Baogong lake city was formed after the Ming dynasty. In the fifteenth year of chongzhen (1642) in the Ming dynasty, the Yellow River broke through and the city of kaifeng, a sinner of dashui. As the flood waters receded, some waters formed in kaifeng. In the 21st year of the qingdaoguang reign (184), kaifeng was again flooded by the Yellow River. Two times the city formed a large water city, including the contemporary baogong lake. It is also said that baogong lake was formed when kaifeng people excavated the bricks and tiles of the old kaifeng government buried under the sediment of the Yellow River to rebuild their homes. It is said that on the stage, the dark face and the eyes of the sky curved like a bright moon, from this clear baogong lake.
The evolution of the name of baogong lake has a process. In 1841, when the flood of qingdaoguang (1841) fell back, a large area of water was formed in the southwest corner of the city. Kaifeng called the large area of water a water pit. Later, the area of the water was gradually reduced, forming two puddles. The small water pit in the north is the location of kaifeng government in the northern song dynasty. The great water pit in the south has no name. There is a road between the two puddles and a bridge in the middle of the road, connecting large and small waters. When the northern song dynasty, kaifeng has a river, called near, from northwest to southeast through the kaifeng south of the city, from the basic shape of bao lake, the lake star northwest - southeast direction of belt, covering the kaifeng near the place. In qing dynasty, the southwest corner of the waters, the nap, have the effect of water storage and drainage, connected to the east of small water and river, east to the city water discharge outside, shed HuiJiHe. In the city map of kaifeng in the early period of the republic of China, bao gong was marked as the southwest lake, and the original baofu pit was gradually reduced. Later, the people of kaifeng gradually called the two large and small waters "baofu pit". In the 1970s, there was no small water area in the north, forming the east, west, south and north streets of baofu pit. Modern kaifeng people have two interpretations on the name of bao fu keng. The second is bao zheng's kaifeng government, which is under the "pit" and is rebuilt
It's on the north side of the pit.
There was no road between the west lake of baogong lake and the middle lake. In 1971, all units in the city volunteered their labor to fill the pit and build a road, commonly known as "yingbin road". In 1980, the municipal government named the road around the baogong period as baofukeng middle road. Modern kaifeng people feel that the word "pit" is not elegant, hence the name of bao gong lake. In July 1992, in order to develop tourism, baofukeng was renamed as baogong lake, and the roads around baogong lake were also renamed as baogong lake east, west, south, north road and baogong lake road. 1997 baogong lake road was renamed yingbin road.
