That day was the Dragon Boat Festival, from Loudi to Shuangfeng County, traffic jams for a long time, until noon to Shuangfeng County, and from Shuangfeng to Heye Town by bus for more than an hour, then by motorcycle for a few minutes to Fuhou Hall. Ancient flags fluttered in front of the hall, a bit of the atmosphere of the ancient barracks. There is also a large pond full of lotus leaves in front of the hall. The plaque on the gate is inscribed with the residence of the brave and brave Hou. It was on the plaque of the room in the middle of the door that the rich house was written. This is a large symmetrical rectangular mansion. The middle Avenue divides the mansion into two halves. There are green lawns on both sides, ancient brick houses around it, all kinds of old furniture in the house, and the introduction of Zeng Guofan. The ancient trees in the back hill are towering, overlooking the house brothers panorama, the moon-shaped lotus pond in front of the hall, the surrounding fields, the remote mountains, the scenery is very beautiful. If there had been no traffic jam in the morning, my son and I could have visited Baiyutang. Now we have to stay for the rest of the day. In the afternoon, we took a bus from Lotus Leaf to Shuangfeng, and took 150 yuan to Loudi High-speed Railway Station in Shuangfeng to catch up with the high-speed railway. Originally, the local people told us to charter 120 yuan on the bus, but the bus conductor contacted the bus, which was 30 yuan more. Fortunately, an hour's taxi arrived, just in time to catch the high-speed railway, which is worth it.
The scenic spot is still worth visiting. It's a very good way to drive by oneself. Baiyutang is far away. It's more convenient to drive by oneself. Fuhou Tang back mountain must climb, not high can be overlooked, the mood has a different flavor! ___________ The lecturer is more expensive, but please come to understand Wen Zhenggong more easily. You can also rub off without spending money. Haha. Three or four hours is enough for the ticket package to be completed.
The handsome character flag flutters with the wind, and the simple quadrangle tile house presents the life points of the great people in medieval times. The two camphor trees in the past 200 years can not be embraced together. The old dragon and tortoise statue in front of the library tells us the glorious history of one hundred years, loyalty and devotion.
Zeng Guofan's former residence is located in Shuangfeng County, Loudi. Its representative buildings include Fuhou Hall, Baiyutang Hall, Doctor's Hall, Golden Hall and so on. At the same time, there are Qiujin's former residence and Caichang's former residence Guangjiatang. Among them, Fuhou Hall is the core scenic spot, and it is also the only "rural Hou Fu" preserved in the whole country. Fu Hou Tang, also known as Yi Yong Hou Di, was built in Tongzhi, Qing Dynasty (1865 A.D.). It is made of earth, stone, brick and wood, and has a corridor style, including Banyuetang, Gateway, Babentang main building, Gongji, Park Ji, Fangji three library buildings, Lotus pond, Bird Crane Tower, Chess Pavilion, Save Park Pavilion, and Simyun Hall built by Zeng Guofan himself in Xianfeng seven years. Although the whole building belongs to Hou Fu's scale, it is simple and generous. Although there are carved beams and painted buildings, it is not magnificent. It basically reflects Zeng Guofan's intention to build a house "the house is not beautiful, but it needs a variety of bamboo and cypress, and more vegetable gardens, that is, to occupy four mu, but also to do no harm to himself". From a distance, Fuhou Hall seems to be sitting in an enclosure, surrounded by beautiful natural environment, dense trees on the back hill and towering ancient trees. In front of the door is a relatively open flat land, with rivers flowing eastward in the flat land, surrounded by mountains and peaks. On the front door hangs a red plaque with four golden characters "Yi Yong Hou Di". There are a wide variety of exotic flowers and weeds in the courtyard. The hall is just across the inner turf. The "Fuhou Hall" inscription on the red bottom is written by Zeng Guofan. The three libraries in Fuhou Hall are the essence of the whole Fuhou Hall. They contain about 300,000 volumes of books of all kinds. They are the largest private libraries in modern China.
Both Fuhou Tang and Baiyutang are worth visiting. Because of its mountainous location, inconvenient traffic, it is suitable for self-driving travel, and requires high driving skills of drivers. However, the family culture and the building geomantic omen and house design art are still worth learning.
A good place is worth a visit. Tickets are a little expensive and explanations are expensive.
He is well educated and taught strictly by his family. If you study, you will find that Babentang and many other things are worth learning.
