3km away from the downtown of the city of Guiyang, Qianlin park
is composed of Qianlin mountain, Hongfu Buddhist temple, Qinlin
lake, the zoo, Qilin cave, Two dams, Sanlin Bay.
park, regarded as the back yard garden of Guiyang, the park covers
an area of 426 hectares. It became a paradise for the citizens of
the city, especially for the old and kids, the old play Taiji, kards
and dance Yango sometimes, it's also a paradise for kids.
the park, I highly recommend the Buddhist temple-Hongfu Buddhist
temple. The temple was built on the 11th rein of emperor Kangxi
in 1672 by a monk called Cisong. He spent about 20 years finishing
buliding the temple. Now the temple became the largest one in the
province and the most popularlous destination for disciples.
The buildings in the temple include
the Precious Hall, the Four Heavenly King Hall, the Hall of Goddess
of Mercy, 500 Ahat Hall, Abot's Hall, the hall for storying Buddhist
sculptures, temple gate, the dormitory and kitchen for the monks
and nuns in the temple. The jade buddha on the second floor of the
Precious hall is perticularly special and precious.
to classification, the buddhism of the temple belongs to Mihiyana
Buddhism. Near the temple you can see rhesus monkeys play by themselves
or try to beg candies from tourists which will make you a memorable
journey to the temple.
