妙应寺白塔


  妙应白塔寺坐落于北京市西城区阜成门东,因寺内雄伟壮丽的藏式大白塔而享誉海内外。白塔始建于元至元八年(1271年),由元世祖忽必烈亲自勘察选址,一代宗师八思巴择派国师亦怜真与尼泊尔著名工艺家阿尼哥分别负责装藏和建造事宜。白塔高54.26米,状如覆钵,其制如盖,通体雪白;远远望去,气势恢宏,美轮美奂,堪称帝都标志。以白塔为中心营建的原大圣寿万安寺更成为元代的皇家道场、宗教圣地,在国家统一、民族团结、社会稳定等方面发挥了极其重要的作用。七百年来,几经沉浮却坚如磐石的白塔英姿不减当年,如今已成为最重要的元大都遗迹之一,更是汉、蒙、藏民族团结和中-尼两国友好往来的见证,具有很高的历史、文物和艺术价值。

  Located in the west city of Beijing, built in the 8th year of Zhi Yuan (1271 A.D.) and completed 8 years later, the Miao Ying Temple has been well-known for The Great White Pagoda. The White Pagoda was designed by a well-known Nepalese architect and technologist Arniger,filled with Buddhist treasure by master Renqin Jianzan, both of whom recommended by master Ba siba. After its completion, a monastery of great dimensions was constructed around it and granted the name “the Monastery of Greatness, Holy, Longevity and Everlasting Peace and Tranquility”. The monastery was one of the most important projects at the time when Kublai Khan, the first Emperor who first named his kingdom the Yuan, built his great capital city at Dadu (today’s Beijing). The White Pagoda, upside-down alms bowl in design, is the biggest Buddhist pagoda of the Yuan Dynasty ever discovered and preserved in China, being the oldest Buddhist pagoda in Beijing area.
