Baoxiang Temple is in the middle of the three scenic spots in Shibaoshan, and is included in the Shibaoshan ticket. We walked up the stone steps. There were many monkeys frolicking along the way, and calmly took over the food passed by tourists. It was very interesting. Baoxiang Temple, also known as Yunnan Xuankong Temple, was built against a cliff, which is quite spectacular and the Buddha statues are lifelike. Due to time reasons, I was not able to reach the highest point, which is a little regrettable.
The Baoxiang Temple was built in the Yuan Dynasty. Although it is not as famous as the Hanging Temple in Datong, it is a hanging temple built under a cliff, but it was built on a cliff and is extremely dangerous. It is not only a provincial key cultural relic protection unit in Yunnan, but also a domestic one. A temple where Buddhism and Taoism merge.
It has long been heard that there are a large number of macaques in Shibaoshan, especially Baoxiang Temple. At the gate of Baoxiang Temple, there have been dozens of macaques strolling on the waterwheel, stone lions, and stone bridges, playing zip lines. Visitors put food from time to time. Along the road, there are macaques jumping around. The macaques are also gentle, not like the splashing monkeys of Mount Emei.
When you reach the gate of Baoxiang Temple, you can see Buddha statues among the cliffs, and a temple on each side, with a small stream cascading down on the left.
There is a small archway with a book hanging in the air. There are steps leading to the cliff, which can be condescending.
Although Baoxiang Temple is not like Shanxi Xuankong Temple supported by wooden pillars, it also has its own characteristics. One is that there are many macaques, and the other is that temple buildings are built in the cliffs.
The Baoxiang Temple was built in the Yuan Dynasty. It is located on a towering and steep rock cliff. It is built on the mountain. The lower floor is the main hall, and the second floor is the temple. The stone is lifted and the beam is lifted. It is called the "hanging temple in Yunnan". Continue walking up the mountain from Baoxiang Temple, and you will arrive at the slightly defeated Jinding Temple in about half an hour.
Baoxiang Temple is in the middle of the sightseeing bus. The temple is built on the hillside and is not small in scale. At Azhali Tantric Temple, the Buddha statues in the temples are different from those of Southern Buddhism. On the cliff, there is a sitting golden Maitreya and a colorful standing statue of Sakyamuni, which is a bit strange. Of course, the most special one is the macaques in the Mansi Temple. In the Buddhist niches, on the top of the Buddha, on the trees, guardrails and roads along the way, it will scare you carelessly, and you are not afraid of people. It is a very interesting experience.
