Yenping Old Street (Xiluo Old Street)

The buildings along Yengping Street are Baroque architectures passed down from Japanese colonial era. Tourists may find buildings on Yenping Old Street different from other places. Due to a huge earthquake in 1935, the government decided to use abundant elements of ancient Chinese art décor to remodel the buildings. The combination of old-time design and contemporary artistic style of the 1930s makes the rural landscape in Yenping so special. Strolling along the street, visitors may find several representative buildings to visit, such as Jin Yu Cheng Bell Tower, Yushan Corridor, Luoyand Dental Clinic, and the Luoyang Culture & Education Foundation.
