The Sanskrit sounds around the beams, the whirling sutra pipes, the curling incense, the surging crowds, the prayers with closed eyes, the prayer flags fluttering in the wind, between half dreams and half awake, is the long-lost tranquility, the transcendence in the tranquility, I am meditating Temple, looking for the lost direction...
On the first day of Zhuoni, I set off at 9 o'clock in the morning and drove to Chanding Temple. It was a 10-minute drive from Zhuoni County. Located on a platform about half a kilometer northwest of Zhuoni County, in 1295, the leader of the Sakya Sect of Tibet, Ba Si Ba, personally selected the site, laid the foundation, named and presided over the construction of the oldest Tibetan Buddhist temple in the Anduo Tibetan area. It is a pity The original buildings and numerous Tibetan scriptures and cultural relics were destroyed during the "Cultural Revolution." The existing buildings were successively rebuilt after the 1980s. The three-character brick sculpture "Chan Ding Temple" on the top of the temple gate was in front of the Chinese Buddhist Association. The original picture of Mr. Zhao Puchu, the chairman and master of calligraphy.
Chanding Temple is relatively unpopular, and there are not many tourists. In front of the temple, you can see the mountains and rivers. On the back, the Yaer Mountain, Guya Mountain, and Maqin Mountain are layered and undulating, which complements the style of Zen Ding Temple. As long as the weather is good, under the style of Zen Ding Temple, in Zhuoni Under the warm sun, it's easy to shoot big travel movies. Tickets cost 5 yuan. Even in July and August, the peak season for tourism in Gannan, it is still quiet and solemn. Instead of going to a crowded attraction, it is better to feel the inner peace and find a long-lost touch in a strange place.
Everyone in the Zen Ding Temple is so pious. When the sun rises, they turn every sutra, hold a string of beads, and chant proverbs; they solemnly bow their heads in three steps, kowtow in five steps, even if the road Wearing clothes, staining the face... The shock they brought to us makes the corners of our eyes sore. After seeing it once, we may end our life and never forget it again.
Chanding Temple is just beside Zhuoni County, it is worth a visit when passing by. It has a long history, four hundred years earlier than Labrang Monastery in Xiahe. There are few tourists and the environment is quiet. However, it is obvious that it was renovated in recent years, the building is not heavy enough, and the details of the antique building are not paid enough.
Chanding Temple is located in Zhuoni County, and it is said that the history is earlier than Labrang Monastery. The architecture of the Zen Ding Temple is a Tibetan-Chinese style combined wall, and the entire building complex is lined with flowers and trees, and is magnificent. The main buildings include the Great Scripture Hall, the Academy of Philosophy, the Academy of Astronomy, the School of Esoteric Buddhism, and the Monk and Official Yamen of the School of Confucian Classics.
It's a nice place to stroll around, a very quiet temple, and a comfortable turn.
After a day trip to Gannan Zhuoni Zen Ding Temple. solemn and solemn. One by one. The temple has a history of more than 700 years. After going through various sects, it is returned to the Gelug Sect. It is an important temple in Gannan. There are many cultural relics in the temple.
