浦甘四大佛塔

0


浦甘佛塔眾多,但要數最突出的,卻只有寥寥數個大佛塔,分別是Dhamma-yan-gyi Pahto、Su-la-ma-ni Pahto、Ananda Temple及That-byin-nyu Temple。

這四所佛塔特別容易識認,在Shwesandaw Pagoda看日出時,最大的四座便是它們,而且相隔不遠,用單車絕對可以穿梭來回各景點。

四個佛塔中,最深刻的是Dhamma-yan-gyi Pahto,金字塔型的建築,內裏像機關重重,很有電腦遊戲「盜墓者」的感覺。剛踏進佛塔,便有兩個當地小朋友招呼,初時還以為她們要錢,誰不知,她們熱情地帶領我們閒逛,又解釋這裏的歷史,十分熱情﹗

浦甘天氣十分炎熱,有說中午氣溫高達四十度,我和阿湧已醒目,在日頭最猛烈的時間先回旅館睡覺。誰不知,出來吃午飯後,我仍然有中暑跡象,全身乏力,還發燒,加上踩單車太久,導致Pet Pet痛,最後竟然租人力車代步,奉勸各位,若要到浦甘,記謹做足防曬及防暑準備。

佛塔小介紹:
Dhamma-yan-gyi Pahto這佛塔最特別的,是磚塊是緊密接逢著,據說興建的是一名當地人Narathu,他為贖殺父之仇而蓋\的,他下令工人用針將磚塊連起,假如看見一根針,便砍斷工人手指,因此這座建築亦起得特別仔細。而這塔只有外迴廊供人參觀,內迴廊則被封起,原因不明。

That-byin-nyu Temple於十二世紀由Alaungsithu國王興建,高六十一公尺,開創左右對稱的建築先例,亦打破了早期如Ananda Temple的四方對稱概念,被公認是浦甘中期成熟建築技術的代表作。

Ananda Temple是浦甘最美麗的佛塔,灰白色的設計,最近還重修,重新鋪上一層金漆,令Ananada成為眾佛塔中最明亮的。Ananda相傳於1105年落成的,它有著希臘十字的建築風格,四方對稱,四個大殿均是四方形設計,內裏各有一尊高九點五公尺的佛像。但帶相機進入這裏時,要付100khats的拍照費。

Su-la-ma-ni Pahto在1183年建成,是浦甘晚期建築的代表作。最特別是每道門的問楣及兩旁,都有著精緻的半浮雕,雖然年代久遠,日久失修,已失去光澤及剝落,但仔細地看,仍然可以幻想到當年是如何巧奪天工。

Bupaya位於海邊,能看到伊洛瓦底江的景色,是觀賞日落的好去處,這裏晚間會有射燈射著葫蘆型的佛塔,十分有情調。這裏要收100khats的攝影費。

Chee

My name is Chee. Add a "r" after the word, then it would become Cheer. This name is called by my friend in university and I like it very much. Why do I love this name? Easy. I always think cheer is important because life is limited and we should make every possible way to enjoy, play, and make ourselves happy. But, saying is easier than doing. Whenever you want to do one thing, something would happen and it will disturb what you are doing right now. You'll never guess what the thing would be. Especially a few people gather together, you'll never guess what they're thinking. More the people there are, more the mess it would be. I've learned the above lesson very very early, and I try not to mind what other's people thinking, but it's really really difficult. Today, I failed again. My friend made me unhappy. But I know I'll recover and back to my life again tomorrow after I had a good sleep. Maybe this is the way of escape since the problems haven't solved yet, but I believe there will be ways to solve the problems and you'll never believe that ways are not so complicated as you think. So cheer cheer cheer up, and life would become easy and happy. 「講左咁耐,都唔知大家明唔明講乜,不過唔明都唔緊要啦,做人難得糊塗嘛,又何必太在意我呢個傻婆講既野。」

今次在麗江拍照少了,但令人興奮的是有朋友看過照片後,稱讚我的攝影技術有進步。其實是我今次風景少影了,當地的人和事卻成為鏡頭下的焦點,予人生動的感覺。
