Qingyan Ancient Town is located at the southern rural area of Guiyang. It was originally built in the year 1378 during Ming Dynasty It is one of the most famous ancient towns in Guizhou. Qingyan Ancient Town is not large, with an area of only 3 square kilometers, but it has ancient Buddhism and Taoism temples, Catholic Church and Christ Church, which is rarely seen within China. Dating back to the beginning of the Ming Dynasty (1368--1644), Qingyan town was built for military reasons. Because of its geographical location, Zhu Yuanzhang, the first emperor of Ming Dynasty established it as a station for transferring military messages and to house a standing army. Through years of modification and repeated restoration, Qingyan Ancient Town has gradually become a distinctive ancient town with cultural features of Ming and Qing Dynasties. Due to the local geology, this town was built completely of stone. Visitors can see spectacular city walls built right on the cliffs with vast rocks, which divided Qingyan into inner and outer towns. There are four gates in the wall facing north, south, east and west. Outside the four gates, there were originally eight stone tablets, which were considered the symbols of Qingyan Ancient Town. Of the eight, three remain with delicate sculptures on each surface. The most famous one is called Zhao Lunli Baisui (longevity) Fang.
