关裕年guanyunian19. Having spent 15 years working in Yaozhou, Shaanxi Province, the greatest achievement was to visit the former residence of Yaowang, a famous doctor in Tang Dynasty, and to hold an unshakable position in the history of Chinese medicine in our country. 55 years ago, in the last century, I graduated from Beijing Air School in 1965 and was assigned to the Institute of Aircraft Strength in Yao County, Shaanxi Province. I lived for 15 years and then moved back to Beijing. In the past 15 years, most of the spare time in Yao County is invested in the mountains and waters of Yao County, where Yao Wang Mountain is the place we often go. In that era, no substitute car, only by walking, foot measurement, step by step, to the top of the mountain. Because that time is not touristy, and there is no development company packing decoration, so a desolate Yaowang Mountain randomly we licking, no tickets. There, I often enjoy the famous Sun Siqian's "Qian Jinbao Yao" carved in stone. A few years ago, I went to Yaowang Mountain again, the last time it was 50 years, the "Wutai Mountain" monument is still there? As the name is the same as the Wutai Mountain in Shanxi, the pictures of articles I published in the Aeronautical Archives have also raised similar questions, which always surround and linger in my mind. At Yaowang Temple, this stone is still there, according to a divination old man standing next to say, from the Song Dynasty, this mountain is called Wutai Mountain, is the West Wutai Mountain, later in memory of Sun Siqi, changed to Yaowang Mountain. Revisiting the old place, I specially take a photo, with the photograph of 50 years ago and now at the same time to publish, as my medicine Wang Sun Siqi admiration. The medicine Wangshan is still worth writing well. The culture, cultural relics and history here have been handed down for 1600 years. What a wonderful and surprising thing Sun Siqi's hand planted pine and cypresses still live forever.

舒儿When talking about Xiangshan, everyone will think of Beijing's famous Fragrant Mountain. Today we went to Tongchuan Xiangshan in Shaanxi. Although it is not as famous as Beijing's Xiangshan, the scenery is really beautiful. It is the dojo of Guanyin Bodhisattva. It is also the body of Guanyin. I hope everyone can go to see the beauty of Fragrant Mountain after understanding. Tickets are 40 yuan, and you can get there by navigating Tongchuan Xiangshan. There is no large basic car in the parking lot on the roadside. There is no parking fee. There are some aunts selling special products at the entrance. Tickets are 40 per person. Free for 65 and over. You can also buy a battery car for 10 yuan per person when you enter, and you can pull it directly to the entrance of the scenic spot. It may take about 30 minutes if you go up. Fragrant Mountain is located to the west of Yaoyu Village (Yaoyu Village), Miaowan Town, 45 kilometers northwest of Yaozhou District, Tongchuan City, Shaanxi Province. It has numerous mountain ranges, vertical and horizontal river valleys, unique geological and landforms, and a forest coverage rate of over 85%, which is a well-preserved natural secondary Forest area. The Buddhist building on the mountain Daxiangshan Temple was built in Fu Qin. It is the place where the third daughter of King Miao Zhuang and Princess Miao Shan practiced. Because of Miaoshan's hand-eye doctor father's disease, he was edicted as Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva with Thousand Hands and Thousand Eyes, revered as the lord god of Xiangshan, and Xiangshan became a famous Buddhist mountain. Therefore, Xiangshan is well-known for its bodhisattva spirituality. Pilgrims from the dynasties and mountains have gathered not only from China, but also from some countries in Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Macau. It is one of China's "eight famous Buddhist mountains" and a well-known Buddhist holy place. It is the only place where Guanyin sits and the body worships. In 1986, it was listed as a key cultural relic protection unit of the city. In 1999, the Xiangshan-Zhaojin Provincial Scenic Spot was established together with the Zhaojin Revolutionary Base. In 2014, it was promoted to a national AAAA-level tourist attraction.

肠粉叉烧包Travel date: 2019-11-4. To You can reach Yaozhou Kiln Museum by taking bus No. 6 or tourist bus No. 3. Pay special attention to the closing day. Most other museums are closed on Mondays, but the Yaozhou Kiln Museum is closed on Tuesdays. There are a total of 9 cultural relics exhibition halls, and the visit takes more than one hour. To Tang Song kiln site and Tang Sancai kiln site pass 20, but the ticket window of the kiln site says that each single ticket is 10, I don’t know if it is possible to buy tickets separately. At that time (November 2019), tickets were not required. The conductor said that they started the Belt and Road activities in October last year (referring to 2018, if I remember correctly), and that tickets were not collected. It’s April 2020, and I don’t know if the fees have been restored. Both kiln sites are very small, and I will finish reading them in a while. To There are also exhibitions in the Yaoci Cultural Industrial Park diagonally opposite the Tang Sancai Kiln Site.

Tongchuan Travel Tips

About Tongchuan

Tongchuan is located in Shaanxi Province, with the ancient city of Xi'an to its south and the Mausoleum of the Yellow Emperor and historic Yan'an to its north. Tongchuan itself is a model of the perfect integration of cultural and natural attractions. The famous Tang era physician Sun Simiao once secluded himself here, and Tang era calligraphist Liu Gongquan and Northern Song painter Fan Kuan were both born in Tongchuan. Tongchuan isn't just about human culture, though. The scenery is gorgeous, the summers cool, and the winters mild. In the wintertime here, you can even experience the spectacle of an ice and snow festival and the pleasures of a modern ski venue. Enjoy the fun of playing winter sports and seeing ice sculptures and ice lanterns.
