Hongfa Temple


The temple is built on a series of terraces. The first is a courtyard with the screen wall; next is the gate level, with shops and halls as well. Then the Heavenly Kings Hall with the Happy Buddha, with two surrounding halls. The fourth level has some kind of utility hall, but no worship halls. On the next level is the “Treasure Hall,” or what we would call the Buddha Hall. There are four side-halls here. Finally, there is the scripture repository at the top. Coming back down the side of the temple, one encounters the dining hall on one level, and the Sleeping Buddha below that.
