Top Ten Historical Landscape of Pu’er — Jinggu Buddhist Temple Complex

(People's Daily Online)    13:34, September 20, 2018

Pu’er Jinggu Buddhist Temple Complex is a Theravada Buddhism Monastery of the Dai nationality. Simple, elegant and precious, each building is comprised of a gate, an ordination hall, a dormitory, an audience hall and a kitchen.

The walls of the audience halls are decorated with lattice windows. The woodcarving on the windows and wood walls are exquisite, the pictures on the pillars and ceilings delicate and lifelike. The relief sculpture on each footstone of the temples embodies a touching Buddhist story or a folk tale of the Dai people. The flowers, plants, insects and birds on the sculptures are closely bound up to the local people’s daily life and production for a long history.
