Lotus Pond Temple, also known as Lotus Pond and Ancient Lotus Temple. Located at the mouth of Lingtang Bay on the bank of Wubao Lake. After Chen Fei died of illness, Xiaozong wanted to set up a monk and build a monastery here in memory of her, and chant the sutras for Chen Fei. Later, the monks were ordered to dig a pond to plant lotus on the east side of the temple, which was called the Lotus Temple. After more than 40 years of construction, the temple hall corridors, Baoge Cenlou and Qintang painting boats are all available, and it becomes one of the famous Buddhist resorts in the south of the Yangtze River. In the eight hundred years of vicissitudes of life, the Lotus Pond Monastery has been repeatedly repaired. After 1996, it has been continuously repaired and regained its brilliance, forming a complete ancient lotus scenic spot with the Chen Fei Water Tomb, Wenchang Pavilion and Ten Eyes Long Bridge.
The temple in Jinxi Ancient Town is just beside the ancient lotus bridge. When I went there for the first time, because my eyes were focused on the bridge, I completely missed this quiet temple. The backyard is quite impressive, leading to the Concubine Chen's water tomb, with a wide perspective, avoiding noise and noise. At the same time, you can also see the ancient lotus bridge up close. In your free time, it must be a good experience to copy a scripture in the temple!
In the red dust of the prosperous city of Jinxi Ancient Town, there is a cool and pure land standing in it-Jinxi Lianchi Buddhist Temple! The temple was built by Xiaozong in Song Jiatai to commemorate the beloved concubine Chen's death, and sent monks to keep incense. The temple was built next to the Wubao Lake. Not far from the lake is the Chen Fei Shui Tomb.
The Lotus Pond Temple is located in the center of Jinxi Ancient Town. Tourists who come to visit the ancient town will go in and take a look. However, because they have been walking for an hour, they have lost interest in such scenic spots and took a few pictures outside.
The environment is very quiet. It is a place of leisure and peace.
Lotus Pond Temple is the most beautiful place in Jinxi Ancient Town, and it is free. The field of vision is wide, the bridge is flying, and the lotus leaf is Tian Tian. The breeze comes slowly, and you can smell the faint lotus fragrance. The temple is newly built, with wooden structure, imitating Song style.
