According to historical records, Dayun Temple was built in the Zhenguan period of the Tang Dynasty and was destroyed by Bingxuan in the early Ming Dynasty. The new temple was built in the west gate during the Shunzhi period of the Qing Dynasty. The first archway at the west gate of Shangzhou, there used to be an ancient theater on the opposite side, but no longer exists. This ancient archway is the only ancient wooden archway in Shangzhou city, and it has a high cultural value. After consulting the Qing Dynasty Luo Siwen's "Continued Shangzhou History" and other materials, experts concluded that the archway is at least 250 years old.
It is of great cultural value and is the theoretical basis of Wu Zetian's governance in the Tang Dynasty. Dayun Temple is a special monastery created in a special age due to a special event; the creation of this monastery is related to a special woman, and she is the empress Wu Zetian. In 690 AD, Wu Zetian, who had been a queen and empress dowager, wanted to be emperor and was struggling to find a suitable reason. With the help of Luoyang Baima Temple monk Feng Xiaobao and others, I found a copy of "The Great Cloud Scripture", which contains words such as "Milele was born as a queen, and the world is majestic". They used these few words to promote the "Yi Shi Revolution", saying that Wu Zetian was "Mie Lei born, the contemporary Tang Dynasty master Yan Futi". So she changed the Tang Dynasty to the Zhou Dynasty, became the female emperor, ordered the construction of the Dayun Temple in the two capitals, recited the "Dayun Sutra", and promoted the "Monarchy Granted by God". All states and counties across the country built Dayun Temple for a while. At that time, Shangzhou belonged to the "Gyeonggi Land" of Chang'an, Xijing, and the Dayun Temple built was quite spectacular. It faces the Danjiang River in front and Jinfeng Mountain at the back. It is half inside the city and half outside the city; the one outside the city is called Shangsi, and the one inside the city is called Xiasi.
It's free, it's the Shangluo City Museum, how can it become two attractions.
Okay, this place is good. Shangluo is a good place, and the most beautiful Qinling is Shangluo.
Shangluo Dayun Temple Dayun Temple is located in the city of Shangluo and was built in the Tang Dynasty (690 AD). The existing Dayun Temple covers an area of 8,000 square meters, and the four main halls remain basically the original appearance. It is now a provincial key cultural relic protection unit.
