Chengyang "Wind and Rain" covered bridge which is protected as a valued relic. It was built in 1916 in a wood-and-stone architecture. It is 76 meters long and 3.7 meters wide with 5 stone piers covered by wooden board. On the bridge, there is a long corridor as rain shelter, and there are benches on both sides as well for people rest. On the five piers, there are five four-storied Dong styled tower-like double-eave pavilions. The whole bridge is in the shape of a crescent moon and is just like a golden phoenix spreading the wings before flying. The pavilions on the two ends are like magnificent palaces with pyramidal roofs with gourd-shaped top. The Chengyang Bridge is not only full of Dong flavor in the shape, but also has superb craftsmanship in the structure. Meanwhile, it is beautiful and magnificent and demonstrates the high level of the Dongs' architectural design.
