Long history salt production
Zigong is a collective name for two salt wells in Ziliu well and Gong well. It’s famous for the well-salt and is known as China’s “Millennium Salt Capital”.
As early as the Eastern Han Dynasty Emperor (AD 76-88), the ancient working people built the first salt-well in the Zigong area, named ”Fuyi Salt Well”.
In ancient, during the Ming Dynasty Jiajing (1522-1566), the well- salt produced by Zigong was the royal tribute by its natural, healthy, white, and delicious.
