Waterfall of Dieshuihe and Taijiqiao Bridge

The waterfall leaps down over a 46-meter-high precipice at the outlet of the Dayinjiang River, 1.5 kilometres away in the west of the county town, diffusing vapour all around. In sunshine, a rainbow rises from among the steaming vapour. There is an inscription of four Chinese characters - Jian Sao Feng Yan, carved on a cliff beside the waterfall, in which the calligrapher compared the waterfall to "a sword that sweeps away the dense miasma". Arching the river before it leaps down is the famous Taijiqiao Bridge constructed by Zhang Wenguang, the leader of the Tengyue uprising in 1911 responding to Dr. Sun Yat-sen's call.
