    ———————————————————————
    Sometimes when you go to play, it’s a matter of thought.
    Nanjing is my second hometown. I spent my four-year college career here. It is a great pleasure to come back to my alma mater to meet my teacher.
    Take the high-speed train in Shanghai. Now the fastest, you can reach Nanjing in less than 90 minutes. It is very convenient. If you take a taxi after the high-speed rail, remember to take the Jiangning route and go to the hotel to check in.
    Check in is the Tsui Ping Shan Hotel, very close to Niushou Mountain, you can take a taxi back and forth.
    
    
    Then head to Niushou Mountain.
    Niu Shoushan, named after the north and south double peaks of the mountain, is like a double-headed horn.
    “Jinling View Ancient” 曰: “Looking at the two peaks, such as Niujiaran.”
    Also known as “Tianzhu Mountain.”
    The Eastern Jin Dynasty prime minister Wang Dao once advised the founding regime of the Jinyuan Emperor Sima Rui to dispel the idea of ​​building a double symbol of imperial power outside the palace. Please ask the Jin Yuan Emperor to take out the Xuanyang Gate, the Nanzhao Niu Shou, the two peaks facing each other, very spectacular, and persuaded Yu Yuandi: “This day is also awkward, and it is awkward to change!”, hence the name “Tianzhu Mountain.”
    There is also an old saying in the locality: “A Niu Shou Mountain, half a history of Nanjing.”
    It is about the long history of Niushou Mountain.
    
    The building here is imitation of Tang style, magnificent and rich in foundation, and it is very common to see it.
    The facilities are also relatively complete, there are convenience stores at the door, the price is quite close to the people, and the Red Cross Ambulance Station is also close at hand.
    
    
    Because it was directly from Shanghai, it was late, and I had to eat lunch in the Niu Shoushan canteen before entering.
    
    
    
    There is a self-service here, you can use it at will.
    Of course, ordering is no problem.
    Eat a white soup mutton pot in winter and warm it up.
    Seafood coffee pots, to taste.
    The black-boiled octopus is still a mustard-flavored oyster.
    There is also Jiangning Yipin.
    I didn’t think that the restaurant in the scenic area would taste so good.
    
    
    
    You can play it after eating.
    The scenic area provides a self-service voice interpreter rental service. The east entrance is about 3 hours, and the Foding Holy Land is about 1.5 hours. The rental fee is 20 yuan/unit (deposit 200 yuan/part). I think I rent one. Still better. If you need a commentator, the cost of the whole lecture is 160 yuan / person, the cost of the single Buddha top holy area is 95 yuan / person, you can take what you need.
    Entering the park, it is recommended to take a battery car. This young man is very tired to walk, and the area of ​​the scenic spot is relatively large. If there are older people, it is estimated to be more difficult.
    There is a place to buy tickets at the door, it is better to buy unlimited, remember to not lose the ticket.
    1) Entrance point: Niu Shou Station (East Entrance), Sanbao Station (West Entrance).
    2) Ticket price:

     Buddha’s Holy Land (Buddha Tower, Buddha’s Roof)
    Take a battery car in the holy place of Foding.
    In order to see the show, the first stop chose here.
    
    
    In fact, the style design of the entire scenic area is biased by the Tang style, as well as the Japanese landscape garden style, white sand paving.
    
    
    The trees are also beautifully trimmed.
    
    I always feel that there will be long steps to the road to the Buddhist temple. It is the road to the Holy Land and needs some tempering.
    
    
    Along the way, you can see the cute little monk, the statue of a small monk, the embarrassing and embarrassing, and the ecstasy, which can be regarded as a scenic spot in the scenic spot. If you are interested, you can count how many statues, and what expressions are there.
    
    On these steps, there is a wide platform that can overlook the beautiful scenery of Jiangning. When the weather is good, the scenery is unobstructed.
    And looking up at the Buddha’s top tower, it seems to have towering into the sky.
    
    
    The garden design here is really master-level, step by step, and a few pine trees reclining, it is also interesting.
    
    At the same time, you can also see the LOGO card of Niu Shoushan, you can take a photo.
    
    The painting of the birth of Sakyamuni Buddha, the former prince was born to walk seven steps, and step by step lotus, and one finger, one finger, said: heaven and earth, only I respect.
    
    In order to facilitate the up and down, you can take the elevator to the Buddha’s Roof.
    
    
    Walk a few more steps, first enter the eye, is the Buddha Temple.
    
    
    If you have a fragrant smell, there is a incense burner here, you can pray in earnest.
    The Buddha Pagoda, with a tower height of 88 meters and an area of ​​4,677 square meters, is a Tang Dynasty-style building. The Buddha’s Pagoda is one of the landmarks of the Buddha’s Holy Land.
    On the eighth floor of the Buddha’s Pagoda, there is a copper-cast Buddha’s Diamond King, which is engraved with the full text of the Diamond Sutra written by Master Lung. On the ninth floor, the temple is dedicated to a Buddha sitting in the Vishnu. It overlooks the four seasons of Niu Shou Mountain.
    
    
    Right opposite the Foding Temple is the Niutou Zen Cultural Garden, which can be reached on foot. People say “Spring Niu Shou” because spring is the most beautiful time here. The flowers on both sides are blooming and colorful, and pedestrians will stop there. .
    The inscription of the courtyard door – Niutou Temple, the latter is the other one of the Niushoushan Twin Towers.
    
    
    
    
    Then there is the Buddha’s crown palace.
    
    
    The Buddha’s Palace belongs to the Shenkeng Building. It is also the only long-term offering of the Buddha’s top bone relic in the world. It is 220 meters long, 160 meters wide and 89.3 meters in height. The single building area is about 136,000 square meters.
    The external space is divided into three parts: the big dome, the small dome and the Buddha cliff. The interior space consists of nine floors, three floors above ground and six floors underground. It consists of three major spaces: the Zen Grand View, the Relic Temple and the Relic Palace.
    The entire Palazzo Ved Palace is not only the main place to cherish the Buddha’s top bone relic, accepting the worship of the believers, but also the cultural exhibition site where the relics and the world’s Buddhist Zen culture are concentrated in various artistic techniques.
    External space:
    
    
    One flower, one world, one tree and one bodhi, this mustard is also the world.
    I feel that such a design is all-encompassing. It seems to be centered around the Buddha’s Palace, and it can be seen from any angle.
    
    
    
    The Buddha’s Palace and the Buddha’s Twin Towers are perfectly integrated into one.
    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.
    
    
    
    Cliff stone carvings can also be seen.
    “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 Cliff Stone Carving is a stone carving art in ancient China, referring to calligraphy, statues or rock paintings carved on the stone walls of the cliffs. The cliff stone carving originated from a memorable way of ancient times, prevailing in the Northern Dynasty, until the Sui and Tang Dynasties and the Song and Yuan Dynasties continued.
    
    
    
    The base of the small dome is the shape of the lotus throne. The entire lotus throne is composed of 56 flying Bodhi gates that symbolize the Buddha’s infinite wisdom, and 56 cloud gates that symbolize good luck. It is combined with the small dome of the Mani Baozhu to form a lotus flower. The sacred image of the treasure.
    
    
    
    Into the Zen environment, the north and south are 112 meters long, 62 meters wide from east to west, the total height of the building is 46.5 meters, the internal net height is about 38 (41.2) meters, and the space area is over 6000m2, which is oval. The core of the Zen Grand View is the Zen culture. It consists of three parts. The Zen Garden, where the Buddha was born, the Zen Garden, and the Lotus Theatre in the middle, together represent the story of Buddha’s life. Along the footsteps of the Buddha’s practice, people are made to realize the miracle of becoming a Buddha by the Sakyamuni.
    At the top of the Zen Grand View is the dome of the Jurassic, and the pattern is derived from the sacred tree buds of the Buddha Nirvana. The dome is covered with a full-cover light-transparent film and lighting to create the first morning light in the morning, the warm daylight at noon, the evening glow and the moonlight into the night.
    
    Zen of Fuhai: The Fuhai Center of Zen is a statue of Sakyamuni. The entire reclining Buddha is 9 meters long and is made of copper. The skin is imitation of white marble, which fully displays the tranquility and serenity of the Buddha.
    Zen Fun Garden: Focusing on the way of landscape landscaping, with the theme of chanting story culture, it expresses the taste and artistic conception of nature and life.
    In the moment I entered, my breathing stopped temporarily. This is the feeling of unity between nature and man.
    
    
    When the weather is good outside, there will be light inside.Different.
    The different landscape lights inside, also appeared in the solemn treasure of Buddhism.
    
    
    
    The Zen Garden is located on the south side of the Zen Garden, which symbolizes the birth of Buddha. The overall shape is like a lotus flower, and there is a worry-free tree in the middle. On the north side is the Zen Garden where the Buddha is enlightened. In the middle is a linden tree that never fades. The black and white sandstone on the ground is a metaphor for the chaos of the world and the purity of the Buddha.
    
    
    
    From January 1st, 2018, every day from 10:00 am to 11:30 am, from 13:30 to 15:00 pm, in the Buddha’s Palace, the Zen Temple will be held for about 30 minutes each of the “Lian Buddha” Buddhist Zen Ceremony. And stage multimedia show performances. No reservation is required and is included in the ticket.
    The believers who are paying homage can support the lotus heart lamp, and walk around the Buddha for three weeks, sincerely pray.
    
    
    
    The rituals are slightly different in different time periods. If you supply the lotus lamp, you can see the process of the reclining Buddha rising and rising.
    On the other hand, it is even more shocking, and the surrounding lotus petals will rise slowly.
    
    
    The supporter can enter. The shape of the reclining Buddha can be borrowed from the statue of the reclining Buddha in the 158th cave of Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes. The face is solemn and kind, and the reclining Buddha can rotate slowly 360 degrees, symbolizing the Buddha’s gaze.
    Buddhism music is based on ethereal music. When the music rings, the lotus petals rise and are closed in one place, but the lotus petals are hidden in the organs. Suddenly the door is opened in the bronze door. We hold the heartlights slowly, and the surrounding Buddha The color painting rotates, it is the story of the Buddhist scriptures, and it can be said that it can be changed.
    A week around the Buddha, make a wish, pray for the family, then put your hands together, worship three worship, and give your heart to the temple.
    
    
    
    Then enter the hall of the relic, the hall of the relic is underground, you need to take the elevator down, wear the shoe cover to slip, so you must remember to wear.
    After the elevator, the relief is Xiangyun, next to the Buddha name.

    The main hall of the relic, also known as the Buddha Hall, is 33 meters above the ground. It covers the first, second and third floors of the underground palace. It can be divided into the thousand-buddrine hall and the Wanfo-language inside and outside, presenting a mysterious and special Victory in the world of Buddhism.
    
    
    Someone here can lead the blessing around the relic tower, and the believers can follow.
    
    The Thousand Buddha Hall was designed according to the fourth support of the Diamond Mandala Mandala. The entire hall has a total of 1343 Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, recreating the sacred scenes of Buddha and Bodhisattva mutual support. Among them, the main hall of the main hall symbolizes the big relic tower of the big day.

    The scale of the Tang Dynasty was grand, magnificent, and beautiful. The village was generous, neat and not dull, gorgeous and not slender, stretched and not ostentatious, simple but full of vitality. It was the perfect embodiment of the spirit of the times.
    The Buddha Temple, inherited this style.
    
    
    The level of the building group is well-ordered and patchy.
    It is precisely the Hongfa dojo of the relics of the relics, so it is more pure and solemn.
    It is recommended to bypass clockwise.
    On both sides are the Zu Shi Temple and the Jia Lan Temple.
    
    Go up to the main hall.
    
    
    There is a step by step lotus in front of the main hall.
    
    Standing on a high place, you can see the beautiful scenery of Qianyuan.
    
    This layer of courtyard structure is rigorous and full of atmosphere.
    
    The corridor and the center can be up to the highest point.
    The highest point is the court.
    
    
    
    It seems to have returned to the Tang Dynasty.
    Standing in front of the Han Dynasty Hall in Chang’an, in my impression, it is probably what it looks like.
    
    The corridor is stepped, the details are very, the steps are up, and the life is tasted.
    
    
    
    There are gardens along the corridor, and the shadow of the setting sun is even more beautiful.
    
    The garden design here is the famous Japanese landscape design master Mr. Cang Yongxiu, who uses Japanese style dry mountains and rivers.
    Dry mountain water is a kind of Japanese garden, but it is also a form of Japanese painting. Generally refers to a miniature garden landscape made up of fine sand gravel, plus some stacked stone groups, occasionally containing moss, lawn or other naturalelement. There is no water feature in the dry landscape. The “water” is usually represented by sand and the “mountain” is usually represented by stones. Sometimes the surface of the sand is painted to express the flow of water.
    
    
    
    Walking out of the Buddha’s Temple, the sun is tilting west, it is the evening.
    Everything here is dyed with a touch of golden orange.
    
    
    
    
    Go to the west line and take a look.
     Melted coffee
    You can call the car on the west line, and there are fewer people to go.
    But this café is really not to be missed.
    
    
    
    
    When I went there, it was still a Christmas atmosphere, and the portraits were excellent.
    
    
    There is another characteristic of Niu Shou Mountain, that is, even the bathroom is a model of aesthetics. Look out, is this the bathroom?
    
    
    It’s not too early to come out.
    There are many small things in the corridor that come out for sale.
    
    The outside of this country is a wind chime tower. When it is windy, it sounds very sweet.
    
    Take a taxi back to the hotel.
    The room is still very warm, and there is a turndown service that will bring a fruit plate and a small snack.
    The next day, I am going to see the teacher and classmates.
    
    
    
    Eat a bit of dinner, salted duck is a special feature of Nanjing, jade burning wheat is very high value, like 哎.
    
    
    
    I think that Niu Shoushan is really full.
    There are no images in the ten parties, and six roads are extinct. Jump out of the three realms, not in the five elements. As soon as you are one, you will take a step. Sitting off the Buddha’s gate, the fans came to the road.
