The Sanjiang Bridges reflect the ethnic diversity and architectural ingenuity of the Chinese people. These bridges are covered pathways that are artistically designed pavilions and balconies. The erected bridges act as shelter for the people in harsh weather conditions. The name of the structures is “Wind and Rain” simply because it protects the Dong people from wind and rain.
The bridges are constructed using wood and stone. A visit to the insides of the bridge will make you think that the bridge is a house in itself. The bridges have kiosks designed by people who have a background in architectural design. The parts of the building are brilliantly placed to support the structure. When you look at the whole building through its entrance, you wouldn’t think that you are entering a bridge at all.
