Self-driving Lanxi Lantern Festival
We Shanghai people do not put firecrackers in the New Year, there is no custom, the whole city is empty, watching everyone full screen home for the New Year seems to be another world. So I came to Zhejiang ancient village by car and looked for the long-lost year.
This ancient village located in Lanxi, Jinhua City, Zhejiang Province is named Zhuge Bagua Village. It is naturally a gathering place of Zhuge descendants. The whole village has special topography, low outside and high inside. There is a pond in the center with a gossip shape. Eight paths, the houses are in a gossip array, wonderful.
Ancient villages nowadays every household manages the homestays and farmhouse restaurants. The night falls very busy. There are people on the roads to eat at the table. The neighborhoods are also very harmonious. The gates are open to the streets, playing cards, chatting, eating snacks everywhere. . . There are also tourists from our city who are looking for it. Kongming Lock and Kongming Lantern in the commissary were particularly popular. We saw that everyone made a serious wish to light the lights, and we couldnt help but buy one.
This is an ancient village with cultural heritage, simplicity and tranquility. Today, there are still many elderly people living in the village, strolling along the Qingshiban Road, can see the divination, selling pictures and selling words, as well as selling some such as Zhuge Lian , Zhuge Yu fan, Kong Mingsuo and other gadgets. The village is not too big. It takes about an hour or two to walk around. It takes about half a day to walk around the alleys in the village. The Zhuge Bagua Village is not only unique in its layout, but also the ancient dwellings in the town. According to relevant records, the town was built in the Song and Yuan Dynasties, and the descendants have continued to build and renovate. The town preserves more than 200 ancient buildings in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, scattered among the alleys of the town, the original, the ancient style still exists.
There is no such thing as a thousand worlds. There is a labyrinth village in Lanxi, Zhejiang. This village is called Zhuge Bagua Village and was built by Zhuge Liangs descendants. The entire village was built according to the Taoist array of Taoist temples. During the walk, it was like walking into the maze. The houses of the
Zhuge Bagua Village are opposite in face and back, and the streets are distributed along the central pond. It seems that there is a road but unconsciously will go to the road, taking into account the function of the house and the function of preventing flooding. There are often thieves who can only get rid of their hands because they get lost. In addition, because there are many firewalls in the residential areas and there are reservoirs in the villages, the fire performance of Bagua Village is excellent!
The first ancestor of Zhuge's family was the Zhuge Liang, a generation of military officers from the Three Kingdoms period. It was passed to the Zhuge lion. It was in the middle of the Yuan Dynasty. The Zhuge bearing family, including the Zhuge lion, carefully managed the Chinese medicine industry in Zhuge Bagua Village and quickly developed into a place. The family has accumulated a lot of wealth. The pattern of Zhuge Bagua Village was laid at that time.
Zhuge Bagua Village was built during the Song and Yuan Dynasties. During the Ming and Qing Dynasties, there were many expansions, continuations and reconstructions. In addition to the Feng Shui flood control function, the village also retained many exquisite Huizhou dwellings. The feng shui pattern of the
Zhuge Bagua Village is divided into the Eight Diagrams and the Outer Eight Diagrams. The eight hills surrounding the village are shaped like the Eight Diagrams. The village buildings and eight streets respond to each other, and the central area resembles the Taiji Yinyang fish. Zhongchi, forming the inner gossip.
Because it has not been over-exploited, Zhuge Bagua Village has maintained a simple folk style and a relatively quiet living atmosphere, which is especially suitable for casual exploration!
The most peculiar thing about Zhuge Bagua Village is that its layout is exquisite and mysterious. Looking down from the sky, the whole village is in the shape of a gossip. The distribution of houses and streets is exactly the same as the Zhuge Liang Jiugong Eight Diagrams.
The village has a low level in the middle of the terrain, and the surrounding area is getting higher and higher, forming a pond. Zhongchi is the core of Zhuge Bagua Village and the base point of the "eight-figure map". It is not big, but there is water on the half of the pond and half on the side. It is like the Taiji in the Jiugong Bagua map. It is wonderful.
Zhuge Da Shi uses his exquisite knowledge of Feng Shui, carefully designed the layout of the entire Bagua Village according to the concept of Jiugong and Gossip: with Zhongchi as the core, eight lanes radiate outward, forming the inner gossip; There are just eight hills outside the village, forming an encirclement and forming an outside gossip.
Zhuge Bagua Village is located in Zhuge Village in the northwest of Lanxi. It is the largest settlement area of Zhuge Liang's descendants. According to the layout of the Nine Palaces and the Eight Diagrams, the village is centered on the Taiji-shaped Zhongchi in the village center and extends eight lanes of in eight directions to form the inner Eight Diagrams while the hills outside the village form the outer Eight Diagrams. That's why it is called the "Zhuge Bagua Village." Zhuge Bagua Village is divided into two parts: the main scenic area and the west scenic area. The west scenic area includes the Longfeng Buddhist Temple and a Baicao Ecological Park.
