I took a bus to this temple outside Chengdu and got there in less than one hour in a small suburb town named Xindu. I appreciate the monks' effort to preserve the wooden structures and beautiful surroundings and a thick woods behind the monastery. The tower in the middle is said to house the Buddha's relic, not to mention several more pavillions having ancient Buddha statues. I found peace in this place, not to mention meeting devout Buddhists of all ages. Three women were carrying 2 cages of about 30 birds, to set them free in the woods of the forest. I asked to join them in the merit making event, and they said that it must be good karma for a foreigner to join them in this kind act. That was my highlight of the visit, in addition to so much peace in such a special place.
