This season is actually very suitable for galloping on the prairie of Inner Mongolia. Compared with the high temperature of 42 degrees in Hangzhou, the climatic environment of Erdos in Hohhot is less than 30 degrees, which is like paradise, which is really enviable. In addition to the unforgettable natural scenery here, the cultural landscape that is completely different from the Jiangnan area also has its own unique charm. On the grasslands of Yijinhuoluo Banner in Ordos, there is such a place covering an area of 5.5 hectares – the Mausoleum of Genghis Khan.
The Mausoleum of Genghis Khan was historically known as the “Eight White Room of Genghis Khan”. It was originally composed of eight movable felt tents and was built in the early 13th century After that, it began to move in the north and south of the desert, and settled in Mu-Ordos in the middle of the 15th century. It was not until the early Qing Dynasty that it was transferred to the Huge Grassland in Bayinchang, Yijinhuoluo Banner. Finally, in 1954, the prototype of the majestic cemetery was officially built. After years of expansion and development, it finally became a large-scale cultural tourism scenic spot in the grasslands of northern Xinjiang.
Its main body consists of three yurt-style palaces lined up, and the halls are connected by corridors. On the domes of the three yurt-style palaces, the golden glazed tiles are particularly dazzling in the bright sunlight. At the top is the cloud head flower made of blue glazed tiles, showing us the colors and patterns advocated by the Mongolian nation.
After reading the information, I learned that the main hall of the Mausoleum of Genghis Khan It is 26 meters high and has a double-layer eaves structure; the east and west halls are 23 meters high and have a single-layer eaves structure; the apse and corridor are 20 meters high; looking down from a height, the whole hall looks like an eagle, and the main hall looks like an eagle’s head and The body and the two side halls are like the wings of an eagle (unfortunately, my aerial video and photos were lost due to hard disk damage, so there should be a heartbroken voice-over here).
The statue of Genghis Khan is placed in the center of the hall. It is 5 meters tall, dressed in armor and war robes, with a sword on the waist, and is standing in the center of the hall. The apse is the sleeping palace, and there are four spiritual bags covered with yellow satin, which are dedicated to the spiritual pivots of Genghis Khan and his three wives. . There are also precious cultural relics such as the saddle used by Genghis Khan during his lifetime. However, because there was a clear warning sign prohibiting photography, I followed the rules and did not press the shutter indoors.
Genghis Khan’s original name was Boer Jijin · Temujin, the Khan of the Mongolian Empire. During his reign, he not only vindicated the tribal rebellion and unified the major tribes, but also led tens of thousands of iron cavalry to the south to destroy Song Jianyuan. And during its rule of the Yuan Dynasty, it expanded its territory to the whole of Asia and even Europe. Therefore, later generations rated it very highly, and even appeared in “Time Magazine” to crush the world’s most influential figures. His influence far exceeded that of Peter the Great, Julius Caesar, Napoleon and others. However, because the Mongolian people have always been popular with “secret burials”, no one knows where the real Genghis Khan’s mausoleum is. Now such a large-scale Genghis Khan mausoleum is actually just the tomb of his clothes!
We learned from the information that this cemetery not only has long been It has become a national key cultural relics protection unit, one of the top 40 tourist attractions in China, a national patriotic education base for 100 youths and the first batch of national AAAAA-level tourist attractions. andThe ritual of Genghis Khan here has been included in the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage list by relevant departments.
It is said that the tourist area from Yijinhuoluoqi’a Town to the Mausoleum of Genghis Khan has been opened Yi 12 bus, tourists and friends can take the Yi 12 bus to reach the tourist area of Daghis Khan Mausoleum conveniently. The following is the stop sign searched from the Internet for your reference.
The self-driving route to the Mausoleum of Genghis Khan is relatively clear and convenient. Running through it, the newly built Acheng East Line leads directly to Azhen and Kangbashi, whether it is Dongsheng Bus Station or Ordos Airport.
