Yunxi Village's double "tower" blessing legend 2013-10-13


The yin and yang double "tower" villagers from the Xiaowangmiao Town of Fenghua City to the south, the road under the cover of the Taolin bamboo, and along the gentle slope of the valley twists up the mountain. The Tunxi, which originated from Xujia Mountain in Jinyun Township, rushes down from the deep mountain valley. After it arrives at Wangjia Village, it is called Yunxi, and the stream flows northward. The terrain is flat and the river is wide. It is called Lianglangxi and Quanxi. At the mouth of Yunxi in the north of Wangjiacun, there are Dongshi Mountain and Xixiang Mountain guardian village entrance. Going in the direction of the clouds, suddenly there was a strange building in the shadow of the bamboo. This is the legendary "Spiral Star Tower." Its weird shape can't be reminiscent of the fact that it was actually a "tower." It is shaped like a giant snail on the side of the stream. The bottom is about 20 meters in diameter and the top is nearly 20 meters high. It has six floors. Because it is too exotic, it is like a pyramid. From the bottom of the tower, hovering along the stone road, the narrower the stone road is, the more dizzy the feeling is. The seemingly low tower body is really on the top, and there is a sense of sublimity that "will be the top." Surprisingly, there is also a “reverse snail” in the village – the Luoxingtan, which is opposite to the tower. This is the masterpiece of the most prestigious Feng Shui masters of the Ming Dynasty. It is said that in the early years of the Ming Dynasty, there were often mountain floods and floods in the village. For the sake of sheltering the children and grandchildren, the village invited the famous Feng Shui masters of Yanqing Temple in Ningbo to observe the feng shui. The master believes that "the mountain pass is facing north, and the suffocation is too strong", and it is proposed to build a tower to guard, so there is a Luoxing Tower built in the mouth of Yunxi. It is said that this tower is the number of "Beidou Chaobai", and later became one of the eight scenic spots in Yunxi. After the completion of the Luoxing Tower, the singer also instructed the villagers to dig a “Snail Pool” in the village, also known as the “Cylinder Lake Pool”, which is opposite to the Luoxing Tower. The Luoxingtan is 15 meters in diameter and 12.5 meters deep. The wall of the cave is built of cobblestone blocks. The upper and lower points are pointed, and the water level is reduced to the bottom of the pool. There are also six levels. According to the observation, the snail tower at the entrance of the village refers to the sky and symbolizes men, while the Luoxingtan in the village points to the ground and symbolizes women. The two complement each other, it can be said that yin and yang are in harmony, and heaven and man are united. If you look down the entire Yunxi Village, you can see that an S-shaped cloud creek passes through the middle of the Luoxing Tower and the Luoxingtan, which is the taiji of the yin and yang. It may also be a coincidence that this yin and yang double "tower" has been blessing the entire village for hundreds of years. Since then, Yunxi Village has no major disasters. According to the "Fenghua Place Name", it was recorded: "The original building had a hovering and stone-built snail tower. In 1974, the tower was demolished for the construction of Dazhetian." In 2006, it was rebuilt by the experts of Shanghai Tongji University and rebuilt as it was. There are several ancient banyan trees at the mouth of the Yaozong village in Yunxi. The branches are vigorous and the branches and leaves tremble in the breeze, as if they are warmly welcoming guests. Against the backdrop of the trees, an old temple with red walls and Uwa stands in the mouth of Laojie. There is a plaque on the doorway, and the word "Yunxi Temple" is written. This is the temple volume written by Mr. Chen Congzhou, a famous architect and professor of Tongji University in 1994. On the left and right side of the couple, the author said: "Tang Fengyue has 3,000 households, and Song gave the first to Jiangnan." It can be seen that the Wang clans who live here are all honored for their ancestors. From the wall of the temple, the temple is believed to have originated in the Spring and Autumn Period more than 2,000 years ago. The son of Lu Guoguojun Chenggong was sealed to Wang Yu (now Qufu, Shandong), and later generations of the sons and daughters The surname is Wang. This Wang family is the direct descendant of the Yellow Emperor. At the top of the ancestral hall is the Wang dynasty of the Tang Dynasty, the martial arts of the Tang Dynasty, and the dynasty of the dynasty. There is a couplet on the ancestral hall: "Look at the incense in the original god ancestors, only the hero is like the morning is the king." Inside the Yunxi Temple, the left and right are the partial temple, standing with the groom. After entering the temple gate, you can see the Taishi wall that blocks the stage. There are four theaters on the left and right sides. The wing building is also supported by stone pillars, and the columns are engraved with couplets. In the Yunxi Temple, there is a plaque on the "transfer pavilion", which is 1.71 meters high, 5.2 meters wide and 4.8 meters deep. There are guardrails around, and there are two square pillars at the front desk. . The stage is engraved with finely crafted opera paintings, and the delicate patterns are vivid. The algae well on the top of the center is the common Luojing Luoding in the Ningbo process. In 1999, a sudden fire raged, the stage and the advancement of the two compartments escaped, and the backwards and the theaters were rebuilt in 2001, still maintaining a simple and gorgeous style. Right on the stage is a delicate Xishan-style viewing pavilion, which is connected to the ancestral temple. The raft on the eaves under the eaves also has Luo Luojing Luoding. Therefore, the villagers call it "double platform top." The Yunxi Temple is different from the ordinary family. It is both a family temple of the ancestors and a social temple of the protector. On the fourth day of November, it is Wang Hua’s birthday. Please ask God, play, and worship the ancestors. Wuli Old Street will not be separated from the surname. That day was also the most troublesome day in Yunxi Village. The quaint vicissitudes of life are the old streets that walk out of the Yunxi Temple. It is an old street about 5 meters wide and extends more than 100 meters to the south. Under the old street of Shiban Road, there is a dark stream that flows through the river. Old streets still have old shops, umbrellas, hoops, iron, and grain. The shops are small, eat, live, and use. It is said that in the past, the township merchants who picked up the shoulders of the car were here to rest. In the depths of the west side of the old street, there is a ancestral hall of the Wang's big house, the Lun Xutang, which was built in the Ming Dynasty and rebuilt in the early Qing Dynasty. It has a longer history than the Yunxi Temple. Crossing the alley, you will arrive at the ancient mountain of Wang Ercun, Yunxi. This is another Wang family temple, built in the early Northern Song Dynasty and rebuilt in the 16th year of Qing Emperor Qianlong (1751). The difference is that this ancestral hall, dedicated to the ancestors of the dynasties of Wang, also has the ancestors of the local family. A ancestral hall dedicated to the second surname is rare. It is said that Wang’s Taigong is kind and generous, and he is generous. No matter who is surnamed, he is willing to accept it at the Wang family. Therefore, more than a dozen surnames in Yunxi Village are like a family, and they live in harmony. Yunxiyu is also well preserved in the ancient stage. The stage is the algae square mouth and the octagonal spire. Taiwan’s fortune is “jingjingtai”, and Taiwan’s Union contains profound meaning: “Contemporary 岂 has no predecessors, and Taichung often has drama people.” [Guide] Yunxi Village is about 6 kilometers south of Xiaowangmiao Town, Fenghua City, and can be used in Ningbo Automobile. Take the bus to Fenghua in the south station, then take the bus from Fenghua to Jinyun, and take it under Wangjiacun. [Introduction] Yunxi Village is named after the Qiyun River that flows from the south to the north. According to the introduction of the elderly in the village, Yunxi Village was merged from Shangwang Village, Wangjiayi Village, Wangjia 2 Village, Panyu Village and Wucun Village. There are more than 1,000 households in the village with more than 3,000 people. There are more than ten surnames in the village, and the main surname is Wang, so it is also known as Wangjiacun. The villagers use mountain forests, rice crops and bamboo crafts, pottery and so on. On September 16, Wang Shunrong, a swimmer who won five gold medals at the National Games, returned to Yunxi Village in his hometown, making this quiet ancient village shine. Cultural Relics ● Yunxi Temple is located at the entrance of Yunxi Village. According to the Wang family tree, the temple was built in the first year of Tongzhi in the Qing Dynasty. It was rebuilt more than ten years ago and is well preserved. Today, the ancient temple covers an area of ​​nearly 900 square meters. On the central axis, there are heads (instruments), advances, stage, patios, pavilions, and shrines. In 2010, it was listed as Fenghu City Wenbao Point. ●Zhongji Bridge is located at the entrance of Yunxi Village. The three-hole stone arch bridge was rebuilt during the Republic of China. The length of the creek is 25 meters and the width is 5 meters. The middle hole is 4 meters across the water and 6 meters high. After the road bridge was built decades ago, the bridge was only accessible to pedestrians. ●Yunxitun is located in Wangjia 2 Village of Yunxi, relying on Niushan and facing east. It was built in the early Northern Song Dynasty and rebuilt in the 16th year of Qing Emperor Qianlong (1751). The ancient stage was built in the temple and the protection was intact. ● Lun Xutang is located in the village of Xiawang. It was built in the Ming Dynasty. The hard mountain-style south facing courtyard bungalow is the ancestral hall of the lower Wang Dafang. Divided into forward, backward, two-box and Mingtang. Experts commented that Ningbo Wenbao expert Yang Gucheng said that Yunxi Village is a thousand-year-old village. It used to live for more than 3,000 people, and more than ten surnames, with Wang as the main surname. According to the "Yunxi Wang's Genealogy", Yunxi Wang began to move to the ancestral ancestral temple. After the Five Dynasties, Zhou Guangshun three years (953), it was found that the mountain here is very similar to the old home of Wo Niu Mountain. The mouth (now Jiangxi) moved to live, and the back of the village was named Wo Niu Shan. The village is surrounded by mountains and waters, building rooms along the stream. In the era of underdeveloped traffic, the tribes lived a life like a hermit. Later, the children and grandchildren prospered, and in the late Ming Dynasty, there were more than a thousand people. After the modern civilization infiltrated into the ancient village of the mountains, some villagers went out to do business and get rich. The vast ancient village is obviously deserted than before. However, due to the protection of the ancient village foundation, the call of the ancient temple, the ancient temple, the old street, the ancient stage, and the Luoxing Tower still affect the long-distance nostalgia of the far and near wanderers. This is also the ultimate goal of our promotion of the preservation of historical and cultural ancient villages.
