What people are saying:

In traditional Chinese Buddhist culture, Buddhist temples and temples are often built far away from mountains and rivers, far away from the noise of the world, and appear pure and remote. And every time the laymen worship the Buddha, they have a more ritual sense and can express their respect and devotion to the Buddha. In Chengdu, a city with a unique temperament, there is a unique bright color in her profound cultural heritage, which originates from the collision of simplicity and modernity, tradition and fashion. Daci Temple and Taikoo Li behind it seem to be highlighting the city's temperament-both dynamic and static, and compatible. Local and international, persistence and compromise are only separated by a wall. On an autumn day, Chengdu people are in Daci Temple, watching the ginkgo bordered with Phnom Penh, drinking traditional gaiwan tea, and basking in the bright sunshine. This is the happiest slow life in Chengdu.
