Introduction

Xianggong Hall is a temple and the name of a village, located in Chongshou Town, Cixi. Chongshou Town is located on the coast and has a tradition of reclamation throughout the ages. One year, people dug up a Bodhisattva from the sea flats. The common people always had some kind of awe for the Bodhisattva, not to mention that it was dug out of the sea and was bestowed by the sea god, so a temple was built and dedicated, hoping that it would protect the people of Limin. . This is the Xianggong Palace. During the Cultural Revolution, the Bodhisattva was destroyed, and the Bodhisattva enshrined in the Xianggong Hall was rebuilt later. What makes this place famous is the battle of Xianggongdian, which was the first battle of the anti-Japanese guerrillas led by the New Fourth Army against the Japanese in eastern Zhejiang. On June 18, 1941, more than 30 Japanese troops set out from the Andong stronghold in Yuyao County, Zhejiang Province, and attacked the Xianggong Palace. On the 16th, the 4th Brigade of the 5th Detachment of the Songhu Guerrilla Group, which had just crossed from Pudong to Hainan and landed in the northern part of Yuyao, quickly rushed to Xiangtian Temple near the Xianggong Palace to set up an ambush. In this ambush, eight Japanese soldiers were killed and wounded, and it was also the first time the Japanese army was hit after the invasion of eastern Zhejiang.
