residence of Yu Simin, an educationist of Shandong province.

Known as the “Mount Li” in antiquities, the city situated beneath the Thousand Buddha Mountain
was named Licheng (namely the city of Li). Licheng as a county established early in the Han
Dynasty enjoyed a high popularity and influence beyond that of Jinan before the Song and Ming
Dynasties. Licheng became a district within the jurisdiction of Jinan when the later was afterwards upgraded
to prefecture level. In the Ming and Qing Dynasties, Licheng developed to the premier county of Shandong
province. The county government located east to the old city center extended to connect Xianqian Street and
Xianhou Street in the south and north, Xiandong Alley and Xianxi Alley in the east and west respectively. It
was erected in coalition with the seat of Shandong Governor to constitute an unique view related to the local
official system. While the date of establishment was obscure, it received reconstructions during the Ming and
Qing Dynasties in consequence of chaos caused by war and conflagration. In 1949 it was transformed into
the dormitory compound of provincial government.

A demolition conducted in the beginning of 2003 erased the areas including Xianxi Alley, Xianqian
Street, parts of Houzai Gate and entire Zhonglousi Street. Fortunately Jiangxi Guild Hall in Wanshougong
Street has been retained and repaired, which composed the building group of Wuyue Temple with the Guandi
Temple and Jiuhualou Restaurant. The archaeological excavation took place in Xianxi Alley before the
widening project has discovered several stone statues that were made since the North Wei Dynasty. Lying in
the east of Xianxi Alley, the former site of Jinan prefecture (today’s CPPCC Shandong Provincial Committee)
was said to be the heartland of Kaiyuan Temple in the Tang Dynasty. Now the alley has been displaced by a
broad and straight street which is lined on either side by business premises.
