On the shore of Lugu Lake, Zami Temple in Yongning City is really a very beautiful Tibetan Buddhist monastery. It belongs to the Gelug Sect of Huangjiao Temple. Standing on the top of the monastery, you can overlook the entire Yongning City and the Goddess Peak and Lion Peak in the distance. The murals and wood carvings and the five-color mandala inside the temple are very beautiful and it is worth seeing. This is a pure temple. The lamas don’t ask for money for incense and candles, and they donate on their own.
The ancient building of Zami Temple is a key protection unit in Yunnan. The gloomy hall, flashing butter lamps, golden words, and exquisite murals are all mysterious and sacred
Zami Temple is a temple without commercial pollution. It is beautiful, with bright colors and exquisiteness, and few tourists. A Tibetan Buddhist temple that you must pass through to walk the marriage bridge, you can drop by.
Zhamei Temple is located at the foot of Gur Mountain in the northwest of Cobbler Street in Yongning Township. It is now a key cultural relic protection unit in Yunnan Province. Founded by the Living Buddha of the Tibetan Karmapa in the Ming Dynasty, it was originally a Kagyu monastery. Zami Temple is the largest Tibetan Buddhist (commonly known as Lamaism) monastery in the Mosuo and Pumi areas of Yunnan. The main building of the temple, the main hall and the left and right side halls, are all three-story pavilions, with civil structures, thick yellow tiles on the walls, and gilded copper roofs, which are magnificent and magnificent. In the side hall to the west, there is a gilded seated Maitreya Buddha about 12 meters high, with five Buddha crowns on his head, and a wishful orb in his hand, which is a typical Tibetan clay sculpture style. There are 6 murals painted on the four walls of the side hall. They are the contents of Buddhist scriptures. They have fine lines, bright colors and vivid shapes. They are the same as the murals in the Tibetan area of Sichuan, and have not been affected by the Buddhist and Taoist murals. The main hall is surrounded by monks' houses, forming a complex of buildings centered on the main hall. There were more than 700 original monks, all of Mosuo and Pumi.
Zhamei Temple was destroyed during the Cultural Revolution and has been restored as it was. It is a key cultural relics protection unit in Yunnan Province. The gloomy hall, flashing butter lamps, golden prayer wheels, exquisite religious murals and gorgeous and solemn colored carvings in Zami Temple exude mystery and sacredness. Different from other temples, in addition to Buddha statues, there is also a statue of Goddess Gem inside the Zami Temple. Enough to make people calm down and worship piously. The sound of chanting is very contagious.
On the third day of the trip to Lugu Lake, I went to see Zami Temple. Because of the previous earthquake, Zami Temple was under construction. Only a few small temples can be seen. The donkey head also took us to light butter lamps to pray for the safety of our family. The monks in the temple are very friendly.
