Additional Information

Introduction

The Nanhai Temple, commonly known as the "Bolo Temple", is the only remaining one of the four ancient sea temples in my country. It is also an important historical site of ancient foreign trade in my country. In ancient times, ships sailing to sea or ships from afar had to pass through this ancient wharf located at the Nanhai Temple. Many merchant ships stopped here to offer sacrifices to the temple and pray for smooth sailing. Therefore, this place has also become a historical witness to the prosperity of Guangzhou's maritime trade. A large number of precious historical relics. Hidden deep in the stone archway of "the sea does not raise waves", the Nanhai Temple is complete in structure and magnificent, with the head gate, the ceremonial gate, the ceremony pavilion, the main hall and the apse. The complex corridors on both sides of the Yimen Gate and the east and west corridors in front of the main hall were rebuilt in the Qing Dynasty. Since the Sui and Tang Dynasties, there are many stone carvings in the temple. Because the emperors of all dynasties have sent officials to the temple to hold rituals, and left many precious inscriptions, the temple is also known as the "Southern Forest of Steles". It is worth mentioning that there is also a sun bathing pavilion in the temple, which has been a good place to watch the sunrise at sea since ancient times. The "fuxu bathing day", one of the eight scenic spots of Yangcheng in the Song Dynasty, refers to this place. Every year from the 11th to the 13th of the second lunar month, the Nanhai Divine Festival, also known as the Polo Festival, is held here. It has a history of more than 1,400 years. There is a folk saying that "you travel to Polo and marry a wife". It is very lively and has many cultures. You can watch the show.
