I went by bus and got off at Hu Xueyan's former residence. I could see it through the road. It was 20 yuan from the back door. It was not expensive. It was very big inside. I heard that it was expensive. After buying tickets, I could see four words of Hu Qingyu Tang on the front door. I didn't quite understand the specific meaning. Generally speaking, I heard that it was a plaque given to Hu Xueyan by the former emperor. The most interesting thing is that there are two fewer words left, and then they enter. They recommend looking from east to west. The east side is the dormitory of some of his concubines and little daughters-in-law. Hu Xueyan lives in the west side of the imperial garden. When he comes to the imperial garden, he feels that the rockery is very interesting. It's very cool inside. It's a good summer resort. He doesn't want to come out. The imperial garden is a wonderful one.
Having read Hu Qingyutang's name in Hefang Street, we can feel Hu Qingyutang's status and respect for this businessman. With this feeling, I decided to go to Hu Xueyan's former residence. Entering the garden will make you feel worthwhile. It was a step-by-step view, full of admiration for the wisdom of the landscape architects and craftsmen at that time. It is a good place to understand the humanities and appreciate the landscape.
Hu Xueyan was a Red-top businessman in Fujia in the late Qing Dynasty. Its former residence is located in the east of Hefang Street and Dajingxiang Historical and Cultural Reserve in Hangzhou. In the former residence, there are such pavilions and pavilions as Zhiyuan and the thirteenth floor. Chiyuan's rocky, ingenious, pavilions and pavilions are everywhere strange. There are also calligraphy and stone carvings by Dong Qichang, Zheng Banqiao, Tang Bohu, Wen Zhengming and other famous artists in the former residence. The two well-crafted red wooden sedan chairs in the sedan hall are worth appreciating. It is suggested that the commentator introduce Hu Xueyan's life and the architectural features of his former residence. Otherwise, it just feels magnificent and exquisite!
With the Wangjiang Pavilion, Drum Tower, Hefang Street and Royal Street of the Southern Song Dynasty, it belongs to a large scenic area, which can be arranged together with the playtime plan. Walking along the riverside footpath on the east side of Zhonghe viaduct, after Wangjiang Road, the main entrance is on Yuanbao Street, which is actually a stone lane. Tickets are 20 yuan. Before the restoration, there were more than 100 houses, which were rebuilt by the government through the relocation of houses and drawings from the late Qing Dynasty to the early Republic of China. But it does not prevent us from experiencing the brilliance of the richest man of the year. On the day of the visit, the smoke and rain were hazy and charming. Above, let's see for ourselves.
Hu Xueyan (1823-1885), a shrinkage of Lion Forest, is a famous Guangyuan, Zixueyan, Jixi native of Huizhou, a well-known Red-top businessman in modern China and an entrepreneur of the late Qing Dynasty who is rich but enemy country. In the eleventh year of Tongzhi reign of Qing Dynasty, Hu Xueyan, at its peak, spent a huge sum of money. It lasted three years and occupied 7,200 square meters with a building area of 5,815 square meters. Hu Xueyan's former residence, which combines Chinese and Western culture, is beautiful and skillful. It is the first luxury house of the giant businessmen in the late Qing Dynasty, whether in architecture or furniture, furnishings and materials. It is said that Hu Xueyan was well versed in the meaning of "hiding but not revealing". Traditional residence symmetrical layout, the central axis area for the living room hall, by sedan car hall, the main hall (that is, Baishi Tower), four halls; the right side is the living courtyard, by Rongdong Courtyard, Summer Palace, Mandarin Hall, Qingya Hall, and Paradise hall, Happy Hall for wives and concubines to live; the left side is the Chi Garden, corridor connected, Quchi connected. Suggestion : Visits can be made in the order of left to middle and right to visit Hujia living area, guest area and garden landscape area.
The most successful representatives of businessmen in modern China, pavilions and pavilions, have their own characteristics. They must walk slowly and see more, with beautiful scenery. Hu Xueyan (1823-1885), a young Shun Guan, later Guangyuan, Zixueyan, Jixi, Anhui Province. At the beginning, the bank was set up in Hangzhou, and later entered Zhejiang Provincial Governor's Curtain to collect money and equipment for the Qing army. In 1866, Zuo Zongtang assisted Zuo Zongtang in establishing Fuzhou Shipping Bureau. After Zuo Zongtang was transferred to Governor of Shaanxi and Gansu Province, he presided over the Bureau of Shanghai Mining and Transport Bureau, borrowed foreign debts for Zuo Da, raised military salaries and ordered arms, and relying on the power of Hunan Army, set up Fukang Yin in more than 20 provinces, and operated the business of traditional Chinese medicine, silk In 1872, Qianzhuang Branch in Fukang and the north and south of the Yangtze River. Because Zuo Zongtang was a good assistant, he once gave Jiangxi alternate road and yellow coat, which is a typical official businessman. In 1874, Hu Qingyutang Xueji National Drug Number was established. At that time, wars were still frequent, epidemics were prevalent, and their medicines were very popular. Since then, Hu Guangyong's personal book "Avoid deception" inscription, based on the principle of good faith. Hu Qingyutang has become a large-scale and comprehensive preparation of Chinese patent medicines, which has played a role in promoting the development of Chinese medicine. In 1882, Guangyong set up a silk factory in Shanghai in an attempt to monopolize silk trade and provoke foreign businessmen to be jointly rejected. Because the customs maritime transport is in the hands of outsiders, it can not be transported directly. The following summer, they were forced to sell at a discount and lose more than half of their money. Rumors of bankruptcy were rife. In November, local businesses collapsed, property was sold and bankruptcy was declared. Next, the Qing court ordered the dismissal and inspection, and strictly pursued the crime, which ended in depression. In the Qing Dynasty, there were Hill Po in the north and Hu Xueyan in the south.
For this rich businessman in history, he came to beautiful Hangzhou only to know. Well, admitting that I had little knowledge, as soon as I entered the door, the lofty hall showed his luxury immediately. From the kitchen seven-star stove, to the bedroom, to the rockery hollowed out in the small garden, a businessman was ups and downs, and his life was rich enough. At least he succeeded, and his whole life's home allowed tens of millions of people to visit.
The old residence of Hu Xueyan, a Hongding businessman, is near Qinghefang. The house design is luxurious and unique. Occasionally, I heard the commentator say that it was built with 32 million silver. At that time, the Qing government's annual financial revenue was only 52 million silver. Hu Xueyan used to be very popular for a while, but he declined rapidly under the attack of businessmen both inside and outside, which makes people feel sad.
Close to a delicious noodle restaurant, I stopped by after eating noodles. I didn't hold much hope. I didn't think there were many people at the door. I didn't think there were many beautiful things after I went in. At least one can see the life of a Red-top businessman in that era, and also find that his house and wealth at that time were much better than most people in modern times. There is a small single servant room with a receiver, which is specially used to talk to the owner. There is also a cellar, which is used for hiding treasures. It only opens the door and cannot go down to see it. In a word, there are many things in it, which are worth visiting.
