The description of the Daxiangguo Temple in Kaifeng and the story of the reckless hero who plucked the willows are inseparable from the description of the Daxiangguo Temple in the four classical works "Water Margin". Today, there are also statues of Lu Zhishen plucking willows upside down in Daxiangguo Temple. Many tourists will take photos in front of this distinctive figure. It seems that Lu Zhishen is the first symbol of Daxiangguo Temple. It is said that this place was originally the residence of Xinlingjun, the prince of Wei in the Warring States Period. In China, there are not many Buddhist temples with such a history. Kaifeng and Baogong ancestral halls are close to each other. They can be reached on foot. The scenic spots are all in the urban area. There is no need to travel too far by car. Xiangguo Temple is in a busy city, and there is no scenic spot in front of it. Tickets for 45 yuan are half-price for students. Xiangguo Temple is not very big. After entering the temple, we followed a commentary and walked down. It took more than half an hour. In the Arhat Hall of the temple, we could see the statue of Guanyin wood with thousands of hands and thousands of eyes in Qianlong Dynasty.
Daxiangguo Temple is a must-see place in Kaifeng. Before I came to Kaifeng, I had a detailed understanding of the Daxiangguo Temple, and decided to go to Kaifeng and have a look here. Daxiangguo Temple has a long history and a great origin. According to records, it was once the ancient residence of Xinling, the prince of the State of Wei. I believe everyone who has studied history has heard of the name of Xinling. As for the change from the old residence of the emperor Xinling to a temple, it was the time of the Northern Qi Dynasty. In 555, Emperor Wenxuan of the Northern Qi Dynasty ordered the creation of a temple and named it Jianguo Temple. Since ancient times, the Central Plains has been divided and merged. Later, the Jianguo Temple experienced ups and downs, destroyed and rebuilt. The name of Daxiangguo Temple comes from Li Dan of Tang Ruizhong. The plaque of Daxiangguo Temple was written by him. When you go to Daxiangguo Temple, you can see two stone lions on both sides. Years have carved traces on them. They are very fond of them. When I arrived, it coincided with Qingming Festival. There were many pilgrims in Daxiangguo Temple, and people came and went. Just buy tickets and enter. The ticket seems to be 45 yuan. The inside of Daxiangguo Temple is very deep, which gives people a great feeling of atmosphere after entering the door. The first landmark building I saw after entering the door was a statue of Lu Zhishen upside down with willows, and I went to have a shadow. Daxiangguo Temple has several places that I am deeply impressed with: one is a place called the living room, you can look for it. The second is the Tibetan Sutra Pavilion in Daxiangguo Temple. There is a small room beside the Tibetan Sutra Pavilion that says the abbot's residence. The third is a place called Famen Dragon Elephant. There are many details in the Daxiangguo Temple that deserve careful study. It is suggested that ordinary tourists spend an hour and a half to have a close look. If it's an enthusiast, then at least three hours. Daxiangguosi Temple is a very good place, which is well-known.

Daxiangguo Temple is located in Kaifeng City, Henan Province, China. It is one of the ten famous temples of Han Buddhism in China. It is a national AAAA tourist attraction. The former residence of Wei Xinling, one of the four princes of the Warring States Period. Daxiangguo Temple was first built in Tianbao, Northern Qi Dynasty (555 AD). It was named Xiangguo Temple at that time. Later, it was converted to Xinling Monarch Temple, and then to Xiangguo Temple. It was also worshipped in the back hall of the temple. In the first year of Tang Yanhe (712), Tang Ruizhong named the temple Daxiangguo Monastery in commemoration of his reappearance as the king of the prime minister. In the Northern Song Dynasty, the status and scale of Daxiangguo Temple reached its peak, with 64 Zen Buddhist temples and law schools, covering 540 Mu and thousands of monks. It was not only the Buddhist center of the whole country at that time, but also the commodity distribution center of businessmen from all over the country in Kaifeng, capital. Traffic is also very convenient, many buses pass by. There is a special online ticket exchange office near the gate of the scenic spot, which is also very fast.
Parking at the entrance of Daxiangguo Temple, the big sign said that the car was 5 yuan, but the charge was 10 yuan. It said that the price had risen earlier, so I invited a commentary. I felt better to check the history on the Internet. At the end, the tour guide introduced a nail knife in Baogong's shape, and bought it for the children after watching the fun. One nail had not been cut that night, the quality was too bad.
The landmark landscape of Kaifeng, Daxiangguo Temple! Coming to Kaifeng without visiting Daxiangguo Temple is tantamount to not coming to Kaifeng! As four famous monasteries in the Central Plains and imperial monasteries! It is recorded in history! The Dharma is solemn! Here invite a Sami to go home and have a good time everyday!
I bought tickets online and in Longting Park, which is located behind the Kaifeng free market. The thousand-handed Guanyin here is beautiful, the Daxiong Palace is well preserved, antique and historic. In the temple, there are still donations for the restoration of the temple, which is one of the few large-scale temples preserved intact in China.
A fairly famous temple! The thousand-handed Avalokitesvara in it is very shocking! The place where the story of Lu Zhishen plucking willows upside down happened! Located in downtown area! The imperial temples of the Northern Song Dynasty! Now the scale is also very large! Still feel the momentum.
