On September 16, an open day was held at the Wanshou Temple repair site in Haidian District, Beijing, which enjoys the reputation of "The Little Palace in Beijing". The public not only walked into ancient buildings to appreciate cultural relics, but also personally "repaired" cultural relics and learned about traditional ancient building repair techniques Enhance the awareness of cultural relics protection and promote cultural relics to "live".

  This open day event is divided into three parts: exhibition and explanation, on-site observation and actual experience.

Among them, the display and explanation will focus on the phased results of the Wanshou Temple renovation.

The content of the on-site observation was the process of "nail hemp" and other technological operations involved in the repair of Wanshou Temple East Road.

For example, nailed hemp is mainly used in the construction of ancient building walls, that is, the hemp is staggered and nailed into the cracks of the wall tiles in a plum blossom shape, and the hemp is divided into circles and mixed with ash during the plastering process. In order to improve the toughness and connection performance of the plaster layer, prevent the wall ash from falling off and hollow, and play the role of fixing the wall.

  It is reported that Wanshou Temple is a well-preserved imperial temple of the Ming and Qing Dynasties on the Beijing section of the Grand Canal Cultural Belt, and has become a veritable "key node" in the construction of the Grand Canal Cultural Belt.

The overall progress of the renovation project is smooth, which not only restores the historical appearance of Wanshou Temple to the royal temple, but also expands the exhibition area of ​​the Beijing Art Museum.

With the completion of the renovation project and the reopening of the museum, the Wanshou Temple will be integrated into the landscape of the lower reaches of the Nanchang River, and a concentrated display belt of the ancient capital culture of the Grand Canal echoed by the waterfront will be constructed to reproduce the historical features of the "Water Royal Road" during the Qianlong period.
