Peaceful Trip to Shaoguan

 2016-07-14    CiCi    Tours    Shaoguan    1412  

Situated in the north of Guangdong Province and bordering to Hunan Province, Jiangxi Province and Guangxi Province, Shaoguan is the center of political, economic, transportation and culture in the north area of Guangdong. With its unique location and long history, Shaoguan also is listed as a leading city in the development planning of Guangdong. Shaoguan, a famous historical and cultural city, is well-known for its amazing landscape, especially Danxia Mountain. But there are also many other beautiful sceneries, such as Yunmen Temple, Yunmenxia Drifting Scenic Area and Bibei Ethnic Village.

Located at the foot of Ciyun Peak, 6km in the north of Ruyuan county, Yunmen Temple is also named Yunmen Mountain Dajue Buddha Temple. It was built in 923 by Wenyan Buddhist monk, who is Liuzu Huineng's ninth generation disciple. (Liuzu Huineng is the primogenitor of Yunmen sect). Yunmen Temple is the birthplace of Yunmen sect, which is one of the five sects of China's Buddha. It was regarded as one of China's key monasteries by the State Council in 1983. Covering an area of 12,000 square meters, the building style of the temple is magnific, refined and quiet. The temple has attracted many pilgrims visitors.

During the super hot summer, we needed some peaceful places for relaxing. What a good choice to get to enjoy these three wonderful sites! So let‘s go! go! go!
