brief introduction

The Wangwu Mountain Scenic Area is one of the nine famous ancient mountains in China. It is also the first of the ten cave heavens of Taoism. It is also the hometown of Yu Gong. The story of Yu Gong digging mountains is well known for the record of "Liezi" and Mao Zedong's quotation in "Yu Gong Moving Mountains".

According to the earliest geographic record of China, Yugong, the artistic conception of "all the princes face up to heaven" is also called "the house of the king with its mountain shape". Tiantan Mountain, the main peak, is traditionally the sacrificial place of Xuanyuan Huangdi, the ancestor of the Chinese nation. For centuries, it has been regarded as a sacred place where the descendants of the Yellow Emperor ruled the world. This is where the fable "Yu Gong Shi Shan", which is well-known both at home and abroad, happens.

Wangwu Mountain is a Taoist holy place characterized by Taoist culture. Taoism is a religion born and bred in China. It is based on the thought of Huangdi and Laozi School and has strong characteristics of Han nationality thought and belief. Wonderland is where the gods live. The beautiful Wangwu Mountain has naturally become an ideal place for Taoists to collect medicines and refine alchemy and cultivate their morality in order to achieve immortality.

Sima Chengzhen, a famous highway in Tang Dynasty, in his book The Book of Heavenly Palace and Earth Mansion of the Shangqing Dynasty, made the world famous mountains ten cave heavens, thirty-six small cave heavens and seventy-two blessed places. Among them, Wangwu Mountain was listed as "the first cave heaven under the heaven" and "the heavens with little emptiness and emptiness", which established the purpose status of the world.

The prosperity of Wangwushan is closely related to the development of Taoism. Legend has it that after Emperor Xuanyuan reigned under the rule of the world, on August 15, the Queen Mother of the West met again in Tiantan Mountains to seek the way to become immortals, and built an appeal court here to visit the immortals of the four seas. Every year on August 15, all the good men and gods gathered in Wangwu Mountain. Lao Tzu Li Er, known as the ancestor of Taoism, also went to Mount Wangwu to practice. There are still "Lao Tzu Tanchi" relics on the top of Mount Tiantan. Famous figures in early Taoism, such as the fairy Prince Jin, the Qingxu real man Wang Bao, the famous Fang Shi Yu Ji, the wife of Nanyue Wei Huacun, and the Taoist theorist Ge Hong, all practiced Taoism in Wangwushan. After the Sui and Tang Dynasties, especially in the Li and Tang Dynasties, Lao Tzu was respected as the ancestor, Taoism as the national religion, and Taoism was ordered to be built everywhere, which laid the foundation for the development of Taoism. Sun Simiao, a doctor known as the "King of Medicine" in China, was one of the famous Taoists in the Tang Dynasty. In his later years, he settled down in Cuiwei Temple of Wangwu Mountain, collected medicines and practiced medicine to save the world. Until the death of immortals, Sun Zhenren's grave still exists. Sima Chengzhen, the fourth generation master of Taoism Maoshan Sect in Tang Dynasty, was summoned to the capital by Wu Zetian, Tang Ruizhong and Tang Xuanzong successively, and was rewarded more. Tang Xuanzong Li Longji respected him as "the first Taoist religion in the whole country" and in the twelfth year of Kaiyuan in the Tang Dynasty (724 AD). He ordered Sima Chengzhen to choose his own form and live in Wang Wu Mountain. Then he sent his sister, Princess Yuzhen, to worship Sima Chengzhen as a teacher and to practice Taoism in Wang Wu Mountain. In this way, during the Tang Dynasty, Wang Wushan successively built such magnificent Taoist temples as Faziwei Palace, Balcony Palace, Qingxu Palace, Shifangyuan, Lingdu Guan, and became the national Taoist activity center.

For thousands of years, Wang Wushan has not only been a place for Taoist personages to cultivate themselves, alchemy and immortality, but also attracted many literati and poets to come here to seek seclusion and to cultivate their sentiments. Tang Dynasty poets Li Bai, Du Fu, Bai Juyi, Li Shangyin and Han Yu visited Wang Wushan. They lingered here and forgot to return, leaving behind many famous and immortal sentences. Li Bai wrote in "Meng Darong, a man from Mount Huiwangwu" that "I would like to follow my husband on the Temple of Heaven and sweep away the flowers with fairies". Wang Wei said in "Send Zhang Taoist monk back to the mountain" that "Where is Mr. Wang's house going? He visits Maoju, and his wife decides to stay in Dan and drive chickens into the clouds". Liu Yuxi wrote in his book The King's House of Returning My Brothers to Hermitage: "The sunset on the Temple of Heaven looks like Yujing. Night sees the sun, the moon is quiet and far-reaching. Yunlu Chicken and Dog, Dantai has a name. Brothers also go along with those who have been successful in the past. "


Wang Wushan, a national AAAA scenic spot, is one of the nine famous mountains in ancient China. The story of Yugong Moving Mountains takes place here. During the Han and Wei Dynasties, Wangwu Mountain was listed as the top ten cave heavens in Taoism, which was called "the first cave heaven in the world". Tiantan Mountain, the main peak, is the place where the Chinese ancestor Xuanyuan Huangdi set up altars to offer sacrifices to heaven. It is known as "the ridge of Taihang" and "the pillar of optimizing heaven and earth". The forest coverage of the whole scenic area is over 98%, among which the most rare is the Ginkgo biloba tree with a history of more than 2,000 years, known as the "world plant living fossil".

The legendary place of "Yugong Moving Mountains" is in the Yang of Wangwu Mountain. This is a north-south trending mountain ridge extending from the main peak of Wangwu Mountain. To the west of the mountain ridge is Yugong Village, to the East is Xiaoyouhe. People in Yugong Village go to Xiaoyouhe every day to fetch water. It is this great mountain ridge that brings them many inconveniences. So Yugong should lead his descendants to dig it out.
