The subway is really convenient. Now the subway that is well-connected really makes me feel like I am in the West for a while. I dont feel inconvenient at all. On the 12th line, Longhua Station, Exit 3, is just across the road. It seems to be very large in scale, and it has also undergone many changes. Entering from the side door, the Longhua Temple building is a typical Song Dynasty's gambling seven-chamber system. From the south to the north of the central axis, the Maitreya Temple, the Heavenly King Hall, the Daxiong Hall, and the Three Temples are more serious. The Longhua Tower of Longhua Temple is surrounded and can only be seen from afar. It is a pagoda. It was built in the second year of Song Taiping Xingguo (977). It has a long history and a seven-story octagonal wooden tower. It is about 41 meters high. The architecture of the Song Dynasty is quite unique. The ancient temple with a history of 1.7k years is full of careful walking next time~!
