•Stories and Facts: Reinterpretation of the Origin of the Horizontal Board Inscribed “Hui Wo Nan Li” of Xiangshan Temple, Huaibei
By Wang Tao (88)
Abstract: About the origin of the horizontal board inscribed “Hui Wo Nan Li(Let Huaibei People Be Blessed” currently preserved by Xiangshan Temple, Huaibei, Anhui, a locally popular explanation is that the board was inscribed by the Qianlong Emperor when he visited South China. The story is so popular that it serves as the foundation of people’s explanation of the boardand the 1999 version of Huaibei Chronicles actually included the story as a folktale with the title of “Origin of Hui Wo Nan Li.” However, folktales are different from historical facts. According to newly discovered documents, the author found that the Qianlong Emperor inscribed the board on the petition of Qiu Yuexiu, the then vice minister of finance, in the 23rd year of his reign. On the first day of the 24th year of Qianlong’s reign, the board was hung on the initiative of Gao Jin, the then provincial governor of Anhui. Thus the untruthful story is corrected and the folktale is distinguished from historical facts.
