Introduction

The Iron Statue Temple is located in the southern suburb of Chengdu High-tech Zone. In the eighteenth year of Wanli in the Ming Dynasty (1590 AD), the iron-cast Sakyamuni Buddha statue was dug out of the ground. Because the temple was built for worship, it was named after the iron statue. It was rebuilt several times in the sixth year of Apocalypse (1626 AD) and the fourth year of Qianlong (1739 AD). In the 1940s, after the patriotic eminent monk Nenghai entered Tibet to study the Fa, it was established as the only nun dojo among the seven Vajra dojos in the Han region (referred to as the Han region). The plaque on the gate of the Tiexiang Temple was inscribed by Zhao Puchu, president of the Buddhist Association of China. The halls in the courtyard are majestic, the vegetation is lush, and the houses are just like, fresh and quiet, peaceful and peaceful. The entire building is both independent and integrated. As soon as you enter the mountain gate, you can see the majestic Guanyin Hall. In the hall, there is a sympathetic and solemn Guanyin Bodhisattva seated in golden nanmu. Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva saves suffering and is deeply admired by all living beings in the world. The second major palace is a Ming Dynasty building, which preserves the complicated window grilles. Chengdu went through the war in the late Ming Dynasty, and there were very few preserved temples in the Ming Dynasty, which is the only fruit left. The Buddha statue in the treasure hall is dominated by cast iron Sakyamuni, the left is Manjushri, holding scriptures and wisdom sword, and the right is Maitreya Bodhisattva, holding a vase and Dharma wheel. Tibetan Buddhism takes Manjushri as the head of the Shenguan (empty sect) inheritance, and Maitreya Bodhisattva as the head of the Guangxing (you sect) inheritance, with the auxiliary wing of Sakyamuni, called the two carts, representing the generation of Sakyamuni. time to teach. This kind of statue layout is also not found in Han temples. Behind the Mahavira Hall is the Tibetan Scripture Building, with a glazed tile roof and a Falun double deer as the ridge, imitating the Tibetan architectural style. Later, Dajue Hall, Putong Pagoda and Guanyin Pavilion were gradually built.
