It was built in the first year of Song Yuanfeng, when Mengcheng County magistrate and secretary Cheng Wang Jing presided over the construction, and invited Su Shi, who is known as one of the eight great masters of Tang and Song dynasties in the history of literature, to write "The Ancestral Hall of Zhuangzi", which is included in In "The Complete Works of Su Dongpo", there is a remnant monument. During the Tianshun period of the Ming Dynasty, the original Zhuangzi Temple was submerged by floods. In the eighth year of the Wanli period of the Ming Dynasty, that is, 1580 AD, the then magistrate Wu Yiluan was in the east gate of the county seat, and the Zhuangzi Temple was rebuilt in the courtyard of the county cotton and linen company. The reconstructed Zhuangzi Temple is magnificent and spectacular. There are buildings such as Xiaoyao Hall, Dream Butterfly Tower, Roller Roof, Tao She and Yuchi Bridge. In the fifth year of Chongzhen in Ming Dynasty, that is, in 1632 AD, Li Shifang, the then magistrate, rebuilt Xiaoyaotang and built Wuxiao Pavilion and Guanyutai, and engraved "Zhuang Zhou's Hometown" in front of the ancestral hall. Demolished during the Cultural Revolution, the current temple was rebuilt in 1995.
The Zhuangzi Temple is located on the north bank of the Guohe River in Mengcheng. It is a garden-style building group built to commemorate a generation of sage Zhuangzi. It is open to the public free of charge. It is an excellent place to understand and pay tribute to Zhuangzi.
