The Leshan Giant Buddha is a Maitreya Buddha. The Buddhist scriptures say that Maitreya will be "the world is peaceful". Therefore, people worship the Maitreya Buddha in the Tang Dynasty and built this Buddha with Maitreya Buddha.
Leshan Big Buddha's Lingyun The boardwalk is usually at least one hour before the team can enter, and the place where the queue is empty at this time, so I once suspected that it could not go down. Usually, you can only see people on the boardwalk in the picture below. It is rare to see such a scene. So in the future, if you want to avoid the mountains and seas, you can enter the scenic spot in the evening, just like me. Its better to go earlier than I went. Its better at 5:30 to the scenic spot. When we go, its 6 oclock, a little A little late. At this time, the scenic spot can only see the scenery, and it is impossible to see people.
The Leshan Giant Buddha, also known as the Lingyun Buddha, is 71 meters high and was excavated in the Tang Dynasty. After three generations of craftsmen, it was completed in 90 years. It is the largest stone statue in China. It has always been a Buddhist holy place. The incense in Lingyun Temple is very prosperous. It is a good choice to experience Buddhist culture here. In addition to going up the mountain to observe the Buddha, you can also choose to take a boat to see the Buddha statue. There are three gates in the Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Area, the North Gate (entrance), the East Gate (Exit), and the South Gate (Entrance Exit). The bus drop-off point and most visitors enter the gate is the north gate, but the exit is in the east gate and the south gate. If you need to take the bus back and do not want to visit the sights of Ma Haoya tomb, it is recommended to go out at the east gate. Because it is not convenient to go out from the South Gate. Plus, if the luggage is stored in a small shop in the North Gate, you still have to go out from the East Gate and go back to the North Gate after walking about 200 meters to the left. In summary, the route from the north gate to the east gate is the best. The walls in the scenic spot are full of ancient stone cliff statues, which are all mottled.
Located in Lingyun Mountain, Qixia Peak, the river is carved by the Maitreya Buddha statue. It is a dangerous place in the river, a solemn expression, and a Buddha's light. It has stood here for more than 1200 years.
Looking up, the height of 71 meters makes people feel awe. As a tourist business card for Leshan City, there are many tourists coming here every year.
Mountain climbing requires a lot of physical strength. There are no cable cars or battery cars in the scenic area. Climb to the top of the mountain and go down the mountain through the Lingyun plank road.
When you walk to the Buddha statue, you can touch the Buddha's foot. The Buddha statue looks different from different angles. After climbing back to the top of the mountain on the Jiuqu plank road, you can also enjoy the large and small cliff stone engraving on the way.
I have always been surprised. Sichuan's geographical soil is loose sand, and there are many landslides and mudslides every year. This Leshan Giant Buddha built a nearly 90-year-old project in the Tang Dynasty more than a thousand years ago. The 71-meter-high Buddha statue is on the bank of the Lijiang River. It has been smashed by thousands of years of wind and rain and it is a miracle! It is impossible to say that the Buddha is secretly blessed, and the folks have so many stories about the gods.
Talking about the early years of Emperor Xuanzong in the Yuan Dynasty, there was an old monk in the Lingyun Mountain near the Leshan River. He witnessed the convergence of the Lancang River, the Qingyi River and the Dadu River. The rapids and turbulence of the turbulent waters made countless ships and people died. The ruin has repeatedly occurred, and the people are suffering. Haitongs monk is compassionate, and he is willing to raise funds to build a big Buddha and the Sanjiang Confluence of the town. He wants to use the boundless power of the Buddha to reduce the water potential.
After three generations of craftsmen, it took 90 years to complete the construction of the Leshan Giant Buddha in the 19th year of Tang Dezong (AD 803).
When the craftsman built the Buddha more than a thousand years ago, he had skillfully designed a drainage system. From the hair of the Buddha to the chest and back of the collar, there are ditch drainage, moisture insulation and ventilation to avoid weathering erosion. This should be the main reason why the Buddha has been alive for thousands of years. Can not help but secretly marvel at the wisdom and imagination of ancient craftsmen.
Looking up at the Foyun Lingyun Temple, there is sunshine through the forest, sprinkled on the snails of the Buddha's mottled snails, like a Buddha's light.
Sitting on the river in front of the Buddha's knee, day and night endless.
The Leshan Giant Buddha is located on a rock wall of the Lingyun Mountain at the junction of Leshan's Min River, Qingyi River, and Dadu River in Sichuan. It is a sacred place for Buddhist and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Leshan Giant Buddha depicts a seated image of Maitreya and it is an exquisite piece of cliff-carving work from the Tang Dynasty. The colossal statue is about 70 metres high and over 1,300-years-old, making it the largest stone Buddha in the world, and by far the tallest pre-modern statue. It took an astonishing three generations of craftmen and 90 years to complete. When viewing the tall and majestic Giant Buddha, one cannot help but marvel at the wisdom of the ancients. In the absence of modern large-scale tools, they were still able to leave such a legacy.
