Eight scenes in Xianghu

City mountain reminiscence

This scene and the "Yuecheng Evening Bell" in the Eight Sceneries of Xianghu Lake in Qing Dynasty Qianlong are both about Yuechengcheng Mountain, but the "Chengshan Memorial" is more appropriate. Because it highlights the eternal theme of inheriting Wang Gou's practice of "striving to govern and strive for self-improvement", and has more characteristics of the times. Moreover, Chengshan Temple was destroyed in 1861, and the so-called "late bell" no longer exists.

Pavilion view

The pavilion, which is located on the top of Shiyan Mountain, is the best place for panoramic viewing of Xianghu Lake and Qiantang River. Looking to the west of the pavilion, we can see a thousand hectares of Xianghu Lake and the green hills on both sides of the Taiwan Strait. The Qianjiang River is as bright as silver, the fishing pool is dim, the vast Xiaoshao Plain is vertically and horizontally rivered, the villages are dotted, and a beautiful picture of the fishing rice Town in the south of the Yangtze River.

Let's shine first.

The Xianzhao Temple beside the Pavilion is an ancient temple in the Southern Song Dynasty. When the sun rises eastward, Wandaoxiaguang first illuminates the eaves of the Yellow Wall of the ancient temple. The name of the temple comes from "the light of the rising sun shines on the temple first". The Xianzhao Temple in the dawn, hidden in the green bushes, is brilliant, and together with the dark green rocky mountains, reflected in the lake, the scenery is fascinating. Wei Ji of the Ming Dynasty wrote this poem: "On the top of Lanruoyan Mountain, Ling Xuyi is scarce. Yangwuhu Dongsheng, streamer first served."

Night crossing Lake

Crossing the lake bridge and levee, a rainbow lying wave cuts across the gourd waist of Xianghu Lake. The scenery is charming in the daytime and more charming in the moonlight and night. Regardless of spring, summer, autumn and winter, the night and moon of Xianghu Lake are all kinds of customs, especially autumn night. On autumn night, sitting in the pavilion beside the bridge across the lake, the mountains are dark and the forests are sparse, the lake is as flat as a mirror, and the night is as cool as water. At this time, a bright moon rises slowly, and the lake surface shines. This situation makes people worry about everything.

Yang Qi bells

Yangqi Temple in the southwest of Hunan Lake has a huge copper bell with sound and shock in all fields. Wang Mian, a Qing Dynasty poet, wrote the poem "Autumn Flood in Hunan Bin": "It is a pleasant place for visitors, and all the kilns in Chaokou are recorded. Ask where the bell is in the frost, and the boatwoman points to Yang Qi Temple. That is to say. There were many temples around Xianghu Lake in ancient times, and there were many bells, but Yang Qi's bells were outstanding and most famous.

Song of Heng Tang

Hengtang, or Hengzhu Tang, is located on the outside of the dyke pond in the southwest of Xianghu Lake. Legend has it that yellow bamboo (a kind of luzhu) was planted on a pond and grew into a forest. Because of the homonym of "horizontal" and "yellow" in dialect, it is commonly known as "Huangzhutang". This is what Wei Ji's poem of the Ming Dynasty says, "Huangzhu is a faint fan Litang". Hengzhu pond is three miles long, both inside and outside the pond are rivers, reeds are overgrown, is a good place for fishing and crab catching. When the sun sets to the west, Hengtang is setting, fishing boats are singing late, a school of poetry and painting.

Shadow of the lake

On a sunny day, we climbed the Yahu Mountain in the center of Xianghu Lake. But the lake looks like a mirror, the blue sky and white clouds are reflected in the lake, and the water grass and fish swim through the clouds. The clouds and shadows are different in the morning and evening, and different in the four seasons. Their scenes are picturesque and changeable. In the Ming Dynasty, Zeng Yi had a poem: "There is no end to the lakes and mountains, and there are several times of low return to quiet and prosperous credit. The water is covered with smoke and clouds, and the fishing boats near the bridge are shaded by willows. That is to say.

Mountain foot kiln smoke

Xianghu clay is a good material for making bricks and tiles. Lakeside residents have always made pottery as their business, and there are many kilns around the lake. At dusk, the smoke of the hillside kiln near the lake is dim, and it has become the unique scenery of Xianghu Lake. Huang Yuanshou's poem Xianghu Zayong in the Qing Dynasty says, "New fire is added to the kiln at dusk, and light smoke is scattered into clouds for half a day." That is to say.
