Kangding Anjue Temple is a famous Huangjiao temple. It was built during the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty at the end of the 18th century. It has a history of more than 360 years.
Because the splendid Anjue Temple is located in Kangding City, the flow of people is like weaving, and the incense has always been strong. Every day from the early morning, there are devout believers praying and worshiping in front of the censer with fresh pine branches and various worship supplies.
The annual Lantern Festival is also held here to commemorate the day when Master Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Yellow Sect of Tibetan Buddhism, passed away and became a Buddha. There will be grand ceremonies and memorial services.
The head of the Shangqiao Bridge in Kangding City is 2500 meters above sea level. There is a Tibetan Buddhist temple, Anjue Temple (formerly called Anque Temple) next to the Jiangjun Bridge. The temple was built in 1652 and belongs to the Gelug sect of Tibetan Buddhism.
The roof of the temple is still golden. There are small Buddha statues and butter lamps, Buddha statues and photos and portraits against the wall. This large temple, just listen to the constant sound of loudspeakers and snails from the temple, resounding over the urban area of Kangding...
Tibetan Buddhism has a strong atmosphere, especially the annual Lantern Festival, which is very lively and unique!
Kangding City, with the rapid development of the city, has become the leading tourism metropolis in Western Sichuan. Just in time for the 70th anniversary celebration of the establishment, the streets were filled with colorful flags and loud singing. The gathering of people from all directions was bustling and crowded. The whole city is permeated with a warm festive atmosphere. As a result, we could not find a hotel to stay in when we came to West Sichuan to worship Buddha. Reluctantly, I chose the small temple in the center of the city ~ Anjue Temple as the place to check in for the Buddha's pilgrimage. I hurriedly passed by. Anjue Temple is located in the center of Kangding City, surrounded by a series of modern buildings such as the hotel and shopping malls opposite to the city. The door face on the sloping road looked very narrow. There are only three temples in the temple. According to records, it was built in 1652 and completed two years later. It was destroyed in the 1960s and rebuilt in the 1980s. Because Anjue Temple is located in the city center, it provides Buddhist chanting for local believers. The convenience of praying for the lamp. On the back wall of the temple, there is a narrow passage through the meridian, and local believers circle the temple in an endless stream, forming a clean atmosphere that is completely different from the bustling city. When you walk into the temple and worship the Buddha with lanterns, you can feel the pure land of the Buddha in the busy city, and the empty heart in the impetuous world of Anjue Temple. Business hours: 9 am to 20 pm, the transit passage behind the temple is open 24 hours. Detailed address: Guangming Road, Kangding County, Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. Per capita consumption: free.
Anjue Temple is in the center of Kangding, next to the Jiangjun Bridge. Temples are average, but temples in Tibetan areas are similar. The Yuangen Festival is very lively. The outside of the temple is still magnificent. This is the intersection of Tibetan and Chinese culture. You can have a good taste!
Anjue Temple was a pleasant surprise in the city of Kangding. We visited it early in the morning, there were no tourists, the temple was clan and nice and a lonely monk was chanting his morning mantra...
