China’s land, three mountains and five mountains all over China, no matter strange, is dangerous, is jun or show, or strange, its personality is very distinct, the most people enjoy talking about is “five mountains”. But on the Chinese land, there is such a mountain is very mysterious, not only is there a world wonder, and “water monster”, is banned for more than 200 years.
Changbai mountain, located in jilin province, is the highest mountain in northeast China. Changbai mountain was first recorded in China more than 4,000 years ago. It was called “wuxian mountain” in the classic of mountains and seas, “tutai mountain” in the northern wei dynasty, “taibai mountain” in the tang dynasty, and “changbai mountain” in the jin dynasty. Changbai mountain has been the focus of attention since ancient times, but it was banned for more than 200 years in the qing dynasty.
Compared with the remote northern wei and tang dynasties, changbai mountain became famous from the jin state and later became the birthplace of the manchu and the sacred mountain of manchu culture. Before the qing dynasty, royal families held some sacrificial activities in changbai mountain during the jin dynasty. But by the qing dynasty, the sacred mountain was banned for more than 200 years.
The qing dynasty was founded by the manchus, the descendants of the jin people. Is it related to tianchi “water monster”? In the qing dynasty “changbai mountain jianggang zhilu” recorded: “since tianchi there is a monster overlying the water, golden, the head as big as a basin, square top has a horn, long beard, hunters think it is a dragon. Also describes tianchi and the sea in communication, often appear and appear dragon and so on.
Some tourists believe that changbai mountain was banned by the qing dynasty for more than 200 years, which may be related to the “water monster”. Changbai mountain as manchu culture sacred mountain, this “water monster” may be “divine dragon”, in order to protect the holy land, then choose to close the mountain. But is history really like this?
Although tianchi has been “water monster” rumors, from its formation of the lake up to now, constantly have witnesses claim to see “water monster”, some even describe its size, but “water monster” is still a rumor. But the qing dynasty chose to seal off the mountain, if the superstition “water monster”, rather than to protect the dragon vein.
In the jin dynasty, changbai mountain was regarded as the holy mountain, and the royal family’s sacrificial activities had already been on a scale. The ancestors of nurhachi (the founder of the qing dynasty), the founder of the later jin dynasty, had been settled in changbai mountain, which led to the later feudal emperors of the qing dynasty firmly believed that this mountain was the dragon vein of the qing dynasty, and no one was allowed to enter it, and troops were stationed there.
Ancient people not only believed in feng shui, but also studied it. They believe that the shape of the mountain is similar to the dragon vein, and changbai mountain is the world’s largest hidden dragon vein, known as the “sea dragon.” The qing dynasty banned changbai mountain in order to prevent the han people from destroying the dragon vein.
But in addition to protecting the dragon veins, some scholars believe that changbai mountain was actually a reserve of the qing dynasty. Changbai mountain area fertile land, rich in resources, once the war, these resources are the best rear supplement. Besides, though the capital was moved to Beijing, they could at least retreat to the northeast if they were expelled.
In addition, changbai mountain is in a superior geographical position, and the northeast is very close to Mongolia. The qing government was afraid of colluding with the han people and the mongols, so it closed the mountain to prevent its dominant position from being threatened. Therefore, the changbai mountain at that time, except for the qing dynasty emperor to worship, no one else can enter.
Some people believe that the qing government did this to preserve the pure blood of the manchus. But whatever the cause, history has no definitive truth. However, the closure system of more than 200 years has caused a great impact on changbai mountain, and both advantages and disadvantages.
Many of my friends believe that the ban on changbai mountain seems “barbaric” and “unconfident”, but it has effectively protected the animal and plant resources and environment here. In 2010, changbai mountain was awarded the “man and biosphere” natural reserve and an international a-level nature reserve by the United Nations. & have spent
Erdaobaihe town, located at the foot of the mountain, clearly shows the beauty of the environment and the natural flavor of the original ecology. Historically, erdaobaihe town is also banned. But today, it’s one of the 20 must-see towns in the world, and the scenery can rival that of a European town. After visiting changbai mountain, most tourists will come here to enjoy their leisure life, and many of them will buy houses and live here.
But at that time, the qing dynasty, never thought of erdaobaihe town such a back garden, also did not think of their manchu cultural holy land has become a domestic and foreign tourist attractions, every year to attract a large number of visitors in and out, one of the most curious is “water monster” rumors. & have spent
In order to cater to the curiosity of tourists, changbai mountain scenic area specially created a pair of lovely “tianchi water monster”, as changbai mountain mascot. These two pairs of “water monster” figure in the scenic area gate, the main peak transfer point, including the changbai mountain waterfall area have put, which caused a lot of tourists’ attention, more people on the “water monster” firmly believe that the qing dynasty ban changbai mountain, because of the “water monster”.
