great wild goose pagoda

RE: great wild goose pagoda

by stivgross

I got this from chinatravelguide.com :

"As for the reason why it is called Big Wild Goose Pagoda, there is a legend. According to ancient stories of Buddhists, there were two branches, for one of which eating meat was not a taboo. One day, they couldn't find meat to buy. Upon seeing a group of big wild geese flying by, a monk said to himself: 'Today we have no meat. I hope the merciful Bodhisattva will give us some.' At that very moment, the leading wild goose broke its wings and fell to the ground. All the monks were startled and believed that Bodhisattva showed his spirit to order them to be more pious. They established a pagoda where the wild goose fell and stopped eating meat. Hence it got the name 'Big Wild Goose Pagoda'."



Travel Tips for Xi'an

You are in pure nature-the tranquil village

by jasmine_ding

Old Country Seat is located in Qinling Mountain, 160 kilometers from Xi'an. Only those who have adventure spirit, unique taste and necessary endurance can see its beauty.

I walked over 40 kilometers in the mountains, climbing up, ascent and dscent in two days to visit there. Though it was so cold after sunset, I was glad I could sleep on the bed in farmhouse. I suffered sun, snow and heavy rain on the journey, at last I was almost wet.

Thanks for my friend, he offered me a spare dry clothing.

But, all difficulties are nothing, compared with the views, the feelings.

I put the pics about it in the travelogues, please see it, you'll like it.

high class real good food

by chihiro75 about Bell Tower

The main restaurant of the Bell Tower Hotel is actually outside the hotel building, a rather exclusive posh place, with private rooms, but the food is excellent. It's not exactly local, more a mix of different Chinese cuisines, but definitely high quality. Worth the expense for high power dining.

Tang Dynasty Show

by SPW

While I am not a particular fan of 'cultural presentations', this Show was excellent entertainment visually, musically and dramatically.
This most professional show happens twice nightly and is designed to recreate the cultural life of the Tang Dynasty(618-907 AD) in Xi'an which was rich and at the crossroads of civilization.

visit The Xiaoyan (Small Wild Goose) Pagoda
This is a square structure made of brick in the period between 707 – 709. It is 43 metres high and nearly 12 metres long at its base. The Pagoda is located in the Jianfu Temple, it is smaller than the Dayan (Big Wild Goose) Pagoda but is still an important historical site. The Jianfu Temple was built in 684 by Empress Gao Zong of the Tang Dynasty

Daciensi - Temple of Great Benefaction

by mke1963

The Big Wild Goose Pagoda is the best known structure inside the Daciensi.
The temple was built in 648, during the reign of Emperor Taizong, by Li Zhi, the heir aparent, who wanted to honour his mother. One of the earliest monks there was Xuan Zhuang, who established the Cien sect of Buddhism here as the first home in China of Mahayana Buddhism. The Cien sect is also known as the Faxiang or Weishi sect. The temple though was not actually called Daciensi until eight years later, when Emperoro Gaozong came to power.
Only the western part of the temple remains, as the rest was destroyed at the end of the Tang Dynasty, and the buildings are mainly Qing. In recent years, however, an influx of money, presumably from benefactors in Taiwan, has resulted in some fine new buildings at the north end of the temple.
In its time though, the temple was the pre-eminent temple in China, as Xuan Zhuang was so well-known.
The collection of gilded buddhas in the daxiongbaodian is particularly impressive, dating from 1466 during the Ming Dynasty.
The temple complex is spacious and welcoming, and more relaxing than many in other cities. It is a pity that the temple has been symbolically relegated to the overwhelming presence of its pagoda, but the recent construction, so often a disaster in China, is in this case likely to highlight the role and importance of the Daciensi.
