Jiangtian Buddhist Temple
Miaogao Platform，also called Drying Scripture Platform. “Miaogao” is a free translation counterpart of “Xumi” in Sanskrit. According to the Records of Jinshan written by Liu Bian, “Miaogao Platform is behind the Jialan Hall; it was built by the monk Foyin chiseling a cliff during the Yuanyou Period of the Song Dynasty; it is more than ten zhang high; there is a pavilion upon it; it is also called Drying Scripture Platform.” It has gone through rises and falls for many times. The monk Shizhong of the Ming Dynasty and Xue Shuchang of the Qing Dynasty had successively rebuilt it. In 1948, it was ruined by fire together with the grand hall of the Jinshan Temple and the Scripture Collection Building. Now only the site of the platform is left. The Miaogao Platform was also a good place to admire the moon at that time. There is a tale going around there that Su Dongpo, a famous writer of the North Song Dynasty, once admired the moon here.
