The Dragon Boat Festival holiday is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year. I decided to relax, stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and chose Leshan Giant Buddha, a famous tourist attraction. Early in the morning, I carried my bag on my back and embarked on this magical journey with a yearning for nature and history.
Leshan Giant Buddha is located at the foot of Mount Emei in Leshan City, Sichuan Province. It is one of the masterpieces of ancient Chinese grotto art and the largest stone Buddha statue in the world. When I first saw the Leshan Giant Buddha, I was shocked by its greatness and magnificence. The Buddha statue is solemn, standing on the cliff, as if guarding the whole city. I climbed the steep stone steps step by step, and my heart was full of awe and joy.
During the climb, I couldn’t help but immerse myself in the long river of history. The Leshan Giant Buddha was built in the Tang Dynasty. After hundreds of years of arduous construction, it has condensed the painstaking efforts and wisdom of countless workers. The Buddha statue is 71 meters high, the face is kind, the details are lifelike, and every inch shows the exquisite skills of the craftsmen. Standing at the foot of the Buddha statue, I felt the heritage and power of traditional culture, and I was deeply shocked by human creativity.
In addition to the Leshan Giant Buddha, I also visited the surrounding scenic spots. Mount Emei, temples near Leshan Giant Buddha, caves, etc., all of which make me linger. Mount Emei is known as a famous Buddhist mountain in China. The peaks are steep and the scenery is beautiful. When you climb to the top of the mountain, you can overlook the green under the mountain, and you will feel relaxed and happy. The incense in the temple was filled, and the believers prayed devoutly, which made me feel the power of tranquility and piety. And the journey of exploring the cave made me even more amazed. Those strange underground landscapes made me feel as if I had entered a mysterious world.
In addition to the natural scenery, Leshan’s cuisine is also a highlight. I tasted local snacks, such as bean curd noodles, Leshan hot pot, etc. The taste was delicious and the aftertaste was endless. Each dish contains the enthusiasm of the Sichuan people and the unique pursuit of food.
The trip during the Dragon Boat Festival holiday gave me a lot of gains. I not only experienced the magnificence and magnificence of nature, but also felt the charm of history and culture. The tour of Leshan Giant Buddha and the surrounding attractions gave me a deeper understanding of Chinese traditional culture, and stimulated my desire to explore history and art.
Back home, I still recall this journey with lingering fear. I hope that one day I can set foot on the land of Leshan Giant Buddha again and meet this thousand-year-old city again.
