Chaozhou, like Guangzhou Beijing Road, has treasures underground, and a stone bridge in Song Dynasty was dug up.

Chaozhou Ancient City is also full of treasures underground, so today I will introduce you to the treasures dug up after the renovation of the ancient city. It is called "Peace Bridge". Chaozhou Taiping Bridge is located on Taiping Road, Chaozhou City. It was originally a bridge over the Haogou before the state administration, but it was submerged underground due to historical development. In December 1987, when the post and telecommunications bureau buried the underground cable, it was found that, according to the on-site investigation and measurement by the material department, it was a 3-hole stone beam bridge with a slight arch in the middle. The bridge is 22.5 meters long and 12 meters wide. The bridge deck of each hole is composed of stone beams with a length of about 7 meters, a width of about 0.7 meters, and a thickness of about 0.4 meters. The perimeter of the pier is made of stone masonry, and the middle is filled with sand. The restoration of the thousand-year-old bridge has not come easily. Taiping Bridge is located at the north end of Taiping Road in Chaozhou Ancient City, with a north-south orientation. It is a stone beam bridge with four piers and three holes, with a total length of 25.5 meters. According to research, the Taiping Bridge was built in the Northern Song Dynasty, more than 100 years earlier than the Guangji Bridge in Chaozhou. It is the oldest existing bridge in Chaozhou. In modern times, due to changes in river channels and road reconstruction, the Taiping Bridge was gradually buried underground. Although it was discovered when the wires were laid a long time ago, until recently, Chaozhou renovated the pavement at the northern end of Taiping Road, and found a partial bridge of the Taiping Bridge that was buried. In order to protect and revitalize cultural relics, Chaozhou launched the protection and utilization project of Taiping Bridge and the intangible cultural heritage display and utilization project. With the efforts of many experts and professional technicians, the style of this thousand-year-old bridge has been reproduced. The nearby Paifang Street is also worth visiting.
