Rainbow Bridge Introduction

In Qinghua is the Rainbow Bridge, often touted as the most beautiful covered bridge in the country. Though it was built 800 years ago, during the Southern Song Dynasty,
the bridge stands as sturdy as ever, and is used by the villagers every day.
To get to the bridge, o­ne must pass through the oldest lane in Wuyuan.
Built during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), the lane is so narrow that people must turn to the side when they meet o­n the way through. The walls o­n both sides are covered with thick, rain-streaked moss, while grass and wildflowers creep out of every nook and cranny.
Measuring 140 meters in length and seven meters in width, the Rainbow Bridge is an architectural masterpiece that includes five corridors and six pavilions. Locals also refer to it as the Corridor and Pavilion Bridge. The bridge remains in perfect condition, surviving even a major flood in 1954. According to my tour guide, the Rainbow Bridge has always managed to stay above the water level thanks to a nearby stone dam which helps flood control, regulates silts, ensures the survival of the river's aquatic life, and protects the bridge from torrential waters.

Rainbow Bridge Features

Similar stone dams were built at other parts of the river in ancient times, but the locals didn't realize how important they were until they destroyed them.
About o­ne and a half kilometers downstream there used to be a wooden bridge that was constructed in a unique shape. The bridge was also protected by a stone dam, and the river at that point was flanked by of centuries-old woods. Spurred o­n by their fancy for the modern and new, the villagers tore down the old bridge and replaced it with o­ne of cement, and demolished the dam. But in 1999, a major flood struck the area, carrying huge deposits of sands downstream, destroying the ancient woods and dramatically narrowing the river.
