What people are saying:

行程的最后一站--莆田,就是为了广化寺慕名而来。到广化寺已近中午,正想找斋堂用饭,就发现山门旁正在为游客派发斋饭,食客已是络绎不绝,此处有义工帮忙打饭,吃的是青菜煮面条,小菜是油炸花生米,虽然简单但是味道不错也可果腹,实是感恩,寺庙之物来自十方,自是不能随意浪费,吃多少盛多少,吃完后自己刷碗便可离开,一边也有功德箱可以略表心意。 用完斋饭后拾阶而上,由中轴线望去十分安静祥和,第一座殿由哼哈二将把守着山门,整座寺院的格局和前两天刚去过的顺德宝林寺相似,都是依山而建,层层递进的形制。 由于这里有佛学院,不时有僧人往来,相对来说比别的寺庙要多,增添了几分生机和禅意。 随后经过放生池便来到了弥勒殿,殿前匾额书写着“兜率天宫”和“弥勒住处”,在此礼拜了弥勒尊佛和韦陀菩萨,再继续往前便是大雄宝殿,当天气温有点炎热,虽已十二月,却是夏日气象,但是来到大殿前,找个阴凉处的石阶坐下,感受阵阵凉风徐徐袭来,吹动着大殿里的幢幡,幡下铃铛发出叮铃铃的清脆声响,再看着满院的绿树随风摇曳,霎时便从燥热中清凉下来。 休息片刻后继续游览了观音阁,文殊殿,期间有条小径去到了祖师塔,一一参拜后前往“释迦文佛塔”绕塔三圈”,整个行程也画上圆满的句号了。

Additional Information

Introduction

Guanghua Temple was first built in the second year of Chen Yongding of the Southern Dynasty (558 C.E.). It was first called "Jinxian Monastery" and was later expanded into a temple. The layout is magnificent with the outer screen wall, Emperor Hall, and the Great Buddha's Hall forming the central axis running north to south. Great Buddha Hall is a high beamed palace structure. In front of the Emperor Hall are two stone buildings from the second year of the Northern Song Dynasty and one is carved with the "Ushnisha Buddhist Incantations." It is an excellent place to experience Buddhist culture.
