🇮🇹 Monte Fanjingshan, New Golden Summit, Tongren, Guizhou Province, Cina. Il monte Fanjingshan è una montagna sacra del buddismo cinese considerata come il luogo dove si può raggiungere l'illuminazione spirituale. Numerosi templi sono stati costruiti su questa altura a partire dalla dinastia Tong, dopo che Hou Hongren costruì la strada Zangke, nel 639 d.C., la quale facilitò i trasporti nella zona montuosa. Altri templi furono costruiti durante le successive dinastie Song, Yuan, Ming e Qin. Solo alcuni di questi templi esistono ancora. Due di questi templi, il tempio di Buddha e di Maitreya, sono stati costruiti sulla cima di una roccia solitaria, a forma di due colonne, conosciuta come New Golden Summit, che si eleva a più di 100 metri sopra la cima della montagna circostante. 🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 🇬🇧 Mount Fanjingshan, New Golden Summit, Tongren, Guizhou Province, China.

Other temples were built during the subsequent Song, Yuan, Ming and Qin dynasties. Only some of these temples still exist. Two of these temples, the temple of Buddha and Maitreya, were built on top of a solitary rock, in the shape of two columns, known as the New Golden Summit, which rises more than 100 meters above the top of the surrounding mountain. 🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 📹 Video by @hannespeer 🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸 #cina #china #tongren #guizhouprovence #mountfanjingshan #fanjingshan #sacredmountain #buddhism #travel #chinesebuddhism #buddismo #buddha #maitreya #religion #culture #history #travelling #temple #asia #asianart #art #antiqua_archeologia #archeology #heritage #newgoldensummit
