-Zhangbi underground castle
The Zhangbi Fortress encompassing the ancient town of Zhangbi Cun is an amazing feat of architecture and engineering. This lesser known historical attraction has many kilometers of tunnels in three layers under the town which were designed and built as a military defense position. The fortress has thick ground walls surrounding the town and high walls along both sides of the main street. This would allow residents to close gates in the high walls allowing intruders to access only the main street between the gates.
