Yuantong Temple is one of the oldest ancient temples in Kunming. The incense is prosperous and pilgrims are in constant flow. In addition to praying for blessings, there is a place with a winding path that is often overlooked. On the right side of the main hall, there are many ancient and modern rock carvings: such as: Yunnan governor Wang Jiwen's cursive script Qijue, etc., because of the path up the mountain It has been closed and there are not many other stone inscriptions. Although the characters are worn out, they are still readable. According to legend, the two holes in the "Tide Sound Valley" have not been marked for a long time, and there is a closed cave under the steps that makes people think about it for no reason...
Yuantong Temple is magnificent and its verdant trees have always been one of Kunming's eight scenic spots, just like a beautiful garden in the south of the Yangtze River. It seeks tranquility in the chaos, sees the big from the small, and uses the scenery of Luofeng Mountain to form a unique group of water courtyard and Buddhist temples.
A Japanese monk wandered to Luofeng Mountain and stayed in Yuantong Temple for a long time, leaving a "Shufeng Embracing Green Poem" to praise Yuantong Temple. The color of the clouds embraces the head of the Buddha. The birds on the cliffs open up to the sky, and the ancient caves and dragons shed light on the earth.” You can see the beauty of Yuantong Temple.
Yuantong Mountain is next to Yuantong Temple. There are still cherry blossoms in these two days, but it can be said that the blooming period has passed, and some of the leaves have grown to affect the viewing. The more important thing is that Kunming will have strong winds in these two days, and heavy rain for a while. Hail will definitely affect the flowers.
