the bank of a clear large pool.
