Nanchan Temple, the earliest Tibetan Buddhist temple in Qinghai Province! In the Northern Song Dynasty (997-1065 A.D.), monasteries were built in Fenghuangshan, and a certain scale was formed in the eight years of Mingle. Two years of Tongzhi reign in Qing Dynasty, part of it was destroyed! It is one of the Buddhist monasteries of the Han Dynasty. This complex, centered on the Guandi Temple, is one of the relatively complete ancient buildings in Xining. It is an important place for the religious activities of the Han Buddhist believers (Pure Land Sect) in the local and surrounding areas. It is also the oldest Han Buddhist temple in Qinghai Province. The temple has five courtyards and 86 houses. Its main buildings are Daxiong Palace, Thousand Buddha Hall, Jade Buddha Hall, Three Saints Hall, Weituo Hall, Maitreya Hall, Gezang Hall, etc. It covers an area of about 6,000 square meters. It was listed as the first-level cultural relic protection unit in Qinghai Province in May 1986. The monastery in Xining is named after its location. There is a character of filial piety on the hillside. There are pictures of Mother Mencius and Godmother Mencius in the murals. Unfortunately, the camera is out of power, so it is impossible to take pictures.
I don't believe in religion, but I like the color of the temple and the awe of the tall Buddha statue. Just arrived at Nanshan Temple, the sky began to cloudy, the wind blown petals scattered on the ground, the scene is particularly beautiful. It's a pity that my photography is not so good that I can't get the real picture of my eyes. As soon as she came in, Grandma told me that there was a free fragrance, and that it was safe to put on the fragrance. When I refused, I listened to my grandmother muttering her dialect, not very happy. Well, Shangxiang, keep safe!
Nanchan Temple and Fazhuan Temple are close to each other. They can overlook the downtown area of Xining. Although they are not big, they are very delicate. It is suggested that friends with religious beliefs can visit them. Not many steps, not tired, very comfortable!
From the railway station, take No. 103 to the foot of Nanchan Temple. You can climb straight up from the clove garden or obliquely insert the word "filial piety". Nanchan Temple is one of the relatively complete preserved ancient buildings in Xining. It belongs to the Pure Land Sect of Han Buddhism and is the oldest Buddhist temple in Qinghai Province. The "layout" stands on the side of the hill, with the Fazhuan Temple on the left and the Nanchan Temple on the right. There are Daxiong Temple, Thousand Buddha Hall, Jade Buddha Hall, Three Saints Hall, Weituo Hall, Maitreya Hall, Gezang Hall and so on. On the west side of the gate, there are Buddhist Buddhist monks. On the square in front of the Qianfo Temple, the smell of butter lamp made me very unsuitable for new arrivals. Although it is Han Buddhism, there are also magnificent turning canals and colorful banners on the square. From the shadow wall in front of the door to the eaves and corners of Daxiong Palace, the sculptures are extremely complex and delicate.
Free, a small temple, as a student of the Department of Architecture, it's good to know the structure of the building. People who are interested in architecture can also go to see it. If there is no special interest, they can go without it, but if they happen to go by the way, it's OK.
There are Tulou Temple in Beishan and Nanchan Temple in the south. Nanchan Temple has been destroyed many times in its history. What we see today is the reconstruction of the relics of the Qing Dynasty. It is a Buddhist Pure Land sect temple. Nanchan Temple is situated in the downtown area. After getting off the bus, it goes up the hillside. Guanyin stands like a kind eyebrow and eyes. Many people go to worship it. Many flowers are planted in the temple, which reflects the pure land of Buddha Gate and has the feeling of exotic peach-blossom.
Built in accordance with Nanshan Mountain, the scale is relatively small, free scenic spots, adjacent to Fazhuan Temple, magnificent temple, sacrificial incense free, there are no vendors inside and outside the temple, no false masters for fortune telling, rare Buddhist cultural clearing ground in China. It is suggested to go up Nanshan first and then downhill for sightseeing.
Nanchan Temple, also known as Nanshan Temple, climbed a long step into the temple. It feels like the temple's architecture is exquisite. In front of the Daxiong Palace, there are tall prayer tubes. The temple does not accept admission tickets. There are lots of fortune tellers in the doorway. Few tourists, very quiet.
