打扪藏传佛院 Tibetan Temple in Tambun

位于打扪的藏传佛院叫心意佛院,远远就能瞧见那十三层高的佛塔与立于山边的巨型站佛。佛院初建于1976年,后来扩建,成了现在的模样。因是藏传佛院,所以不难发觉西藏色彩,像转经轮和彩色经幡等等。只是,佛院建筑即有汉化影子,也有本土色彩,从外观来看,并不凸显为藏传佛院。

The Tibetan temple in Tambun is called Enlightened Heart Buddhist Temple. Surrounding the temple are the iconic 13-storey pagoda and a large standing Buddha Statue. 689 more words
