Zhanshan Temple in Qingdao is very, very historic. Today is the eighth day of April in the lunar calendar. I want to write about my feelings about Zhanshan Temple. According to legend, there is a Sakyamuni relic in the tower of Zhanshan Temple in Qingdao, so Zhanshan Temple will be so famous. Of course, there is no way to study it. I just feel that Zhanshan Temple has been repaired in recent years, and I especially like the hundreds inside Zhanshan Temple. Magnolia, very beautiful, when it blossoms, just like white butterflies, flying freely in the air, adding some romance to the centuries-old temple! Guanyin pond in front of the temple, every year, because of a large number of releases, causes some fish in the pond to die from lack of oxygen. After repairing last year, it can now be released again, but the ticket is 10 yuan, even if you don't believe it. Buddhism, it's good to go in and have a look at Buddhist culture. Next to the mountain temple is the Qingdao Botanical Garden. It's good to show respect for cultural relics or not to take photos.
Tickets are only 10 yuan, the temple environment is very elegant and green. Nobody peddled incense burning and fortune telling everywhere. They don't have to climb mountains very much. They're basically flat roads. The Buddhist Bodhisattvas are commonly worshipped. The key is purity. There is a Guanyin Hall which is very impressive. Just in time to read the Tibetan Sutra last Friday afternoon. It's so lucky!
Saint Langjun's paintings say that Qingdao - Pharmacist Tawen / Painting / Li Shuyong 2018-3-25 Zhanshan Temple, the famous temple of the ancient sea temple, belongs to the Buddhist Tiantai Sect. One of the ten sceneries of Qingdao "Zhanshan Qingfang" refers to Zhanshan Temple. Mountains are not high, but fairies are named. Water is not deep, dragons are spiritual. " The fame of Zhanshan Temple is closely related to the founder of the temple, Master Yanxu, the great master who once came here to lecture and promote law, and Master Mingzhe, the resident of Zhanshan Temple - the grand banquet of the Sutra, the gathering of ten Buddhas, and the gathering of good men and women. Zhanshan Temple was built in the summer of 1931. In 1932, Master Yanxu was presided over by Jile Temple in Harbin. The first phase of the project started in April 1934 and was completed in September of the same year. The second phase of the project started in 1937 and completed in 1938. The third phase of the project started in 1937, and the Tibetan Classic Building and Pharmacist Tower were completed in 1938. Today, we are talking about the pharmacist tower of Zhanshan Temple. Pharmacist Pagoda, known as "Pharmacist's Liuliuang Tathagata", is located in Zhanshan Temple in the south of Shanxi Province and the eastern foot of Taiping Mountains. It is a modern Buddhist pagoda built during the Republic of China (1937), with eight-cornered Seven-level Pavilion brick pagoda. The tower is more than twenty meters high, and its interior is actually three stories. The top of the tower is a gold-plated pagoda brake. The third phase of the project was built by Zhou Zhifu, then manager of Qingdao Huaxin Yarn Mill, and the two brothers of Zhou Zhijun donated a lot of money to celebrate their mother's birthday. In 1995, when the Pharmacist Tower was rebuilt, thousands of golden bronze Pharmacist Buddha statues were manufactured. Two Red-body golden Buddha statues made of aluminium were invited from Taiwan to be enshrined in the tower. Today, Zhanshan Temple is a magnificent building with increasing incense. In front of the tower, incense burning, worship and prayers are endless. In the morning or afternoon, people often see a kind old lady feeding pigeons in the open space in front of the pharmacist's tower. A group of pigeons come and go, jump happily, forage, land on the ground or on her shoulder, hands. Standing in the backlight silhouette of the setting sun, she seems to be another pagoda of Zhanshan Temple, and the pigeons seem to be transformed into seagulls flying freely by the Fushan Bay, constantly calling "love", "love".
Wherever you go, you have to go to a temple to worship.
