Strongly recommended! The Great Buddha Temple was once the State Temple of Xixia, built by the Emperor of Xixia for his mother. Adult tickets are 40 and students are half-price. The whole building is highly symmetrical along the central axis, displaying the magnificence of the Royal temple. The temple is named for its wooden tire clay statue of a large Buddha lying in bed. The size of the Buddha is huge. One middle finger can lie flat on one person. Eight people can sit side by side on the ears. This shows how large the statue is. The transmission of the Buddha lies in the fact that from different angles, the state of the Buddha's eyes is different. Standing in front of the face, the Buddha's eyes are open, the Buddha's heels are closed, and the dynamic changes of the Buddha's eyes can be seen from head to foot. The Buddha statue is hollow with five stories high inside. People can walk in. There are stairs between the stories. In the past, the Buddha statue was filled with Buddhist sutras and treasures worshipped by different dynasties. Standing beside the sleeping Buddha are the two protective methods of the heavenly eyes. They lean forward slightly, expressing their respect for the Buddha. In the exhibition hall, Buddha statues are exhibited in a scale-down process. This scenic spot strongly suggests inviting a tour guide to explain, which will greatly optimize the experience of the visit. Attention should be paid to the fact that the tour guide can't be invited after lunch break starts at 1:30 noon. Try to arrive before this time. In addition, in the evening, you can see the night scene of the Grand Buddha Temple on the square at the entrance of the Grand Buddha Temple. It is magnificent and brilliant. If you live near it, you can take a look at it.
