I probably don't enjoy history as much as the other commenters, but I felt that the Mufu palace was slightly disappointing. I thought the walks and the architecture outclassed whatever there were insi...
Loved the gardens, buildings ... copied after the Forbidden City
We loved exploring all the nooks and crannies of the buildings, gardens and water features of this Mansion built 500 years ago, destroyed by an earthquake and abandoned during the revolution. It was r...
Crowd thins an hour before closing when the big tours depart, a good time to visit
Large domestic tours with loud speaker systems destroy the peacefulness necessary to appreciate this place (as has become true just about everywhere in China these days), but the groups depart well be...
Lots of buildings -- no evidence of anyone actually living here
There is very little to do in Lijiang, so visiting this place is an okay endeavor, but we spent an hour or so dodging tour groups and wandering in and out of structures that appeared to be about 30 ye...
Spent a morning here and it was so worth it. It was much more intimate and assessable than our visit to the Forbidden City in Beijing. That might also be down to the fact that we did this on our own ...
Mufu, as its name suggests, is the residence of Lijiang Mu's toast in the past. It combines the architectural style of the Central Plains in the Ming Dynasty with the crafts of the Bai and Naxi nationalities, fully reflecting the elegance of the Central Plains architecture in the Ming Dynasty, while retaining the simplicity and simplicity of the Central Plains architecture in the Tang and Song Dynasties. The rhyme of the wind, while sitting west to the east, the interior of the Yugou, the layout of the living water, and the spirit of the traditional culture of the Naxi people, even Xu Xiake who viewed the world, praised: "The beauty of the palace, In the case of the king."
In fact, the Naxi people did not have the Han family name. After Zhu Yuanzhang established the Ming Dynasty, he was far away from the Lijiang Naxi Tusi Ajia Ade in the northwest of Yunnan Province, and the rate was from the returning to the court. Therefore, Zhu Yuanzhang was greatly appreciated, and his surname was removed and he was given a "wood" surname. From then on, the traditional father and son of Naxi was changed to the Chinese name.
Mu's toast in order to maintain the noble name of its ruling group, in the various sectors of society to promote the "official name of the wood, the people's surname and the system", and Mu's toast is passed on from generation to generation, the father and son pass on, through the Yuan and Ming The Three Dynasties and the Qing Dynasty, spanning 470 years of the 22nd century, the wooden house covers more than 100 acres in the heyday, and there are nearly 100 buildings, which is the heart of the ancient city of Lijiang.
The whole Mufu shade is in the embrace of the Lion Rock. It is in the head of the whole ancient city. The west river is surrounded by the southeast and west sides of the river. The ancient city streets and the folk houses are built by the river and built according to the canals. The drainage water is connected with the official residence and the folk house. The fan-shaped pattern of the wooden house surrounded by the residential buildings is a harmonious atmosphere of the officials and the people.
The wooden house under the Lion Rock in the ancient city of Lijiang can overlook the entire Mufu architectural garden and the ancient city of Dayan. Lijiang Mufu is the palace of Lijiang Mu's toast in Lijiang, which is equivalent to the "Forbidden City" of Lijiang.
You can reserve a half-day time to visit Mufu. It is still quite big. You can take the water with you. You can drink in the free reading area of the Royal Garden. When you are tired, remember to sit down and drink a glass of water. The photo was taken on the Lion Rock after the summit. It is very tired but the landscape is very good. Don't forget to climb!
There is the Forbidden City in the north and the Mufu in the south. Mufu is a splendid architectural art garden, which fully reflects the elegance of the Central Plains architecture in the Ming Dynasty, while retaining the quaint and rough flowing charm of the Central Plains in the Tang and Song Dynasties. Towards the east, the layout of the Yugou in the Fuzhou, the layout of the long flowing stream, also sees the spirit of the Naxi traditional culture.
Mufu was completed in 1999. It is still far away from now. When you walk in, you will find that every place is very magnificent, and the colors are gorgeous, and there are still obvious differences with the monuments. However, the momentum is still very shocking. The
mufu building group sits west to the east, and "the atmosphere is welcoming the sun." The four-character book "Tianyu Liufang" on the wooden archway is the homonym of the "Reading to Go" in the Naxi language, the very intelligent Naxi people.
Mufu Palace-style buildings, consisting of Zhongyi Shipaifang, Yimeng Hall, Wanjulou, Hufa Hall, Guangbi Building, Yuyin Building, Sanqing Hall; each side has a hall, a loft, a street building, a home, There are 162 houses in the official residence and the promenade.
Stepping in from the main entrance, you can see the Chamber of Deputies, the wide council, the place where the toast meets, and the very imposing buildings.
is the study and library building of Mufu, each with different branches. The
Guardian Temple is also known as the Post-Consulate Hall. It is the hall of the Tusi House, the back door of the Guangbi Building, and the Yuyin Building is the place where the sacred ceremonies and songs and dances are held. The Sanqing Hall is the spirit of Taoism. local.
When you want to go here, you still need a little physical strength. In the end, you can climb to the top of the Lion Rock and take a panoramic view of the Mufu. However, people who have high anti-go can still get a little asthma.
When Mu's toast built his own palace-style wooden house, he was seated in the theory of the Central Plains Feng Shui, which was not as far as "sitting north and facing south", but toward the sun and the east. The oriental genus, the sun and the wood are the cults in the teachings of Naxi Dongba, and the surnames of the Naxi people given by the emperor. Therefore, the idea of wanting to get the "wood" gas makes the building of Mufu take the direction of sitting west to the east.
Later, I heard another one: She said that there is another reason why Mufu chose to sit in the east and west. When the Ming Dynasty, Zhu Yuanzhang built Nanjing, and Nanjing was in the east of Lijiang. So, because of respect, he chose Towards the east.
On the way to the back garden, I met several boys who were about the same age as me, and heard one of them say that [every time I came to Mufu, I was half dead]
I heard that I had to I want to see the whole picture of the ancient city of Lijiang, and I want to see the Yulong Snow Mountain. In this way, the stairs that should be taken are still quite high. Since they are coming, let's go.
Mufu Palace is located in the southern part of Lijiang Ancient City. It is the residence of Lijiang's Tusi from ancient times. The architecture combines the style of the Central Plains of the Ming Dynasty with the techniques of the Bai and Naxi people. It is a splendid architectural arts garden. Nowadays, Mufu Palace is a landmark of the ancient city. It not only attracts numerous visitors to visit, but is also the production set for TV dramas “Legend of Mu Mansion” and “The King of Money”.
