The Twin Dragon Bridge of Jianshui County

5 kilometers from the west of Jianshui county town, Yunnan province, the Twin Dragon Bridge was constructed at the juncture of the Lushui and Tachong Rivers.

The bridge got its name because the two rivers looked like dragons. The northern 3 arches of the Bridge were constructed in the Qianlong Years of the Qing Dynasty, and the rest 14 arches were built in the 19th Daoguang Year. The Bridge is also known as the 17-arch Bridge.
