In many cases, the reason why we want to travel to a city may be because of its name, perhaps because of its famous food, or because of a poem.
The origin of Foshan's name is actually very simple. It is because of the excavation of three statues of Buddha on the Tapang Hill in the city. It is believed that this place is the land of the Buddhist family, and the standing stone list changed Shihua Township to “Foshan”.
And we know Foshan because it is Huang Feihong and Bruce Lee's hometown. The reason why I went to Foshan and wanted to know Huang Feihong and Bruce Lee's hometown was to come to this city.
Foshan Ancestral Temple - Nanfeng Ancient Foyer - Liangyuan - Lingnan Tiandi
First stop - Foshan Ancestral Temple
Ancestral Temple, located in the city center of Foshan City, is not the reason why I like the culture of the temple. It is because of Huang Feihong's memorial hall. It is inside the temple area of the Zumiao Temple. So you have to go in and see it. Learn about Huang Feihong's story.
Tickets: 20 yuan, joint ticket 35 yuan (Zumiao and Nanfeng ancient stove together)
The bronze statue of Huang Feihong
I like this style of architecture very much. It may be because I am also from the south because of the bricks and tiles and the charm of Jiangnan Water Village.
At a performance venue inside the Wong Fei Hong martial arts hall, here we enjoyed the real performance of Kung Fu, but the performance time was not very long and I did not feel enough to see enough.
The large performance venue outside the Huang Feihong Memorial Hall has long been filled with people waiting to see the performance.
Many small martial artists began to beat drums, indicating that the performance is about to begin.
Lion dance performances, but now are too commercialized, while performing, while promoting the monuments to the audience.
Lion Dance Plum Blossom Show
The final performance of the lion dance is to receive money and send blessings, but the people on the side of Guangdong are more likely to believe this kind of thing. There are still many people going.
Second stop - Nanfeng Ancient Kitchen
Nanfeng ancient stove, saying that if a friend in Foshan recommended me to go, I really do not know that there is such a place in Foshan. When I was at the ancestral temple, I bought a joint ticket for the ancestral temple and the Nanfeng Ancient stove, which was 35 yuan, which is still relatively cheap. If you bought it separately, you have to pay 45 yuan.
"Give me a whole day and return you to a thousand years." I like the phrase Baidu Encyclopedia said. In the Nanfeng ancient stove area, we gathered the traditional craftsmanship of Shangong micro carving, ancient car pulling blanks, making big vats, and playing sandals, and assembled lion dance, martial arts, and Cantonese opera. The essence of folk art such as paper-cutting and paper-cutting attracts a large number of people from all over the world every day. They look for Tao Gen in this world's sacred place for pottery culture, find the spirit of pottery, and experience profound and profound Chinese culture.
This pair of couplets was very interesting and they were filmed.
About the introduction of this large banyan tree has a history of 500 years. It stands beside the kiln. The temperature is so high and it can still die. The longer it gets, the more vigorous it really is.
This eucalyptus tree is very tall and very large. From a distance, it can be seen in its huge size.
Third Station - Liang Yuan
Liang Yuan, Pioneer Road, Songfeng Road, Foshan City. And Fanyin Mountain House, Dongguan Keyuan, and Shunde Qinghui Park are collectively known as the four famous gardens of Guangdong Province in the Qing Dynasty.
Tickets: 10 yuan, free Saturday.
This is also an attraction near the center of the city. The garden is not very big, but the scenery inside is quite different. It is similar to the layout of the Suzhou garden. Visitors here are still many, there are many photographers shooting models here, so I also took a few photos.
The last stop - Lingnan Xintiandi
Lingnan Xintiandi, Foshan's most prosperous downtown area, takes the ancestral temple, Donghuali, and historical scene areas as its main axis of development. It uses modern methods to protect and renovate 22 cultural relic buildings and many outstanding historical buildings in the area, continuing the historic street. Lane, creating an open space with appropriate scale, using modern techniques to transform the outstanding historical buildings with typical residential styles of residential buildings in Donghuali District of Zumiao, which will include residential buildings, office buildings, retail, restaurants, entertainment, tourism and culture. Multi-functional facilities, continue Foshan style.
Lingnan Xintiandi has not yet been fully completed, but it has begun to take shape and is expected to be completed in 2020. The scale is still quite large. The traffic to the other side is also very convenient. The subway station directly arrives.
