The Tongcheng County was built in the ninth year of Daye in Sui Dynasty(613). In the fourth year of Wanli
in Ming Dynasty(1576), it was rebuilt into a brick city on the site of Sui Dynasty. The county has a history of more
than 1,400 years. The outer part of the county has two-layer city defense system with the mountain and water barrier and the artificial defense facilities. The internal layout of the county town is both a product of the dual influence
of Guanzi's idea of city planning based on local conditions and the ancient concept of creating resembling objects,
and a typical example of incorporating the ancient system of capital city planning into local city planning, focusing
on the city's military defense and political edification functions. At the same time, it also provides inspiration for
modern urban planning.
