Brief Introduction to the Old City of Hetuala

"Hetuala" is Manchu, meaning Henggang in Chinese. Located in Xinbin Manchu Autonomous County, it is known as the "first capital city of the Qing Dynasty" in the history circle. It was built by Nur Hachi, the Taizu of the Qing Dynasty. The city pool is built on a hill going East-West according to the situation. The steep cliffs, surrounded by water on three sides, are easy to defend and difficult to attack. The interior of the city is high in the South and low in the north, surrounded by high walls. The inner city is Friday and the outer city is ten li. There are nine gates in the ten miles around the city, namely the South three gates, the north three gates, the east two gates and the West one. The Eight Banners elite troops are stationed in the outer city, and there are a number of stations, schools, and warehouse areas. There are Constable houses built outside the city and inside the city. There are many palace buildings in the city, such as Khan palace, eight flag yamen, Guan Yu Temple, Town God's Temple, Qiyun academy, Confucious'temple, etc. The Dayamen of Khan Palace is octagonal, commonly known as the "Golden Ruan Palace".

In 1616, Nurhachi ascended the throne to call Khan and founded the golden kingdom of later Jin Dynasty. In 1619, Nurhachi commanded the Salhu War, which was related to the fate of the Qing Dynasty. It laid a solid foundation for the future competition in the Central Plains and the unification of China. On the west side of Dayamen in Khan Palace, there is a deep pool with broad water and delicate lotus fragrance. Golden carp are all over the pool. On the East side, there is a clear pool under the steep slope. The scenery of Xitan Dongchi is just human. The Dayamen of the Khan Palace is like a dragon head. The two Honghong and Bishui rivers are just like the dragon's eyes. Therefore, they are the epitome of the "Divine Dragon's Two Eyes".

After the Qing Dynasty, in Hetuala, there were also co-leaders'yamen, directors' general judgement yamen, blocking the cabinet words and so on. The city once had a population of more than 100,000, with bustling businessmen and businessmen of ten miles, showing a flourishing scene. After the Qing army entered the customs, Hetuala was called Xingjing, with full-time guardians. However, in the 1904 war between Japan and Russia, the Tsarist army destroyed the ancient city completely, and the original style and features disappeared. Now it has been partially restored. The earth road in the city was replaced by the bluestone road. The preserved ancient elm trees and the newly laid lawn make the whole city pool look both historical and modern. The Dayamen of the Khan Palace has been rebuilt on its original site. The "King's Well of Khan (Rare) which has been praised as"the drinker of thousands of troops and horses"has gone through 400 years of ups and downs.

Main attractions

Dayamen of Khan Palace

Daya Gate of Khan Palace is octagonal in shape. It is the place where Nurhachi ascended the throne and called Khan. It was built in 1603.

On the first day of the first month of the first lunar month of 1616, Nurhachi ascended the throne here and called him Khan. He established his country as Houjin and his year as destiny.

Nur'harchi strategized here, issued orders, governed the state, studied military aircraft and accepted the surrender, which laid a solid foundation for the march into Liao-Shen unified Northeast Nuzhen.

On April 13, 1618, Nurhachi burned incense with "Seven Great Hatreds" and swore an oath to Varming. The next year (February 1619), the Ming Dynasty sent 80,000 soldiers and horses, known as 470,000 troops, to besiege Hetuala, when Nurhachi had only 60,000 soldiers and horses. After weighing the enemy and ourselves, we should adopt the strategy of "coming by a few routes, I will go only one way" to defeat the Ming Army with fewer wins and more wins. This is the famous Salhu War in history. Nurhachi did not satisfy the present situation after he settled his capital here. He moved to Jiefancheng, Saerhu, Liaoyang in 1621 and Shenyang in 1625. Among these cities, the old city of Hetuala was called the old city.

In the middle of the main hall of the Dayamen Hall of the Khan Palace, Nurhachi ascended the throne of Khan. In front of the throne, Nurhachi read and recited the Dragon script. On both sides of the Dragon script, there are lotus wax tables, smoking stoves and incense pavilions with crane titles. Eight banners were placed on both sides of the throne. In the Late Jin Dynasty, the Eight Banners were not only the flags of eight leaders fighting, but also the eight organizations under Nurhachi's leadership. In 1601, Nurhachi created four banners: yellow, red, white and blue. By 1615, it added four banners, which were set up as eight banners. The Eight Banners'organization had a great characteristic, that is, it could integrate production, regime and military affairs. At that time, Nurhachi was the supreme commander of the Eight Banners. He alone commanded the Zhenghuang and Xihuang flags, while Huangtaiji was the Zhengbai flag. Later, Zheng Huang, inlaid Huang and Zheng Bai became the top three banners, and their status was relatively higher among the eight banners. The eight banners could be left-wing and right-wing. The left-wing was the four banners of Zheng Huang, Zheng Bai, inlaid white and Zheng Blue; the right-wing was the four banners of inlaid Huang, Zheng Hong, inlaid red and inlaid blue. Arranged according to the five elements, the two yellow flags are located in the north and take Tukeshui; the two white flags are located in the East and take Jinkemu; the two red flags are located in the West and take Firekejin; and the two blue flags are located in the south. The position of the Eight Banners can not be reversed. In those years, Nu just sat here and gave orders, accepted Minister Belle's worship, and formulated a series of policies suited to the national conditions and conformed to the people's will, which laid a solid foundation for future marches into the Central Plains.

Khan Palace

The Khan King's Palace is located on the east side of the Dayamen of the Khan Palace. There are four buildings. The east one is the dormitory of the Khan King and his concubine, and the West three are the places where the Khan King holds sacrificial activities.

According to historical records, King and Princess Khan slept in Nankang in winter and in Beikang in summer. There were Kang tables and fire basins opposite Kang where King Khan smoked and tasted tea. In the west, there were Wanzi Kang connected from north to South and west. Manchu called it Tuwa. It had two functions. On the one hand, it could solve the problem of sitting, living and on the other hand, it could heat up through Kang. When you go to a Manchu family, you must remember that you can either sit in Beikang or Nankang, but you must not sit in Xiaokang in the west, because the Manchus usually worship ancestral gods in the west. In order to show respect, you can't put any sundry things on the table, and no one can sit. The yellow cloth on the west wall is called the Yellow Mantle, and below it is the shrine.

The family sacrifices in the Qing Dynasty were divided into morning sacrifices and evening sacrifices. The portraits of Guan Gong were hung in the morning sacrifices. The Manchus regarded Guan Gong as the God of protection, and the God idols of Mother Foto were hung in the evening sacrifices. In the great sacrifices, we must invite shamans, shamans to wear God hats, waist, gods, bells, hands, drums, songs, and dance. At the same time, we must prepare a pure black pig to tie in the God case. After the wine is heated up, we will irrigate the pig ears, and the pig ears will be stimulated by the hot wine. The head will shake violently, and the voice will be heard in the mouth. Clean, cut into square pieces and boiled in two big pots in the north. When boiled, meat was boiled in white water without any condiments. After boiling, meat was served in the trough on the table. After that, people who attended the sacrifices came to eat together and did not touch the condiments when they had eaten in the past.

Zhengbai Qiyamen

Zhengbai Qiyamen is situated on the high platform on the east side of Dayamen in Khan Palace. It is a quadrangle building with green bricks and tiles and hard hills. Zhengbai Banner is one of the top three banners in the eight banners. Zhengbai Banner Yamen is the main office of Zhengbai Banner dealing with military and political affairs.

It is refreshing and sweet. It is cold in winter and cool in summer. Khan Wang Jing, known as "thousands of troops and horses do not drink". This well is the only one in the old city of Hetuala, which has been used by both military and civilians since ancient times. In this city, Nurhachi was named "Khan King Well" because it was called "Jianyuan Khan". There are many magical legends about this well.

Khanwangjing is slightly rectangular. It is superimposed with colored wood and tussah wood.

The skirt is about 30 centimeters above the ground and the thickness of the skirt is about 8 centimeters. It is a very rare ancient wooden spring well in China so far.

Tucker's former residence

Tucker's former residence was the birthplace of Nurhachi, who was born in the front room of a grass house in 1559. The whole building reflects the characteristics of Manchu dwellings, "pocket room, Wanzikang, smoke pipe out on the ground". The pocket room opens the door in the East and walks westward like a pocket. This is mainly to keep the room at a constant temperature. Wanzikang, a Kang connected on three sides of the South and northwest, can not only solve the problem of residents'sitting, sleeping and living, but also raise the indoor temperature through a lot of Kang noodles. "Former residence" shows the daily necessities of the Manchu people in the past. Among them, "three big monsters" are the most distinctive. The first one is that the window paper is pasted outside; the second one is that the children are raised; and the third one is that the big girl holds a cigarette bag.


Confucian temple is one of the seven great temples built in Nuerhachi, Taizu of the Qing Dynasty. It is also called Confucian temple. It is the first Confucian temple in the Qing Dynasty. A Manchu leader was so pious to the cultural predecessors of the Han nationality, whose purpose was to meet the needs of the regime's rule.

In order to accelerate the feudalization of the Jin Dynasty, Nurhachi adopted religious means, widely absorbed and integrated the Han culture of the Central Plains, and highly respected Confucianism and Han culture. The old city of Hetuala was soon built on Gaofu in the southeastern corner of the inner city. The Confucian Temple of that year was magnificent and magnificent. But it was destroyed in the war. The temple we saw was rebuilt on its original site in 2002. Dacheng Hall is the main building of the Confucius Temple.

The Eastern and Western Chambers worship 77 ancient Confucians and 79 sages. There are three sacred shrines behind Dacheng Hall to worship ancestors.
