Foding Front Court
When I first arrived at Niushou Mountain, the first thing I saw was the wind chime tower. A gust of wind passed, and the sound of the sound of the sky was passing by.
In the scenic area, you need to take scenic traffic, and divide it into the east and west lines. 10 yuan fare can sit anywhere 3 times, 20 yuan fare can sit in the scenic area unlimited times, of course, within a day, huh, huh! From the entrance, the first to come to Foding Qianyuan, which is a new attraction in Niu Shou Mountain in 2018. It shows the profound culture of Niu Shou Mountain with 100,000 square meters of natural landscape and small landscape. Foding Qianyuan is an important passage leading to the Foding Temple and the Buddha’s Roof. It is set up with the Tianzhu Range Rover Cultural View Wall, Jixian Bridge, Shi Niu Tu Plastic Rockery, Xinming Wall, Farong Plaza, Xinlian Square, and Stop 15 viewing nodes such as the lake, the fun cow garden and the late red trail. The whole three-level scenery – the foreground “蜓 红 红 莲 映 ” ” , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , 雾 雾 雾 雾 雾 雾 雾 雾 雾 雾 雾 雾It shows the environmental temperament of Niu Shoushan’s “hidden show”.
There is a waterscape plaza in Qianyuan, where there is a lotus fountain. There are scenes where the artificial scenery and the natural scenery blend together, and there is a scene that makes people linger.
There are six Tianzhu Range Rover cultural walls on the left and right sides of the Waterview Plaza. The walls are painted with themes on the walls, and the relevant poems are displayed below, which highlights the profound historical and cultural heritage of Niu Shou Mountain. From left to right, “the emperor’s two tombs, the solitude and the virtual, the fairyThe six cultural themes of the cave film, the head of the cow, the ancestral hall, the ancestral hall, and the flowering of the Qing dynasty. The string condensate refers to the sound of the throat, and there is no deep affection. The wind blows off the curtain, and the sound of the zither in Yumeixuan is fine. Slightly full of ears, it seems that there is a song “A curtain of dreams”: I have a curtain of dreams, I do not know who can share … if you can know each other and meet, a total of this dream.
The lake is sparkling and the clouds are hazy, showing a colorful fantasy in the sun. Looking at the top tower of the Buddha, it is full of mystery.
Yumei Xuan – the antique wooden corridor, covered with a gauze credit, a white angel singing in the piano, the music echoed in the ear for a long time!
Going forward is Jixian Bridge, which is named after the bridge is engraved with the sorghum and social famous allusions related to Niu Shoushan. This bridge is the best connection to the east and west sides of the Foding Front Garden. At the beginning of the bridge, there was no trace of smoke and rain, and the wind blew through. The clouds and light cages seemed to linger in the misty skirts of the fairy, lingering between the valleys. Yuting, a smile, I don’t know the world.
Walking along the bridge, one step at a time, with the scene into the ten-nine murals, was made for the Song Dynasty. The “Ten Niu Tu” uses ten pictures to depict the process of the cows. The shepherd boy is like a practitioner, and the cows are compared to the heart, pointing out the path of the Zen.
On the Farong Square, the Faculty of Fa Rong sat on the edge of the lake, surrounded by or standing, gathering a variety of animals with a relaxed state, vividly reappearing the legend of “Fa Rong, the group of beasts listening to Zen”. Visitors go here, the mysterious Zen sound seems to cross the vast time and space, echoing in the ears of every visitor.
There are many small and small sculptures of different shapes in the garden, very cute!
The Foding Temple is located in the south of the Shandong Peak of Niu Shou. It is the Hongfa Dojo of the Relic Protection Group. Foding Temple sits west to the east and is a Tang Dynasty architectural style temple. It covers an area of 2,3731.1 square meters and has a total construction area of 8104.6 square meters. It is one of the main buildings of Niu Shou Mountain. According to the function, Foding Temple is divided into five areas: Li Buddha, Hongfa, Zhaitang, Yi and Tea Garden.
There is a circle of downwardly concave large lawn on the south side of the square, with a tree at the bottom. The shaping of the terrain into the heart is perhaps a metaphor for the infinity of the Buddha and the universe.
The temple began in the early years of the Southern Dynasties. During the Tang Dynasty, the temple was grand and named Buddha Cave Temple, the birthplace of the “Niutou Zen” before the Zen Buddhism. After the Northern Song Dynasty, Yiming Temple was renamed. The Southern Song Dynasty was destroyed by war and the Ming Dynasty was revived. By 1856, the temple was destroyed by the chaos of Hong Yang, and the incense was interrupted for a hundred years.

There are ten water-spraying faucets on both sides of the release pool. It is one of the nine sons of the dragon. Because it likes water, it is often used for drainage on the side of the pool, bridges and building foundations.
On the two walls above the release pool, the statue of the ten parties is enshrined.
The three characters of “Foding Temple” above the threshold are written by the honorary dean of the Chinese Buddhist Academy. The couplets on both sides were written by Qin Zhifa, the president of the Jiangsu Provincial Federation of Research Associations, and written by the famous calligrapher of the province of Jiangsu Province, Tian Tianchi: Buddha heart is now, relics are heavy, and a vein is Xuanmen Kaijue Road; Niu Shou Lizong, Jinling Yangsheng, Qianqiubaodi Kai Chan Guan.
Entering the mountain gate, you will be greeted by the front stone sculpture “Lingshan saying map”. Above is the “King of Heaven”. On both sides of the Tianwang Temple are the bell tower and the drum tower. The entire building of Foding Temple is built on the mountain and distributed along the slopes of the hillside. Chinese temples generally have a system of “morning clocks and drums”, which is to use the bells and drums to report time. Knock the clock in the morning, then pick up the drum, knock the drum at night, then pick up the clock, so call the morning bell and drum. Calling the monks to go to the temple, doing martial arts to do their homework, getting up, sleeping, eating, etc. are all signals with bells. If there is a high-ranking Dade to visit the monastery, the bells and drums will be used to show respect and respect.
The building is a temple of heavenly kings. It has a high build-up. It consists of the main hall and the side halls on both sides. The whole building follows the system of the Kalan seven halls of the Zen temples, and inherits the architectural style of the Tang Dynasty. The king’s palace gates are connected together. “I will make my smile and the first spring of the cows turn into a happy life for all beings, and I will be saddened by the goodness of the first time.”
In Buddhism, the clock is not only a temple for the time, but also a great tool for promoting monasticism. According to the 敕修清法法章: “The big bell, the beginning of the jungle command. The sniper breaks the long night police sleep, and the sniper feels faint and stunned.” There is a classic saying: “Hong Zhong long sounds a group, There are no traces of soil in ten places.” In the morning and evening, the temple bells and sounds are one hundred and eight, which means that all sentient beings can get rid of one hundred and eight kinds of troubles, and the bells can make the three evils all have temporary suffering, so the monks in the temple are not merciful, and sooner or later. When I was in the bell, I sang 叩 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 偈 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 。
The lotus flower railings on the corridor are made of copper.
The pharmacist hall on the west side of the court. The pharmacist Buddha enshrined in the Pharmacist’s Hall, the full name of the pharmacist Liu Liguang. There is a “Pharmacist’s Classic”, which is the main book of Buddhism. The monks in the temple often read “the South has no disaster relief and longevity pharmacist Buddha”. For those who want to be devastated and healthy, please read the Pharmacist. The Buddha Temple of Foding Temple is a confession hall for males.
Buddha’s Holy Land
On the square below the Buddha’s Pagoda, there is a gate full of reliefs, which shows: On that day, the Buddha was born. He touched one finger and one finger, and since then, the world has changed. The relationship between the King of the King and the Queen of Maya is very good, but there are no children who have been married for many years. The net rice king is very upset that there is no heir to the throne. It was not until the age of 50 years that the king of the meal was over, and the first time she was pregnant when she was 45 years old. According to Buddhist legends, Queen Maya’s pregnancy was due to the dream of seeing a six-toothed white elephant emptied from the right rib into the queen’s belly. After waiting in October, the lady will return to her family for a ride on the sedan chair. During the trip, she will pass through the Lumbini Garden, the garden in the morning, the fragrance of flowers and plants, and the beauty and elegance. Mrs. Mayer was deeply attracted and said with joy: “What a beautiful garden, rest temporarily here!”
Sniffing the fragrant lotus in the spring pool, listening to the singing of the birds and the pleasing, the lady slowly walked in the forest, a green and worry-free tree, green and soft foliage, slowly drooping to meet the saint, Mrs. Mayer Raise your right hand and caress the young leaves of the new beauty. In an instant, the Prince was born from the mother’s right threat; after the birth, he walked seven steps in the ten squares, and the blossoming lotus emerged from the ground and took over. The right hand of the prince is the right hand and the left hand, and the lion is a lion: “The sky is the world, but I am the only one; the three worlds are suffering, I am safe.” The Heavenly Mentor is born to the aunt, and since then, there has been a dawn in the dark world, and the enthusiasm of all beings is understandable. hope. Suddenly, there were six kinds of vibrations in the earth. The princes of the Kowloon King’s mouth spit warm and cold, and the Brahma kings held the umbrella cover. They led the heavens to scatter the treasures of smallpox, lynx, Qibao and Mingxiang in the void. Happy to welcome the birth of the Buddha.
The Buddha’s top tower, solemn and solemn, stands tall and straight, is the representative of the Buddhist culture of Niu Shou Mountain. The building has a height of about 88 meters and a total construction area of 4,402 square meters. The style is a nine-story, four-sided, pointed roof. The Buddha Pagoda echoes the tower of the Hongjue Temple in the Ming Dynasty, recreating the grand pattern of the “double towers” of Niushou Mountain in history.
The Foding Palace is located in the abandoned mine pit between Xifeng and Dongfeng on the top of Niu Shou. Make full use of the old iron ore mining pit, built on the mountain, with 4 floors above ground and 6 floors underground. The total construction area is about 136,000 square meters. It carries the restoration of Niu Shoushan ecology, the worship of Buddhist sacred objects, and the historical and cultural style of Nanjing. mission.
In order to naturally repair the historical and cultural landscape of Niu Shou Shanxi Peak, the designer designed a large dome outside the small dome of the Foding Palace. The large dome is made of lightweight, fully hollow aluminum roof to repair the Xifeng skyline.
The entire Foding Palace is themed with the Buddha’s top bone relics. The exterior is divided into two parts, the big dome and the small dome, which are provided for accidental support and internal support. The shape of the big dome is covered on the small dome, which symbolizes the infinite blessing of the Buddha; the lower part of the small dome is the shape of the lotus throne, and the upper part is the shape of the Moni orb, which combines to form the sacred image of the “Lotus of the Lotus”.
The Foding Palace building is supported by the theme of the dome. It is divided into two parts: the outer dome and the inner support. The length of the large dome is 120 meters. It is shaped like a Buddha’s ancestral temple. It echoes with the head of the head of the cattle and covers the small dome of the underground palace. Above, it symbolizes the infinite blessing of the Buddha. The whole small dome is like a Buddha’s hair, and the single is a combination of hands and fingers, which means that thousands of believers support the Buddha.
“Fo Ding Cliff·Wenshu Shengshan” is the name of the whole cliff located under the protection of the Dadingding Temple of the Niufeng Mountain in the Niu Shou Mountain. The whole is divided into two layers. The upper layer is made of natural boulder according to the shape of the northern cave. There are three large and small caves. The lower layer is mainly composed of various shallow deep reliefs and scriptures. The upper and lower layers are combined into one giant bergamot.
The Foshan Palace hollow aluminum alloy dome spans 220 meters, making it the world’s number one. When the construction personnel installed the curved aluminum alloy plate, the high-altitude bulk, hoisting and integral sliding technology was adopted, and the curved surface sliding technology was adopted for the first time in the world.
The small dome is composed of a piece of metal triangles connected to each other. Each triangle is like a pair of double sacred buddhas. It means that thousands of believers support the Buddha. The whole look is like the Buddha’s hair, forming the intentional shape that symbolizes the Buddha’s head. .
The Niu Shou Mountain Peak, where the Foding Palace is located, collapsed for historical reasons and formed a huge mine pit with a large amount of tailings slag around it. In the planning and construction process, Foding Palace made full use of the existing mine development and construction, minimizing the amount of excavation, and at the same time strengthening the tailings slag on the mountain.
Enter the small dome, one side is a continuous arched door hole, one side is a mural relief, and the top is a lotus lamp.
The Buddha’s Palace is not a single dome, but a patio-style up and down straight space. From the entrance to the ground floor there are six floors, you can take the elevator to go down.
The 9-story Foding Palace has three major spaces, which correspond to the original Buddhist, classical Buddhism, and contemporary Buddhism.Its architectural form, arts and crafts, and artistic works have carried out a comprehensive and systematic expression of Buddhism from India to China, from Nanjing Buddhism culture to the origin of Niutou Zen Buddhism. It can be called a comprehensive Buddhist architectural art space.
The most striking thing about the Thousand Buddha Hall Center is the worship of the Buddha’s top bone relic. The height of the tower is 21.8 meters. The shape is based on the shape of the Dabaoen Temple, the Golden Seven Treasures of the Ashoka Tower. It is like the inverted pillar of the Shoumi Mountain in Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes, symbolizing the clean and solemn Huazang world.
The tower is divided into two parts, the upper part is the inverted cone-shaped 13-phase wheel, which symbolizes the thirteen days of Buddhism; the lower part is the cloisonne cover, surrounded by four jade-carving Buddha statues.
Around the temple of the Thousand Buddhas, there are eight lotus buds in the shape of a lotus petal around the wall. Each buddha has a different form of stupa, called the “Big Eight Spirit Tower”.
Overview of the Eight Great Spirit Towers The famous mountain temples include the stupa styles of Bhutan, Nepal, Tibet, Qinghai, and different regions of the mainland and different Buddhist genres.
There are four 1.2-meter-high jade carving Buddha statues around the relic tower. The four jade Buddhas are made up of 25 tons of heavy white jade, and then they are carved into pieces. It is extremely rare.
According to the records of the classics, after Sakyamuni Buddha Nirvana 2,500 years ago, different types of Buddha’s body relics, such as Buddha’s tooth, Buddha’s finger and Buddha’s top bone, were left behind. The remains of the Buddha were regarded as sacred objects by the believers, and they were worshipped. Among them, the Buddha’s top bone relic is the most precious.
The dragon-shaped beam has a head and a mouth in front of the two dragons, meaning that the opening and closing is good. However, only the faucet has no dragon body, too monotonous, using the “slice carving” technique of Dongyang woodcarving, carving the moiré, and the pieces are combined and pasted on the “children’s column”. After designing, the dragon is like driving in the clouds. The mysterious dragon sees the mystery of the tail.
Wanfo Gallery is a circular corridor with two layers. Each floor is composed of several thousand buddha walls and different forms of murals. The whole body is composed according to the twelve zodiac signs and the Buddha statues. Each statue has different images. Handprint changes.
A piece of boulder is engraved with the poem “Niu Shoushan” of Emperor Qianlong. “Talk about it with a million planes. You can see the mountains and mountains. Daniel Dengjue Road, Baiye visits Zen. Zhong Yun is still quiet, and the search is also in the gap. Peeping the glimpse, the dust is read and deleted.” Describes his experience and feelings of taking the opportunity to visit Niu Shou Mountain in the Japanese machine. “The glimpse in the gap” refers to the spectacle of the Niu Shou Mountain.
Entering the gate of Niutou Temple, Yulian: Yunfeng Holy Land, Cuizhu Huanghua, is Buddha, and the sky and the clouds are the heart of Zen. The elevation level of Hongjue Temple is 180.50 meters. It was built in the Nine Years of the Tang Dynasty (AD 774). It is said that the Tang Dynasty Zong Li Yu was built as a “dream” and was later destroyed. The tower is now reconstructed in the early Ming Dynasty. The tower is about 40 meters high, with seven layers of bricks and eight sides. Each side has a pot door, two small windows, carved wooden rafts, elegant style and simple style.
Zheng He Memorial Park
Zheng He’s tomb is located in the south of Niushou Mountain. It is more than a thousand meters away from the north. There is a small village with only 17 households. The village name is “Zheng Jiachong” and the villagers are all named Zheng. The whole village was alone and far from Zheng He’s tomb. The people in this village called the Niu Shou Mountain as the “Xizi Mountain” and called Zheng He’s Tomb “Ma Hui Hui Tomb”.
The cemetery is quiet and elegant, and there are not many tourists. After historical research, the tombs here are buried in the hairpins and boots that Zheng He brought back after his death overseas. This is very similar to our history of Yangzhou.
There are a few kittens in the garden, and I am lazy in the sun. I think it may be that the guards in front of Zheng He are attached to them, and they are guarding the mausoleum for Zheng He day and night!
There is a coffee shop on the shore of the Baoxiang Lake in the park – melted coffee, tired of walking, you can spend leisure time in the afternoon.
Sitting there drinking coffee, reading an afternoon book, and occasionally walking away from the gods, relaxing the tired and tired body and mind, is quite a pleasant thing.
Niu Shou Mountain, a mountain with stories; a coffee, a tasteful cafe. If you come to Niushou Mountain and pass by chance, stop by in a hurry and enjoy a quiet and relaxed life here.
Just heard the word of the canteen, I thought it was the kind of school and factory canteen that was full of people, lined up for dinner. But when I came here, I found out that this is not the case at all. There is a buffet of 68 yuan, and there is also an elegant box in the environment. In fact, it is a flavor restaurant with Niushou Mountain.
The dining hall has an elegant environment and can accommodate more than 300 people at the same time. The ingredients are also carefully selected, in addition to group meals, buffets and Jiangning special dishes!
The log design of Niu Shoushan canteen is like a cure for a cure. The simple temperament and natural texture make people dine in the most comfortable state.
“Jinling View Ancient” 曰: “Looking at the two peaks, such as Niujiaran.”
There is also an old saying in the locality: “A Niu Shou Mountain, half a history of Nanjing.”
Perhaps because of the long history of Niushou Mountain, it has witnessed the growth of Nanjing City.
Or Niu Shou Mountain, which has the reputation of “Tianzhu Mountain” in the Eastern Jin Dynasty, has always been a famous Buddhist mountain.
Such a kind, let Niu Shoushan become a pilgrimage site for Buddhist believers.
Buddha said that I should come here,
So I am coming.
In this winter,
I met Niu Shoushan…
