Luoyang Mingtang & Tiantang Scenic Area was built on the site of the Sui and Tang Dynasty Palace in the past, and became a must-see in Luoyang. Here is Empress Wu Zetian’s political center in the capital of Luoyang, the scenic spot mainly contains two buildings, Mingtang and Heaven. The Ming Hall is the main palace of the imperial palace ruled by Wu Zetian, also known as “Vientiane Shrine”. Heaven is Wu Zetian’s royal hall of worship and the tallest building in ancient Chinese history.

At the beginning of the night with lanterns, looking at heaven from this perspective, there is another kind of beauty. The golden pavilion, which can be seen from a distance, tells us that this is a building related to Buddhism. In addition, many of my friends saw “The Great Empire of Di Renjie”. The giant Buddha in the film really exists in the building in front. The building in front of it is just a protection display built to protect the heavenly ruins of the Wu Zetian period of the Tang Dynasty.

Mingtang is the main hall of Luoyang imperial palace during the Wu Zetian period of the Tang Dynasty, also known as Vientiane shrine. Mingtang is a ritual building of Confucianism. It was a place of ancient emperor Mingzheng and religion. All ceremonies such as sacrifices, pilgrimages, celebrations, and elections were held here. How can the Mingtang interior be summed up with a “luxury”, but this is only a site protection building. When you reach the first floor, you can see the Tongxinzhukeng site, as well as an introduction to Wu Zetian’s achievements during the Wu Zhou period. There is also a free arc screen movie.
