"I haven't been to Baoguang Temple for a long time. Counting it for about 20 years, today I am taking the children to finish the winter homework. In the afternoon, there are not many people. I checked the health code and the itinerary code at the door. After I bought the ticket (5 yuan), I entered it smoothly. I gave 3 incense, and I still paid a visit to the Bodhisattva.
