Every time I think of impetuosity, I always think of the big city of Thailand, of the Pamahatai Temple, and of the war disaster that happened there. Heart, let it calm down, such as the Islamic girl sitting on the ruins drawing, such as the Indian old lady sitting on the rubble. This was once the great city hall in the center of Asia, coveted by Khmer. During the war, some people abandoned Buddha statues under trees and were entangled by banyan tree layers to form "tree body Buddha". There is a complete Buddha statue and many red brick pagodas in the temple.
This temple is a relatively well-preserved temple, and there are complete Buddha statues. It feels that the damage of the temples in the big city is very serious. We must avoid going to the temple at noon. The sun is too poisonous. It is suggested that we live freely in the vicinity early in the morning. There are only 50 tickets for this temple. There are also 220 tickets for sale. If we go shopping by charter bus, we can buy the combined tickets in one day, and if we ride a bicycle by ourselves. It's better to choose a representative ticket to buy alone. It's too far between several scenic spots. Rent 50 bicycles a day, and pack a dumb car for an hour 300. It's still expensive to return it to 200. Many people will make a good deal of money. Pictures taken with Buddha statues should be squatted or sat down, not taller than Buddha statues. An administrator sat there and stared at them all the time. There are not many tourists in the whole big city, so it's comfortable to go around by oneself. Where bicycles are rented, a map of 98 temples will be sent free of charge. It's shocking, of course, most of them have only pedestals left. Joint tickets include six scenic spots, two of which are outside the city and are valid for one month.
The Pamahatai Temple is one of the earliest Buddhist pagodas built in the city, but now only the base is left. From the surrounding pagodas, you can see the trace of that time. The most famous scenic spot in the temple is the tree wrapped around the Buddha's head at the entrance. The smiling Buddha's head is wrapped around the roots of the old Bodhi tree, which is one of the seven wonders of Thailand. The main pagoda is a Khmer-style pagoda, which collapsed and rebuilt. After the invasion of the Burmese Army, the monastery was full of incomplete, and everywhere there were broken walls and traces of looting and destruction. It should be noted here that when taking pictures with the Buddha's head, you should remember to squat down, because in Thai Buddhist culture, the head of a person can not be higher than the head of a Buddha.
Palmahatai Temple is a place you can't miss when visiting the big city. There are many Khmer pagodas in it. One of the most famous points in this temple is that banyan trees wrap buddha's head and the roots wrap a buddha's head. It has a quiet feeling. If you want to take photos, take off your hat and squat down to show respect, because your head can't be higher than the head of Buddha. All kinds of ruins and broken walls still vaguely reveal the brilliance here.
Mahatai Temple Mahatai Temple is one of the earliest Khmer-style pagodas built in the city, but now there is only the base at the bottom. From the pagodas around it, you can see the traces decorated with mortar at that time. The most famous scenic spot in the temple is the tree wrapped around the Buddha's head at the entrance. The smiling Buddha's head wrapped around the roots of the old Bodhi tree is one of the seven wonders of Thailand. When taking pictures with the Buddha's head, squat down, because the Buddhist culture in Thailand is that the head of a person can't be higher than the head of a Buddha. The main pagoda of Mahatai Temple is a Khmer-style Buddhist pagoda, which collapsed and rebuilt. After the invasion of the Burmese Army, the pagoda was full of fragments, and there were traces of broken walls and looted and destroyed. Because of the war, the temples of the big city were almost destroyed once. Because of greed, the remaining Buddha statues became avatars. Mankind could not restore the ruins that had been destroyed, so that future generations could only remember the horror of the war.
Chartered one-day tour to Dacheng, in the afternoon to the Palmahatai Temple, 50 baht tickets, if one-time six temples in Dacheng see the pass 220 baht. But two of them are very far apart, and the monuments of the big city still need a complete understanding of the history of Thailand. It's more interesting to take a closer look. The city was once the capital of Thailand's last dynasty. The King built a magnificent palace and Buddhist temple, negligently forming an army, which aroused the greed of neighbouring Myanmar. After the Burmese army came to the city to rob and burn, it tried to destroy the evidence of its aggression and robbery by burning temples. It is a pity that there are still ruins and ruins. Bodhisattva statue head, after hundreds of years, has become today's wonder, if you have to squat or sit, can not be higher than the head of the Buddha to show respect.
[Mahatai Temple] Which temple is the most famous in Dacheng? I guess ten people will answer Mahatai. After all, by coincidence, the temple has a tree-holding Buddha landscape, which is also used as many cover designs of Dacheng's brochure. It can be said to be a beautiful business card of Dacheng. The temple is located in the eastern part of the Forbidden City. It is not particularly far from the railway station and bus station. It can even be passed on foot, closer to the Pabi Bridge. It was built in the period of King Polomaro I. The function of the temple is mainly to place sacred relics of the Buddha. It belongs to the Royal temple. There are 209 pagodas and 10 monasteries in the Central Plains of the temple, but most of them are only foundation. The temple has a central tower, surrounded by small pagodas with niches and temple-style pagodas. The central pagoda is built of laterite and then painted with plaster. The lotus bud-shaped top pagoda is called Sukhotai style, which is different from other countries'pagodas. Mahatai Temple is a very big place. There used to be quite a lot of Buddhist pagodas. So it takes about an hour to walk around now. Especially when you are holding Buddha in the tree, many people are around it. After all, it is the most famous place and a fairly legendary story. It is said that during the war, when Buddha head rolls over there, a tree grows from it. When it grows up, the Buddha's head is surrounded by tired days and months. The Buddha's smile is also a bit meaningful. It is amazing the divine power of nature. The temple is also the most visited place for tourists in the big city, so there are bathrooms, super parking lots, all of which are quite good, and even outside there are places where snacks are sold. The coconut frozen here is good, but the price is relatively expensive, 501. As a toll-paying attraction, the ticket here is 60 baht per person, and the joint ticket is 255 baht.
Palmahatai Temple, also known as Dayi Temple, is one of the earliest Khmer-style pagodas built in the city. Fire separates the head of the Buddha. A banyan tree grows next to the head of the Buddha on the ground. A spreading and strong root gently holds the head of the Buddha. With the growth of the big tree, the head of the Buddha gradually grows taller. The tree and the head of the Buddha merge into one and cannot be separated.
Participating in the one-day tour of Dacheng, I feel very shocked. This is the historical relic left by Myanmar when it attacked Thailand. It is a pity to marvel at the destruction of so many Buddhist pagodas and statues in the war. The most amazing thing is the Buddha statue wrapped in the banyan trunk. The tour guide reminds us that we must squat down when taking pictures, not be higher than the Buddha statue, otherwise it is disrespectful. It's a good idea to take a one-day tour, so that you can understand the historical allusions and save yourself the trouble of riding! Super value!
Palmahatai Temple was built during Borom Rachathirat I 1370-1388. Its main pagoda was about 40 meters high. It was one of the earliest Khmer-style pagodas built in the city, but now there is only a base at the bottom. From the pagoda around it, you can see the trace decorated with mortar at that time. Palmahatai Temple was built more than 600 years ago. It has the earliest Khmer-style pagoda built in the big city. Several relatively intact statues of Buddha and many fragmented Buddha statues are preserved around the pagoda.
