The Muta Temple is located in the center of the city near South Street. When the car drives by, it sees a tower in a distance, which looks like a wooden structure, like a street park. Some locals dance at the door.
The original name of the Muta Temple, Wanshou Temple, located in the county town of Zhangye, Gansu Province, former Zhangye Middle School campus, now the ancient tower square. The temple and towers were first built in the Northern Zhou or earlier, after the Sui, Tang, Ming and Qing dynasties rebuilt. The first floor of the tower is "Dengji Lotte" east, "Enter Sanmadi" west. The second floor is "West Tianzhengjue", "West for the treasure gold rope" and so on, the whole tower without a nail, all by the dougong, beams, columns, crisscross, each other, is a complete and solid wooden structure modelling. With stairs, for climbing. Each floor has a corridor, railing, can be seen from the railing, the whole tower gives a sense of height, trance, embodies the unique architectural features of our country. The top floor original ancient bells, trance, the sound of the bells in the sky, all the world. "The wooden tower sparse bell", once one of the eight scenes in Ganzhou, can be said to be: "The tower is over the Han, the bells sound white clouds."
Just in Zhangye City, you can go and feel it, all wooden structure, very ageing! ! ! Zhangye's food and accommodation are very cheap, there is a big Buddha Temple in 5 minutes walk, you can also go see it! !
Zhang Yong is everywhere ancient temple, but many have been destroyed, Muta Temple is the only remaining of Zhang Yong Buddhist pagoda, originally one of the five rows of pagoda, the original name of Wanshou Temple. The temple and pagoda was originally built in the Northern Zhou or may be earlier, after the dynasties of the Sui, Tang, Ming and Qing Dynasty to restore the present appearance. The whole tower is not a nail a rudder, all by the difference bucket hole, beam column connection, crisscross, pull each other.
The views are beautiful, really great, really unique, the architecture is solemn, there are so many people to worship here, great experience, I would highly recommend it to everyone!
