Qingming holiday and his wife decided to go for a walk, free high-speed, Tiantai Mountain in Zhejiang is the destination this time, look at the birthplace of the Tiantai Sect, and breathe the air in the mountains.
Set off on time, the 300 km was called a jam, the G15W blocked all the way to Tiantai Mountain, and it took 7 hours to sit down and hurt my buttocks. Fortunately, I arrived at Tiantai Mountain smoothly. After a few kilometers of highway, I reached the Tianqing Mountain Guoqing Temple Scenic Area and drove directly into the area. I do n’t know why I do n’t need a ticket. The booked Tiantai Hotel is in the area.
The front desk told Guoqing Temple to close at 4 pm, and at a glance, 20 minutes left.
Guoqing Temple was built in the Sui Dynasty, and it is the birthplace of the Master Taizong created by Master Zhiji. Historically, there are many monks gathered here, which affects far away and overseas. When Jianzhen went east, he worshiped the National Qing Temple, and Japan and South Korea respected the National Qing Temple at Tiantai Mountain in Zhejiang as the ancestral home. The ancient trees around the Guoqing Temple are elegant and the environment is elegant. A small river at the gate, a Tang Dynasty stone bridge across the river, and the side of the shadow wall of the ancient temple in the Sui Dynasty is the entrance of the Guoqing Temple.
The 5 yuan ticket is very close to the people. It is said that the price has not been raised for N years. Step into the temple, and the gate of the ancient temple is in front of it. Because it is late, there is no tour guide here. There are many rooms here. It is said that there are 5 axes, and they are visited along the axis. The buildings here are basically in the Qing Dynasty. The monks walked around the temple. The wife said that their eyes were peaceful, and it was probably the country. The temple's aura was created.
Walk through the Yuhua Hall, worship the Great Heroes Hall, and look at the ancient plum trees, various monuments, and memorial halls in the Sui Dynasty, which are basically witnesses of China-Japan-China-Korea exchanges. It ’s late, many rooms are closed, walk around in the courtyard at random, admire the goose monument of Wang Xizhi, not far away is the cafeteria where the monks eat, and the courtyard is drying the bamboo shoots here, smelling fragrant, and eating. When washing dishes, I didn't care about our visit at all, it was very friendly.
Due to the late time, there are still a lot of regrets when visiting the Guoqing Temple.
Leaving Guoqing Temple before dark, opposite the newly built seven stupas, it is said that all of the Sui Dynasty had been destroyed. Next to the Seven Stupas, along the steps and steps, on the hillside is the famous Sui Tower, which is said to be second only to Songyue Temple Tower. The tower looked very dilapidated. It used to be overlooked in Guoqing Temple. The tower is nearly 60 meters high. It is said that the brick and wood structure is the only brick left.
Later generations strengthened the tower foundation, paved the steps around, stood under the tower and looked up, absolutely towering ancient tower! A small road next to the tower was the trail that Xu Xiake took in the past. Due to the fire prevention in mountain areas, the trail could not be entered, which is a little regrettable.
Leaving Sui Tower, the surrounding farmland scenery is good, take a walk with his wife, walk all the way back to the hotel.
The rest of the night restored the fatigue of driving the previous day, and the first stop drove to Qiongtai Xiangu. Xiangu is more than ten kilometers away from Guoqing Temple. Due to the small golden week, late cars can only be parked in the parking lot next to the reservoir dam. The bus costs 2 yuan to go to the entrance of the scenic spot.
The reservoir is called Tiantai Tongbai Pumped Storage Power Station, a device of the State Grid. This reservoir is not large, but it is also beautiful. The 65 yuan ticket is not cheap. It goes into the scenic area. It is said to be granite landforms. First of all, it is a large section of the boardwalk and walking next to the reservoir. It is still very comfortable. There is no climbing up or down the mountain road. The two sides of the boardwalk are not high mountains, and they do smell like canyons. It is estimated that it would be more dangerous if there was no water storage. The names of many scenic spots along the way are engraved on the stones, so to be honest, you ca n’t see them. Fortunately, the scenery is pretty, and people are very comfortable.
All the way across the stone bridge, through the river, there are many small bridges and waterfalls. Look at the surrounding scenery. Compared to Golden Week, there are really not many people here, and the main force is definitely people around Taizhou. Envious of Zhejiang's good mountains and water, Shanghai's leisure destinations are so scarce. After a short time through an artificial stone cave, began the Tongtian Road up the mountain.
The mountain climbing is still a bit tiring. The boardwalk is built on the edge of a cliff, up and down the steep steps, and it is quite thrilling to see the canyon below. Walking around, I found Perseus under the guidance of the locals.
Standing on the mountain, the surrounding scenery is infinite. Crossing Perseus, a dirt road can be directly turned over a hill to reach the uphill pass of Qiongya. We do n’t know the situation is also for the good road, turn the mountain to take the path, cross the wooden bridge, walk all the way back to Xiangu Shangkou, 5 yuan a People, directly to the parking lot of Xiakou Reservoir. Qiongtai Xiangu is well worth a visit.
Leaving Qiongtai Xiangu, we drove to Shiliang Waterfall, which is more than ten kilometers away. There are not many cars on the mountain road, and the surrounding scenery is also beautiful. For those of us who have lived in the city for a long time, it is absolutely beautiful. Look at the scenery all the way, follow the signs Shiliang Town arrived, not far from Shiliang Fei waterfall. We parked here at the gate of the small copper pot parking lot, which is still under repair. Tickets are 60 yuan, which is still not cheap. Step on the construction site to enter the scenic area, and follow the signs to go all the way in. Since I will go to Huading, I am not sure how long it will take to tour here.
Look at the Xiaotonghu waterfall on the way, there are many artificial landscapes, it seems not too shocking, along the stone road, about 40 minutes came to Shiliang Feizhen really. It is estimated that in order to increase the fare of the scenic area, those chicken rib spots are circled together in order to raise the fare. It is strongly recommended not to go through the small copper pot door and enter directly through the other door.
Shiliang Fei waterfall is right in front of it, a huge rock straddles the mountain, and the waterfall flows down under this huge bar, which made the literati saints of the past fall for it, leaving countless magnificent poems, known as "The First Wonders of the World." The ancient Fangguang Temple under the waterfall is a five hundred Arhat dojo. Enter and visit, with a strong sense of Zen.
The Guangfang Temple above the waterfall is a great place to meet Shiliang from zero distance. Here you can clearly see the inscriptions of the literati on the Shiliang. This is really a spectacle! Tiantai Mountain has countless scenery and many waterfalls, but it is definitely the best place to visit.
The temple is under repair and cannot be visited. After leaving Shiliang, under the guidance of the staff, I turned over a mountain and arrived at the gate of the small copper pot in 10 minutes. The road was dirt and there was no scenery, but we were very happy. Even if we did not turn back, we saved time.
Continue to drive to Huading National Forest Park, not far away, return to Shiliang Town, start a section of uphill road, and soon arrived at Huading. This is the main peak of Tiantai Mountain, and there are not many people on the road. Tickets are still more expensive at 50 yuan. The main peak of Huading is 1098 meters high, and the sea of clouds is vast. It is a treasure trove of plant resources and a good ecological environment.
Huading Yunwu tea is everywhere under the mountain. Tea farmers are picking tea, but they have not seen any tea leaves to buy. There are also several resort hotels around. Along the way, there are rhododendron rhododendrons everywhere. It is said that the rhododendron blooms in another month and is extremely beautiful. There are not many people on the mountain, climbing along the stone road all the way. Since I have visited 2 attractions, climbing the Huading is still a bit overstretched. Several pavilions near the top of the mountain are excellent viewing spots. The wind is very comfortable. There is no noise during the golden week. It is really cool to look at the mountains from a distance.
Continue along the road that Xu Xiake walked on, and reached the top of the mountain after a while. I was a little disappointed here. Except for meteorology, communication, etc., several houses and equipment towers were built. There was no landscape. We took a break and went down the mountain. Due to fatigue, No other paths were challenged. Afterwards, it was found that another road on the top of the mountain also returned to the parking lot, and the time was about the same. The mountain climbing tour of Tiantai Mountain is also considered a success.
After completing a day of climbing the mountain, we chose the old road to return to the hotel. I heard that the old road was relatively narrow and passed through many villages all the way. We did not take repeated roads and looked at different scenery to open the old road. There are few cars here, and the road is really not wide, but the road surface is quite good. It is still early, and I will go down to see the Gaoming Temple. Gaoming Temple is located beside the Youxi River, 10 kilometers northeast of Tiantai County.
It was created by Master Zhiyi, the founder of the Chinese Buddhist Tiantai Sect (then called Youxi Dojo). In the development history of Buddhist Tiantai Sect, it has a prominent position. In the near evening, I passed through a tunnel and arrived at the gate of the temple a short time ago. There were actually many cars parked. Don't visit the ticket at will and feel the power of Buddhism.
There are no monuments here, and the temple is still being expanded and repaired. There are three main axes here, and the area is indeed comparable to that of Guoqing Temple. Leaving the temple, walking along the mountain road, back to the hotel, it was getting dark.
On the last day of the Golden Week, I woke up early in the morning, thinking that on the first day, Guoqing Temple had some horses and flowers, and decided to pay a visit to Guoqing Temple again. The monks at the gate of the early morning temple were sweeping the courtyard. Many believers were doing Buddhist things in the courtyard. The main hall was filled with offerings, and the incense was very strong.
Along the axis, look at the white jade lion in front of the mountain gate that I didn't notice last time. It is said that this was brought by the Forbidden City. The eighteen arhats of the Great Heroes' Hall are from the Yuan Dynasty. The museum inside the temple actually has unearthed dinosaur eggs. Satisfied with the lack of supplements, say goodbye to Guoqing Temple and leave Tiantai Mountain.
Tiantai Mountain is the hometown of Ji Gong. We repeatedly weighed and decided to give up to see the former residence of Ji Gong. We drove to Xinchang, not far away, to see the Big Buddha. With the depression of the first day of traffic jam, and the road closure of G15W in the morning, we went directly to National Road 104 and ran all the way. Although the national highway is not convenient for high-speed, fortunately, there is no traffic jam and the scenery is beautiful, and it came to Xinchang very smoothly. The Great Buddha Temple is on the side of the national road. Xinchang belongs to Shaoxing. This scenic area is also expanding indefinitely. All irrelevant content is enclosed in the Great Buddha Temple scenic area. Tickets are worth 100 yuan.
This is called the Shicheng Scenic Area. It goes all the way along the road and passes through the archway of the Great Buddha Temple. Not far away is the newly built Reclining Buddha Cave. The cave is built above the ancient quarry. The cave has the meaning of Dunhuang Nirvana Cave.
Standing at the entrance of the Reclining Buddha Grotto, you can overlook the head of Maitreya Buddha in the distance. The head of the Buddha is newly repaired. It is said that the mountain looks like a Buddha's body, and it is just right to install a Buddha head. Okay! Modern crafts. Along the plank road, I arrived at another ancient site here, Qianfoyan, which was not large in scale and was built in the Eastern Jin Dynasty.
More than a thousand Buddha statues are engraved on the walls of ancient and small grottoes, which are important relics of Buddha statues in the Southern Dynasty. Continue to look at the Buddha's Heart Plaza along the road, and finally entered the core area of the Great Buddha Temple. The release pond at the gate of the temple is huge, and there is also the memorial tower of Master Wise.
Entering the temple, the cliff stone carvings on the cliff face are marked with ancient meaning. The Xiaoyao building dedicated to the Buddha is in front. The Xinchang Buddha is inside a cave grotto in Xianxianyan Rock, Shicheng Mountain. Outside the grotto, there is a majestic Great Xiongbao Hall. The Eastern Jin Dynasty Buddha is 13.74 meters in height. Too big, but history is very aesthetic and profound.
It is called "the first Buddha of Jiangnan". The original Buddha's charm is definitely not comparable to those of modern art works in the scenic area. The Buddha is on the golden body. It is said that it is a contribution made by Hong Kong hawkers. The Buddha's front desk looks up pretty. There are many monks in the temple, but according to the commentator, it is unknown whether they are practicing or earning wages. I feel that there is no purity of Guoqing Temple.
Leaving Xinchang, there is no traffic jam on the highway, and the Yongjin Expressway avoids the G15W and goes directly to Ningbo. By the way, the free high-speed eats Hangzhou Bay seafood. Xianyongjin high speed transfer to Baoguo Temple around Ningbo to Baoguo Temple. Here is the second oldest wooden structure in Jiangnan, a museum of ancient architecture. Tickets are reasonable at 20 yuan. Step into the scenic area and step up. The surrounding scenery is elegant. This is Lingshan in the northern suburb of Ningbo.
Not long afterAt the gate of Baoguo Temple, due to the vacation, there was only one interpreter, and the leader arranged the reception task, so we could only hang out by ourselves. The ancient architecture is extraordinary, and the main hall is the core here. There is no Buddha statue here, it is the display of ancient architecture. It may be to protect the hall. There is no light, and the hall is extremely dark. The hall was built in 1013 and has a history of 1,000 years. Looking at the exterior, the restoration of the eaves in the main hall in the Qing Dynasty was weird.
Stepping into the Millennium Hall, the Douyi, Moi Jing, and Gua prism are very unique here. The pillar foundation of the Song Dynasty is clearly different from that of the Qing Dynasty. Gua prism was the first time I saw my wife and me. This hall should be unique if it is in Shanxi. At present, it can be preserved in the humid Jiangnan area. Invaluable.
The interior of the several exhibition halls behind the main hall is basically an exhibition introducing Chinese wooden structures and building French styles. It is quite systematic, and the surrounding environment is quiet and absolutely comfortable. After visiting the entire Baoguo Temple and returning to the main hall, the interpreters and VIPs happened to be in the main hall, listening to the rich narration of Ningbo dialects. The VIPs nodded frequently. We also counted a few dialect services.
After visiting Baoguo Temple, drive to Cixi A Guo Hotel. This is the restaurant that I tasted when I returned to Shanghai from Putuo Mountain last year. It is absolutely delicious. The seafood in Hangzhou Bay is delicious and cheap.
The restaurant has not changed, more Indians are making flying cakes, and the delicious seafood draws a perfect end to this trip. The rainstorm of the Hangzhou Bay Bridge, all the way home carefully, contented.
