Laozi Hall (spot) - the place where Chinese thought develops
Laozi Temple (point) in today's Chongzhou city (Shuchuan in Han Dynasty and Shuzhou in Tang Dynasty) is the development place of the world's thought. It was first built in the Tang Dynasty and rebuilt in the Wanli period of the Ming Dynasty. It is a temple for sacrificing Laozi in the past dynasties, also known as "Laozu hall" or "Laozi Xinggong". There are stone inscriptions of Laozi's moral Scripture, and documents about Laozi are displayed. In front of the palace, there is a lane for asking for rites, which is said to be the place where Confucius asked Laozi for rites. During the Ming Dynasty, the feudal ideology ruled and worshipped Confucianism. In the early Ming Dynasty, Hongwu changed the name of "civet cat for Taizu" into "Confucius Confucian Temple". In the 11th year of Zhengde of Ming Dynasty (1516), it was overhauled, and then it was destroyed in the fire of war. The existing buildings were rebuilt during the reign of Emperor Kangxi and Guangxu of Qing Dynasty, and then the Qing Dynasty perished and the feudal thought ended.
Laozi temple was built in 686 A.D. from the prosperous Tang Dynasty to the Five Dynasties (the second year of Wu Zetian's hanging arch). At that time, the Tang Dynasty believed in Taoism and was built to commemorate the Taoist ancestors. Laozi temple was built at the site of Laozi Taoist Scriptures (Laozi site). Tang Dynasty economy and culture developed to the peak of Chinese culture. The former and present Chongzhou Confucian temple is a historical wrong record.
