It is very worth a visit here. It is a place to pay homage to Fuxi, the ancestor of Chinese humanities. It has a history of 6 to 700 years.
It is worth to see and learn about the 8000-year history of China. The Fuxi family started human civilization.
The hometown of Emperor Xi, the ancestor of humanities! Worth a visit! Tianshui City, Gansu Province, as the birthplace of Fuxi and the birthplace of Fuxi Culture, has a large number of Fuxi cultural remains. Since ancient times, there has been a tradition of offering sacrifices to Fuxi in this area. From the Qin and Han Dynasties to the Ming and Qing Dynasties, as the head of the three emperors, Fuxi kept offering sacrifices to each other. Since 1988, except in 2008 and 2009, due to the 5.12 earthquake, public sacrifice activities have been suspended for two years. Gansu Province has successively held the 21st Fuxi Cultural Tourism Festival, and the Fuxi Memorial Ceremony has also been included in the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage protection lists, becoming an important cultural brand with unique characteristics in Gansu Province.
2019-07-02 Tianshui is a place with many historical sites and beautiful mountains and clear waters. In addition to the most famous Maijishan Grottoes, Fuxi Temple in Qinzhou District is also a must-see. The Qinzhou District of Tianshui is the seat of the government, and the cultural relics are relatively concentrated. From Maiji Mountain, in order to be able to visit Fuxi Temple the next day, I chose to live in Qinzhou District. Fuxi is the ancestor of the Chinese nation and one of the three emperors. As the ancestor of the Chinese civilization, he made tools, cultivated farming, made marriages, established surnames, made book deeds, learned gossip, and used the lights of civilization to guide people out of the chaos and end the primitive age. Fuxi Temple, whose real name is Taihao Palace, is commonly known as Renzong Temple. It is located on Fuxi Road, Xiguan, Qinzhou District, Tianshui City, Gansu Province. It is currently the largest and best-preserved Ming dynasty building complex in China to commemorate one of the ancient "Three Emperors", Fuxi. The Fuxi Temple faces the north and faces the south, and is built on the street. With great respect and anticipation, I came here early in the morning and walked into the temple as the first group of tourists. Just in time for the Fuxi Grand Ceremony month, many places still retain traces of the celebration, and the glory of the celebration is vaguely visible. It is understood that the annual Fuxi Cultural Festival is held in Fuxi Temple on June 22. The ceremony for Fuxi is very spectacular. At that time, all the priests bowed to the east to show their respect for Fuxi, the ancestor of humanities. Then, the chief priest and the accompany worship the nine large and nine small round tripods on the east and west sides of the sacrificial altar in turn. "Nine Ding" and "Wu Gu" indicate that Fuxi is the honor of the Ninth Five-Year Plan, and "Fang Ding" and "Yuan Ding" represent the heaven and the circle. Fuxi Temple is one of the most famous ancient architectural complexes in Northwest China. It was declared as a key cultural relics protection unit in Gansu Province by the People's Government of Gansu Province as early as 1963. It is now a national key cultural relics protection unit. Fuxi Temple has a history of more than 700 years and has been rebuilt nine times. From the scattered ancient cypress trees in the temple, we can see the precipitation of the years. The ancient buildings in the temple include theater buildings, archways, gates, yimen, Xiantian Hall, Taiji Hall, Bell Tower, Drum Tower, etc., arranged in sequence along the longitudinal axis, advancing layer by layer, majestic and grand. The Fuxi Temple complex and the surrounding antique blocks are very large. It is said that there are only two Fuxi temples remaining in the country. The other is in two towns in Weishan County, Shandong Province. However, the scale and history of Tianshui Fuxi temple far exceed the latter. As a relatively rare temple dedicated to Fuxi in China, Fuxi Temple is commendable because it has many displays of ancient and Taoist culture, many wooden structures are exquisitely carved, and its archaeological value is also high. So for those who want to understand Fuxi culture, this is the best place to go. The area of Tianshui City is not very large, but there are many cultural relics worth visiting! There is also a free museum at the back door of Fuxi Temple, which can be visited together. After exiting the back door, turn right and walk straight for less than 10 minutes to reach Yuquan Temple. You can browse and visit together. At the end of the tour, you can go to the pedestrian street to eat quack and other specialties.
The experience is very good, worth recommending, interesting and fun. The Fuxi Temple in Tianshui, Gansu is currently the largest and most well-preserved Ming dynasty complex commemorating one of the ancient "Three Emperors" Fuxi. Ctrip is very convenient to buy tickets, plus 1 yuan to buy audio guide explanation, valid within 15 years, watch and listen, you can also go back to listen slowly, very good!
Worship Fuxi, the first humanistic ancestor of our Chinese nation. Fuxi founded the Eight Diagrams and created the source of Chinese culture. There are public sacrifices in Fuxi Temple every year. The ancient trees in the temple are towering and quaint. It is a holy place for us to worship the first ancestors of Chinese humanities.
