E'meishan Jinding Scenic Resort, Emeishan

4.5
#1 of 12 in Fun & Games in Sichuan
Listed as a World Heritage Site, E'meishan Jinding Scenic Resort traditionally gets regarded as the place of enlightenment amid the clouds by both Buddhist pilgrims and tourists. Originally built in 1377, the temple suffered a lot of damage throughout history due to fire outbreaks, which destroyed many precious relics in the process, but the latest 2006 renovation truly brings the temple back its former splendor. Explore the serene environment which shelters attractions, including several grand halls. Even if you take the cable car, prepare yourself for climbing a lot of stairs, since the entire compound rests on the main peak of Mount Emei, at an elevation of 3,077 m (10,095 ft).

    Hill was very cold in the morning, be sure to wear warm clothes. The golden dome is ideal for watching the Sunrise, unfortunately half Sunrise was obscured by clouds, but also very powerful. Hill is in the eye, beautiful

    In Mahayana Buddhism, the Dharma which is the highest than Hua-yen of Dharma in the world. Avatamsaka world of three Buddha Pilu keep that Buddha, wonderful good fortune also known as Manjushri, the bodhisattva bodhisattva and the ten directions Pu Xian Buddha. Mountain King with Dharma's favorite dog went to the ten directions Pu Xian Buddha's Temple Mount Emei. In Buddhism, Samantabhadra meaning moral, spiritual practice throughout the realm. Was a concert of great wisdom and Nirvana of Samantabhadra Buddha fruit in the world practice. So, to Emei platform of practice-to this. In fact, Mountain King and Samantabhadra fate not shallow, and Mount Emei is the fate deep. I arrived during the Mount Emei, excellent weather, weather major changes when I left, sky miles good sunny days suddenly becomes a hazy fog of a scene. Followed coincided with during my Emei is Samantabhadra's lucky day, tickets for scenic merit activities, from physical tickets, accommodation and catering to save a lot of expenses. This is not enough to prove that Samantabhadra somewhere for me and is it? Is not just a poetic and picturesque scenery of Mount Emei scenic spot, having an affair is a religion such as mountains. Here in addition to enjoy breathtaking scenic beauty, also worship Kegon Samantabhadra, one of three Saints. According to Samantabhadra is the long-term practice and enlightenment as the Buddha of Mount Emei, so to commemorate will this mountain as a bodhisattva Samantabhadra Buddhist temple. So, we can hear to Emei mountain is synonymous with visit of Samantabhadra. In addition, on the Mount Emei scenic area as a whole is very large, although hill top road, route, but distances do not recommend walking up the Hill. Of course, if not travel, but except for devout Buddhists. Mount Emei is most known for the sea of clouds, the Sunrise, the Buddha and mountain monkeys. Clouds make people forget this is the body in the world, don't know where, don't know is a dream or reality, people don't know true or in a daze. However, true in this world who can clear it? Sunrise is to let people see the power of the Sun at the moment of the world, amazing for a long time and could not bear to leave. Buddha is one reason recognizes science and unity of dialectical philosophy of Buddhism in perfect harmony! While the monkey is a symbol of the opposition between desire and pure wisdom, makes people greedy, selfish, and no evil creatures realize all law due to the nature of theory of empty of wisdom! Therefore, not only to see the beauty of Mount Emei, even to contemplate life in the beauty, understanding of human nature. That is the emeishan, the famous Buddhist mountains give us grace, blessing and reward! Following mountain June I summarize some simple ...
