"It is not enough to know its depth" Fangguang Temple is quiet and deep, surrounded by eight peaks like lotus petals, Fangguang Temple is in the lotus core, like hiding in the mountains to treat people. Fangguang Temple leads to Shifang Zigai Temple with gurgling brooks and gurgling trees. The air is fresh and refreshing.
Navigating by road from outside, Fangguang Temple does not require tickets, and parking is 10 yuan. On the road, there is a terraced rice field in Shili Tea Village where you can take pictures, and there is a stream. Drive a little further ahead and you will reach Fangguang Temple. At the innermost, there are two exhibition halls going to the left. I don't know if it is the off-season or it hasn't been completed. There is no development. There are introductions and calligraphy and painting carvings. Don’t buy a bunch of incense sellers in front of the temple, which will pollute the environment. If you really want to go, the main hall of the temple will provide free incense, just take three for free.
Fangguang Temple. This is the dojo of five hundred arhats and is under repair. The five hundred arhat statues in the temple are small and exquisite. The level of craftsmanship is probably second only to the large group sculptures of Suzhou Xiyuan Jiezhulu Temple and Tiantai Guoqing Temple. During the reconstruction period, the temple was quite messy and there were no other scenic spots. The picture below was taken while continuing to climb the mountain. Looking back, a towering maple tree on the northeast corner was very beautiful.
The location of Fangguang Temple is a treasure of geomantic omen, built under the lotus peak of Hengshan Mountain. It is the so-called famous mountain monks from ancient times. Looking out from the door of the temple, the peaks in the distance are clearly visible, and the road leading to the temple is densely forested. , The stream beside the road is constantly flowing. In addition to the cedar trees, there are also maple trees. Occasionally there are some bamboo forests, which are super rich in negative ions. What I like most is the quietness here, suitable for meditation.
Under the Lotus Peak of Hengshan Mountain, Fangguang Temple’s car can be driven to the door. Surrounded by dense forests, it has the feeling of a deep mountain Tibetan temple. It is very quiet and quiet, with spring rocks, maple and cedar trees, deep forest dense bamboo, and beautiful scenery. But if it is a walking god, it is not very convenient. This is Nanyue's "one must". There is a saying that Nanyue "Don't travel to Fangguang, you don't know the depth of Nanyue"
