The first Buddhist temple that we visited in China was located in the small village of Baidu in Guangdong province. Despite the fact that it was very small, we still were very impressed by all the known and unknown deities and saints of all kinds. Later on, in our travels we have visited numerous sacred sites and temples which were operating or abandoned. Some of them unfortunately have absolutely lost their spirit and work for the benefit of tourism. Still we have encountered many that have still not lost it.
One of these definitely is and always will be for us the Thousand Buddha Temple of the convent in the city of Meizhou. In a previous post we have talked about how we were able to visit the workshop which operates under the supervision of the convent. Now we invite you to take a look at the temple itself, as well as its immortal gardens and its main attraction – the pagoda which hides the relic of the convent the ancient Thousand Buddha column.
As long as I can remember our group of friends had a tradition: the girls want to go to the sea and the guys to the mountains. We would normally find a compromise in this kind of situations but not this time- we headed for the ocean!
