It has gone down in Chinese history as an epoch-making event, which ended the autocratic monarchy that had reigned in China for more than 2,000 years and established a democratic republic in the country.

  • Lord Guan

    During the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Guan Yu was honored the title of "Great Lord of Harmonious Heaven," and memorials enshrining his image, usually by the name of Temple of Lord Guan, sprung up. According to historical records, the earliest temple of Guan Yu was Yuquan Temple, erected in the 6th century in Dangyang, Hubei Province, which is considered the apparition site of Lord Guan. Extensive construction of such temples began in the mid Northern Song (960-1127), and throughout the following Southern Song, Jin, Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties, Guan Yu temples spread all across the country to the point that it was said that "Every county has a Confucius temple and every village, a Guan Yu temple." The immigration wave during the Qing period (1644-1911) even spread Guan Yu worship beyond the Chinese territory; hence the saying, "Where there are Chinese, there are temples of Guan Yu." In the late Ming period, Guan Yu worship was designated as a national sacrificial rite. Although most of the memorials of Guan Yu are small, the Lord Guan's tomb in Dangyang, Hubei Province, Lord Guan's forest in Luoyang, Henan Province, and Lord Guan's temple in Xiezhou, Shanxi Province, were constructed in a magnificent manner equivalent to the standards of the temple, cemetery, and family mansion of Confucius in Qufu, Shandong Province.

    China National Philatelic Corporation will issue two FDCs, a souvenir sheet cover and a commemorative cancellation respectively.
