Chao Zong Street of Changsha City
Hunan Province

潮宗街西起湘江路,东至黄兴北路(原北正街),是长沙城仅存的4条古麻石街之一,原长511米,今存约400米,宽9米,为旧时最宽的街道。潮宗街原名朝宗街,因临城门朝宗门而名。朝宗,朝拜祖宗之意。因旧时街口聚居着许多挑河水卖的脚夫,终日街头淌满河水,“朝”遂演化成“潮”。潮宗街又名草场门正街,明清时是长沙县署和临湘驿站所在地,行人往来,车水马龙,旅店业特别发达。旧时潮宗街是出潮宗门达湘江河运码头的必经之道,因而成为米业、堆栈业的集中之地,尤以米市闻名于世。

这里是长沙最古老的街道,街道轮廓在战国时期就以成型,至今无大变动。历经演变,遗留诸多历史文化古迹。
