On April 15th, the leading organization of female employees who had never been to Xinchang went to Xinchang Dafo Temple for a spring trip. Dafo Temple is located in the urban area of Xinchang County, and has a history of more than 1,600 years. The date and scale of its excavation are similar to those of Yungang in Shanxi and Longmen in Henan, and it is more than 200 years earlier than the Leshan Giant Buddha in Sichuan. Surrounded by mountains in the main scenic area, strange rocks are abrupt, stone walls, metallography, rare buildings and ancient trees in the valley are integrated. The stone Maitreya statue carved by three generations of monks on the cliffs in the temple for 30 years is known as the "China's Big Buddha, the first in the south of the Yangtze River", and is the representative of the grotto statues in the south. The statue of the Big Buddha is located in a cave in the rock, and outside the cave is the magnificent Daxiong Hall. The water gurgled outside the hall, and the fragrance mist lingered in the hall. As soon as he stepped into the gate of the hall, one felt an invisible shock. Baoxiang is solemn, kind eyebrows and good-looking, smiling and staring at each "common man". The Buddha statue is 16 meters high and its head is 4.8 meters high, which accounts for one-third of the body. However, after the parallax adjustment, the big Buddha seen by tourists looking up is very dignified, and there is no feeling that the head is big and the body is small. This is really the magic of the Xinchang Giant Buddha. The place is “the largest Buddha in the south of the Yangtze River”. The Big Buddha Scenic Area also has scenic spots such as the Carving Village, the Fangsheng Pond, the Buddha Heart Square, and the Petrified Wood. Sculpture Village: There are several large mountain bays in the Big Buddha Temple, and each mountain bay contains intoxicating scenic spots. "Tibet" is a major feature of Xinchang Dafo Temple Scenic Area. The first mountain bay is the Eagle Shooting Village. There is a poem that is well known to all ages in the Tang poem: "May I ask where is the restaurant? The shepherd boy refers to Xinghua Village". There is such a poetic and pictorial meaning in front of me. A village entrance door can be seen in the camphor forest and crape myrtle flowers on both sides of the stone level, and it is written by Mr. Jin Yong. Along the stone road, you can fully appreciate the sentiment of the ancient villages with Jiangnan characteristics such as small bridges and flowing water, restaurants and manors. In order to reflect the connotation of the film and television culture of the Big Buddha Temple, the Xinchang Tourism Department expanded the entire mountain bay into a village for tourists to visit, entertain, and relax on the basis of the original CCTV "Shooting the Eagles." "Chief artist Qian Yunxuan selected design. Release Pond: Inside the gate of the Great Buddha Temple. The release pond of the Dafo Temple is not an inherent building in ordinary Buddhist temples, but it has a magical effect to enhance the scenery at the Xinchang Dafo Temple. Whether it is a pilgrim or a tourist, as soon as they enter the outer mountain gate, they will be attracted by the two clear pools. The water surface reflects the green hills on two sides and the green trees on all sides, and the feeling of Buddhism pure land emerges spontaneously. The "Nanwu Amitabha Buddha" on the south side of the release pool was written by Master Hongyi, and the three characters "released pool" were written by Qian Silian. Shoushi-Petrified Wood Wood Petrified Forest is located at the foot of Elephant Trunk Hill in the scenic area of Dafo Temple. There are more than 30 unique wood fossil species collected in Xinchang, with the highest one reaching 14 meters. These different shapes and poses Wood fossils may be rugged and majestic, or slim. They are combined with the strange cliffs and rocks, mountain ponds, springs, and flower lawns here, forming a large natural bonsai, which is a feast for the eyes. These tree-like stones were formed by the crustal movement of the virgin forest 100 million years ago. They are as old as the dinosaurs. A section of wood fossils placed at the side of the Dafo Temple’s release pool is 3.5 meters high and 1 meter wide. There is a stele erected beside the fossils, inscribed "Longevity Stone", and wrote a couplet: "The great changes in the earth's crust are deeply buried under the strata. "The new year is transformed into a stone". Visitors here often stop to admire and take pictures in front of the mascot. In recent years, film and television masterpieces such as "Journey to the West", "Smiling Proud Jianghu", "The Legend of the Condor Heroes", "Shaolin Martial King", "Dragon Babu" and other film and television masterpieces have been filmed in Xinchang, including the Xinchang Great Buddha Temple and Qianzhang Valley. The district has become a film and television location base. Film and television culture has increased Xinchang’s popularity and promoted Xinchang’s tourism economy. We also visited the Xinchang Agricultural and Sideline Products Market and the Shanhuo Market and bought Shante products. On the way back, we went to Shengzhou Necktie City by the way, where everyone happily shopped and fully enjoyed the leisure and beauty of life. After five o'clock in the afternoon, with joy and satisfaction, we first passed 104 National Road, and passed through Zhangzhen and Fenghui, an ancient town in Shangyu, to enjoy the scenery of the fields along the way, and then returned to Yao via Yuliang Highway.
