The hall sits north facing south, condescending, facing the Wujiang River. The temple is three rooms wide, with a width of 12.72 meters and a depth of 12.72 meters. The plan is square, which is in line with the characteristics of the layout of the small Buddhist temples in the Song and Yuan dynasties. There are 16 pillars on the top of the mountain with single eaves. There are three rooms. Beware that the space is 6.16 meters, and the ratio is close to two to one. The structure of the beam frame is between the hall and the hall. It adopts a beam-lifting structure, completely exposed and made, all with beams The pieces are assembled together, making full use of small timbers, and using small pieces to put together large pieces. This method is very rare in the existing early ancient buildings in China. The dougong of the main hall, the dougong of the outer eaves, use three in the Ming Dynasty, and one in the second. They are all made by Liupu as a single copy, single underhang, single arch, and plain fang. After the first jump from the top to the bottom, it saves a lot of wood and facilitates construction. Although this kind of superior practice is recorded in the literature, there are not many examples found in the existing ancient buildings in China, so it is very precious. The main hall of Tianning Temple is an ancient Chinese Buddhist temple building. It is one of the existing "official" wooden structures in the Yuan Dynasty in southern China. The beam frame structure preserves the style and characteristics of Song Dynasty architecture. In 1979 and 1984, the state allocated funds for repairs.
Jinhua Tianning Temple, thousand-year wooden pillars, 800-year-old bucket arches, national cultural relics. The main hall of Tianning Temple is a well-known early wooden building in the south of the Yangtze River. The entire Tianning Temple has been repaired many times. After the repair, the main hall of Tianning Temple has revived its splendor. When you arrive in Jinhua, those who like architecture can come here.
The temple was completely destroyed, and only one main hall was left on the hillside. Although it was rebuilt in the Yuan Dynasty, the old components were reused, so some of the pillars are thousands of years old, so even though it is an empty room, it is also a national cultural preservation unit. There is a viewing pavilion next to it, which is also a municipal cultural preservation.
This attraction is definitely one of the must-visit scenic spots in this life, I recommend everyone to play. Very suitable for the whole family to go out and play. The tickets are a bit expensive and the business atmosphere is a bit strong, but there are really a lot of monks practicing in it, not exactly the kind of attraction where you sell dog meat...
The most famous one in Jinhua is Jinhua Ham. I passed by Jinhua this time. I had limited time. I didn't plan to visit any scenic spots. I just had a Tianning Temple that didn't require tickets. Unexpectedly, Tianning Temple will not open today, but the street where it is located has brought us a lot of unexpected gains. Walking around, not only enjoys the natural scenery of Jinhua, but also feels the long history of Jinhua’s urban culture. The sense of heaviness, Jinhua’s food culture and business atmosphere, ancient traditions and modern civilization, natural scenery and artificial skills all give us a quick glimpse.
