Ancient city of SUBASHI
SUBASHI ancient city, also known as zhaohuli temple, is located in beishanlongkou on the outskirts of Kuqa, Xinjiang. In front of the ancient city, there are three mountains facing each other, and the terrain is dangerous. And there are mountain springs gushing out of Longkou and flowing into the winding Kuqa River.
In ancient times, SUBASHI was a famous daughter country. The ancient city of SUBASHI is built near the mountain, covering an area of about 5000 square meters. Despite the vicissitudes, the old castle's walls, piers, beacon towers and liaowangkong are still indistinguishable. On the top of the castle, the view is wide, with Longkou fountain and cascading mountains. It's not hard to imagine the grandeur of the daughter country.
It is said that because of the water quality in the daughter country, there were only women but no men in the past dynasties. The local girls never marry outside, and the foreign boys can only marry them if they have joined the daughter country and become their son-in-law. But they also have girls after marriage, which is true for generations. The daughter state belongs to the matriarchal society. The king, civil and military officials and even the captain of the guard are all women in power. The duties of the court servant, production labor, guarding the castle, etc. are all the duties of the husband's son-in-law (man).
The nation of daughters was once famous. At that time, the nomadic tribes on the mountain coveted this geomantic treasure land and invaded it many times. Holding sabers and riding horses, they surrounded the castle and tried to force the king to surrender. However, the whole nation of the daughter country, united as one, vowed to defend the city to the death. All the officers and men went up to the castle and stuck to the territory with daggers, bows and arrows, long grass and stones. In addition, the city has sufficient food, convenient drinking water and guaranteed logistic supply. In particular, the female guard captains with feathers on their heads, shawls on their shoulders, and war robes went to inspect the city day and night, which greatly boosted the morale of the troops. When the invaders were unable to attack for a long time, the women's guard captain led all the soldiers to rush out of the castle all night and bravely throw out the long grass in their hands, which was like ten thousand arrows firing at the same time, which made the enemy soldiers turn over, and finally they had to flee in confusion.
History is merciless, once the dominant daughter country, but later disappeared. It is said that the collapse of the daughter's country was not caused by the invasion of foreign enemies, but by the flash flood caused by an earthquake. Overnight, the torrential flood was about to engulf the castle, and the daughter's country would die out.
Nowadays, the ruins of the ancient city of SUBASHI have become a tourist attraction. People at home and abroad, especially archaeologists, often travel thousands of miles to visit the site. In the autumn of 1998, I went back to Xinjiang to visit my relatives and visited the ancient city. On that day, I met many Japanese tourists. Despite the language barrier, both sides still waved to show their friendship. On the castle, the Japanese guests also took a picture for us with the instant camera. It was a group photo of me and army staff officer Amati Maji. When I visited the old place again, I felt a lot of emotion, so I wrote a sentimental poem to commemorate it.
The towering castle is situated in three mountains, and the golden gate and iron horse town are majestic.
Where is the kingdom of daughters today? The reputation of feathered silver is passed down.
