Xijieba is located in the middle part of the county seat of Anyuan. The street is about 150 meters long in irregular path. According to historical records, the place was used to be an alluvial dam and it was built into street in winter of 1933. It was called Watermelon Dam because that a variety of watermelons were planted locally and it was renamed as Xijieba for harmonic tone. Standing on the south end of the street, people can see buildings of Hakka architectural style in picturesque disorder. There are a lot of ancient shops such as antiques, haircut, day classes and Chinese medicine in the street. The street, with orderly and clean cobblestone pavement and quaint stilted buildings, has a fascination for tourists.
