Under the steep cliff near a mysterious cave, a temple is lying there peacefully like an old man seating there enjoying the breeze while thinking over the past. Water from the mountain stream splashes all year round just like scattering flowers (in ancient Chinese, the word "flower" is the same as "hua")and thus the temple got its name" Huayan Temple".
With designs of traditional garden styles, this magnificent temple consists of three parts, namely the Huayan Cave, the Reception Hall and The Imposing Sakyamuni Hall, all of which are the brick-wooden architectures. Inside, statues of the Buddha of various postures are sculptured in jade, stone, wood, clay and bronze, which are one of the most shinning parts of Huayan Temple.
In addition, the most impressive sceneries including the eight scenes of "Moonlight on the Pond", "Soughing Pines on the Paling Hill", "Evening Bell from the Temple", "Night Rain in the Trees", "Verdant Twin Peaks", "Rosy Glows on the Winding Stream Water", "White Snow on the Cliff", and" Sounds by Fishes in old Cave " are the must visit sites.
It has witnessed changes of centuries, but nobody can tell exactly how long it is. Maybe you can discover something new here.
