The Iron Bridge of Yellow river, also called the first bridge over the yellow river. The bridge lies in front of Jin Cheng Pass, at the foot of Bai Ta Mountain. Earlier there were many floating bridges over the Yellow river, mainly the Zhen Yuan floating bridges. These bridges were extensively used for over 500 years and were finally retired in 1909 and an Iron Bridge was built. The Zhongshan Iron Bridge is 234 meters long and 7.5 meters wide with six piers and five bridge openings, with five arched steel-structured girders spanning over its top. The bridge had an expiry date in 1989, and since then about 10 new bridges have already been built nearby. There are plans to construct even more bridges to replace the Zhongshan Iron Bridge, but none can replace its great historic value and contribution of 80 years. The visitors now cherish the place as a cultural relic and an icon of history. Highlights and must sees include:

  • Monuments built around the bridge
  • Statue of the Yellow river mother
  • Ancient silk road
