Lingyin Temple & Fei Lai Feng Scenic Park Hangzhou
Next on the list is this scenic park - I say this because I saw everything in the park except the Lingyin Temple.. haha... But don't fret, there are two other temples and lots more to see...
Getting There - This scenic spot is located at 1 Fayun Lane, Lingyin Road, Hangzhou.. can't be missed. I took a didi (as usual), but there is also a bus terminal out front (I think I spied a bus line Y2...)
Attractions - This park has loads of things to see.. stone carvings of budha legends, stone caves (amazing way to cool off during the summer) with more statues connected to beautiful streams, all envelopes in an ancient forest with big trees.. the sight is quite delightful. Admission into the park cost 45rmb - take a passport or the picture of the information page with you.
The Lingyin Temple is inside the park, so I don't think it's possible to go to the Temple without paying for the park - there could be a seperate admission cost for the Temple but sadly, didn't get the chance to find out.. we trail the park first and checkout the temple on the way out..
We walked along the streams and park, and other temples way ahead... nice hike until the drizzle started. I was prepared with my umbrella but the light drizzle turned into a frantic downpour.. my umbrella was no match for it.. the trail turned slopy with about 20 floors in stairs which did interesting things to the hamstrings. I was completely drenched at the peak .. but still proceeded back out and to the Lingyin temple. My travel code showed I was in Shanghai 2 weeks back and the guards kept enquiring in chinese, passport and visa details, filling forms - drenched me wasn't in the mood for this, so I left.
Food & Restaurants - Small shops within the scenic park. large variety of restaurants are at the entrance, just before the ticketing office - so easy bite before or after the site.
I'm referring to this place as the biggest of the all Buddha temple in China, because it is so huge in area. This 12 km hike has started for us by 10🕙 in the morning. We were curious to see the Feilai peak, but it was temporarily closed for some maintenance. And so, we went on to other hiking 🥾 path like the Shili langdang path that took us to Five Clouds Hill where you can see some tea 🍵 plantations (although in small amount) below the pagoda like structure. It is so good fragrance, that re-energized us to continue until Hupao mountain; translation would be Tiger spring mountain. There are places to relax and eat here. I would say this as a moderate hike, with quite less difficulty. Should be doable to anyone💪. #hiking
The Lingyin Temple next to the West Lake is one of the most famous temples in Hangzhou, attracting countless tourists. If you have been to Lingyin Temple, you will know that before entering the temple, you must go through a cave. This is Feilai Peak.
Feilai Peak is a small hill. It is not outstanding in the mountains around the West Lake. It is only 168 meters above sea level. Tickets are more expensive than Lingyin Temple. There are more than 300 statues preserved in the area, which is very rare in the Jiangnan area.
According to previous records, Feilaifeng used to have 72 holes, but due to the age, most of them have disappeared. The only remaining holes are concentrated on the southeast side of the Feilai Peak.
The light in the cave is dim, and it is necessary to rely on the light to see the Buddha image. The oldest of these Buddha statues was the Five Dynasties, with a history of more than a thousand years. It is a rare gem of ancient grotto art in Jiangnan, which is comparable to the Chongqing Dazu Rock Carvings.
Su Dongpo liked to fly to the peak during his stay in Hangzhou. He once wrote the poem "There is a place where you can see all the mountains and rivers." In the Song Dynasty, Lingyin Temple must have not many tourists, and it is very quiet in the mountains, and the Zen is far-reaching.
Fei Laifeng's existing stone carvings include the Western Three Statues (Five Generations), the Lushen Buddha Relief (North Song Dynasty), the Budai Monk (South Song Dynasty), the Vajrapani Bodhisattva, the Multi-Heavenly King, and the Male Guanyin (both Yuan Dynasty) ), are rare art treasures.
