【雲上嶺南】Huizhou: The ancient wells are scattered throughout the streets and these cultural relics express homesickness


Walking on the ancient streets in Huizhou, we can always find some old wells with unique and different shapes. In the past, people used to live by the wells and would share a well with their neighbors. In the traditional agricultural-based society, apart from providing water for daily life, wells adopted various cultural features, becoming a symbol of belief for people to pray to for the harvest and good weather. With the advance of modern society, although a large number of wells do not provide water any more, they have started to become objects synonymous with 「home」 and a carrier of the homesickness felt by many, recording the memories of those who have lived alongside them.
