Reviews about Yonghe Temple

沃洛格达福康安

5/5
Reviewed on 23 Feb 2018

May all the good things in the world come to Yonghe Palace as promised. May Buddha Youping walk out of Wanfu Pavilion safely. In the eastern chamber is the Buddha Tower. There is a statue of Sakyamuni Buddha with a bronze fetus named "Jundan Buddha". Behind the Buddha there is an enclosure-like backlight, which is carefully carved from precious golden Nanmu. It is known as one of the "three unique" of Yonghe Palace because of its exquisite and exquisite skills. The niche goes directly from the ground to the roof of the building. It stands high and low in two rooms with three floors inside and outside. At sunset, the Buddha stands in solemn silence, and the brass mirror behind the head is embedded in the enclosure-like backlight. This backlight centers on the brass mirror and spreads around it, forming a circle along the enclosure, reflecting with the lantern and illuminating the Buddhist Hall. The niche is supported by two golden dragon pillars with golden skin on the beams. There are 99 dragons carved around it. Some of them hold their heads high and explore their claws. Some of them stand upright and scream out. The Buddha statue in the niche is made of imitation wood and copper. The water-print clothes of Buddha statues are naturally smooth. It is said that the disciples of Sakyamuni Buddha, in order to keep the image of Buddha in the world forever but dare not look directly, had to ask the painter to draw the image of Buddha according to the shadow in the water, so the image of Buddha was drawn together with the water-print. The statues of later generations can only be based on this painting, "according to Buddha" hence the name.
