In the Tang Dynasty, the prophet of Islam Muhammad sent four disciples to China to preach. Two of them stayed in Quanzhou to preach and settled and were buried in Lingshan after death. The locals call it the Holy Sepulchre, and it has a great influence in the entire Islamic world. When Zheng He's eunuch (Hui nationality) went to the West in the Ming Dynasty, he passed through Quanzhou and came here to pay respects.
The Holy Tomb of Islam is the tomb of two disciples of the Holy Sect who came to Quanzhou from Arabian voyages in the seventh century. It is the oldest and most intact Islamic holy site in our country.
The transportation is convenient. Take the bus 🚌: No. 7, 19, 23, 25, 31, 44, K502 and get off at the Holy Tomb Station, walk tens of meters, there is an archway at the intersection, and walk tens of meters to the gate, the visitor center , Tickets are 15 yuan.
This is the testimony of ancient Quanzhou’s foreign exchange activities, integrating cultural connotations
If you are not a history and culture lover, but just ordinary tourists, then you probably won't go. Of course, I don't recommend going. But for lovers, this is a good place. The national key cultural relics protection units and the preliminary list of world heritages are no problem. The three and four of the "four sages" who went to China to preach are buried here. Their tomb is also the main attraction here. There is a pavilion in the middle of the cemetery. In the pavilion, there are two granite-carved rectangular tomb cover stones. The base of the tomb cover is engraved with lotus petal patterns, which is simple and unpretentious, setting off the noble character of the two sages. Every Islamic holiday, a large number of Muslims come here to worship. Like the tombs of Muslim sages in Guangzhou and Puhading Cemetery in Yangzhou, in addition to the tombs of the "four sages", there are also many tombstones of other Islamic sages. Another "wind-moving stone", which moves when the wind blows, but cannot be pushed by manpower, is said to be one of the three wind-moving stones in Fujian Province. Muslims regard it as a relic of peace from Allah.
This cultural value wins, and it is a national key cultural relics protection unit. The scenery is relatively ordinary, and the scenic spot is Lingshan on the side of Donghu Street in Quanzhou. Today, it happened to work nearby. I passed by and took a look. There are a lot of food on the street at the door. You can walk in and have a look. You need to buy a ticket for this attraction. The ticket is not expensive.
Fairly easy to map and find the bus routes that pass by 灵山. Aside from Islamic graves, there are other Chinese graves as well. Come here after going to the Maritime museum or the Islamic Cultural Ce...
