Kaiyuan Temple
More than 1,000 years ago, under the command of Tang Xuanzong, who advocated Buddhism, there were ten grand treasures in the country's top ten counties, called Kaiyuan Temple. After the historical storms, there are only four of the top ten famous temples in the past, one of which is in Chaozhou, Guangdong.
Because the dynasties have maintained the Chaozhou Kaiyuan Temple, the temple has the architectural style of the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties in the Tang Dynasty.
Chaozhou Kaiyuan Temple originally covers an area of about 100 mu. Although the existing area is greatly reduced, it is still one of the largest Buddhist temples in eastern Guangdong, and has a high reputation in Fujian and Guangdong and Southeast Asia.
In the Kaiyuan Temple in Chaozhou, if you look at it, you will find that there are many delicate decorations on the roof of each hall. These decorations are called inlaid porcelain. The contents of the inlaid porcelain are flowers, phoenixes, peacocks, lions and real dragons. There are also some Chinese mythological legends.
Chaozhou inlaid porcelain is bold, rich in content and colorful, and is a building craft with the same name as Chaozhou woodcarving and Huizhou woodcarving.
Chaozhou inlaid porcelain is also known as Chaozhou wood carving and Chaozhou stone carving. The biggest advantage of
inlay is that it is not easy to change color after weathering, and it is easier to retain than the same exquisite wood carving process.
Chaozhou inlaid porcelain is mainly embossed, showing a layered effect. Because of its unique style and no such technology, temples in the Guangfu area and Southeast Asia often come to Chaozhou to hire professional masters to decorate.
