A wooden building with pure wood structure in our country does not need an iron nail in the whole building. I admire the wisdom of the ancients.

There is a Dongyue Temple in Wanrong County, Shanxi Province. I don’t know when this temple was built. There is no record in the history books. However, it is said that this temple existed in the Tang Dynasty. It was rebuilt during the Yuan Dynasty and was rebuilt many times during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The most beautiful place in the temple is an ancient wooden building. The whole building is made of pure wood without a single iron nail. It has witnessed the wisdom of ancient craftsmen. People who have seen this wooden building admire it very much. This wooden building in Dongyue Temple is called Feiyun Building. According to legend, it was built in the Tang Dynasty. The existing building was built in the Ming Dynasty and is a product left over from the Ming Dynasty. Another theory is that it was created by Lu Ban in the Spring and Autumn Period, and it was later rebuilt by successive dynasties, and it was able to survive until now. Feiyun Tower occupies a unique position in Chinese wooden buildings. It is called "South Tower and North Tower" together with Yingxian Wooden Tower, and has become a national key cultural relic protection unit. According to legend, Emperor Taizong Li Shimin led his troops to pacify the chaos. He passed through Wanrong County and stationed troops in Zhangweng, Jiedian and Gucheng. After the pacification was over, he built a pavilion in each of these three places to show off his martial arts. However, the two pavilions of Zhang Weng and the ancient city have long been destroyed by the war, and only the Jiedian Building is left. The Jiedian Building is the current Feiyun Building. It has been standing for hundreds of years since the Ming Dynasty. Rong County. There is a local saying in Wanrong County: "There is a Feiyun Tower in Wanrong, half inserted into the cloud", which describes the majestic and tall Feiyun Tower. When the weather is better, it can be seen from a few kilometers away. , Feiyun Tower has become a symbol of Wanrong County. There should be no one of the four famous buildings in China that can compare with the Feiyun Building. The first wooden building in my country is the Feiyun Building, which can be called the masterpiece of Chinese pavilion architecture. From the outside, Feiyun Building looks like a three-storey building, but the inside is actually five-storey, with a total height of about 23 meters. There are four sky-high pillars in the middle, which lead directly to the top of the building. The large and small joints are all set by tenon and riveting, which is extremely rare in ancient Chinese architecture. This is the wisdom of the ancients. I feel that it is too beautiful, the structure is ingenious, the craftsmanship is superb, and the shape is exquisite. It is difficult to find a second one in China. The Feiyun Building is the representative of the Dongyue Temple building complex. Such an important wooden building has been under the key protection of the state. It has been funded several times for repairs. More than 10 million yuan, mainly for reinforcement and repair, with few components replaced, try not to damage its original appearance. The four famous buildings in China are all modern buildings and cannot be compared with Feiyun Building at all, do you think? Shanxi is the best-preserved place for ancient buildings on the ground in my country. Many ancient buildings can be seen here, and tourists who come to Shanxi are a feast for the eyes. As a treasure in Shanxi, Feiyun Tower is not as famous as Yingxian Wooden Pagoda, so many people don't know it. You should not miss it when you come to Shanxi. However, there is an entrance fee for entering Dongyue Temple, about thirty or forty. There is no way. Chinese temples are all commercialized, and you can't do it without paying.
