On the south side of Daming Lake, I actually saw an Erlang Temple. In ancient mythology, it is said that the god Erlang is Yang Jian, a mixed blood of humans and gods, with infinite power, boundless spells, casting beans into soldiers, knowing seventy-two changes, having a third eye at the top of his forehead, and a summoning beast roaring dog beside him. Yang Jian was the nephew of the Jade Emperor. He used to fight against the gods to break the mountain to save his mother. He is the most powerful god of war in our mythology. He is loved by the general public. There are many Erlang temples everywhere. Due to the epidemic, Erlang Temple was not opened. It is said that it was renovating inside during this time. Then I won’t see it this time. Then come see it next time. It was first known that Erlangshen was obtained from Journey to the West. This is a niche attraction.
Erlang Temple is located in Daming Lake Scenic Area, next to Furong Bridge, there is a lake, there is Liumingju, and the environment is good. Inside is enshrined a statue of the true Lord Erlang. The god Erlang belongs to the northern water god in Taoism, and is the god of justice who subdues demons and demons. The legendary mural story of Erlang God is painted in this temple.
It just happened to be decorated, so I can’t go in and have a look! Look forward to it……………………Look at the dusty appearance, I hope it will open soon
On the north bank of the road opposite the water street, there is a small temple that faces south, named Erlang Temple. There are three bays, the hard mountain rises from the ridge, the front is out of the building, the door lintel is decorated with colored paintings, and there is a couplet on the pillars: "The name of the holy virtue will last forever, the Weiling Zhaogan town will last forever", and the waterfront behind the temple is a veranda. Entering the temple, there is a statue of Erlang God Yang Jian sitting at the door, but the statue does not have a white face, three eyes wide open, wearing armor, holding a bow in the right hand, holding a three-pointed two-bladed spear in the left hand, majestic, majestic, aura, on the left foot. Squatting down to help him cast the snarling dogs. On the top of the statue is a horizontal plaque with black background and gold characters "Tianmu Shenwei". Yang Erlang is an important figure in Chinese myths and legends. He is a hybrid of humans and gods, with infinite power, boundless spells, and knowledge of seventy-three changes. On his forehead, he is born with eyes, holding a three-pointed and two-edged gun, and there is a screaming dog beside him. The master is a real person named Yuding, one of the twelve immortals of Kunlun School. Yang Jian’s blood is noble. “Journey to the West” says: Erlang God’s mother is Yudi’s sister Yao Ji, Si Fan married a man named Yang in the mortal world, and their son is Yang Jian. The Jade Emperor was furious because Yao Ji married a mortal, and she pressed her under the Taoshan Mountain. Later, Yang Jian "smashed Taoshan with an axe" and rescued his mother. The Jade Emperor named Yang Jian the "Heroic Zhaohui and Revealing the Spirit and Blessing King", and the name "Qingyuan Miaodao True Monarch". But Yang Jian said to the Jade Emperor that he "heard not the announcement." The one who stands on the left and right of the god Erlang is the brother Meishan six masters who became righteous on the way to defeat him. They are Kang Rong, Zhang Fei, Yao Ming, the fourth Taiwei Li Xiong and the second generals Guo Shen and Zhijian. The statues are hideous and hideous, with sturdy backs, weapons in hand, and murderous aura. On the walls around the temple, there are murals of the legendary story of the god Erlang, namely Yaoji descends to the earth, Lizhu the seven monsters, cast beans into soldiers, split the mountain to save his mother, and Erlangdanshan. In ancient times, in people's minds, the god Erlang was the incarnation of justice. He caught demons and controlled the water to benefit the people. Therefore, many places built temples along the water for sacrifice. Daming Lake has a large water area, and the construction of Erlang Temple has placed people's wish for good weather. Erlang Temple was originally a historical building on Huiquan Temple Street on the bank of Daming Lake. Huiquan Temple Street is close to Daming Lake and is easily flooded. People built temples here to pray for the god of Erlang to frighten dragons and eliminate floods. There was a saying in Jinan in the past: "Donggengdao, Xigengdao, Wangfuchi Erlang Temple", this refers to the four streets in the old city of Jinan. Among them, "East Gengdao, West Gengdao" refers to the two streets on the east and west sides of Zhenzhuquan; "Wangfu Pond" is between Xigengdao Street and Furong Street; "Erlang Temple" refers to Huiquan Temple Street. Before the expansion of Minghu Lake, the current Meixi Bridge stretches to Daming Lake Road in the south and Huiquan Temple Street to the lake in the north. Historically, the name of Huiquan Temple Street has changed several times: Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty (1773) "Licheng County Chronicles" stated: "Yue Erlang Temple Street (Old Chronicles: Two corners northwest, as'Erlang Temple Lane')"; Guangxu Ren Yin year (1902) "Complete Map of Streets and Alleys in Provincial City" contains: Erlangmiao Street in the south and Huiquan Temple Street in the north, separated by the intersection of Gezi West Street and Qiuliuyuan Street; 1926 "Renewal of Licheng County Chronicles" "Geographical Research": "Yue Erlang Temple Street", and the attached drawings indicate that the southern section is Erlang Temple Street and the north is Huiquan Temple Street; the 1934 "Jinan Municipal Government Urban Survey Report" contains: Huiquan Temple Street, Erxian Street; "Jinan City History" contained: Huiquan Temple Street. by
