 Nanmenxia Scenic Spot

Nanmenxia Scenic Spot is located 15km away to the northwest of Huzhu County, Qinghai Province, 45km away from the provincial capital Xi'ning. The scenic spot is mainly composed of Nanmenxia Reservoir and Quezang Temple. Construction of the reservoir was started in 1973 and completed in 1985, lasting for 12 years, with the capacity of 18 million m3 water. It is a scenic spot integrating travel, leisure, sightseeing and vacation. The scenery around the reservoir is really beautiful. The two mountains in the east and the west stand face to face, and bold cliffs are steep and magnificent. At the gateway, a grand and spectacular arch bridge is erected above the East Trunk Canal. Quezang Temple was set up by the 1st Quezang Nanjie Banjue in the 6th year of Shunzhi reign in the Qing Dynasty (1649 AD). It was damaged because of the Lob Tsangdanjin event in the first year of Yongzheng reign in the Qing Dynasty and rebuilt later. In 1985, there were more than 150 monks permanently residing in the temple. There are large and small scripture halls and the Thousand Buddha Hall, as well as magnificent "rajangs" (residences of living Buddhas) of Quezang, Zhangjia, Saichi, Guihua, Lianhua, Aqun, Xiari etc. The main building – Sakya Thousand Buddha Hall has three stories with 99 rooms. The Exotoric Buddhism Institute and Kalachakra Institute in the temple adopt Drepung Monastery's Guomang Dratsang curriculum and set up Quezang Kangcun of the temple in Dratsang. At present, the abbot of the temple is the 6th living Buddha – Luosangdan Beiwangxiu.
