I løpet av årene har SWMBO og jeg vært noen ganger til dette tempelet som ligger i BaiYun Shan Park. Som templene går, er det ikke stort eller spektakulært, men det er et veldig fint arbeidende buddhistisk tempel. For å komme til templet vi gikk til hovedveien (DaJingZhong Road) og fanget # 233-bussen, faktisk går de fleste busser fra busstoppet til BaiYun Mountain. Den vanlige 2 yuan hver bilpris ble redusert til 1. 2 yuan på grunn av vår bruk av busser og metro i de siste 30 dagene. Vi bruker hver et reisekort som er viktig for å gå rundt GuangZhou. Merk, på busser er ingen endring, men du kan bruke WeChat til å betale ved å skanne QR-koden. Jeg må prøve denne dagen. Reisekort er enklere og mye raskere (viktig når du kommer på buss) skjønt. Vi dro av bussen ved BaiYun Ropeway stopp, og gikk deretter tilbake langs veien i ca 50 meter. For øyeblikket er det ganske kaotisk i området foran parken, da en tunnelbanestasjon bygges for å betjene både BaiYun og LuHu parkene. For å komme til BaiYun park måtte vi krysse den travle hovedveien som skiller Bai Yum Park og Lu Hu Park, heldigvis er det en tunnel under veien, men du må søke trappen ned til den. Se etter det blå tegnet med en pil nedover. Det er ikke logget på engelsk. Vi gikk gjennom tunnelen og fortsatte å gå på høyre side av veien i omtrent en kilometer eller så til hovedporten til parken. Det er mange boder og butikker på vei til markedet. Jeg anbefalte SWMBO å handle på vei tilbake da hun ikke behøvde å bære ting, men hun var ganske bekymret for at det ville være noe igjen da vi kom tilbake. Heldigvis var det, eller jeg ville aldri vært tilgitt! Inngangen til parken er 5, men bare 2. 5 for de i alderen 60 og 65 år, og gratis for de over 65 år. Du må presentere passet ditt for å få konsesjonen. Det er toaletter ved siden av inngangen. En gang gjennom svingestilen presenteres du med en lang trapp på høyre eller en sti på venstre side. Vi tok banen som det var en kokende varm dag. Det spiller ingen rolle hva du tar, da de begge slutter etter et par hundre meter på veien til toppmøtet. Det er tegn på engelsk for NengRen-tempelet. Vi trudged opp veien i ca 30 minutter stopper en gang for å sitte på en benk for å oppdatere oss med skiver og pære og fersken som SWMBO hadde omtenksom brakt inn i ryggsekken. Inngangen til templet er til venstre når du klatrer på veien, det er et par små elefant statuer som beskytter buen. På høyre side av buen er et engelsk informasjonstavle om templet. Vær oppmerksom på at det er mange trinn i templet. Vi klatret trinnene til bassenget der det er fisk, skilpadder, ender, gjess og sporadisk vannrotte. Selvfølgelig kastet jeg fisken litt av fisken - matballer jeg holder i mannen min - bag. Eendene nyter brødet en annen besøkende kaster. Ikke bli overrasket hvis du er accosted av duer og kyllinger, dette er et populært sted for å bli matet av besøkende. Fremover og oppover gikk vi forbi bassenget, stoppet jeg og leste Head Abbots informasjonsbrett, så var det flere skritt og under anterbue og inn i templet som var riktig for den forsterkede lyden av munkens chanting. Mens SWMBO kjøpte joss-pinner klatret jeg flere skritt for å få et glimt av chanting munkene. Det hørtes ut som om det var dusinvis av dem, men det var bare seks. Det er utrolig hvilken effekt jeg kan ha på lydkonsollen på lydanlegget. Uansett, mens SWMBO tilbød sine buddhistiske bønner, vandret jeg rundt å klikke unna med min Pentax. Som jeg sa før, er det ikke et stort tempel, men flere blir bygget på baksiden. Faktisk er det små bygningsarbeid over alt, ikke påtrengende, men du legger merke til dem. Det er et fungerende tempel, så det er sovesaler etc. for munkene. Det er et par boder som selger buddhistiske nødvendigheter, pyntegjenstander og knick-knacks for besøkende. Som alltid se opp. Det er synd at drager på gavlen - endene er nettet over, men malingarbeidet på fasongbordene er fargerikt. Vi slapp av lejonet godt og spiste det siste av pære- og ferskenskiver og drakk te før vi vendte oss nedover trappene og ut av templet, pauser for å gi fisken og ender den siste av mine fiskekuler. På vei nedover veien måtte vi ligge i noen minutter på grunn av en tordenvær, men en uventet subtropisk hendelse i august. Så var det kjøpesentre og gjennom markedet der SWMBO kjøpte frukt. Vi fanget buss nr. 24 fra den flotte nye busstasjonen. Dette droppet oss i nærheten av Chang's Cusine hvor vi likte dimsum og rikelig kopp te for å oppdatere oss selv etter vår ettermiddagstur.

SWMBO and I have walked past the temple at least once a week since I returned to Guangzhou in March. Most of the time the temple has been closed due to ‘covid’, but that didn’t worry us too much as the small pond at the entrance was the object of our devotion because in October 2021 that’s where SWMBO had put our three turtles Brick, Mo and Lazarus as they’d outgrown their tanks.

A bit naughty of her as you’re not supposed to put your turtles or fish there but it’s a lovely place for them, and besides every few days SWMBO would go and feed all the turtles and fish. Of course, the pigeons and cats that frequent the entrance would also be fed.

Anyway, yesterday’s mid-day weather forecast was dry between showers, so we headed off by taxi to the main gate of Bai Yun Mountain (TA reviewed). The main gate is a short walk up the road from YunTai Gardens (TA reviewed).

After scanning the park’s location app, and then it was through the barrier using facial recognition we were in the park. We go to the park often, so we have an annual ‘ticket’ which is facial recognition.

We strolled up the hill for a few metres and bought 10¥ bus tickets to take us up to the temple. A few minutes wait and we were aboard one of the little electric buggies that run throughout the park.

A few minutes later we were at the temple’s entrance. SWBO had packed a bag to with a jar with a mixture of turtle food, dried shrimps, dried bread worms and fish food for the pond life, a steamed corn cob for the pigeons, and jar of cat food for the temple’s guardians.

There are lots of red-eared sliders in the main pond along with the fish but I’m sure Brick and Lazarus are amongst them, while the much smaller tribe of common pond turtles have decamped to the smaller and shallower pond at the rear where there’s no fish. When I called ‘Mo’ one turned and looked at me, it was Mo. He got a few extra shrimps.

After all the foods were distributed, we walked up the steps towards the temple.
Note: the temple is not wheelchair friendly and there are many steps.

There is a shop near the entrance for joss sticks and bracelets. There’s another shop on the second level for candles and more expensive necessitates. SWMBO bought candles and joss sticks to say thanks for my return to China, and our continuing good health, safe travel, and fortune.

Not much has changed over the years except there are presently no monks. However, by the main shrines you can now donate with your phone, and your name and amount are listed for all to see your largess.

SWMBO progressed onwards and upwards visiting saying a prayer at each shrine, I tagged along behind and admired the buildings. The temple is built into the side of the hill which constitutes a mountain in Guangzhou, hence the upwards part of the journey.

Then we wended our way back down and availed ourselves of the clean toilets near the entrance.

Finally, we walked down the road to the main entrance and got a taxi back to our humble abode as it looked like rain. We were right, as down it came just as we entered, and it hasn’t stopped for the last twenty hours
.
As an aside, No.5 expired here at home a few weeks after our visit in 2018. I'm still sad about not putting him in the pond.

Just over a year has passed since our last visit to the temple and our fish have grown much bigger, so much so that No. 5 needs a new home. No. 5 was according the chap in the pet shop such an odd-looking goldfish that nobody wanted it. As I explained to SWMBO, it’s an odd looking goldfish because it’s a cat-fish!

The weather on Monday was decidedly chilly at around 20C, but Tuesday was much warmer at 28C so we headed to the temple to check out the suitability of its fish pond for No. 5.

We took a taxi to YunTai Gardens (TA reviewed) and then walked up the road passing under the flyover of the ShenHai Express Way, to the main entrance of BaiYun Shan. During the last year, the approach has been ‘landscaped’ with the shacks, market, car-park and detritus replaced by lawns and flowerbeds. Very smart!

Note: there’s a nice bus station opposite the entrance to YunTai Gardens appropriately named YunTai Bus Station. All bus fares are ¥2, and no change is given. I suggest getting a travel card which covers buses, metro and even the tram.

We entered the park, being a regular I’m on their facial recognition data-base, so I just present my ugly mug at the barrier where its scanned and then it opens and lets me through. For visitors you’ll have to buy a ticket, usually ¥5.

Note: Have your passport handy just in case they want to check it. If you’re on the wrong side of 60, point at the dob and ask for a half-price ticket. Every little helps!

Once in the park we strolled up the paths by the PuGu stream and road to the temple. The road is easier, but the paths are more interesting and picturesque despite all the steps. The path merges with the road about 50 metres from the temple entrance.

There’s no entrance fee or id check for the temple so we just wandered in under the arch. The two characters on the arch read, from right to left fo jing, or Buddhist Place.

There’s a small pond next to the arch and we checked for No. 5 but it is far too small with only inhabited by a few turtles and small fish.
Then we climbed the steps to the big pond which is very suitable for No. 5. I’m sure he’d (I say he, but I’m not too sure) like it here even though I’m sure he wouldn’t be fed twice a day but he’d could swim fast and have more friends than a couple of boring goldfish (Oddjob and Sunday) and a couple of black plecos (Ronnie and Reggie) who keep to themselves.

As I hung around by the pond and watched the fish and turtles, SWMBO carried on and up towards the temple to pay her respects. I caught her up as she was buying the necessary joss-sticks.

While she used the joss-sticks I wandered around and climbed the steps to the highest part of the temple. They’re still building an extension at the highest part, rather slow for China but then again, I suppose everything has to be carried from the temple entrance.

I didn’t think much had changed since last year. Surprisingly I didn’t see or hear any monks.

After an hour we meandered down and again checked out the big pond and reckoned that it was suitable for No. 5 and maybe even in time for our three small turtles. Mission accomplished!

We then set-off down the road and luckily got a taxi by the park’s entrance back to our apartment where our hungry menagerie of one cat, five fish and three turtles were demanding their evening meals.

这个寺庙要单独付钱入场。并不是很大,依山而建。里面的过道很深。由于在半山腰上,要走上大殿阶梯很长。有一个水池,养了很多锦鲤。

Over the years, SWMBO and I have been a few times to this temple which is in BaiYun Shan Park. As temples go, it’s not big or spectacular but it’s a very nice working Buddhist temple.

To get to the temple we walked to the main road (DaJingZhong Road) and caught the #233 bus, in fact most buses from the bus stop go to BaiYun Mountain. The usual 2 Yuan each fare was reduced to 1.2 Yuan because of our use of buses and the metro in the last 30 days. We each use a travel card which is essential for going around GuangZhou.

Note, on buses no change is given but you can use WeChat to pay by scanning your QR code. I must try this one day. Travel cards are easier and much quicker (important when getting on a bus) though.

We got off the bus at the BaiYun Ropeway stop, and then walked back along the road for about 50 metres. At the moment, it’s all rather chaotic in the area in front of the park as a metro station is being built to serve both BaiYun and LuHu parks.

To get to BaiYun park we had to cross the busy main road that separates Bai Yum Park and Lu Hu Park, luckily there’s a tunnel under the road but you have to search for the stairs down to it. Look for the blue sign with a downward pointing arrow. it’s not signed in English. We walked through the tunnel and just kept walking on the right-hand side of the road for about a kilometer or so to the main gate of the park.

There’s a many stalls and shops on the way to the market. I advised SWMBO to shop on the way back then she didn’t have to carry the stuff, but she was rather worried that there would be anything left when we returned. Thankfully there was, or I’d have never been forgiven!

Entrance to the park is ¥5, but only ¥2.5 for those aged between 60 and 65, and free for those over 65. You’ll need present your passport to get the concession.

There are toilets next to the entrance. Once through the turnstile you are presented with a long flight of stairs on your right or a path on you left. We took the path as it was a boiling hot day. It really doesn’t matter which you take, as they both end after a couple of hundred metres on the road to the summit.

There are signs in English for the NengRen temple. We trudged up the road for about 30 minutes stopping once to sit on a bench to refresh ourselves with slices and pear and peach which SWMBO had thoughtfully brought in her backpack.

The entrance to the temple is on the left as you climb the road, there are a couple of small elephant statues guarding the arch. On the right of the arch is an English information board about the temple.

Be aware there are lots of steps in the temple. We climbed the steps to the pool where there are fish, turtles, ducks, geese and the occasional water rat. Of course, I threw the fish some of the fish-food balls I keep in my man-bag. The ducks were enjoying the bread another visitor was throwing. Don’t be surprised if you’re accosted by pigeons and chickens, this is a popular place for them to be fed by visitors.

Onwards and upwards we went past the pool, I stopped and read the Head Abbot’s information board, then it was more steps and under anther arch and into the temple proper to the amplified sound of monk’s chanting. While SWMBO bought joss-sticks I climbed more steps to get a glimpse of the chanting monks. It sounded like there were dozens of them but there were only six. It’s amazing the effect I bit of reverb on the sound system can have.

Anyway, while SWMBO offered her Buddhist prayers I wandered around clicking away with my Pentax. As I said before, it isn’t a big temple but more is being built at the back. In fact there are small building works all over the place, not intrusive but you notice them. It’s a working temple so there are dormitories etc. for the monks.
There’s a couple of stalls selling Buddhist essentials, trinkets and knick-knacks for visitors.

As ever look up. It’s a pity the dragons on the gable-ends are netted over but the paint work on the facia boards is colourful.

We relaxed by the lion well and ate the last of the pear and peach slices and drank tea before wending our way down the steps and out of the temple, pausing to give the fish and ducks the last of my fish-balls. On the way down the road, we had to shelter for a few minutes because of a passing thunderstorm but a not unexpected sub-tropical event in August.

Then it was the shopping stalls and through the market where SWMBO bought fruit. We caught the #24 bus from the very nice new bus station. This dropped us off near Chang’s Cusine where we enjoyed dimsum and copious cups of tea to refresh ourselves after our afternoon excursion.

每当空闲之余都会爬白云山,这里有山有水,坐着缆车观光美景,累了饿了还可以去茶楼喝茶。闲情漫步来到水库还可以看钓鱼。空气清新,心旷神怡,偶尔来这里露营,观日出看花卉美景一流。

We had seen many temples in China on our trip but Nengren Temple in the mountains was extremely special. Surrounded my tall, green trees and nature, even hundreds of tortoises and fish in the pond. Of course tortoises are lucky for the Chinese so there's many of them. 100% worth visiting when in Guangzhou, it will blow any other temple you have seen in China out of the water

上山坡才能看到主庙,前面有个大池子里买有很多肥大的鱼乌龟和好多只鸭子,还有两只在打架,非常自然美好的精致,往上走是前殿和大殿因地势而建不太大,旁边的石阶上还有只大白兔在吃游人给的点心,人与自然和谐共生。

能仁寺就在白云山上,环境秀丽安静。每次爬白云山就会到这里拜拜,也会带一些乌龟到放生池放生,积积德。这里听说挺灵的,烧上香,为家人祈福平安。
