China Longchuan Water Street 水街 (823)
Anhui Province

水街:

      龙川溪水两岸民宅鳞次栉比,是典型的徽州古村落枕山面水的格局,胡氏族人因以两岸河堤为街,故俗稱其为水街。两岸河堤各有一个非同小可的名字---龙堤、凤街!“龙堤”衍生于河东的龙山,对面的“凤街”脉接西面的凤凰山而得名。在结构上,龙堤中间纵铺石板代表“龙脊”,两侧鹅卵石垒铺,代表“龙鳞”。对面的凤街用白凤凰麻石横铺,代表凤凰的一片一片羽毛,两街道合称“龙凤呈祥”。水街还有一层奥妙,虽然水街两堤呈逐步递降之势,但是龙堤总是高于凤街,这体现了封建社会男尊女卑的伦理观念。从夫妇纲常说,龙为乾,代表男子,凤为坤,代表女子。男具阳刚之气,故龙堤在河之阳,女子阴柔和婉,故凤街在河之阴,过去称男女完婚为“乾坤已定”,又认为“夫为妻纲”,“阴阳顺、夫妻和、家道成”,龙堤设置比凤街高,正体现了“阴阳顺”的宗旨。
