Beijing - Xinhua

Huayan Temple in Xi\'an of central China\'s Shaanxi Province is the origin of the Yan faction of the country\'s eight Buddhist sects. Built 1,400 years ago, the temple was once the world center of Buddhism, attracting pilgrims from around the world. At present, however, the ancient towers of the temple are facing the danger of collapse. Let\'s find out what is being done to prevent it. Fourteen-hundred years ago, courtyards and towers were constructed in large scale in the Huayan temple, producing a magnificent architecture style. But the main buildings don\'t exist any more, and there are only two brick towers left. Due to recent bad weather, these ancient towers are also in great danger. Kuanchang, abbot of Huayan temple, said, \"The rainfall in September this year was quite heavy, which led to a landslide. You see, this large tree even fell down from the upper side, making us quite fearful.\" The soil erosion also posed a threat to the Sheli Tower of Master Dushun. Numerous cracks have formed in the land just one meter away from the tower. Kuanchang said, \"The mountainside was not reinforced. Thus landslides can take place any time it rains. This is the most serious problem.\" A local resident said, \"I\'m a local here. In the past, visitors coming here would go up the mountain for sightseeing. But now people won\'t go up there because of the danger. When it rains heavily, the tower itself is threatened.\" As time goes by, soil erosion seriously threatens the security of the relics. Now the ancient towers are facing the fate of collapse. To save them and protect the local environment, urgent protection measures should be taken.
