冬游迹

Yuanmingyuan, as the representative of ancient Chinese imperial gardens. It has an irreplaceable position and represents the integration of Chinese traditional imperial gardens and Western architectural styles. Yuanmingyuan is located in the north of Haidian District, the western suburb of Beijing. It is the imperial garden built by the five emperors of the Qing Dynasty. It has been crowned by the world with many good names, such as garden of ten thousand gardens model of world gardens Oriental Versailles Palace etc. Yuanmingyuan consists of Yuanmingyuan, Changchun and Qichunyuan. Now, most of the Yuanmingyuan we see have been renovated, because after the destruction of the great powers, there are almost no survivors. Yuanmingyuan is divided into two scenic spots - "Fuhai scenic spot, Jiuzhou scenic spot. This Eight Diagrams Array is the place where the former Emperor entertained himself. But this building is also built according to the original shape, scaled down and restored. But I can vaguely feel the lively scenes here in the past. The style of construction is based on the combination of the Eight Diagrams Array in ancient China and the labyrinth in the West. In the past, the construction of royal gardens paid special attention to "water", so we can also see the water culture of the whole Yuanmingyuan scenic spot. Water area accounts for most of the area. In the middle of the waters, there are pavilions and pavilions dotted with stars. This design also reflects the royal majesty and atmosphere. Dashuifa, here has now become a synonym for Yuanmingyuan. In textbooks, or in the propaganda reports of Yuanmingyuan, it has become the symbol of Yuanmingyuan. Many people who have never been here think it is the gate of Yuanmingyuan, but in fact it is not. This is only a scenic spot of the Western Tower, which was also a place for the emperor to see the water spray. The Yuanmingyuan scenic spot also has a separate exhibition hall, which is a unified display and preservation of the cultural relics excavated during the restoration and reconstruction of the time. Looking at the remains of debris and relics, we can see the exquisite craftsmanship and hunger of that year, and the elegance of Royal architecture. But it is painful to see the damaged cultural relics here. So many great treasures have been destroyed by Western powers. Yuanmingyuan is the greatest humiliation in Chinese history. Now the times are developing, while economic development, many young people have forgotten the history, but the high-speed development of the economy should not forget the humiliation in the past. Culture and history cannot be buried. Today's young people should come here, take a look, always alert themselves. Don't forget the national shame, remember the history.

Yuanmingyuan was founded in 1709 (the forty-eighth year of Kangxi) and was first given by Emperor Kangxi to Emperor Yuyu's four sons. After Yongzheng assumed the throne in 1722, the original garden was expanded and Zhengda Guangming Hall, Diligence Hall and Cabinet Hall were built in the south of the garden. Six of them were on duty in the Military Aircraft Department. They wanted to stay here in summer to avoid noise and listen to politics. During the reign of Emperor Qianlong, in addition to the partial construction and reconstruction of Yuanmingyuan, Changchun Garden was built in the east, and Wanchun Garden was merged in the southeast. ) The pattern of Yuanming Three Gardens has basically taken shape. In the Jiaqing Dynasty, the Qichun Garden (Wanchun Garden) was renovated and constructed to make it one of the main garden dwelling places. During the reign of Emperor Daoguang, the state affairs were declining and the financial resources were insufficient. However, the decorations of Longevity, Xiangshan and Yuquan "Sanshan" were retreated, and the renovation and decoration of Yuanming Sanyuan were not abandoned. On October 6, 1860, the British and French allied forces looted the Yuanmingyuan Garden, looted cultural relics and burned them. They wanted to be repaired when Tongzhi Emperor was emperor. They were forced to stop and rebuild other buildings because of financial difficulties. After the eight-nation coalition forces, they were attacked by bandits and eventually turned into ruins. Yuanmingyuan, founded and operated in the Qing Dynasty for more than 150 years, has enjoyed worldwide fame for its vast regional scale, outstanding construction techniques, exquisite architectural scenery, rich cultural collection and profound national cultural connotations. It is known as "the model of all gardening arts" and as "the model of ideal and art" by Victor Hugo, a French writer. Nowadays, when we enter the Yuanmingyuan Garden, which bears too much history and too much sadness, we can see the weak pillars and ancient trees all telling us about its past. The garden is bright and old, but it is also round. (The gate of the scenic spot receives a ticket, walks in, along with the river bank to the scenic spot sightseeing bus, you can take a bus for 8 yuan one way, then go to the site, buy tickets for the second time, you can walk or take a sightseeing bus after visiting the site.) In winter, tourists are less, and it seems more desolate and depressed.
