is a great Chinese civilization with a history of 6000 years. Tracing the source began from the head of the three emperors; The Chinese surname Qianzhi Wanmai is derived from the Fuxi family of Taihao. Fuxi is the “cultural ancestor” of the Chinese nation, and the first surname in China is Fuxi’s self appointed “Feng”. More than 10000 surnames have appeared in history, and more than 3000 are still in use today. Tracing back to the origin, the surnames of Wan have the same root, which originates from Fuxi and is rooted in Huaiyang.

in recent years, Huaiyang county Party committee and county government of Henan Province have made active efforts in carrying forward Fuxi Culture, invested more than 300 million yuan, restored the original site of Fuxi mausoleum temple in Taihao, renovated various buildings, studied and sorted out systematic Fuxi cultural materials and cultural materials of the root of Chinese surnames. In October 2004, the first Chinese Surname Culture Festival was successfully held in Huaiyang, Henan Province, with the surname “root seeking” as the link and development as the theme. It received positive response and joint support from overseas Chinese and overseas Chinese, and reached a consensus of “all surnames have the same root and come from the emperor Xi”, thus forming the heat source effect of Chinese children and grandchildren coming to Huaiyang to seek roots and pay homage to their ancestors. In October 2005, with the theme of “paying homage to the ancestral mausoleum, looking for the roots of surnames, tasting the charm of Longhu Lake and appreciating the new appearance of the ancient city”, Huaiyang held the “China Huaiyang 2005 surname culture root seeking Tour”. This activity had a far-reaching impact on building Huaiyang Tourism brand, expanding and strengthening the cultural industry, attracting Chinese from all over the world to seek roots and worship ancestors, and realizing cross-strait reunification.

since this year, Huaiyang county Party committee and county government have actively applied to include Huaiyang County as a “holy land of Chinese root seeking” into the sequence and activity schedule of the Chinese cultural link project, so as to strengthen the blood ties of all Chinese Nationalities, and then promote the unification of the ancestral country and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. In mid August, the International Symposium on Chinese mythology, sponsored by the China Federation of literary and art circles, the China People’s Association and the Henan Federation of literary and art circles, was grandly held in Zhoukou. More than 150 experts and scholars from Germany, Belgium, Finland, the United States, Mexico, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Macao and other countries and regions came to Huaiyang from all directions with their research results in the protection of human oral and intangible cultural heritage and made a special trip to Huaiyang Taihao mausoleum.

Here, there is the “first mausoleum in the world” Taihao Fuxi mausoleum; There is the ancient city pingliangtai, which is called “the first city in China” and “the most valuable archaeological excavation in the 20th century”; There are 10000 mu Longhu Lake with “inland wonders” and “wonderful flowers in the Central Plains”. A mausoleum, a lake and an ancient city complement each other, forming an 11 square kilometer Huaiyang Longhu scenic spot.

Huaiyang was called wanqiu, Chenzhou and Chenzhou in ancient times. It has a long history and long cultural origin. It is the birthplace of Fuxi Culture, farming culture, Bagua and dragon totem.

on the 1400 square kilometers of Huaiyang, it carries 6500 years of prehistoric civilization, 3000 years of written history and 4500 years of urban construction history. According to the textual research of China’s famous geologists, the ancient land of Huaiyang appeared 570 million years ago when most of China’s territory was ocean. More than 6500 years ago, Fuxi, the founder of Chinese humanities, established his capital here. He named

as his surname, married, netted, raised sacrifices, promoted cooking, painted eight diagrams, made gange and decorated martial arts, which initiated the Chinese civilization, realized the first great integration of the Chinese nation and created the totem of the dragon. The Shennong surname was renamed Chen after the Fuxi surname of Taihao. Shennong tasted all kinds of grass, cultivated all kinds of grain, taught the people to harvest and lead their ancestors into the farming society. King Wu of Zhou granted GUI man, the descendant of Emperor Shun, to Chen and married his daughter Daji. GUI man built the state of Chen and the city of Chen. GUI man, the Duke of Chen, took the state as his surname. GUI man, the ancestor of the surname Chen, was also the common ancestor of the surnames Hu, Tian, Yao, sun and yuan. “The surname Chen is all over the world, and Huaiyang is my hometown”.

during the Warring States period, King Qingxiang of Chu moved his capital to Chencheng, which was historically known as Ying Chen, so Huaiyang was also known as “the old city of Chen and Chu”. In the Qin Dynasty, Chen county was initially established here, followed by Chen county. In 196 BC, Chen was renamed Huaiyang in the north of huaishui. In the long history of more than 6000 years, Huaiyang has established its capital for five times and granted the state four times. The emperor is the emperor, the emperor is the king, the enfeoffment is the state, the control is the county, the north and South are under jurisdiction, and the state and county are both located. It has always been the political, economic and cultural center of Eastern Henan. It was not until 1953, after the founding of the people’s Republic of China, that the State Council withdrew the Huaiyang special zone and changed it into a county government. Look at the history of Xi’an for a thousand years. Look at the history of Beijing for a thousand years.

Huaiyang is rich in cultural heritage and cultural anecdotes abound. For four years after Chen gave lectures, “Chen Cai zhie” is still a string song and has become a masterpiece through the ages. Cao Zhi, the “eight fighting talents”, was granted the title of king of Huaiyang and served as the oracle of Chenzhou. He had the romance of boating in Longhu Lake with his brother Dongpo. The legend of Duke Bao’s coming to Chenzhou is well known to women and children. Huaiyang cultural relics are scattered everywhere, with 326 historical sites, including 2 national cultural relics protection units. Fuxi Culture, farming culture, Confucius culture and Baogong culture constitute the main context of Huaiyang culture, making Huaiyang a holy land for Chinese descendants at home and abroad to seek roots, pay homage to their ancestors and travel and sightseeing. Every year from February 2 to March 3, Huaiyang ancestral temple attracts millions of tourists because of its long history and great influence. Huaiyang is a tourism County for seeking roots and ancestors determined by the National Tourism Administration and a tourist route for Confucius to travel around the world. It is also one of the eight key tourism development counties in Henan Province. In May 2004, Huaiyang ancestral temple was listed in the second batch of pilot projects of “Chinese national and folk culture protection project” by the Ministry of culture and the Ministry of finance. In June this year, Taihao Fuxi memorial ceremony was included in the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage list.
