[One of the only two mausoleums of foreign monarchs in China is also the only Mausoleum of a different king with royal descendants in the mausoleum-guarding village. National Key Cultural Relics Preservation Unit) My hometown is near here, so I came to play very early. At that time, there was no fence. Even the curtain of the East King was only a simple mound of earth. I heard the old man said that the burial objects were smoothed by the burglars in the distant times. In recent years, it has been renovated into a scenic spot. Tickets can be obtained free of charge with identity cards. Here we can learn about the situation of Suludong King's mission to the Ming Dynasty and his illness and death on his way back. Of course, there are also some contents of the formation and development of Shouling village and Islam. In addition to the imperial mausoleum, there are imperial pavilions, archways, mosques, cemeteries and other ancient buildings. But what impressed me most was the stone statues, stone tigers, stone lions, stone horses, stone sheep and so on. When I was a kid, I liked to ride and play. Nobody cared about it in those days. Now, of course, it's uncivilized. The renovated scenic spots are often visited by sporadic tourists and occasional tour groups on weekends. Re-visit to the original place, all kinds of buildings and cemeteries were built later, can not help but lament the great changes in these years. There's nothing interesting in Texas. If you come here, you'd better take a look.
The Tomb of the East King of Sulu Kingdom, located in Beiying Village, north of Dezhou City, Shandong Province, buries a king, his princess and two princes of Sulu Kingdom. It is one of the only tombs of two foreign monarchs in China (the other is the tomb of the Boni King in Nanjing), and it is also the only foreign monarch mausoleum in China where the descendants of foreign royal families guard the tombs. The Tomb of the Eastern King of Sulu is a testimony of the traditional friendship between China and the Philippines. The Tomb of King Sulu is a well-preserved Tomb of the king in the early Ming Dynasty. In 1956, Dongwang Tomb of Sulu State was listed as the first batch of key cultural relics protection units in Shandong Province. On January 13, 1988, it was announced as the third batch of national key cultural relics protection units by the State Council.
It was found that the mosque was being renovated and not allowed to enter, but sneaked into the nearby mosque. It was found that it had become a residential residence, but there were still chapels, Princess Sulu and her son's graves. There were many people and children on the grass shrine playing in the pavilion to protect nothing but cattle, sheep and cocks could still be seen everywhere in the spirit-guarding village. This is a super tasty place, I love it! Especially people who love photography. It's a great place to shoot.
The Tomb of King Sulu is the only Tomb of a foreign king in China. It is also the only foreign mausoleum with a mausoleum village in Chinese history. The ancient Sulu Kingdom is located in the present Sulu Islands of the Philippines, including the three main islands of Brazil, Sulu, Davidawi and several other islands. Ancient Sulu was an emirate of Islam. The country is divided into three princes, the East King, the West King and the Tung King. In the Ming Dynasty of China, the ancient Sulu Kingdom began close friendly exchanges with China. Despite the convenient transportation in Dezhou city, many ancient stone statues in the scenic spots have been damaged. Although some improvements have been made in recent years, they still need to be developed and protected, which is worth visiting.
The ancient Sulu kingdom, located in the Philippine Sulu Islands, is an Islamic emirate. It is divided into three princes: the East King, the West King and the Tung King. The East King is the most respected one. In the Ming Dynasty, the ancient Sulu Kingdom began close friendly exchanges with China. In the fifteen years of Yongle in the Ming Dynasty, three kings of the Sulu Islands, Baduge Horn of the Eastern King, Maharagmatine of the Western King and Baduge Horn of the Tung King, led a group of 340 family members to form a friendly mission to China for a friendly visit and received a grand reception from Emperor Zhu Di of Yongle in the Ming Dynasty. The three kings stayed in Beijing for 22 days happily. They sailed south along the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal and returned home. The Eastern King was tragically ill among the returnees from Shandong Province. On September 13, 1417, he died of illness in Anling Town, north of Dezhou.
Visits are free with ID cards and tickets. Stone statues live on both sides of the Shinto in front of the tomb. Entering the cemetery is an exhibition hall. It introduces the tribute and death of King Sulu to the Ming Dynasty. It is helpful to understand the history of the tomb. The tomb itself is not big. Behind a stone tablet is a mound of earth. In the main tomb dozens of meters away, there are three accompanying tombs of Princess and prince.
Passing through Dezhou, I visited King Sulu's tomb for free. The tomb is not big, but it has a prominent historical significance.
That ID card can be converted free of charge tickets, very good!
Dezhou's only ancient tourist attraction! There's nothing near here! The protection is not very good! But the cultural value is great!
Knowing a period of history and witnessing the long history of friendship between China and Philippines, this is the only Tomb of a foreign king in China, with descendants guarding mausoleums and forming villages. I hope that she can further promote friendly relations between China and Philippines.
