The Ziyang old street is located in the scenic spot of the ancient city wall of Linhai.

Named after Zhang Borui, or Ziyang Master of Taoism, the street is 1080 meters long and four to five meters wide, and is the longest and best-preserved of its kind in China. The street, lined with various time-honored stores, stands out for its folk culture and historic heritage. The old architecture on Ziyang street is structured in a strict layout, with dual timberwork, black roofs, delicately engraved doors, windows, beams and columns. As an important part of Linhai National Historical City, Ziyang Street epitomizes its long history by being a prosperous business area in Taizhou.
