The original giant frescoes in the Daxiong Palace of Fahai Temple are in a state of shelter from light for protection. There are Cologne copies of murals in the Pharmacist's Hall behind the Daxiong Palace (all pictures below are taken in the Pharmacist's Hall). The original work of Daxiong Palace sells tickets alone. The ticket price is 100 yuan. It takes half an hour and opens seven times a day. If you don't think half an hour is enough, go to the door and buy a ticket after reading, and then look at it next time. But I suggest going to the pharmacist's hall to see the reproduction first, and then going into the hall to see the details of the original painting. There is light in the pharmacist's palace, which can clearly see the details of the characters and the color of the pictures. Looking at the original painting in the hall, I still feel much better than the duplicate version. It's still the difference between color and time. The technique of leaching powder and heaping gold is very clear and obvious in the dark wall of the palace, illuminated by strong light from the bottom to the top. The dark flowers on the transparent ribbon of Shuiyue Guanyin can only be seen in the original painting. The painters are extremely skilled. As far as painting techniques are concerned, they are the best among the murals I have seen with my own eyes. Maybe it's because this mural is still young (Ming mural) and well protected, so it's lucky to see such a complete mural. The explanatory level of Fahai Temple is very high and the explanatory details are clear. People who have no basic knowledge of painting and Buddhism have no problems at all when they follow the instructors to see paintings. If you like murals, when you go to Beijing, you can go to Fahai Temple to see the murals, you will feel like a good trip. The West Fahai Temple in Beijing was once a dense Buddhist temple. There are five unique features in Fahai Temple: millennia white pine, heavy-colored meticulous brush murals, Mandala algae well, Sanskrit Scripture incantation Buddha bell, four cypress and one hole bridge (outside the temple).
In the morning, I went to the Fahai Temple in the west of Beijing with my parents to have a glimpse of the frescoes of the Ming Dynasty. It was hard to accept the preaching style imposed by the lecturer, so I had to check some video and text materials after the visit. The original Fahai Temple is a key unit of national cultural relics approved by Sanxingdui and Yuanmingyuan in the same year, "first there are white pine, then there are Fahai Temple", two white pine stands in the Liao and Jin Dynasties, has gone through millennia. The murals were painted by more than a dozen palace artists 600 years ago. Although there were few visits to the murals, the court paintings emphasized rules rather than personality, and the same feeling was felt on the spot. The scene was dark, and I watched the white yarn of Shuiyue Guanyin, the snowflakes of 48 golden lines and the capillaries on the fox's ears through video. The figures in the north wall "Emperor's Buddhist Picture of Brahman" are lifelike, with broken skin and beautiful decorations of clothes and ornaments. In 1933, German photographers took a picture of the Fahai Temple, which was not damaged by the Cultural Revolution. It is said that the damaged Buddha statues are as beautiful as murals. Next time, if you have a chance, you have to make an appointment with a friend who knows these Buddhist allusions, so that you can have a deeper understanding.
It's worth visiting. There's a bus from the Apple Garden subway station, and then it's all the way up the Camel Bell Road. Must spend 100 to see the mural genuine, if you do not see the genuine also need 20 yuan ticket fee. It is suggested that if you have time, you'd better watch the video introduction outside, watch the copy of Pharmacist Hall and then go to Daxiong Palace to see the authentic works. True pictures can not be photographed, there is no light, each person sends a flashlight, wear shoes and gowns in, there is a special person to explain. It's only half an hour, but it's definitely worth it. The lotus flower in the painting is in bud and ready to come out. The gauze hung over Guanyin floats with the wind. The technology of leaching powder and sticking gold fills the picture with three-dimensional sense. Half an hour's journey makes people feel like they are in the Buddhist world. If you only look at the copies, you can't understand them at all.
There are five unique Fahai temples without incense monks: four cypress and one hole bridge, Millennium white pine, Mandala algae well, Sanskrit Scripture incantation Buddha bell, especially the Baoming Dynasty heavy-colored meticulous murals of Zhensi. The characters are vivid, the skin can be broken, the clothing decorations and beads of reeling beads are beautiful; the water moon Guanyin is as thin as a cicada wing on white yarn composed of snow, fox ear capillaries.... The original paintings were in a state of protection from light, and the murals were all taken in Cologne copies in the Pharmacist's Hall.
Watching TV programs introducing murals at Fahai Temple in Shijingshan triggered a desire to see them. After arrival, I don't think there are many visitors here, but if you enjoy the murals, you have to buy 100 yuan per person for each visit. One hour at a time, the rated number of people should wear shoes and gloves before entering Daxiong Palace, and send an emergency light at the same time. There is no lamp in the hall. Visits and explanations are watched with the lamp in hand. The murals are quite exquisite. Through the narrator's narration, we have a better understanding of the murals and Buddhism, and we have gained a lot.
Fahai Temple is hidden on the hillside with winding paths and secluded paths. The authentic paintings of Ming Dynasty murals on the four sides of the pink wall in Daxiong Palace are well preserved. Their paintings are exquisite and exquisite, their materials are scientific and luxurious, and their Buddhist meanings are far-reaching. They can be called world treasures. It is impossible to comprehend and comprehend without visiting it personally. May this pure land last longer.
Fahai Temple has a long history and is worth visiting. The murals in it are comparable to those in Mogao Grottoes. The lecturer talked for an hour. There is a need for flashlight lighting. Photographs are not allowed. In order to protect the world-class cultural heritage, I hope you go there and do not take pictures.
There are too many Fahai temples. I went to the Fahai temple in the suburbs of Beijing in the New Year. The ancient trees outside the temple are towering, and there are no lights in the murals of Ming Dynasty inside the temple. We hold up our televisions to see the paintings. The staff explained one by one about the lion and the leopard in the picture. They said that the lion was behind the former leopard because the ancients thought that the first thing was to give first and then report. I felt that everyone listened carefully.
The world's top murals hide in the Fahai Temple, which is absolutely a place that must be visited once in a lifetime. It is a miracle that the murals survived the disaster. The first time I went late, closed the door, and the next day I went persistently. I had to witness the charm of the world's top murals. If I had time, I would go to see them again. It was beautiful.
Because the murals cost 100 yuan, but now the scenic spots have learned to abandon Xiaobao Da. When I bought them, the administrator said that if you look at the murals for 20 yuan, the entrance tickets would be exempted. The murals in Daxiong Palace are really ingenious and beautiful. They are worth seeing, but without looking at the murals, there is no need to go. After all, Fahai Temple is also because of murals.
