The cemetery originally covers an area of 25 acres, but now it is 6 acres. There are 13 construction facilities in the park. The flowers and trees are lush, the ancient cypresses towering into the sky, the stone monuments are lined, the green bamboos spit out green, the sweet osmanthus fragrance, the palaces are simple and elegant, and the statues are vivid and vivid. The south is the shrine. The central axis of the shrine is followed by the mountain gate, worship hall, and xian hall from south to north. On the main hall, there is a plaque inscribed on the official book "Caihou Temple" of Emperor Dezong of the Tang Dynasty. There is a statue of Cai Lun in the hall. On the right wall is painted the "Cai Lun paper" production process flow chart, and on the left wall is painted the mural painting of the thanksgiving picture that Cai Lun was named Longting Hou in 114 AD. On both sides of the central axis of the Cai Lun Temple, there are ancient buildings such as the Bell Tower, Drum Tower, Wing Room, Theatre Building, and modern calligraphy master Yu Youren wrote the original cursive script for Cai Lun Temple.
The tomb of Cai Lun is located 200 meters south of Longtingpu, Yangxian County, Shaanxi Province. The tomb area covers an area of 5 acres and the tomb is 7 meters high. There are three stone steles in front of the tomb. Cai Lun’s tomb and shrine is a national key cultural relics protection unit.
Get off the expressway from Longting Pavilion and visit Cai Lun Temple. Tickets are 30 yuan, and free for soldiers over 65 years old. Cai Lun was an eunuch in the Eastern Han Dynasty. He was named Longting Hou for his invention of papermaking. He was forced to commit suicide because of his involvement in court struggles. He was later rehabilitated. Longting was his fief and suicide place, so he was buried here. Cai Lun Temple has a plaque inscribed by Tang Dezong and Yu Youren, and a tombstone inscribed by Zhao Puchu. Next to Cai Lun Temple is the Cai Lun Paper Culture Museum, where you can watch handmade paper.
I have been to Cai Lun's tomb for ten years. At that time, there was only a courtyard and a huge tomb. Now some facilities have been added. The entrance fee of 30 yuan is not expensive. There are raw materials for papermaking in the past, and the staff demonstrates the papermaking process.
[Scenery] Not bad, [Interesting] OK [Value for money]
