Historical legends

19971; 327693; Shippo Old Street

Seven treasures were formed in the later Han Dynasty, developed in the early Song Dynasty and flourished in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, with a history of more than 1000 years. As the important town of Songjun in history, Qibao has rich cultural heritage.

There is a popular saying of "seven treasures" among the people, that is, flying Buddha, bell, Golden Lotus Sutra, sacred tree, Golden Chicken, Jade axe and jade chopsticks. (in addition, there is a legend that at the beginning of the seven treasures, there were eight treasures. Because one was stolen, it was called seven treasures. Because those who know are old, and because of the age, this legend has no way to be verified.)

The flying Buddha is actually the Tathagata iron Buddha of Nanjiao temple. It's said that it came from the sky. It was actually raised and cast by Xu pan, a native of Wanli town in the Ming Dynasty; (now hidden in Qibao Temple)

It's said that Bo Cha, the abbot of Qibao temple, was floating from the river when the bell system was in Yongle of Ming Dynasty.

The Golden Lotus Sutra was written by the princess of Qian Liu, king of Wuyue, in Gongkai with gold powder.

Catalpa tree is a thousand year old tree, which is located in the original seven Treasures Temple.

These four are real objects.

The legend of Jade axe has something to do with the construction of Puhui Tangqiao. At the beginning of the bridge, it was difficult to combine the arches. When the craftsmen had no choice, they came to the old man with white hair and picked up a butcher's axe from the Qiaotu shop and threw it under the bridge to lay the foundation of the bridge. The Tangqiao was built.

Jade chopsticks said that in ancient times, the Emperor gave a pair of jade chopsticks to the meritorious officials, which can drive away poison and avoid evil. The meritorious officials hid them in the East Bridge Post of Jiangjia bridge in the north of the town, and then they were stolen, leaving a pair of chopsticks on the post.

Jinji said that there were seven jars of gold and eight jars of silver hidden under gaonitun in the north of the town, which were guarded by Jinji. The gold and silver buried must be excavated by the family of nine sons and nine daughters in law. It means that the foundation industry will last forever and that nine things will return to one.
