Bronze statue of Master Tang Xuanzang, Xi'an Attraction

Introdution

Designed by famous architect Zhang Jinqiu and famous sculptor Chen Qinan, the Bronze statue of Master Tang Xuanzang was completed in the South Square of the Dayan Pagoda in Xi'an. which is the landmark building of the South Square. If you go from the main entrance to the Big wild goose pagoda, then the first thing you have to pass is the bronze statue of Master Xuanzang. In this position, you can see the magician's style and the Dayan Pagoda behind you.

This statue of Tang Xuanzang made by bronze, with a Zen wand in his right hand and a Buddhist pearl in his left hand. It shows wisdom and perseverance in kindness. Visitors here are always competing for a picture with him. At the same time, this is also a good place to take a view of the Big wild goose pagoda square, where you can often take better pictures.

About Xuan Zang

Xuanzang, was a Chinese Buddhist monk, scholar, traveller, and translator who travelled to India in the seventh century and described the interaction between Chinese Buddhism and Indian Buddhism during the early Tang dynasty.

During the journey, he visited many sacred Buddhist sites in what are now Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bangladesh. He was born in what is now Henan province around 602, from boyhood he took to reading religious books, including the Chinese classics and the writings of ancient sages.

While residing in the city of Luoyang (in Henan in Central China), Xuanzang was ordained as a ?rāma?era (novice monk) at the age of thirteen. Due to the political and social unrest caused by the fall of the Sui dynasty, he went to Chengdu in Sichuan, where he was ordained as a bhik?u (full monk) at the age of twenty. He later travelled throughout China in search of sacred books of Buddhism. At length, he came to Chang'an, then under the peaceful rule of Emperor Taizong of Tang, where Xuanzang developed the desire to visit India. He knew about Faxian's visit to India and, like him, was concerned about the incomplete and misinterpreted nature of the Buddhist texts that had reached China.

He became famous for his seventeen-year overland journey to India (including Nalanda), which is recorded in detail in the classic Chinese text Great Tang Records on the Western Regions, which in turn provided the inspiration for the novel Journey to the West written by Wu Cheng'en during the Ming dynasty, around nine centuries after Xuanzang's death.
