Additional Information


The hometown of Laotze is located in Zhoukou's Luyi County. Within the tourist area, ancient buildings such as the Taiqing and Mingdao Palaces are preserved alongside monuments to Luyi County's great ethicists and philosophers, along with relics like the golden epitaph “Inscription Memorializing the Continuation of Taiqing Palace." With the two ancient buildings as the primary sites of importance, this serves to give visitors a true and full image of Laotze’s hometown. Taiqing Palace is located at the place Laotze was born. Visitors to this site will be able to see that Laotze was a mortal man and ordinary individual like the rest of us. In this way they will be better able to understand Laotze’s life. The Mingdao Palace was built in the second year of the Tianbao Emperor of the Tang Dynasty (AD 743). It was the site where Laotze taught Taoism. Inside the scenic spot, the Laojun (Old Gentleman's) Platform—which is also known as Shengxian (Ascending Spirits) Platform—is said to be one of the places from which Laotze cultivated his knowledge of the Tao.
