CHI LIN NUNNERY 志蓮淨苑

Vintage plate 2018

This "mountain temple" (as indicated by the characters above the door) built in 2000 reflects religious architecture under the Tang Dynasty (th-century). Buddhism was at its peak in China. The building is entirely wooden. The épis of its fin-shaped roof symbolize the dragon in the water and protect the potential fire site. The first Buddha statue is accompanied by one of its protectors, Vanda, which controls wind, rain, storm and light. In the second court, the statue on the right represents the head of medicine, the one on the left represents the god of Compassion, one of the most révérées deities by the Chinese. Note the absence of incense sticks in the main chapel housing Buddha and his disciples. The faithful, when entering the temple, must not be decentralized by material objects. This temple, as its name indicates, houses Buddhist bonzesses.

A la sortie du métro Diamond Hill, sur le chemin, visitez donc le NanLian Garden (magnifique) puis, sans sortir du jardin, en empruntant un pont passant au dessus de la rue vous serez dans le temple CHI LIN NUNNERY. L'endroit est calme et mérite une visite.

Temple en bois construit sans un seul clou , endroit très joli et très reposant , très sobre contrastant avec l'environnement immédiat: des gratte ciels !

Pas grand chose à voir, mais c'est très calme et reposant.
Le jardin de Nan Lian juste à coté vaut davantage le détour.

Style épuré mais Temple agréable à visiter. Il y règne, comme il se doit, une atmosphère de paix et de sérénité. Et c'est assez impressionnant de voir ce " petit " temple entouré par des immeubles de 30 étages.
Il y a bien évidement une boutique souvenirs au sous-sol. À associer avec une visite du très beau " Nan Lian Garden " de l'autre côté de la rue où vous pourrez même prendre un repas végétarien dans la pure tradition boudhiste.
