Wudang Palace, located at No. 300 on the north side of the west section of Dongguan Street, was originally named Zhenwu Temple. In the third year of Xuande of the Ming Dynasty (1428), it was rebuilt by the prefect Chen Zhen. In the forty-third year of Jiajing (1564), the Anhui native Geng set up a "Wudang Palace" in Zhenwu Temple to pray for blessings. In the third year of Xianfeng (1853), the Wudang Palace was almost destroyed by Bingxuan, and only the main hall stood tall. During the Guangxu period, Xu Shaoheng, the Haizhou branch, rebuilt it. According to Wang Gui's "Zhenwu Temple Stele Records": "The Zhou is a wall, the middle is the hall, the front is the Xiandian, and the outside is the door; inside the door is the paper furnace on the left and the stele pavilion on the right; beside the hall is the corridor, and the back is the bucket pavilion. , The left and right sides of the pavilion are chambers, and they are all in the well. The material is good, the system is strong, the statue is golden color, and the Yindanbiya, which is dazzling. "It can be seen the scale and style of the Zhenwu Temple.
In the twenty-eighth year of Guangxu (1902), the Wudang Palace opened the "Yidong School". Today, the Wudang Palace has set up a "Taoist Exhibition". The mountain gate hall displays the beliefs, etiquette, gods, characters, classics, organizations, literature and art of Chinese Taoism with pictures and texts, and introduces the four famous mountains of Chinese Taoism (Wudang Mountain, Longhu Mountain, Qingcheng Mountain, Qiyun Mountain). Under the eaves of the nave, a horizontal plaque of "Zhenwu Hall" is hung, and the statue of Emperor Zhenwu is enshrined in the hall. The two walls are decorated with pictures introducing Yangzhou Taoist Fulushen. Under the eaves of the main hall, there is a horizontal plaque of "Wudang Palace" with statues of gods.
There are many small scenic spots on this historic street of Dongguan Street for everyone to visit. Among them, the Wudang Palace is a spot that was discovered by accident. I thought he was free for everyone to visit, but after entering, I saw that the ticket price was 12 yuan. After crossing the high threshold, I saw a door god standing here quite burly. If you want to visit well, I feel that Dongguan Street really needs to be visited for at least one morning.
Wudang Palace is in Dongguan Commercial Street, next to Dongguan Food Court. This is free for locals, and 8 yuan for tickets outside. But when I arrived at the door, I didn't see a ticket collector, so I went in and went shopping. This is the palace of Taoism.
In April this year, Yangzhou still caught up with the tail of spring. Guangzhou is almost entering summer. Walking on the historical and cultural street of Dongguan Street is bustling and noisy, but the Wudang Palace at No. 300 Dongguan Street is relatively quiet.
There is a couplet in the mountain gate with the immortal mansion of Tiantongshou.
In the Qing Xianfeng period, the Taiping Army captured the Wudang Palace in Yangzhou City and was destroyed by fire. Only the middle gate and the apse of the Shanmen Temple are preserved. The apse is a rare Ming Dynasty architecture inherited in Yangzhou City. Therefore, the apse is also the focus of our visit. There is also an ancient ginkgo in front of the palace. tree
The palace is not big and people can walk slowly
No. 300 Dongguan Street, in the third year of Xuande Ming Dynasty (1428), Wudang Palace was originally called Zhenwu Temple, which was used to pray for blessing and rain. Later, Zhenwu Temple was gradually replaced by the name of Wudang Palace. The Wudang Palace sits north facing south, facing Dongguan Street. The four characters "Wudang Palace" can be seen on the forehead of the door. In the twenty-eighth year of Guangxu of Qing Dynasty (1902), the Wudang Palace opened the "Yidong Academy", which was a school modeled after the great scholar Dong Zhongshu of the Han Dynasty. This school was the predecessor of Yangzhou Middle School, where talented people came out in large numbers.
