There is a Shikofa Road in Yangzhou, and the Shikofa Memorial Hall is located at the southern end of the road, beside the Meihua Ridge of the ancient city river in Yangzhou. When I was in school, I admired and sighed for the deeds of Shi Kefa, a famous anti-Qing general. During my trip to Yangzhou in April this year, I designated two major cultural attractions to be visited: Zhu Ziqing's former residence and Shi Kefa Memorial Hall. Unfortunately, it was not open on Monday, so we delayed our visit to Zhenjiang in the afternoon and arrived at 8:30 in the morning when we left Yangzhou. When entering the gate, the first thing to be seen is a very old Ginkgo biloba tree, with its eastern tomb and Western ancestral temple side by side. In the middle of the courtyard is the "Xiangtang" with Zhang Erying's name couplet ("counting the tears of the plum blossoms and dividing the hearts of the deceased in two distinct moons) hanging on both sides of the courtyard. Shi Kefa's loyalty, loyalty and courage to the country all his life. Under the Qizhuangshan River, a plaque in front of the hall, is a statue of General Shi, which is lifelike. The body of Shi Kefa, who insisted on not surrendering, could not be found during the 10th massacre of the Qing Dynasty in Yangzhou. The historic cemetery here is the clothes and crowns of his son. The whole memorial hall can see General Shi Kefa's life and some cultural relics and anti-Qing artillery. The green willows, green bamboo, vigorous pine, cold plum and courtyard in the memorial hall are also enjoyable scenery.
Shi Kefa Temple is the most important historic site in Yangzhou since the Qing Dynasty. When Qianlong went down to the south of the Yangtze River, you could see the novel Emperor Qianlong written by the February River. The ancestral hall is located on the Bank of Yunhe River with excellent scenery. The eastern half of the ancestral hall is a complex of buildings and the western part is a garden-style building, which is extremely elegant. The Guangling School of Yangzhou Guqin School gathered here before. There is a museum on the West side. On Labor Day, neem trees are in full bloom and have a strong fragrance.
Only when we came to Yangzhou did we know that Shi Kefa was named after Shi Kefa when there was a road in Yangzhou. The Shikofa Memorial is also a little surprise to Yangzhou: free visit, and rich in content. The introduction of Shi Kefa's life, the clothes and the graves, and the Guqin exhibition, the flowing water of the garden bridge and the fragrance of Lamei have attracted all kinds of true and false photographers.
Shi Kefa Memorial Hall is a famous historical relic commemorating the anti-Qing national hero Shi Kefa in the late Ming Dynasty. It is located at No. 24 Guangchumen Street, Yangzhou City, Jiangsu Province. It was built during the reign of Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty. It was rebuilt in Tongzhi for nine years. It was listed as a cultural relic protection unit in Jiangsu Province in 1956. It is of great historical and educational significance.
Facing the national calamity, Shi Gong was praised for his loyalty and bravery and left a good name in the history of Qing Dynasty. Nowadays, the memorial hall is in the downtown area, but it has exquisite gardens, lush forests, two giant ginkgo trees entering the hall, a clear pond at the back of the ancestral hall, and a small rockery. It can also be used as a place for contemplation.
The spirit of Shi Kefa is the pride of the nation, and it is a shining page in the integrity of China. As a Chinese, when I came to Yangzhou, I should visit this famous hero. Ticket price is 20 yuan, also not expensive, the courtyard is unique and quiet, go in and have a look, do not have a feeling, read the introduction, just to recall the history of Ming and Qing Dynasty.
The Shi Kefa Memorial Hall, also known as the Shi Gong Temple, is located on the Bank of the Yangzhou Moat. It was built in the reign of Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty. It was rebuilt in the ninth year of Tongzhi. The ancestral hall is facing the South and the eastern tomb and the Western ancestral hall are the places to commemorate the history of the anti-Qing national heroes in the late Ginkgo biloba in autumn and plum blossoms in winter add to the spirit of the memorial. After the Qing army captured Beijing, Shi Kefa's solitary army adhered to Yangzhou City, was killed after defeat, and Yangzhou was slaughtered for 10 days. This history is also described in Jinyong's novel Luding Ji. In front of the Shikefa Memorial Museum, there is a slightly wider bridge, the famous Shigong Bridge, and a small bridge through the main gate of the Memorial Museum for pedestrians only. After entering the door, I first saw the Xiangtang Hall. On both sides were the famous couplets written by Zhang Erying of Qing Dynasty "counting the tears of the plum blossom's death, two distinct moonlight's departure from the minister's heart". In the hall, there is a moired plum blossom lattice with a horizontal plaque "Qizhuangshan River" hanging on it, and a statue of Shi Kefa is sitting in the middle. Behind the Xiangtang Tomb is the Cemetery of History. Since no body was found after the Righteousness of Shi Kefa, only clothes were buried in the tomb. On both sides of the tomb are inscriptions written by celebrities at home and abroad for Shi Kefa. In the Memorial Hall of Shikefa, you can see Shikefa's handwriting, precious cultural relics, and understand the deeds of Shikefa and other national heroes. In addition, the exhibition hall of historical materials of Guangling Qin School is also in the scenic area. There are ancient Qin, paintings and other cultural relics on display in the museum. Sometimes you can see Guqin performances here.
The Shi Kefa Memorial Hall, also known as the Shi Gong Temple, was built to commemorate the history of the anti-Qing heroes. It was built in the reign of Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty. After the fall of Beijing in the early Qing Dynasty, Shi Kefa led the soldiers and civilians of Yangzhou to fight against the Qing soldiers and defend the Ducheng bravely. After the city was broken, the Qing soldiers slaughtered the city for ten days.
The Shi Kefa Memorial Hall and the Shi Gong Temple are not far from Dongguan Street. It's a ten-minute walk. Although the memorial hall is close to the main road, it feels very quiet as soon as it enters the memorial hall. Heaven does not want the traffic to disturb the loyal and righteous man. The memorial is not large, but it fully demonstrates Shi Kefa's years of fighting in Yangzhou. Similarly, in resisting the Qing Dynasty, Shi Kefa and Yuan Chonghuan were both dead, but they were quite different. Even their ancestral temples are quite different. This is history.
