There are three ancient locust trees standing in front of Cao Xueqin's former residence. These three ancient locust trees are well-known in the capital. According to the dry and rough view of these three ancient locust trees, they should be Yuan locust. In the past, one of the songs about Cao Gong's former residence in Xiangshan area was sung like this - "the ancient locust tree in front of the gate, the bridge flowing wild celery and hemp". Now there are three ancient locust trees standing in front of the memorial hall, one of which is the famous "locust with crooked neck" on the east side of the gate. I visited Cao Xueqin's former residence to see these three ancient locust trees. More detailed introductions were not found. Asking the staff of the memorial hall only confirmed the three ancient locust trees. There was no other information. In early summer, the huge crown of the ancient locust tree is shady, and the former residence is "the western suburbs of Lujie are different and quiet", simple and elegant. Despite the lack of the original mountain atmosphere, but still no loss of idyllic mood.
Another scenic spot in Beijing Botanical Garden, botanical garden ticket 5 yuan, Cao Xueqin Memorial face ticket, although currently under repair, but also can visit. At the entrance of the National Day Memorial Hall, a large-scale propaganda campaign of the Dream of Red Mansions was also carried out. Redologists broadcast lectures through videos, promoting the Dream of Red Mansions and Cao Xueqin as a rare opportunity to attend lectures free of charge at the entrance. In addition, remember closing at four o'clock, go to the Botanical Garden first to bonsai garden (free), then to Cao Xueqin Memorial Hall (free), and then to the far Cherry Valley (free), National Day Botanical Garden chrysanthemum and roses in full bloom, enjoy it well.
It was the first time that I went to the Cao Xueqin Memorial in Beijing Botanical Garden. In the early spring, there are not many people and the old trees have not yet grown leaves, so the characteristics of the building can be seen clearly. The bony beauty of ancient trees is as lingering in my mind as the literary beauty of Cao Xueqin. This trip is worth it!
Cao Xueqin Memorial Hall, the theme memorial hall built by New China in memory of Qing Dynasty writer Cao Xueqin, author of "Dream of Red Mansions". There are three places in the whole country - "Beijing Cao Xueqin Memorial Museum is located in Zhengbaiqi Village, Sijiqing Township, Haidian District, where Cao Xueqin lived in his later years. It opened on April 22, 1983, and Fu Jie inscribed a plaque "Cao Xueqin Memorial Museum"; Nanjing Cao Xueqin Memorial Museum is located in Wulongtan Park, Nanjing; Liaoyang Cao Xueqin Memorial Museum is located in the courtyard of Dongwu Mansion, Dongwu Enpei House, Xiaoshijiekou Road, The first.
The former residence is not big, the environment is quiet and there are not many tourists. The content of the exhibition is not very rich, but the production is elaborate. The background of Cao Xueqin's life is introduced, from which we can get a glimpse of the creative track of the great work of Dream of Red Mansions. The former residence is situated in Beijing Botanical Garden, with ancient locust trees in the sky and dense shade. Take a quiet rest here, I feel so sad!
Cao Xueqin Memorial Museum is located in Beijing Botanical Garden without extra tickets. It can be found not far from the park. It is a small, quiet and clean courtyard, simple and elegant, with professionals'explanations and written instructions hanging on the wall, embellishing the botanical garden with humanistic interest.
