西游记（13）：乡城桑披寺 ｜ Journey to the West (13): xiangcheng Sangpi Temple
After the terrible mountain road, we decided to worship in the temple the next day. Xiangcheng Sangpi Temple is located in the northwest corner of Xiangcheng. The Sangpi Temple means a temple that is so prosperous . It is one of the temples of the Tibetan Xiadeng temple, and it is also known as the “Xiadeng Sangpi Luobuling”. The temple has a majestic appearance and solemn atmosphere. It focuses on the artistic accomplishments of the Tibetan people in architecture, decoration, sculpture and painting.
We went to the new temple of Sangpi Temple, which was built in 1996. It is said that the craftsmen of the New Temple did not specially design an architectural drawing, nor did they have a sketch for reference. It relied entirely on the local talents to create and create according to their experience. It is a miracle in the history of architecture.
The main hall of the temple is a four-storey, staggered building covering an area of more than 2,000 square meters. It is spectacular and magnificent from the outside.
When we went, the temple was very deserted. Only lamas and some construction workers have no visitors at all. The temple dedicated to the gods is not allowed to shoot, but the frescoes in the outer hall have made us full of harvest.

The new temple is located on the majestic Bam mountainside, standing in the new temple, and you can see the panoramic view of the town of Sanpi. The white houses are the symbols of the townships. They are different from the deep red and dark colors of the houses in other parts of the Ganzi area. The village houses in the townships are all white, surrounded by valleys and terraces, and are particularly eye-catching.
随手拍了个寺庙简介，有兴趣的可以看下。I took a picture of the temple and I was interested to see it.
Finally, let our photographer reveal a back, hahaha.
