There is a legend on the beautiful Emei. It is said that during the Qing Dynasty, a monk discovered Fuhu temple and repaired it perfectly with his own efforts. At that time, due to the prevalence of Buddhism, many people came here to worship, including Emperor Kangxi. Kangxi noticed a phenomenon, and he was very shocked that the top of Fuhu temple was extremely clean, even spotless and leafless. Kangxi paid a private visit here for a period of time, and found that every time he went there, he was clean, so he wrote: Li Gou yuan.
As the name suggests, Ligou garden is a place where people sigh because it is completely opposite to the external situation. Up to now, Kangxi’s autograph “Li Gou yuan” is also shining in Fuhu temple.
Seeing this, many people have doubts about it. As a result, netizens raised several questions: first, Fuhu temple is located at the lower edge of Emei Mountain, but there are many trees and lush grass on Emei. Whether it is the wind or the natural law, there should always be fallen leaves floating to the roof. Moreover, Emei is about 4000 meters away from Shanghai, and there are nearly 200 ancient temples from the top of the mountain to the foot of the mountain Why have you never heard of such legends or reports in other ancient temples? Didn’t the monks of Fuhu Temple clean it by themselves? Things are complicated, and all kinds of questions have become more and more strange in the discussion of many netizens, but there is no accurate scientific explanation to determine the nature of the matter.
With the popularity of Fuhu temple, it is always seen in the popular scenic spots of Emei, with a mysterious introduction from the local guide – since the temple was built, the roof has never been stained with any fallen leaves. The legend is because of the protection of Buddha.
In this kind of propaganda, people flock to it. The more unsolved the mystery of nature, the more interesting it will attract scientists. Sure enough, a large number of professionals came to this place. During the closing period, after several months of investigation, they got the final answer.
Experts sigh: in the final analysis, there are two reasons. First of all, at the beginning of the construction of Fuhu temple, when the temple builders designed the roof of Fuhu temple, it was 35 degrees higher than other temples on Mount Emei. In this way, if there were some fallen leaves or dust on the roof, it was extremely easy to fall. The second and most important reason is that Fuhu temple is located in the center of the mountain, and there are specially designed vents in front and back. Fuhu temple is located in China, the northern hemisphere summer monsoon and winter monsoon will enter according to different vents, thus forming a cyclone. Therefore, some leaves were swept away by the whirlwind before they fell to the top of the temple. If a tree leaves fall on it, once there is a wind, it will immediately roll away the fallen leaves. Therefore, there are basically no fallen leaves on the top of Fuhu temple on Mount Emei.
The so-called mystery of nature and the protection of Buddha are actually the crystallization of the wisdom of the ancients, which experts all sigh with regret. The direction of the wind and the slope of the roof have created the legend of Fuhu temple. No matter who it is, they will always sigh for the ingenuity of their predecessors.
