Ming Tombs (Ming Dynasty Emperor's Mausoleum)

Origin of the name

Zhu Yuanzhang, the founding emperor of the Ming Dynasty, was built in Nanjing. After his death, he was buried in the Yang of Zhongshan, and he was called “Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum”. The second emperor Zhu Yunxuan (Jian Wendi) was sent to Nanjing for his uncle Zhu Xi’s name as “Jing Difficulty” (for the emperor to lift the crisis), and Jianwen’s emperor did not know what to do. Some people say that being a monk is a monk. In short, the whereabouts are unknown (this is an unsolved case in the history of the Ming Dynasty), so there is no mausoleum. The seventh emperor Zhu Xi, because his brother Emperor Yingzong, Zhu Xizhen was captured by Hua Tuo, had no ownership in the palace, and he was the emperor under the will of the Queen Mother and the Minister. After the British Emperor was put back, under the planning of the confidant partisan, engaged in a “change of the door”, the British ancestors restored, and took the emperor. Zhu Xi was killed and Ying Zong did not recognize him as an emperor. He also destroyed the mausoleum built in the Tianshou Mountain area. In the name of “king”, he was buried in Yuquan Mountain in the western suburbs of Beijing. In this way, two of the 16th Emperors of the Ming Dynasty were buried elsewhere. One of the whereabouts is unknown. The remaining 13 are buried in Tianshou Mountain, so they are called Ming Ming Tombs.

The word “edge” was mistakenly written when the later generations were repaired. Under the door, the base of the sacred seat is surrounded by a dry white jade railing. Its railing shape is the pillar of the dragon and phoenix carving, and the aquarius and three cloud-shaped slats. Under the four corners of the platform and under the railings of each railing, there are stone carving daggers (faucets) for drainage.

When the tomb was completed, the emperor was only 28 years old and was not officially opened until 1620. Dingling became one of the three largest cemeteries in the Ming Tombs. Its ground buildings occupy a total of 180,000 square meters. There are three courtyards in front and a tall city in the future. In front of the main entrance of the mausoleum is the three-legged white jade stone bridge. After crossing the bridge is a tall monument pavilion. There are more than 300 buildings around the pavilion, including the Priesthood Department, Zaiyan Pavilion and Dingling Supervision. Then there is the outermost wall of the cemetery – the outer Luocheng (the wall outside the wall).

The overall layout of the Mausoleum is also in the shape of the front round. On the periphery is a “outside Luocheng” that will include Baobao and Baocheng’s front yard. The city has an area of about 180,000 square meters. Qing Liangfen’s “Tomb of the Emperor’s Mausoleum” has described this outside city as follows: “The foundation of the wall is paved, the stone is all aragonite, the slippery is like new, the dust can’t be dyed. The left and right are the landscape, the flower, The dragons and phoenixes, the unicorns, the seahorses, the turtles and the snakes are strong (like), and they are not so eager to make a difference. It is also true that the wall is yellow and tiled, the bricks are arched, the hollows are inlaid, and the light is like jade. The change of Jiashen, the inch of the inch is destroyed, but it can not be destroyed.” Outer Luo City only has a front gate in the middle of the axis, which is the first door of the mausoleum. Its system, Huangwa, Zhu Xi, set the door of the coupon.

In the outer city of Luo, the lower part is Baocheng. Before the city, there were three-square courtyards in the outer city.

The first entrance to the courtyard, in front of a single There are wall-to-door shackles on the left and right sides. There are no building facilities in the courtyard. Before the courtyard (inside the outer city of Luo), there are three kitchens on the left and three on the right.

The second entrance to the courtyard, the front wall between the building of the door. It has five walls (26.47 meters wide) and two deep rooms (11.46 meters deep), and a lower base. On the base of the platform, the stone railings and the size daggers of the dragon and phoenix heads are fully equipped. There are also three stepping steps on the front and back.

The third enters the courtyard, and the main hall of the cemetery is built in the front wall.

Ming Zhaoling

The Ming Zhaoling Mausoleum is located in the foothills of Datun, and is the tomb of the emperor of the Ming Dynasty, the emperor of the Ming Dynasty, Mu Zongzhuang, Zhu Zaiyu (Yong Qing) and his three empresses. Zhaoling is the first large-scale restoration and restoration of the Ming Tombs and one of the officially opened tourist attractions in the Mausoleum.

The Zhaoling Mausoleum has a construction area of 35,000 square meters. There are complete Jingenmen, Yuen Hall and its East Hall, and Fangcheng, Minglou and Baoding. There are buried the 12th Emperor Muzong Zhu Zai and his three empresses.

After the demise of the Ming Dynasty, Zhaoling was twice destroyed. In 1644, in the war, the Minglou was burned; in the thirty-fourth year of the Qing Dynasty (1695), the rain was heavy, the thunder and lightning were mixed, and the temple and the two temples were struck by lightning. The mausoleum desperately saved. Only the two temples were saved, and the temple was completely burned. As the years went by, during the Qianlong period, the two temples and the Lingen Gate were successively damaged. In the 50th to the 52nd year of Emperor Qianlong (1785-1787), the Qing government rebuilt the Ming Tombs in order to ease ethnic conflicts. Zhaoling is also being repaired. From the analysis of the site, the only projects that were repaired at that time were the Minglou, the Lingenmen and the Lingen Temple. This re-construction, although the cemetery system was slightly more complete, changed the regulation of the original building.

The arches of the Minglou, according to the Ming Dynasty, the various tombs of the Ming Dynasty are all on the top of the squat, and the squats are heavy. After the repair, the Zhaoling Mausoleum became a single-winged, five-footed arch. A stone vault top has been added to the Ming Building. Although there were no major changes in the number of reconstruction hours, there were no major changes in the number of reconstructions. The ancestral hall, the original noodles are five (30.38 m) wide and four deep (16.77 m). After the reconstruction of the Qing Dynasty, the number of façades has not changed, but the scale has shrunk to 23.3 m. The depth was changed to three, and the scale was reduced to 11.92 meters. The lion door was originally three (18.44 m) wide and two deep (8.04 m). In the Qing Dynasty, the width was reduced to 12.52 m and the depth was reduced to 6.77 m. The two temples in the mausoleum and the sacred monuments in front of the mausoleum were not reconstructed, and the ruins were also dismantled. Only a week of the wall was built on the old pavilion around the stone. Since then, it has not been repaired for 200 years. The magnificent cemetery buildings of the past were full of desolate, leaving only the ruined Minglou and the mausoleum.

After about 7-11 years of operation in Yongling, the construction of Yongling was generally completed. After the completion of Yongling and the former seven tombs, there are indeed two unique features.

First of all, it is a grand scale. In ancient times, the size of the cemetery depends on the rules of the cemetery, the Ming House and the Baocheng. According to the records of the “Da Ming Hui Dian”, the diameter of Yongling Baocheng is 81 ft, the 裬恩殿 is a heavy seven, and the left and right halls are nine, respectively. Its regulation is second only to Changling, and more than offering, Jing, Yu, Mao , Thai, and Kang Liuling system. The five facades of the Yan En are equal to the Changling, and only the Tomb is the same.

In addition, outside the Fangyuan and Baocheng of Yongling, there is also a foreign Luocheng that was not found in the former Qiling. The system is “strengthen, the fine work of the meteorites, and the minds of Changling’s planning are not as good as it is.” Within the outer Luocheng, there are five kitchens in the left column and five in the right column. They are also modeled on the system of the deep palace and the alley. The ancients designed the outer Luocheng to bury the emperors in the outer Luocheng. The location of the burial was planned to be outside the Baoshan City. Before the Minglou, that is, the left and right walls of the Minglou, the left and right sides were in turn. And hey. Later, although the tombs of the Emperor’s emperors were not repaired in the outer city according to the original plan, the outer Luocheng was built according to the original plan.

The wall is set behind the square because it is not located in the voucher hole, before the tomb. The meteorite observation road of Shangdeng Minglou was changed to the left and right sides of Fangcheng located in Baocheng. Since the Xianling system does not pursue luxury, the predecessors mentioned that the Ming Dynasty was the simplest and the smallest of the Jingling, and it established a model for the Mingling architecture.

There is another characteristic of Mingxian Mausoleum. This is that the Yan’en Temple and the Fangcheng Minglou are not connected to each other in the courtyard. In front of the main hall, there is a courtyard, and two temples and a god furnace are built in front of the temple.

Security situation

On March 19, 2017, it broke the news in a WeChat group in a mausoleum in Beijing. Mingsi Lingshi Wusui became a “stone three supply”, and a pair of candlesticks were no longer in place. On March 20th, a media reporter went to Mingsi Ling to verify the site. The guardian said that the stone candlestick was taken away for repair. The relevant person in charge of the Ming Tombs District said that it will release relevant information in the afternoon.

On April 5, the Changping District Government confirmed the above speculation. Its official Weibo “Beijing Changping” released a message saying: On March 20, the district government learned that the Ming Tombs of Siling Stone Five for the 2 pieces of candlesticks were stolen, immediately organized a public security force to set up a task force to go all out to carry out the investigation. On April 8, the Beijing police reported that the case was broken. According to the report, at 11 o’clock on March 19, 2017, a citizen dialed 110 to reflect the theft of two candlesticks in the Ming Tombs of the Shiling Stone. The Beijing police set up a task force composed of the Municipal Criminal Investigation Corps, Changping Branch and other relevant departments to carry out case investigation.

As verified by the State Administration of Cultural Heritage, at 19 o’clock on June 24, 2016, a guardian of Siling discovered a pair of stone candlesticks during the inspection. After investigation by the public security organs, it was found that the exact time of theft was April 2016. In other words, after two months, the guards discovered that the candlestick was stolen.

After the Tomb of the Ming Tombs Office confirmed that the cultural relics were stolen, the Office of the Ming Tombs arbitrarily decided not to report to the competent department of cultural relics in accordance with the regulations, and did not report to the public security organs for investigation. Because it was discovered that the candlestick was stolen, it was the National Tourism Administration’s re-evaluation period after the rectification of the Ming Tombs. If the case was stolen, it may face risks including “5A being delisted”. It was not until March 20, 2017 that it was officially reported to the Changping District Government.

The State Administration of Cultural Heritage said that when the case was filed, the original security facilities of Siling had been completely smashed, and the defenses against human defense and physical defense were ineffective. In addition, the Ming Tombs had already occurred in the attempted stolen cultural relics, but failed to cause sufficient attention to the Sanxingling SAR Office, and did not promptly investigate and rectify potential safety hazards and loopholes.

On the afternoon of March 21, 2017, the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Cultural Relics set up a special inspection team to conduct a thorough investigation of the safety hazards of the Ming Tombs.

On April 29, 2017, it was learned from the Ming Tomb Town of Changping District that after the theft of the Siling Stone Five Candlesticks, from the beginning of this month to the end of September, the Ming Tombs will carry out a six-month inspection of cultural relics safety. The relevant person in charge also introduced that the Ming Tombs will introduce 8 kinds of advanced security technology and management methods such as light wave vibration and anti-theft system, infrared pulse alarm and electronic patrol system, and update the old monitoring equipment.
