Description

Huayan Temple is a Buddhist temple, lying at the foot of Dalaoshan (Big & Old Mountain) in the west of Chongqing. There is a cave in the mountain cliff, and around the cave a temple was built. Water from the mountain stream splashes all year round just like scattering flowers (in ancient Chinese, the word "flower" is the same as "hua") and thus the temple got its name" Huayan Temple" The grandeur and fame of the temple are composed of three parts: the Huayan Cave, the Reception Hall and The Imposing Sakyamuni Hall. The halls and the houses are solemn and the Buddist figures are stately and respectful. It is one of the most renowned temples in Sichuan.
