☘️Before coming to Qingyang Palace, I originally thought it was a palace, but it was actually a Taoist temple built in the Zhou Dynasty. ☘️I heard that Qingyang Palace has a long history, so I visited it with a pious heart. ☘️The facade is small, once thought to be a small and medium-sized temple, who knows that there is a lot of things inside, covering an area of about 120,000 square meters. ☘️The golden horizontal plaque "Qingyang Palace" hangs high above the gate, majestic, vigorous and powerful. ☘️The Sanqing Temple enshrines Sanqing, the highest Taoist god, and the statues are very spectacular. Friends who like fairy tales should be very interested. ☘️Tickets are 10 yuan/person, and admission is stopped at 5 o'clock, but in fact, the venue was cleared one after another from 4 o'clock. I didn't visit the whole venue at 3 o'clock, which is a little regrettable. ☘️The Qingyang Palace is sparsely populated and the environment is quiet. Occasionally there are a few Taoist priests burning incense and cleaning. It is indeed a good place for Taoist cultivation.
Qingyang Palace is to go to other places to play by the way. The Hunyuan Hall in the palace is tall and majestic, and the Bagua Pavilion enshrines a statue of Laozi riding a green bull. There are two bronze-cast green sheep in front of the Sanqing Hall. They are the treasures of the Qingyang Palace. The left side is the single-horned green sheep, and the right side is the double-horned green sheep. Hunyuan Hall is the second major hall of Qingyang Palace. It is dedicated to the highest Taoist god, Taiqing Moral Tianzun, one of the Sanqing Tianzun, namely Taishang Laojun. Why does it always remind me of his gesture of peace to Sun Monkey, but there are not many tourists here, so it is quite worthwhile to see. There is also a tea room inside, and you can sit down and rest when you are tired.
Visit the Qingyang Palace. There are eight sculptures in the courtyard, which are the Eight Immortals of Penglai. The sculptures are vivid and photographed specially.
A Taoist temple with a long history, the history can be traced back to the Western Zhou Dynasty. According to legend, Lao Zi came here after he left Hangu Pass. It was rebuilt in the Tang Dynasty and later destroyed by the war. Today, the buildings are all rebuilt during the Kangxi period of the Qing Dynasty. A hundred years of history.
Qingyang Palace was the first stop we visited in Chengdu, very close to the hotel where we were staying. Qingyang Palace is the most famous Taoist temple in Chengdu. There are not many tourists inside, it has a great atmosphere and unique architectural style. We stayed inside for a long time.
