When you mention Changsha, what do you think of?
Taste shrimp, stinky tofu, mango Taiwan… still
I am thinking that all those who have not been to Changsha have no understanding of Changsha. I think these can represent Changsha. In fact, Changsha has a lot of history that you don’t know. Changsha is not only the land of the “National Treasures” cultural relics, but also the birthplace of the “Yuelu Academy”, the head of the four major colleges in China.
Changsha has a history of three thousand years of city and the same city site. It is known as the hometown of Qujia, the famous city of Chu and Han, and the Xiaoxiang Temple. It is the first historical and cultural city announced by the State Council. The history of thousands of years makes it not only an irreplaceable position in the history of Hunan civilization, but also makes it bloom in the history of Chinese civilization.
In the summer vacation, take the children to Changsha, visit the ruins of the Charcoal River, learn about the history of the Western Dynasty, appreciate the rhyme of the book, and feel the profoundness of the Chinese millennium civilization. I have to feel that the ancients left spiritual wealth and valuable experience that our later generations did not use. Do your best.

DAY 1 : Watching the ancient charm of the charcoal, let you recreate the classic history story
The history of the Western Zhou Dynasty has an indelible foothold in the dynasties of the dynasties. It can be said that it is the epoch of the development of slavery and the sharp period of various social contradictions. The creation of various great inventions not only represents the crystallization of human wisdom. It also opened a new chapter for the Zhou Dynasty.
Based on the splendid history and culture of the Western Zhou Dynasty, the theme of the “Charcoal Ages” is based on the legendary story of the “four sheep Fangzun” of the country. It has shaped the heroine Ning Yu to cast his own for the purpose of casting the four sheep, respecting the lover and the Zhou people. Life, Wu Wang and Ninger’s love story spanning the millennium is moving and tears. The stage uses advanced sound, light, electricity and other scientific and technological means. Hundreds of actors are performing in a three-dimensional space of water, land and air. A legendary charcoal legend.
The first game: “On the River Island”
“Guan Guanyu, in the river of the continent. My lady, the gentleman is good.” The screaming of the singer took us through the millennium and came to the beautiful charcoal river. The ancient “Book of Songs” was sung here, a group. The girl sings and dances between the grasses of Bisang. The young Wuwang and the beautiful Ninger are here to love and love each other.
The second game: “Charcoal Love”
Under the instigation of his own self, the king of the king cooked the brother of the king of Wu, and on the condition of the survival of Zhou Guo, he coerced the king of Wu to cast the four sheep. In order to save the lover of Zhou Guo’s people, Ning Er for the husband’s generation, staged a fascinating tangled charcoal love.
The third game: “妲己艳舞”
On the day of the completion of Lutai, Wu Wang offered the palace to the king of the four kings. The king of the king was happy, set up a wine pool in the deer, and feasted the four princes. In the gentle township where the paper is drunk, a major change in the historical pattern of the Shang and Zhou dynasties is quietly brewing…
Game 4: The Battle of Makino
In 1046 BC, Wu Wang pro-class three hundred chariots, three thousand tigers, four thousand five thousand, with hundreds of thousands of kings of the king, decisive battle in Makino, the history of the “war of the wilderness.” This is an example of a history of small wins, weak wins, and preemptive strikes, which have had a profound impact on China’s historical process.
End: “Love in Ningxiang”
The long, charcoal river has been flowing for three thousand years, and the stories of heroes and beauty are sung here. Truth, goodness and beauty, persistence and persistence, dedication and love, have affected the Ningxiang people from generation to generation. This is the hometown of legend, the hometown of Ninglang: Ningxiang.
In this story, there is a sorrowful sorrow of the country, a lingering sorrow of life, a sorrow and anger of the hatred of the country, and a fierce and fierce enthusiasm of the king of Wu, reappearing the love and hatred of 3,000 years ago.

Take a taxi to the Oriental Red Square of Hunan University. Opposite is the towering statue of Mao Zedong. To the left is the road up the mountain.
Yuelu Academy covers an area of 21,000 square meters. Among them, the garden architecture has profound Hunan cultural connotation.

The spirit of the culture of the breeder has an elegant and simple style. There are many small shops and restaurants on the mountain road. It is recommended to buy some water and fruit to lead. If you are tired, you can sit down and have some physical strength.
Most of the existing buildings are relics of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The main buildings include the head gate, the second gate, the lecture hall, the semi-school, the teaching zhai, the Baiquanxuan, the Yushulou, the Xiangshui school hall, and the temple. They are divided into lectures, books, and The three parts of the supply, each part connected to each other, together as a whole, fully shows the grandeur of the ancient Chinese architecture.
The Yuelu Academy, a millennium school, is a historical record of the talents of Sanxiang people. In the evening, the singer “Stay in the love of Fenglin, the frost is red in February,” and keep a long-standing old man. That scene is even more fascinating.
Within the Yuelu Academy, there is the Chinese Academy Museum, which is the only museum in China that displays the history of Chinese academies and the history of cultural education.

Bring children here during the holidays to learn about its millennial cultural heritage and cultural atmosphere.

Martyrs, great men.
Standing in front of the front door of the college where the Hunan University students are proud of, and the “only Chu talented, Yusi is Sheng” this classic couplet, take a photo.
