These Two Buddhist Temples Suspended Between The Earth And The Sky Are The Perfect Place To Find Yourself.

Imagine yourself suspended on a craggy rocky outcrop over 2,300 meters above sea level, with a carpet of clouds beneath your feet and an atmosphere so incredible it almost seems unreal. We are not describing a scene from a dream, but the reality of a place that really exists and is located in China, in the Mount Fanjing Nature Reserve, or Fanjingshan , a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Here, in the province of Guizhou, there are two places sacred to Buddhism that leave you speechless with emotion .

#1

These are the two temples built on a steep, lonely rock that resembles a human thumb and which, at its top, houses the structures dedicated to Maitreya Buddha, also known as the bodhimanda (“places of enlightenment”) . They are believed to have been built during the Tang Dynasty, between the 7th and 10th centuries.

One glance is enough to realize how incredible this place is, made even more spectacular by the narrow gorge that separates the two temples, connected by a suspension bridge .

#3

The spur rises more than 100 meters above the surrounding mountains, and to reach its summit you have to follow a path that winds through a steep climb of almost 9,000 steps. A remarkably tiring route, but quite rewarded by the spectacle once you reach the top.

#4

It is impressive that two such large structures, centuries and centuries ago, were built in this very place. There is no doubt that reaching the two wonderful temples is not only a hiking test but also a fabulous mystical experience .

#5

From up there, it seems to us to reach the gates of heaven , immersed in a magical and perfectly preserved environment, which allows us to find a primordial contact with nature and, above all, with ourselves.
