Facing the Hanjiang River, Ma Chao, one of the five tigers of Shu State in Tiandang Mountain, was buried here. Ma Chao is the closest person in history to assassinate Cao Cao. However, no one is perfect, and his personality defects and poor health make him unable to fulfill all his gifts in the end.
Ma Chao's tomb is very close to the Temple of Marquis, northwest of the Temple of Marquis, and also near the national highway. Machao Tomb is about ten minutes'walk from the gate of Wuhou Temple. Machao's tomb is divided into two parts, the first part is the ancestral temple, and the second part is the grave. The middle is separated by the Hanhui Channel and linked by the Wind and Rain Bridge on the Channel. You can walk across the windy and rainy bridge to the courtyard where the grave is located. This is an independent courtyard with a stone inscription on the front of the tomb: the tomb of Ma Gongchao, General of the Western Expedition of the Han Dynasty. Machao Tomb is north-south, rectangular and strong. The tomb is 56 meters around the base and the height of the tomb is about 3 meters. When the Huiqu River was built around 1935, Ma Chao's tomb was opened. After opening the top of the tomb, it was found that the pattern and masonry were both of Han Dynasty, and accorded with the historical records. Therefore, it is undoubtedly the tomb of Ma Chao.
Ma Gong was a childhood idol, but Ma Chao's tomb was slightly shabby. After buying tickets, he found that he could go around the back lane. The local government did not pay attention to it. Dust accumulated on a thick layer. There were a group of morning exercises aunts on the corridor bridge. They had the right to gather popularity.
Ma Chao is one of Liu Bei's "General Five Tigers". Ma Chao's tomb is situated two kilometers west of Mianxian County, beside 108 National Highway, adjacent to Wuhou Temple in the west. It is one of the important cultural relics of the Three Kingdoms. There are not many visitors here, and it is very simple and quiet.
Simple and pure, it feels good. The commercial atmosphere is very weak.
Historical and cultural heritage, beautiful environment, is worth visiting.
Machao Tomb in Hanzhong is Machaozhen Tomb, located 3 kilometers west of the county town, beside 108 National Highway, Jiguang Village, Wuhou Town, about 1 kilometer away from Wuhou Temple. It is a key cultural relic protection unit in Shaanxi Province. It was once a primary school of Magong Temple in the past few years. Ma Chao was one of the five tigers in Shu during the Three Kingdoms period, ranked Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, ranked third, with strong martial arts, known as "the heroes of the Three Kingdoms count Ma Chao". After Liu Bei became emperor, Shengma Chao became a general on horseback, leading Liangzhou to pasture animals and guarding Yangping Pass (now the old town of Mianxian County).
Due to the time, the tomb of Ma Chao will have time to look closely in the future. It doesn't feel very big and there are few tourists. It seems that the local government does not attach importance to it. Many scenic spots in Mianxian County are the same. There are no parking places, and there are cameras to take pictures. It feels like many places in the north are trapped in a strange circle of grasping small enlargement. Think about it carefully, it's a kind of expression of the rat's short-sighted eyes! _________
Compared with the bustling Wuhou Temple across the street, Ma Chao's tomb is cold and quiet. On the contrary, it also has an atmosphere of nostalgia. There are hardly any ancient buildings left here. The statue of Ma Chao in the ancestral hall shows a strong local flavor.
