I took No. 5 from the East Railway Station and then reversed No. 2, totaling 11 yuan. I could only sit down the hill and climb up the hill. Physical strength is not a good suggestion to take a taxi. It's 10 yuan. Otherwise, there are many steps to climb from the hill gate. I got on the bus from the East Railway Station at more than 9 o'clock. It was nearly 1 o'clock at the mountain gate. It was just 36 degrees in the afternoon. I climbed a little bit and sweated and breathed. I took several breaks on the way to the grottoes. As for the scenic spots, I don't feel much about myself. Maybe it's because I'm too tired. It is suggested that you should take No. 604 as far as the mountain gate, but the last bus time is not fixed. It may be no longer after noon, so you need to take No. 2 downhill. Finally, I said that there would be cold drinks at every corner of the mountain for you to rest. I was afraid that the waste of money would be laughed and refused. When the heat stroke came, I had to find a place to rest. My aunt greeted me to sit down and handed me a bushel of fans. I hesitated to ask if I needed to buy them, but my aunt said no. When I left, I bought a bottle of water for 2 yuan.
The first batch of national protected cultural relics in Xiangtangshan Grottoes City are divided into South and North Xiangtang, which is relatively small in scale, but has not yet been developed. The admission ticket is 15 yuan, the cheapest in the country. The grottoes are very beautiful and can be seen at close range. They are worth visiting. The scale of Beixiangtang Mountain is relatively large and the development is excessive. I still like Nanxiangtang Mountain. Recommend! Here also want to Tucao Handan airport rental, out of the airport there is a row of taxis, and there are red armbands of people in the management, when the car, a wonderful scene took place, the red sleeve badge photographed us, it is very strange. After driving for a while, I asked the driver why he didn't use the meter. He said that Handan had a regulation that the airport should be 80 yuan to the urban area without the meter. Among them, 30 yuan was for the management fee with the red armband. A total of less than 15 kilometers of distance, Handan rental per kilometer 2 yuan, starting price 6 yuan. The price of 80 yuan seems to be catty. Handan's airport taxi was occupied by black cars, which blackened Handan. It is hoped that relevant leaders in Handan will attach importance to Handan's image and manage its windows well.
Xiangtang Mountain Grottoes in Handan City are very artistic sculptures. Xiangtang Mountain Grottoes, also known as Xiangtang Temple Grottoes, are located in Fengfeng Mining Area, Handan City, the southernmost end of Hebei Province, and are among the first batch of key cultural relics protection units in China. Xiangtangshan Grottoes were first excavated in the Northern Qi Dynasty (A.D. 500-577). Later, the Sui, Tang, Song, Yuan and Ming dynasties have increased. There are still 16 grottoes and more than 4000 statues. The grottoes are chiseled in the best quality rock of Gushan, which has beautiful mountains and waters. Grottoes are deep, people clap their hands and throw their sleeves in the cave, can give a magnificent echo, so the name "Xiangtang". Xiangtang Mountain Grottoes are divided into two parts, north and south, about 15 kilometers apart. Because the grottoes are on the mountainside, people talk and laugh, brush their sleeves and move around, all of which can send out clangorous echoes and become famous as the Xiangtang Grottoes. There are 16 existing grottoes, more than 450 niches on cliffs, more than 5000 statues in size, and a large number of scriptures and inscriptions. It is the largest grotto found in Hebei Province and the first batch of state key cultural relics protection units announced by the State Council. It is now a national AAAA scenic spot and a four-star forest park. In November 2012, the Xiangtang Mountain Scenic Spot was promoted to a national scenic spot.
For those who like to study culture and feel the breath of history, this is an excellent situation. The statues of more than 1400 years ago can be so exquisite. Although many stone statues have lost their heads due to lack of protection, they have escaped the poor repair of later generations, and can also see the real remains of the Northern Qi, Tang, Song, Ming and Qing Dynasties. The destruction of Buddha statues by people out of selfish interests is really astonishing. But the paintings, sculptures and decorations left behind are still of great ornamental and research value.
Because the grottoes are on the mountainside, people can talk and laugh, brush their sleeves and walk around, which can give a clanking echo and become famous as the Xiangtang Grottoes. Nanxiangtang is located at the foot of the mountain, which is seriously damaged; Beixiangtang, which was preferred by Emperor Gaoyang of the Northern Qi Dynasty, is located in the middle of the mountain and is relatively well preserved. In addition, there is a chance to encounter one of Taihang's eight longs beside Nanxiangtang.
Xiangtang Mountain Grottoes, also known as Xiangtang Temple Grottoes, are located in Fengfeng Mining Area, Handan City, the southernmost end of Hebei Province, and are among the first batch of key cultural relics protection units in China. Xiangtang Mountain Grottoes are divided into two parts, north and south, about 15 kilometers apart. Xiangtangshan Grottoes were first excavated in the Northern Qi Dynasty (A.D. 500-577), and were built by the royal capital of the Northern Qi Dynasty. Subsequently, the Sui, Tang, Song, Yuan and Ming dynasties were augmented. There are 16 grottoes and more than 4,000 statues. The grottoes are chiseled in the best quality rock of Gushan, which has beautiful mountains and waters. Because the grottoes are on the mountainside, people can talk and laugh, brush their sleeves and walk around, which can give a loud and clanking echo and make them known as the Xiangtang Grottoes. Surprisingly, when I asked a friend who lived in Handan for more than 20 years about the Beixiangtangshan Grottoes, she didn't even know about the site, which has a history of more than 1500 years.
Xiangtangshan Grottoes is located in Gushan, Fengfeng Mining Area, Handan City, which is divided into two parts, north and south, about 15 kilometers apart. Grottoes are on the mountainside. People can laugh, brush their sleeves and move around to give a clangorous echo, so they are called Xiangtang Grottoes. Previous online information shows that there are 604 buses in Handan that go directly to the scenic spot of Beixiangtang and walk along the road to the station. It is found that there is no bus here at all. After some telephone consultation, it is known that this bus is relatively delayed in the off-peak season. The morning in Handan is still slightly cold. The snow on the roadside is said to have fallen three days ago. Fortunately, it is very convenient to take a taxi to catch up with No. 604. The taxi driver is more polite. After asking, he takes a taxi directly to Beixiangtang. The air in the North China Plain is really not good. The fog is diffuse. The car quickly leaves the city. The fog is getting bigger and bigger. The snow in the farmland beside the road is vast. It makes my southern visitor very excited. More than 60 kilometers from Handan to Beixiangtang. Since it's called Fengfeng Mining Area, it should be surrounded by mines. The provincial highway along the way. Before entering the peak, the driver turned and thought. There were many large trucks on the road. The visibility was basically below 50 meters. The driver was very careful. Because the fog is getting bigger and bigger, we are very slow. In the memory of GPS, passers-by and driver, we feel the tunnel entrance in the mountain slowly. The tunnel is not long. When the car comes out of the tunnel, the big sun appears in front of us. The visibility is amazing. The snow is shining in the sunshine.
My sister explained the relationship between Beiqi and the grottoes, and the development of other grottoes. From time to time, let us observe the details here. Many of them are still very Indian Buddhist expressions. We look up at the mystery of the coffin storage on the roof of the Great Buddha Cave and admire the strength of the imperial grottoes. We are also overwhelmed by the beauty of all kinds of stone carvings. There is too much gossip here. There are hardly any Buddha statues with heads in Beixiangtang Hall. Some grottoes are almost a stone chamber of light. They are very ruined. Many stone carvings were repaired in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Their artistic style and characteristics are indeed original. There is a certain distance. Walking along the rows of grottoes, the last scripture-carving cave is one of the few Grottoes here. The inscriptions on the wall are very dim. This should be the grotto where the American scholars introduced in the previous books have carried out three-dimensional restoration. The shape of one Buddha, two disciples and four Bodhisattvas here is also complete, but there is still no head. Digital technology restores its American studies. These people are the owners of these Buddha heads, but these circumstances explain that my sister did not even know, and we began to hesitate whether it was wrong to remember.
To the west of Handan, you drive Qinglan Expressway with Hecun Exit. After you get off the Expressway, you will follow the sign. Although the Buddhist Grottoes in the Northern Wei Dynasty were not as famous as Yungang, Longmen and Mogao Grottoes, their cultural value was very high. It is the intermediate witness of the evolution of Buddhist culture in the process of the Southern Migration of the Dynasty
Go to Beixiangtang Grottoes. The Buddha statues here were built in the Northern and Southern Dynasties. It's earlier than the Dunhuang Grottoes, because the stone here is hard and not very elegant. The cliff stone carvings are very clear. It's shameful to hear that the Japanese stole the statue of Dover.
