There were many cities on the Silk Road. Because of the age, coupled with the desert sand erosion and the threat of war, many ancient cities have disappeared. The ancient city with good luck still has a ruin, and the city of Lockyang is one. Lockyangcheng, formerly known as Bitter City, is located on the Gobi Desert, about 70 kilometers southeast of Guazhou County, Gansu Province. It is also one of the well-preserved Hantang ancient cities in China. It was first built in the Han Dynasty and about 1 in the east of the city of Lockyang. There is a piece of Tutalin at the kilometer, which is called the Ta'er Temple by the locals. This is the site of the Great White Pagoda in the Ta'er Monastery. In the Tang Dynasty, the gelatin Kaiyuan Temple was recorded. According to the "Da Tang Western Regions", Tang Xuanzang once said that it is more than half a month. According to historical records, the Ta'er Temple is a place where the local officials of the Guazhou and the Song and Yuan Dynasties and the people performed religious sacrifices during the Tang and Five Dynasties. It can be seen that during the Han and Tang Dynasties, it was very lively. From the aerial view of the ancient city, you can see that the main city is rectangular, 470 meters long from north to south and 430 meters wide from east to west. In addition to the main city, there are 4 Yucheng. There is no existing house, only one tower with a height of more than 1 meter, lining the adobe and five small towers. Historically, the city of Lockyang is a large ancient city on the throat of the Silk Road.

Surrounded by the vast expanse of the desert Gobi, overlooking the large sculpture of "The Son of the Earth", it becomes a spectacular Gobi cultural landscape. The "Child of the Earth" sculpture is 15 meters long, 4.3 meters high and 9 meters wide. It crouched on the ground and fell asleep on the Gobi Desert in Hongshanpo, Guazhou County, Gansu Province. The rough texture of the sandstone, the calm and heavy brown-red tone of the stone itself, and the cultural connotation of the work itself are all blended with the vast Gobi situation. In terms of creative concept, the baby itself should be a tender, authentic, delicate life. When the baby sculpture image no longer appears with normal mass and common smooth materials, instead of replacing the coarse gravel stone with red sandstone, the work There is a shocking expression of vitality and respect for life itself, and at the same time it has a strong visual effect. The plain nature of the situational integration is always the main face, which is where the traditional Chinese art spirit lies.

Lockyangcheng, the civilized specimen of the Silk Road Changyang City, the civilized specimen of the Silk Road Yangyang City, was once an important city in the Tang Dynasty, and Xuanzang was going to set foot on the west. road. Nowadays, most of the buildings in the city have been inundated by the infiltrating quicksand. Basically, there is no such thing. Only the northwest corner of the city has a round tall building with arched door openings and east-west connections. It is said that Kaiyuan was also found in the city. Tongbao coins, Tang Dynasty brick and tile artifacts. Winter in the western Gobi is cold and chilly. Entering the area of the Lockyang City Site, you can stand on the side of a well-preserved turret, and look at the ruins of large and small ruins. Think of Wang Changling's sentence: "Qinghai Changyun dark snow mountain, lonely city looking at Yumenguan." When we must have the same experience with us at this time. Walk to the ruins of the city wall, the hustle and the ancient shacks that are far away from the hustle and bustle, scattered in the wilderness of the vast sky, added a few more Shen Hongxiong. Near the red willow piles, a clump of valerian grass, a cluster of camel thorns, dotted between the yellow sand dunes, looks so rich and lush. The construction scale of Lockyangcheng is twice that of the old city of Jiaohe in Xinjiang. In the existing ancient city ruins in China, the city of Lockyang can be compared with Jiaohe Ancient City and Gaochang Ancient City. The old city standing in the Gobi, how many memories of the winds of the millennium? Standing on the site of the wind-eroded city wall, looking far away, except for the lonely city that is about to fall into the mud, only the Gobi desert. In the sun shining in the east, the sighs of Canghai Sangtian will not come out.

The Ta'er Temple, the starting point of Xuanzang's classics 1 mentioned in the Ta'er Monastery, people immediately think of the Ta'er Temple in the suburb of Xining, Qinghai, which is famous in China and Southeast Asia. Little known is that in Guazhou in the Hexi Corridor, there is also a Ta'er Monastery. The name of the temple of the Ta'er Monastery is passed down from the local shepherd population. In fact, the original name is Ashoka Temple. Although it is now a broken wall, yellow sand. Today's Ta'er Monastery site, surrounded by red willow, camel thorn, valerian and other sand plants swaying in the wind, the remains of the walls, courtyards, soil platforms, towers, rubble and other buildings, silently telling the once prosperous history. The area where the Ta'er Monastery is located is relatively well preserved and consists of two parts: the outer wall and the inner main courtyard. In the main monastery, there are mountain gates, main halls, large round towers and small round towers along the central axis from south to north. From the scale of the site, the Ta'er Monastery was a magnificent and magnificent large Buddhist temple and a relatively large Buddhist center along the Silk Road. Now you can see the bases of several large Buddhist temples. Although these ancient plaques have long since quit silently on the stage of history, the years are long, but they are like the monuments of the history of the seat, still standing on the Silk Road, silently telling people the distant land of the original In the past, it shows the historical glory of the Silk Road. Deliberately came here to photograph the sunrise. Against the backdrop of the spectacular morning sun, the snow covered by the years on the Qilian Mountain in the distance can no longer be seen. Only the site in front of it stands in the wind, which is solemn and desolate.
