Jinci Park is free of tickets, Jinci Temple is to collect tickets. There is a car stop far away from Jinci Temple. Ignore him. There is a parking lot next to Jinci Park. Jinci Temple is not big, there are many tourists, almost all of them are large and small teams. The guide's explanation is very important. Otherwise, many places can't understand it. Several of us didn't invite the guide. Two children just learned the text and played with us by their backs. The beauty of Jin Temple is in mountains, trees and water. Zhou Bai, Tang Huai, Zuo Twisting Bai, Nanlaoquan, a small monk with white jade carvings in Han Dynasty. There are several rows of old photos in Jinci Temple. The scenes in the photos can be seen now. It's very rare. There is a post office behind Jinci Temple. You can buy postcards as a souvenir. Don't send them by post. I haven't received any letters at that time today.
Jinci Temple is located in Jinci Town, Jinyuan District, Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province. Its unique cultural heritage value is the earliest existing imperial garden in China. It is the ancestral temple of Jin State. There are dozens of ancient buildings in the temple, which have the characteristics of Chinese traditional culture. Jinci Temple is the unique and precious historical and cultural heritage of ancient sacrificial buildings, gardens, sculptures, murals and stele carvings. It is also the center of world architecture, gardens and sculpture art. Among them, Nanlaoquan, the portrait of maidservant and the portrait of the Virgin Mother are praised as "the Three Great Things of Jin Temple". Jinci Temple in May can be said to be the most beautiful time, fresh air, flowers blooming, shady trees, wandering in the mood, lingering forget to return, tourists are not many, enough time to play for a whole day, is a great place for leisure tourism....
I've been there twice, 20 years apart. Fifty percent are likely to go for the third time. These two times give me the same impression, darling, 20 years apart can be almost the same impression, it can be seen that there is no antique, or the original old building. Personally, I think it has the following characteristics: Firstly, Li Shimin's stele is said to be carved according to Li Dadi's manuscript. Li Dadi's words are really good, a sense of elegance. Secondly, the little monk who holds the bowl and catches water in the ditch of Nanlaoquan. Thirdly, the carved dragon wooden pillars in front of Notre Dame Hall. Fourthly, the three bronze men near the Xiandian Hall have placed four. One is said to have been made up later, and only three are original antiques. We went to observe which one is an antique.
It is believed that there is no place in Taiyuan without visiting Jinci Temple. It is not only a historical and cultural attraction, but also a good place for leisure and heat dissipation. Jinci Temple is actually inside Jinci Park. Anyone who signs Jinci Park on the bus stop can reach Jinci Temple Park. It's only a few hundred meters ahead after getting off the bus. There are a lot of drivers waiting for customers under the stop sign. They will tell you that there is a long way to go. Everyone knows that. Hey hey. Jinci Park doesn't need tickets very much, but the best scenic spots are in Jinci Temple, which requires tickets. From the park gate to the Jinci Temple gate, you will be asked to invite a tour guide along the way. The regular tour guide is 60 yuan. The local people's tour guide also hangs a tour guide card. I don't know whether it is true or not, but you can bargain. In order not to miss out on the best scenic spots, take less wrong roads and get a better understanding, we hired a local tour guide who took pictures for us while explaining, feeling much better than traveling with a group.
Recommend to all outsiders: to Taiyuan must visit scenic spots. As an important channel for Northeast people to understand ancient Taiyuan. Today, I recommend Dad to see it again. Jinci Temple has three unique features: one is Zhou Bai Tanghuai. Zhou Bai was planted in the Northern Zhou Dynasty, and Tang Huai was planted in the Tang Dynasty, which is still lush and lush. Second, the painted sculptures of the Song Dynasty. The painted sculptures in Notre Dame Hall are exquisite and lifelike, which are the best works in the history of Chinese sculpture. Jinshui has three sources, one is the good spring, the other is the fish marsh spring, and the other is the difficult old spring. Difficult old springs are the main springs in the three springs, from which the source of Jinshui flows for many years. The current is very small now. The rice irrigated by this spring is very delicious. In addition, there are also inscriptions of the inscription and preface of Jin Temple written by Li Shimin, Taizong of Tang Dynasty, which are very precious. And the ancestors of overpasses! This is a precious historical and cultural heritage of ancient sacrificial architecture, gardens, sculptures, murals and stele carvings.
If you go to Jinci Temple in spring, what you see there is an old and beautiful garden painting. It is the earliest imperial garden in existence in China. The buildings, ornaments and objects inside are all national cultural relics and national treasures. There are 98 existing buildings over 300 years, 110 statues, 300 steles and 37 foundry works of art. They are examples of the perfect combination of grandeur and elegance, ancestral temples and sacrificial buildings with natural mountains and waters. In March 1961, Jinci Temple was announced by the State Council as the first batch of national key cultural relics protection units, and in 2011 was announced as the first batch of national AAAA-level tourist attractions. It is the only precious historical and cultural heritage of ancient sacrificial buildings, gardens, sculptures, murals and stele carvings. Especially the inscription of Huizong in Song Dynasty is in big characters. We should know that Huizong in Song Dynasty is the pen owner of "thin gold body". When we get to Shanxi, we don't go to Jin Temple, but where do we go to see "the cultural charm of 5000 years of China"?
Jin Temple is a ancestral temple built by later generations to commemorate Tang Shuyu, the founding Prince of Jin State. It has been said that "less than Jin Temple, in vain to Taiyuan". Jinci Temple is surrounded by Jinci Park, which is free of tickets and has a good view. Walking in the park for about 10.20 minutes will lead to Jinci Temple. Our party decided to invite a tour guide, from the park gate to Jinci Temple, there are all kinds of listed tour guides, and even put a table on the sign of Jinci Temple tour guide, think of the online tips, resolutely not tempted, has been to find the lecture room, found the guide of Jinci Temple. Actually, it's window 2 next to the ticket window, but the sign is not obvious. Ask the ticket office staff to say it's inside. Under the guidance of the lecturer, we have seen Jinci Temple "Sanbao" (Xiandian, Fish Marsh Flying Beam, Notre Dame Temple) and "Sanju" (Zhou Bai, Nanlaoquan, clay sculpture painted portraits), and have a basic understanding. To go to Taiyuan, we must go to Jinci Temple, which has a long history and profound cultural heritage. The ancient buildings here are very historic, unlike some scenic spots which are totally new.

A large crowd of people waiting for buses (on Sunday) had to call black cars back to Taiyuan.
On the third day of National Day, we arrived at Jinci parking lot without any congestion. Most of the vehicles were parked outside Jinci Park parking lot, where there were some queues. In fact, it can be opened directly to Jinci Museum and directly to the gate. The Chrysanthemum Exhibition is being held in front of the gate. Time is precious and Jinci Temple is locked in.
