Dragon King Temple

    Dragon King Temple is located in Zaohe, an ancient town 20 kilometers northwest of Suqian City, Jiangsu Province. It was built in the reign of Shunzhi in Qing Dynasty and rebuilt in 1684. The building group is a sacrificial building built by the emperors of Qing Dynasty to pray for the Dragon King to "calm the waves and eliminate the flood", so it is named "the Dragon King Temple of Anlan". Because Emperor Qianlong visited Jiangnan six times and stayed here five times, it is also called "Qianlong Palace". Experts from the provincial cultural relics department have repeatedly inspected and demonstrated the palace of the Dragon King temple. They believe that the palace of the Dragon King Temple is one of the northern architectural complexes of Qing Dynasty with high specification, large scale, relatively intact and high value among the numerous Qianlong palaces in China. In 2001, the State Council announced it as a national key cultural relics protection unit. From 2012 to 2013, more than 70 million yuan was invested to build the Qianlong Jiangnan Grand View Garden, renovate the surrounding environment, and re arrange the internal exhibition, so as to better protect the main body of Longwang temple palace, enrich the tour content, deepen the historical and cultural connotation, expand the rest space, and improve the overall landscape quality. In June 2014, with the successful application of the Grand Canal for world heritage, Longwangmiao palace became the only world cultural heritage on the Grand Canal in Suqian. In January 2015, it was rated as a national 4A scenic spot.
