Introduction

The Guangxiao Temple is constructed with meticulous architecture highlighted by magnificent temples that symbolize the essence of the Chinese Zen culture. The main building was built in the main hall of the Eastern Jin Dynasty and contains three giant Buddha statues that are Sakyamuni. Together the three Busshas are collectively called the "Huayan Sanshou". There are two halls within the building. The left is dedicated to the Xzang Bodhisattva and the right is dedicated to Guan Gong. In addition if you go down the side hall located on the west side of the main hall you will see where the Sakyamuni Buddha's reclining phase is enshrined. The legend that has been handed down is that when Sakyamuni was ill, he was held in this position with his right hand holding the head and his eyes closed while lying under the Salo twin trees.
