Xiaozhao Temple was destroyed in the early years, all of which were repaired, and its ornamental value was not very high. In addition, it has been overshadowed by the fame and scale of the Dazhao Temple. It is only a place where local monks and some Tibetans worship Buddhas. But the road outside Xiaozhao Temple is very busy and grounded. During the Spring Festival, many Tibetans come here to do business, especially busy. They can see many things that we Han people have not seen, and they can also feel the happiness and enthusiasm of buyers and sellers.
One of the earliest monasteries in Lhasa was built in 641 AD. It was laid down by Princess Wencheng and worshipped eight-year-old Buddha statues in the hall. Now, the monastery covers an area of about 4000 square meters and contains a large number of precious cultural relics (not open to the outside world). It is a key national cultural relics protection unit.
It takes about 15 minutes to walk away from Dazhao Temple. Xiaozhao Temple, as its name implies, is smaller than Dazhao Temple. It was established in 641 A.D. and has a history of more than 1,000 years. The Temple mainly worships the 8-year-old statue of Sakyamuni. Most of the people who go to the temple mostly go to the 8-year-old statue of Sakyamuni. However, there are fewer people here than in Dazhao temple. But there are also many Buddhist believers who kneel there! Personally, I took a little stroll and walked around, because I am not a Buddhist, so I can't appreciate any murals and paintings, and I came out in about 15 minutes.
The entrance and exit from the small door opened on the gate, because it was late and nobody asked for tickets, but the inside hall has been closed and circled around the hall. It may feel different from the normal time. It feels that the Xiaozhao Temple is closer to the people of the Dazhao Temple than the Dazhao Temple.
To give five stars is because what happened here is very important to me. I've been in Lhasa for the longest time, and there's a surprise, sigh and sigh that happened here. Lhasa is a magical city where you can meet the long-lost past. People who once thought they would never see again in their lives can be seen here. I will always remember. It can be said to be a dog's blood plot, a fatalistic arrangement in the dark, or just an accidental coincidence. Once my first love, the person I really liked when I was a teenager (among which there is a story that I can never forget), the last thing we saw was one afternoon seven years ago, when it was raining heavily on the one hand, and it was raining with tears on the other. We said goodbye and treasured it, but never thought of seeing you again. Seven years have passed since that afternoon that I will never forget, but on a sunny day in Lhasa, I was awakened and approached. Yes, he's also in Lhasa. We were surprised to learn that we were both in Lhasa. When we met at Xiaozhao Temple, it seemed to me that seven years or more passed in front of me in the rush of people. I dared not even face it, but I stood still. In the process of waiting, I played too much in my heart and did not know how to tell for a moment. It's just amazing. It's amazing. We walked side by side in the crowded streets of Lhasa, visited Xiaozhao Temple, had dinner in Namaside, visited Zongjiao Lukang Park, and enjoyed the charming Potala Palace in the night. Such scenery, and such people, make me feel like a world apart. Nobody expected that the first meeting after so many years would be on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, in such a legendary and beautiful city. The dramatic reunion took place many years later under the same starry sky.
It was almost six o'clock when I went there. In the afternoon, I happened to meet the Grand Confucian Hall to finish the evening class and tidy up the Pu tufts. The first time I saw the 8-year-old Buddha statue of Sakyamuni (the 12-year-old Buddha of Dazhao Temple was seen on the second day). Although it was through the iron ring curtain, I saw the shrine design of two dragons on both sides for the first time. It was very, very amazing, very, very beautiful. We should pay special attention to the design of the ground in front of the Buddhist chamber. It was very beautiful. In Xiaozhao Temple, the time is very short. After coming out, they follow the Tibetans to turn the canal together. Xiaozhao Temple ticket 20 yuan, feel cost-effective.
The size of Xiaozhao Temple is really small after visiting such Huang temples as Zhepeng Temple and Sala Temple. The entrance of the gate here can be entered as long as it is registered (during the ticket-free period). The turning corridor in the whole temple still leaves a deep impression on people. Most of the people around it are Tibetans, and they are very pious. The main bronze statues are to be seen in line. Blessed Bodhisattvas are also excellent works of art invited from outside Tibet.
There are 8-year-old Sakyamuni's statues inside, tickets: 20 yuan (or with stamps; if you want to send a postcard this can be sent); when you go there, the temple's interior and exterior walls are decorated, but it still does not affect everyone's enthusiasm to worship, along the way many pilgrims...
