It is undoubtedly lucky to arrive at the Chong'an Temple in Yixing Lake at dusk. The sunset makes this ancient temple dyed with a warm color, the yellow wall and the red pillar, quiet and solemn. In the distance, it is a gloomy mountain this scene may have been printed in the eyes of the Tang Dynastys Yunyou monks more than 1,000 years ago. It is said that he was taken by the scenery here. The foundation temple, this is the source of the Chong'an Temple. The following legends are even more meaningful. It is said that when the foundation of the Chong'an Temple was laid, it was unearthed as a jade, and its sound was like a pipa. Therefore, the original name of the temple was Yushan Temple. In the years of the Chong'an Temple, the monks here have been quietly chanting Buddhas in the temples of this mountain. The time for the Chong'an Temple to shine is to wait until the early Qing Dynasty, hundreds of years after the temple was built. During the reign of Emperor Kangxi and Yongzheng, the Chong'an Temple was built and the Emperor Qianlong was given the title of "The First Ancestral Temple in the World" and rebuilt. Zen Temple - Legend has it that Qianlongs "born father" Chen Ge has lived here. Compared with many temples that are already too embarrassing, the Yixing Lake Father Chong'an Temple, which does not sell tickets or sell incense sticks, is undoubtedly quiet and closer to the meaning of Zen. At the time of our arrival, there was only one visitor to us in the Chong En Temple surrounded by lush forests. There were one or two monks who walked slowly and looked calm. The warm shade of sunlight casts the shadow of the red wooden pillar obliquely on the yellow wall, except for the occasional bird songs. In this temple with traditional Chinese architecture, it is all silence.
