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 attractions to visit on the historic street of Dongguan Street. The Wudang Palace is one of the attractions that you stumbled upon. I thought he was free for everyone to visit, but after entering, I saw that the price of the ticket required 12 yuan. I can see it when I cross the high threshold, there is a door god standing here quite bulging. If I want to take a good tour, I feel that Dongguan Street really must visit at least a long morning.
Wudang Palace is in Dongguan Commercial Street, next to Dongguan Food Square. This local is free, outside the entrance fee of 8 yuan. But I didn't see a ticket at the door, I went straight into the palace of Taoism.
This April, Yangzhou still caught up with the tail of spring. Guangzhou has been entering the summer. It is walking on the historical and cultural street of Dongguan Street, which is very noisy, but the Wudang Palace at 300 Dongguan Street is relatively quiet. There is a pair of couplets at the Shanmen and the Tiantongshou Gods and Fairies. The family was destroyed by fire during the Xianfeng era when the Taiping army captured the Wudang Palace in Yangzhou City. The only preserved is the middle gate and the rear hall of the Shanmen Palace. The rear hall is the inheritance of the rare Ming Dynasty buildings in Yangzhou City today. Therefore, the rear hall is also the key point for our visit. There is an ancient ginkgo tree palace in front of the hall. Adults and few people can walk slowly
Dongguan Street 300, Ming Xuande 3 years (1428), Wudang Palace original name of Zhenwu Temple, with blessing, pray for rain. Later, Zhenwu Temple gradually by the name of Wudang Palace replaced. Wudang Palace sits north facing the south, facing Dongguan Street, the door front can be seen white stone "Wudang Palace" four characters. In 1902, Wudang gyonggu established the "Yi Dong Gakudo", which was modeled on the great Confucian scholar Dong Zhongshu in the Han Dynasty. This school was the predecessor of Yangzhou junior high school.
