Self-driving, there is a place to park at the door, get off and walk a short distance, next to Longquan Primary School. On the third day of the New Year, there were a little more people, but it was worth it. The real ancient building was built in the fifth year of Emperor Yuanshun (1399). It is worth mentioning that there was a pavilion made of pure stone beside it, without a nail. There is free hot tea in the pavilion, which can be regarded as safe tea. There is a path beside the temple, which overlooks Jinjiang City. I don't know if it is the bright top of Jinyong's works.
Nowadays, there are no direct buses to Cao'an, Quanzhou City and Jinjiang City, and it is difficult to wait for buses to pass nearby. But from Jinjiang Wanda dripping past only a dozen yuan. There is no admission ticket for the Cao'an now, which is only a temple building. The remains of the Cao'an mani are precious, there are stones like toads, and a few old cypress trees. The back hill can overlook the scenery. Next door, there is a newly built temple which is relatively large. Villagers set up stalls to sell local snacks at the entrance. There is no accommodation or catering around. Motorcycle's trip in and out costs more than drops. Mountains and temples are not big enough for half an hour.
Very worthwhile place to go, a quiet and heart-nourishing geomantic treasure! Recommend!!
Cao'an Temple, located at the south foot of Huabiao Mountain in Jinjiang City, Fujian Province, is about 20 kilometers away from Quanzhou City. It is not a famous tourist attraction in Quanzhou. However, it is the only relic of Mani Guangfo and Manichaeism (Ming religion written by Mr. Jinyong) temples in our country, and the only relic of Manichaeism temples in the world. Cao'an began in Shaoxing, Song Dynasty, and was originally named after Cao'an. From Emperor Shunde of Yuan Dynasty to the fifth year of Yuan Dynasty (1339 AD), it was changed into a single eaves stone structure Xieshan style building. The Cao'an is built on a cliff. It has four rafters, three open rooms with a width of 1 183; 67 meters and two deep rooms of 3.04 meters. Under the eaves, the roof is supported by a single row of arch beams, which is simple and simple. A circular shallow niche with a diameter of 1.68 meters and a Manichaeism Buddha carved in the niche is the only statue of Manichaeism in the world. The statue falls on the lotus flower bed and sits 1.52 meters in length, 0.83 meters in width, 0.32 meters in length and 0.25 meters in width. It is amazing that the face of the Buddha is pale blue with pink hands and gray-white clothes, making use of the differences in the rocks. Natural tricolor is delicately constructed. The monastery is free of tickets. The scenic spot is very good. It takes about 2 hours to play. The only inconvenience is that Jinjiang and Quanzhou do not have direct bus to the monastery. Generally, self-driving tours are the majority.
Entering the scenic spot, you can see the lush green leaves and gorgeous flowers and fruits. There are several streams of clear water flowing through the gullies. This area is the moist countryside of Jinjiang River Basin. Entering from a small door and climbing up the steps of the bluestone slab, we can see the grass-house, which is built on the hill. The door is open and the walls outside the door are stripped of red paint. It looks very old. Walking in the crowded crowd, each believer worships there with a fragrant incense in his hand. Only the door pillars on both sides of the grass-house are engraved with "vast silent Sanmodi, pure and bright shining respectfully". The Hua Yan Sutra proves the hard fate between Buddhist Master Hongyi and Cao'an.
Last week, I went with my mother, baby! The air is very good! There's someone sketching!
The site of Hess Culture Silk exists. It is worth visiting and the only Manichaeism in the world.
