Meiling Road is a gathering place for temples in Hangzhou. In the past, there were too many pilgrims and the road was very congested. Sometimes police had to be dispatched to direct traffic. People are very quiet today. Not far from Meijiawu past the archway in the depths of Baiyun, there is a parking lot with only 6 parking spaces on the side of the road, only people who are destined can park.
The entrance to Shangtianzhu is next to the stone with the words “Faxi Talking Temple” written on the opposite side of the parking lot. Go deep for 5 minutes and you will arrive at the Shangtianzhu Faxi Temple, which is the first inspiration for Guanyin, but unfortunately the door of the temple is closed.
Follow the signs to the Tianzhu You Trail for 10 minutes to get to the Fajing Temple in Zhongtianzhu. There are few pedestrians on the road. There is only one big monk who got up early and walked around the city. Kongliu’s “Nanwu’s past, the righteous Faming Tathagata, and the former Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva” was meditating on the wall facing the closed gate of the Fajing Temple.
Continue along the Tianzhu Tour Trail, pass through a pub and teahouse, and then arrive at the Three-day Zhu Fajing Temple. The decoration of the gate of the Fajing Temple is far less luxurious and luxurious than the Dharma, because a group of nuns recite the scriptures here. As usual, the gate of Fajing Temple is also closed.
Going forward from Santianzhu are the three Feilaifeng Temples, Lingyin Temple, Yongfu Temple and Taoguang Temple, which are surrounded by incense all year round.
The gate of Lingyin Temple is facing the statue of Feilai Peak. It has an excellent geographical location. Coupled with the blessing of Jigong, the incense is usually the most prosperous in the temple complex of West Lake. It’s a pity that the door is closed today. The Hangzhou people insisted on calling it Lingyin Temple instead of Yunlin Temple, which already made Kangxi annoyed. He closed the door this time, I guess he was even more angry.
Walking along the outer wall of Lingyin Temple to the scenic spot for 5 minutes is Yongfu Temple. The gate of Yongfu Temple, with its gate closed, hangs a plaque with the Qianlong imperial inscription “Futian Flower Rain”. This temple was once favored by the emperor.
The Taoguang Temple in Chaoyuwu, built on the mountainside of the North Peak, is rarely visited by people on weekdays. Today, the mountain gate is closed, and there is no one there. During special periods, although Faxi Temple, Fajing Temple, Fajing Temple, Lingyin Temple, Yongfu Temple, and Taoguang Temple are all closed, it is impossible to enter the temple to visit. Fortunately, the road connecting the temples is much quieter than usual. Calm down and enjoy the scenery, shops, sculptures and sketches along the way.

The owner of the Xijian Tea House must be fond of calligraphy. The guise and price list are all written with brushes.
The “One Moment” teahouse is simple and elegant. I have been in it for a while. Because the tea is too expensive, it is very quiet.

Master Xuanzang, who studied scriptures in the west, has a gentle and elegant face, a reserved and pious demeanor, a cassock hanging down his sleeves and his hands clasped together. He is very compassionate and generous. It is recommended that all history textbooks choose this sculpture as the image photo of Tang monks.
