"Riding on the 315 National Road, I was not affected by the rain at all. On this beautiful plateau road, I came across an ancient temple with a history of more than 700 years. This is the Dulan Temple, which is famous in the Mongolian region of Qinghai. The history of Dulan Temple began in the first year of the Yuan Shizu. During the Ming Dynasty, the third Dalai Lama approved the construction of a quiet room, which was the prototype of Dulan Temple. By the time of the Qing Dynasty, the Gelug Sect gained power, and Dulan Temple was officially built on the basis of the quiet room during the Shunzhi period. The understanding of Tibetan Buddhism started with the moving poems of the Living Buddha Cangyang Gyatso. As a person without faith, he has a pious face every time he shakes the prayer wheel. "That year, I shook all the sutra pipes, not for superfluousness, just to touch your fingertips." Whenever I see the prayer wheel, I think of the living Buddha poet. If he were not a living Buddha, he would have lived an ordinary but happy life. Like many traditional Tibetan Buddhist monasteries, Dulan Temple has many prayer wheels inside and outside the temple. The first time I saw the prayer wheels was in Tagong Temple in western Sichuan many years ago. At that time, I shook all the prayer wheels with my friends enthusiastically. When I shook the last prayer wheel, my heart seemed to let go of a piece. The stone is like completing a sacred ceremony. Dulan Temple is very big, and the temple was undergoing renovation when we went. Wandering in the temple, watching a monk disappear into an empty house, I also hurriedly followed in, to a place called the burning room, which was lit with many butter lamps. In Tibetan Buddhism, there is a festival commemorating Master Tsongkhapa called the Lantern Festival, which is held in winter according to the Tibetan calendar. In 2014, I happened to encounter the Lantern Festival in Anjue Temple, Kangding. It was a very grand festival. The small Anjue Temple needed dozens of armed police to maintain order on the scene. I stayed quietly in the burning room for a while, and when I went out, I happened to meet an old grandfather holding a rosary shaking the prayer wheel. The believers of Tibetan Buddhism are very pious. The meticulousness of shaking the prayer wheel, and the prostrate pilgrimage step by step, can easily impress me who has no faith. Dulan Temple has experienced ups and downs since its establishment. At its most glorious time, the temple had more than 1,000 monks, more than 300 rooms, and a 36-pillar Buddhist temple. It was the most brilliant among the 30 Buddhist temples in the Qaidam area. one of. The living Buddha stupa in Dulan Temple is very conspicuous. Many believers who come to Dulan Temple will walk around the stupa. Today's Dulan Temple is much smaller than it was at its most glorious time, but there are still nearly 50 monks and nearly 100 monks' houses. Master Tsongkhapa is the founder of the Gelug Sect (Yellow Sect) of Tibetan Buddhism, and the Gelug Sect has been widely spread in recent centuries due to the favor of the Qing rulers. Dulan Temple belongs to the Gelug Sect. In the highest place of Dulan Monastery, there is a Tsongkhapa Hall. The main hall of Tsongkhapa is a courtyard-style monk. When I went there, it was raining and all the monks were closed, and no tourists were seen. It seemed a little deserted. The Dulan Temple today is not as prosperous as it was in its history, but it is still full of incense. Walking into the red courtyard gate, I just met many monks passing by. Out of respect for religion, I did not photograph their front. I visited Dulan Temple all the time, and the light rain continued to fall. When I was about to leave, a monk in red gauze appeared at the corner of the temple's Buddhist room. This is the last photo in Dulan Temple. Today Dulan Temple is not as prosperous as it was when it was at its most prosperous, but the shadow of its once glory can be seen everywhere. Dulan Temple feels like an independent Buddhist temple. Although it is next to the 315 National Road, it is rarely disturbed by tourists. There are many good places in Qinghai, but Haixi Prefecture is an undeveloped virgin land. In addition to the world-famous land of the sky-Chaka Salt Lake, Haixi Prefecture actually has many good places. These places have pristine and beautiful scenery, but almost no foreign tourists set foot. It is highly recommended to drive Haixi State. If you pass 315 National Highway, remember to stop at Dulan Temple." is part of Group Limited, one of the world's leading providers of travel services.
