遊不完的明孝陵

0


南京不愧\為中國四大古都之一,除了孫中山,明朝朱元璋、三國時代孫權也葬在此,還有石刻、湖景相伴,玩一天也玩不完。

明孝陵正正在中山陵旁邊,我只用了一小時便遊完中山陵,本想再多遊兩、三小時,下午兩時許\便「收工」返歸,誰知明孝陵比中山陵大上好幾十倍,還有各種各樣的景點,結果我要下午六時,才草草完結行程。

明孝陵,當然是明朝皇帝朱元璋之墓,但這裏不像中山陵,可以看到孫中山的遺體,我反反覆覆尋找,最後只在一塊磚牆上找到:「此山明太祖之墓」,但爬到山後卻是一片樹林,何來墓之有,想不到千里迢迢來到皇帝陵墓,卻無緣看到皇帝遺體。

基本上,陵墓沒有什麼看頭,只是看看明代的建築而已,反而最值得一遊的,是陵墓不遠處的神道石刻,兩旁豎立了許\多士兵、大臣們的石像,拐過一個彎,石刻變成了不同的動物,有馬、象、獅子、駱駝等等,不知代表何許\意思。少了一個導遊,對了解此地歷史果然遇到障礙。

本以為走出了神道石刻,便遊完了明孝陵,誰知還有乾坤。悠悠閒閒隨便逛逛,來到一個漂亮的庭園,發現三國時代孫權之墓竟然在此。我對孫權本來不太認識,但與弟弟玩了PS2的三國無雙後,在赤璧之戰中打不死的孫權,經常被我咒罵,想不到他的陵墓竟然在此﹗不過,我對這位偉人始終都是尊敬的,故仍給了他一個大鞠躬。孫權墓旁邊走廊,刻上了多幅三國故事的璧畫,行行走走當看故事,十分充實。

看看入場券的地圖,始知明孝陵還有一個紫霞湖,雖然兩腿已走得有點兒發麻,但若日後再來,便要再次買票,故還是忍耐一下,走上半山看看紫霞湖究竟是甚麼模樣。誰知來得大失所望,紫霞湖名字漂亮得惹人遐思,來到後竟發現是一個天然泳池,很多人扶老攜幼在此暢泳,而人多環境就自然污糟,紫霞湖的湖水,我也不敢隨便觸碰。反而在離開時,路過一個碑亭,豎立了很多石碑,原來是古代詩人顏真卿的手筆,能看到偉人的手筆,此行總算沒有白費。

孫權也是一代君主,但陵墓氣派卻比孫中山或朱元璋遜色﹗

孫權墓旁的石廊,一邊放滿三國故事的壁畫,一邊欣賞一邊了解歷史,極具教育意義。

Chee

My name is Chee. Add a "r" after the word, then it would become Cheer. This name is called by my friend in university and I like it very much. Why do I love this name? Easy. I always think cheer is important because life is limited and we should make every possible way to enjoy, play, and make ourselves happy. But, saying is easier than doing. Whenever you want to do one thing, something would happen and it will disturb what you are doing right now. You'll never guess what the thing would be. Especially a few people gather together, you'll never guess what they're thinking. More the people there are, more the mess it would be. I've learned the above lesson very very early, and I try not to mind what other's people thinking, but it's really really difficult. Today, I failed again. My friend made me unhappy. But I know I'll recover and back to my life again tomorrow after I had a good sleep. Maybe this is the way of escape since the problems haven't solved yet, but I believe there will be ways to solve the problems and you'll never believe that ways are not so complicated as you think. So cheer cheer cheer up, and life would become easy and happy. 「講左咁耐,都唔知大家明唔明講乜,不過唔明都唔緊要啦,做人難得糊塗嘛,又何必太在意我呢個傻婆講既野。」
