Huating County in the Tang and Song Dynasties, today's Songjiang City in Shanghai, its most prosperous place is probably in today's Fangta Park area. The Fangta Garden is famous for its tower. This tower is very magical. It has been built in the Northern Song Dynasty for more than 900 years. It has escaped the bombing of the Japanese invaders and has not fallen, becoming the symbol of Songjiang.
Opposite the Fangta Garden, there is also a quaint townhouse called the first floor of the Yunjian. This is the tower of the original Songjiang Prefecture Office. Now it is the school gate of Songjiang No. 2 Middle School. The tower was destroyed by the Japanese invaders and was later destroyed by the typhoon. Only some of the bases were left. The current tower was later built.
The first floor of the cloud room can be visited, free of charge, but there is almost nothing on the tower, and two photos are taken down.
Fangta Garden as a park, history is not too long, but the square tower is the building of the Northern Song Dynasty, has been more than 900 years. Before the Fangta, it used to be a temple. During the Five Dynasties, it was called Xingguo Changshou Temple. Song Dazhong Xiang Fu (1008~1016) was renamed Xingshengjia Temple.
Fangta is the temple tower of Xingshengjiao Temple. It was built between Song Xining and Yuanyou (1068~1093), with brick and wood structure.
As long as many people mention Shanghai, they take it for granted that the history of the city is very short, from the beginning to the present, but it has been only two hundred years. However, do you know? Known as the "root of Shanghai", Songjiang District has a long history and has a long history. In Shanghai, there is even a saying that "10 years to see Pudong, 100 years to see the Bund, and millennium to see Songjiang".
Two days ago, I went to visit Fangtayuan, one of the most historic spots in Songjiang Ancient City. I believe that if you have been here, you will never feel that Shanghai is a city with a short history. It is.
Shanghai Fangta Garden is a kind of ornamental garden with many Chinese classical architectures centered on the national-level cultural relics Song Dynasty Fangta (formerly known as Xingshengjiao Pagoda). There are not only various Shanghai-level cultural relics units in the park. For example, there are many large-scale brick carvings in the Ming Dynasty, as well as many district-level cultural relic units in Songjiang District, such as the Wangxian Bridge in the Song Dynasty, the Lanrui Hall in the Ming Dynasty, the Tianzhu Palace in the Qing Dynasty, the Chenhuacheng Temple in the Qing Dynasty, and so on.
Fang Tower was built in Xingshengjia Temple during the Song Dynasty from Xining to Yuanyou (AD 1068-1094), so it was originally called "Xingshengjiao Pagoda", which has a history of nearly a thousand years, from 1975 to 1977. Years of recovery and overhaul. The square tower is a brick-and-wood structure with a height of 42.5 meters and 4 sides and 9 levels. Because the plane of the tower is square, it is commonly known as the square tower. It is a large tower and a thin tower. It reflects the characteristics of the tower in the Tang Dynasty and is beautiful and unusual. People have been unforgettable for a long time.
Fangta is famous for its "exquisite beauty" in the southeast. It looks like a young girl in a long skirt and a slim skirt. The "Zhuzhi Ci" of the Songjiang poet Huang Wei in the Qing Dynasty is such a tribute to the Fangta: "The offshore floating figure 36, how is the square tower the most exquisite." Two sentences have vividly portrayed the artistic image of Fangta. The artistic treatment of the
square tower is not limited to the tower body and the tower tower. It also has many special treatments, such as: for the beauty of the tower body, the tower is removed from the cumbersome body, and the stairs are designed in the tower body. . The connecting lines of the two corners of the tower to the nine corners are parabolic arcs, called "roll brakes". Its tower brakes are also different. Like the tower body, it is more slender than other towers.
The front of the square tower is an S-shaped lake, stretching from west to east, the lake is flowing, showing Tower shadow, the scenery is very beautiful.
