Tianshui
Tianshui City is located in the southeastern part of Gansu Province. Ever since ancient times, people who went along the Silk Road had to pass through Tianshui. With a long history and rich cultural heritage, Tianshui is one of the birthplaces of ancient Chinese culture. The unique geographical location has created many unique natural landscapes in this place. Tianshui Fuxi Temple and Fengtai Mountain are where Chinese people from around the world go to conduct ancestral worship. The Maiji Mountain Grottoes, which are located in Tianshui, are one of China's Four Famous Grottoes. They are famed throughout the world for their beautiful clay sculptures and steep caves.

顺时针1986The Maiji Mountain Scenic Area is a typical Danxia landform, named for its shape like a farmhouse wheat pile. The mountains are steep, green trees form forests, and the environment is quiet. It is the four major scenic spots of Maiji Mountain Grottoes, Immortal Cliff, Shimen and Quxi The general name of Hejieting Ancient Town Hot Spring Scenic Area, a national 5A-level scenic spot, and most of this 5A is also given by historical sites such as the Maijishan Grottoes. Maiji Mountain is a scenic spot that combines humanities and natural landscapes such as Danxia Xiufeng, Qushui Maolin, etc. Maiji Mountain is commonly known as Maiji Cliff, which is a lone peak of Xiaolong Mountain in the West Qinling Mountains. Maiji Mountain Grottoes were excavated Above this peak, is one of the four major grottoes in my country. The scenic mountain is steep with verdant trees and waterfalls in clear water. It is a summer resort. There are 209 caves in Maiji Mountain. Because I stayed in Tianshui for a short time, my fellow colleagues kept complaining that scenic spots such as Xianren Cliff and Shimen were too pits. There was nothing to watch. It was actually 5A. In fact, you can go to Maiji Mountain to see the grottoes and the park where the grottoes are located. , If you have ample time to soak in the hot springs in the ancient town of Jieting, it is more casual and comfortable. After exiting from Tianshui Railway Station, there is a direct bus No. 34 to Maijishan Grottoes on the right. It will be available at 6:30 in the morning. The fare is 5 yuan. The journey takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes. Tickets for Maiji Mountain are 70 yuan. If you don’t see the grottoes, you only need to buy a ticket for Maijishan Park for 20 yuan, because you have to check the tickets separately to enter the grottoes. If you don’t buy the grotto tickets, you can’t see the grottoes. It is recommended to go early in the morning, especially in the peak season, because the grottoes are all excavated in the mountains, and you can walk through the steep plank road. The peak season will limit the current. Go early and spend half a day for a detailed tour. It will not be too rush, and it will perfectly miss the tourists.

M22***58The experience is very good and it is worth recommending. I checked the evaluation on the Internet before I went and I was worried. After I went, I felt that it was not so bad. First of all, what is said on the Internet is that the service attitude is not good. Neither of us has encountered a person with a bad service attitude. The only thing is that there are only two people at the front desk. The waiting time is not very long, but it is still acceptable. . Secondly, the price comparison mentioned on the Internet is the problem of dining. Ctrip orders a meal coupon with 98. You need to order a meal. Ninety-eight has a set meal. There are three Hong Kong-style snacks in a set meal. For ordinary girls and food intake Smaller boys are enough to eat and taste good. We went to eat at 1 o’clock on Saturday, so we don’t have to line up, and the food is served quickly

江湖一秀才2019-07-02 Tianshui is a place with many historical sites and beautiful mountains and clear waters. In addition to the most famous Maijishan Grottoes, Fuxi Temple in Qinzhou District is also a must-see. The Qinzhou District of Tianshui is the seat of the government, and the cultural relics are relatively concentrated. From Maiji Mountain, in order to be able to visit Fuxi Temple the next day, I chose to live in Qinzhou District. Fuxi is the ancestor of the Chinese nation and one of the three emperors. As the ancestor of the Chinese civilization, he made tools, cultivated farming, made marriages, established surnames, made book deeds, learned gossip, and used the lights of civilization to guide people out of the chaos and end the primitive age. Fuxi Temple, whose real name is Taihao Palace, is commonly known as Renzong Temple. It is located on Fuxi Road, Xiguan, Qinzhou District, Tianshui City, Gansu Province. It is currently the largest and best-preserved Ming dynasty building complex in China to commemorate one of the ancient "Three Emperors", Fuxi. The Fuxi Temple faces the north and faces the south, and is built on the street. With great respect and anticipation, I came here early in the morning and walked into the temple as the first group of tourists. Just in time for the Fuxi Grand Ceremony month, many places still retain traces of the celebration, and the glory of the celebration is vaguely visible. It is understood that the annual Fuxi Cultural Festival is held in Fuxi Temple on June 22. The ceremony for Fuxi is very spectacular. At that time, all the priests bowed to the east to show their respect for Fuxi, the ancestor of humanities. Then, the chief priest and the accompany worship the nine large and nine small round tripods on the east and west sides of the sacrificial altar in turn. "Nine Ding" and "Wu Gu" indicate that Fuxi is the honor of the Ninth Five-Year Plan, and "Fang Ding" and "Yuan Ding" represent the heaven and the circle. Fuxi Temple is one of the most famous ancient architectural complexes in Northwest China. It was declared as a key cultural relics protection unit in Gansu Province by the People's Government of Gansu Province as early as 1963. It is now a national key cultural relics protection unit. Fuxi Temple has a history of more than 700 years and has been rebuilt nine times. From the scattered ancient cypress trees in the temple, we can see the precipitation of the years. The ancient buildings in the temple include theater buildings, archways, gates, yimen, Xiantian Hall, Taiji Hall, Bell Tower, Drum Tower, etc., arranged in sequence along the longitudinal axis, advancing layer by layer, majestic and grand. The Fuxi Temple complex and the surrounding antique blocks are very large. It is said that there are only two Fuxi temples remaining in the country. The other is in two towns in Weishan County, Shandong Province. However, the scale and history of Tianshui Fuxi temple far exceed the latter. As a relatively rare temple dedicated to Fuxi in China, Fuxi Temple is commendable because it has many displays of ancient and Taoist culture, many wooden structures are exquisitely carved, and its archaeological value is also high. So for those who want to understand Fuxi culture, this is the best place to go. The area of Tianshui City is not very large, but there are many cultural relics worth visiting! There is also a free museum at the back door of Fuxi Temple, which can be visited together. After exiting the back door, turn right and walk straight for less than 10 minutes to reach Yuquan Temple. You can browse and visit together. At the end of the tour, you can go to the pedestrian street to eat quack and other specialties.

杨多多她妈Maiji Mountain Scenic Area is actually very large, including Maiji Mountain Grottoes Scenic Area; Maiji Mountain Botanical Garden Scenic Area; Xianren Cliff Scenic Area. Of course, you also need to buy tickets for each [貓笑] I decided to take a deep tour of Tianshui. I saw the Maiji Mountain Grottoes yesterday, and went to the Maiji Mountain Botanical Garden this morning, so I focused on another scenic spot in the Maiji Mountain Scenic Area. The result did not disappoint us. It is said that there used to be sages living in seclusion here, hence the name Xianrenya. Most of the temples and temples on Xianren Cliff are built on the top of the mountain or under the flying cliffs, integrating the religious culture of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism. You can also see the statue of Laozi, Confucius and Sakyamuni living in the same room (Figure 3). A cave temple where Buddha and Taoism are one. There are 197 statues from the Northern Wei, Song, Ming and Qing dynasties, and 83 square meters of frescoes are magnificent. From the Maijishan Botanical Garden, you will arrive at the Xianrenya Scenic Area along the winding mountain road for about ten kilometers. Tickets are 40 per person. You have to take a shuttle bus to get in. I asked about two kilometers and just walked up. When we arrived at a place where the shuttle bus couldn't get up, I asked the volunteers in the scenic area to tell us the approximate route, and then started the Xianren Cliff tour. Xianrenya Scenic Area is composed of Three Cliffs, Wulian Mountain and Six Great Temples. After reading the introduction, Wulian Mountain is endless. Only the Lingying Temple of the six major temples is still well preserved. Other damages are serious, so only Sanya can be seen. Along the road pointed by the volunteers, there were steep steps on the front. The volunteer girl said there were 409 steps in total. Because I was climbing the mountain yesterday and this morning, classmate Yang looked at it and said, are you sure you want to climb? I looked at the steep steps, it was better than going down here, so I gritted my teeth and climbed up. Stopping all the way, I arrived at West Cliff in about half an hour. Looking at the temples built under the sandstone cliffs of West Cliff, I am not only impressed by the extraordinary craftsmanship of nature, but also the wonderful ideas of mankind. The Buddha statues in the temple are even more colorful. Student Lao Yang kept feeling the aura in various temples, and went in time and time again. I sneered at him and said that now I don’t regret climbing 409 steps. After watching Xiya, in front of a small stall selling water, I ordered two cups and three turrets to drink slowly and take a breath. Drink enough to rest and continue to East Cliff and South Cliff. There are not as many things to see in West Cliff as these two places, but there are always surprises. There is a Thousand Buddha Shrine from the Northern Wei Dynasty on the East Cliff, and the beautiful Thousand-Hand Guanyin on the South Cliff. Although the old arms and legs of the mountain climbing for two days can’t be lifted with pain, but the harvest is full, I feel beautiful [貓笑][貨笑] [Fascinating laugh] No morning break, continue tomorrow [呲牙][呲牙]

Cherry??2009^_^When I came to Yuquan Guan, I found Yuquan and bought a glass of well water to drink a bit of salt. I saw ancient buildings and arborvitae in the painting view of several painters. There are more than 30 Taoist priests in the small Taoist temples, and the Yuquan Temple who bought the tickets wrote about charity everywhere.
