Beginning August 20, 2008, the 232-year-old Gongwangfu Mansion will be open to the public for the first time. In the previous 20 days, King Gong s house will mainly receive cultural relic experts to collect opinions and suggestions after the renovation .
Previously, only the Palace of King Gong s Palace was open to the public, and the fare was 20 yuan. After August 20th, the public can purchase a ticket for about 30 yuan, and after viewing the Wangfu Garden, they can walk into the residence of Gongwangfu where Heji once lived and see its luxury. According to the person in charge of King Gong s Mansion, after August 20, the fare may be adjusted appropriately at around 30 yuan, but it will not change much. In addition , people with disabilities can enter the park at half price.
King Gong s Mansion is on the south side of Wangfu Garden. After entering, you can see three roads: middle, east and west, which run through the courtyard. Yesterday, Wu Jie, deputy secretary of the Party Committee of the King Gong Mansion Management Center, introduced to reporters seven highlights of the King Gong Mansion.
I stepped into the mansion, and the first thing I saw was the head palace. The head of the palace was inlaid with 63 golden door spikes. Wu Jie said that the palace door of the imperial palace was 981 nails, which shows that He You chose to use 793. With the lion head armrest, when you push in the door, you can t help but approach the ancient palace door.
Pushing the palace gate at the beginning, Gong an Palace, the main building of King Gong s Mansion, is right in front of you. The Yin an Temple is the most important building in the palace. It is used to hold major celebrations such as Chinese New Year and Birthday. During the Lantern Festival in 1921, due to the burning of incense, the Yin an Temple and the East and West Side Temples were all burned. It was still in ruins two years ago.
The newly built Yin an Temple has a magnificent vigor, with green glazed tiles on the top of the palace, and golden dragons painted under the eaves. According to experts, due to the lack of historical materials related to Yin an Temple, the hall that people now see was determined by many experts based on the leftover foundation and historical data.
The most visible is the eaves color painting of the inner and outer eaves of the light room. The eaves color painting technology is the highest in the country. During the Qing Dynasty, this place was the place where the Emperor Daoguang rested after the dead. After the renovation, it will be used to display the historical items that record the palace of King Gong. The golden patterns under the eaves in the hall are all plated real gold, Wu Jie introduced.
Wu Jie introduced that Duo Fu Xuan is the place where Prince Gong met guests. The furnishings in the house are all based on historical photos and originals. At present, many historical photographs of King Gong s Mansion are on display in Duo Fu Xuan.
He s son married Gu Lun and Princess Xiao, but there has been controversy about where the princess lives. We believe that these paintings prove that the princess lives in Ledaotang. Wu Jie said that during the repair, he found that Ledaotang was on the beam. Gold-colored phoenix paintings representing princess status. Today, the four glass tops cover Jinfeng s colorful painting, which is convenient for visits and protects.
The main house of Yunxi Road is Xi Jinzhai. The most historical memory is Xi Jinzhai. According to records, He Xi s Article 13 guilt is to cover this Xi Jinzhai with nanmu. According to the records, the eunuchs sent the eunuchs to inspect the building of the Forbidden City at that time, and then ordered the craftsmen to completely imitate the construction of the Ningshou Palace of the Forbidden City. This time it was rebuilt, the Xijin Zhaiyuan was huge and magnificent.
The Shuifa Building on the west road is a small regret for this reconstruction. According to records, the two-story building once contained goldfish ponds, rockery, and streams, and the walls were covered with exquisite murals, which is the most unique landscape of the entire Wangfu. We tried to rebuild the garden in the building twice without success. Due to incomplete documentation, it was the only landscape that could not be restored in this overhaul.
King Gong s Mansion was built in 1776, also known as Cuijinyuan. The complete King Gong Mansion consists of a mansion and a garden, with a total area of 5.7 hectares. Gong s first master was a kind man, who was inherited by his son Feng Shen Yin De after his death. Afterwards, Prince Gong Yi lived successively. In 1982, King Gong s Mansion was listed as a national key cultural relics protection unit by the State Council. In 1988, the part of the Wangfu Garden was opened to the public, but the mansion was closed.
