Reviews about Zhangye Buddhist Temple

Reviewed on May 26, 2020

強烈推薦!大佛寺曾是西夏國寺,是西夏皇帝為他的母親所建。成人門票40,學生半價。整個建築沿中軸線高度對稱,散發著皇家寺廟的恢弘氣度。寺因殿內有木胎泥塑大卧佛像而得名。大佛規模巨大,一根中指就能平躺一人,耳朵上能容八人並排而坐,可見塑像何等的龐大。大佛的傳神之處在於站在不同角度,大佛眼睛的狀態是不一樣的,站在臉正前方是睜,在腳跟看是閉,從頭走到腳可以看到佛眼閉上的動態變化。佛像是空心的,內有五層高,人可以走進去,各層之間有樓梯,過去佛像里放滿了佛經和各朝各代供奉的寶物。卧佛身邊站着的是天目兩大護法,他們身體微微前傾,表達了對佛祖的尊敬。展覽館里有佛像按比例縮小製作過程展出。這個景點強烈建議請導遊講解,會極大的優化参觀感受。要注意的地方是導遊中午一點半開始午休后就請不到了,盡量在這個時間之前趕到。另外,晚上大佛寺門口廣場上可以看到大佛寺的夜景,莊嚴宏偉,光輝燦爛,如果住得近建議來看一看。

The Great Buddha Temple is named for a 34.5-meter Buddha's Nirvana image of Sakyamuni. Located in the southwest corner of Zhangye City, Gansu Province, it is an important group of historical sites on the Silk Road. It is also a landmark building of Jinzhangye, a famous historical and cultural city. Founded in the first year of Yongan, Xixia (1098), formerly known as the Kaye Tathagata Temple, the Ming Yongle Nine-Year (1411) Named Baojue Temple, and the Qing Kangxi Seventeen-Year (1678) Named Hongren Temple, the Great Buddha Temple, also known as Sleeping Buddha Temple, because of the huge statue of lying Buddha in the temple. The Great Buddha Temple now only has such buildings as the Great Buddha Hall, the Tibetan Sutra Pavilion and the Earth Pagoda on the central axis. The Great Buddha Hall is nine rooms (48.3 meters) wide, seven rooms (24.5 meters) deep, 20.2 meters high, two floors, and the top of the double eaves Xie Mountain. There are 31 painted clay sculptures in the hall, which are relics of Xixia Dynasty. The reclining Buddha is 34.5 meters long and is the largest indoor reclining Buddha statue in China. There are ten statues of disciples behind the Buddha, beside which there are statues of Youboyi, Youbosai and 18 Arhats. Tibetan Jingge is 21.3 meters wide and 10.5 meters deep, with a single eave and a hilltop. The earth pagoda, formerly known as the Mituo Thousand Buddha Pagoda, is a brick-and-clay Mizong covered pot Pagoda with a height of 33.37 meters. The Temple houses the largest indoor reclining Buddha in China, the Nirvana image of Buddha Sakyamuni. He sleeps peacefully on the Buddhist altar 1.2 meters high in the middle of the hall. The Buddha is 34.5 meters in length, 7.5 meters in shoulder width, 4 meters in ears and 5.2 meters in foot length. One of the middle fingers of the Buddha can lie down on his back, and eight people can sit side by side on his ears. This shows how huge the statue is.
