 Plateau Vertical Wheel-type Water Mill

This standing vertical wheel-type water mill is the crystal of plateau working people's wisdom and the most beautiful building in Tu's villages. People generally think water mill was invented in the Jin Dynasty and related to Du Shi's invention of Shuipai (a kind of hydraulic blower device in ancient times) In front of us, there is a simple and unadorned house built with clay and timber, and a huge wooden water wheel with the diameter of more than 5m stands in the deep pool under the house. The back of the water wheel faces the water channel behind the house. When water runs down, it will drive the water wheel and thus form a beautiful waterfall.The water wheel drives the mill chess (axis + fixed mill), and the mill chess drives the passive millstone in the wooden house to turn, and the positive millstone hung on the crossbeam with four hide ropes works with them together to grind out fine and white flour. "Water mill era" is an unforgettable and beautiful memory of Tu people, which has fully presented Tu people's character of loving life, diligence and simplicity and their wisdom.
