On October 11th, a delegation led by Herr Hofrat Dr. Hellmuth Schnabl (Director of Steiermark Government Office for Economic, Tourist and Sport Affairs) visited Huguo Temple in Wenzhou in the company of Dong Guohua (Vice Minister of the United Front Work Department of Ouhai and Director of Foreign and Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of Ouhai), Huang Zhitian(Vice Minister of the United Front Work Department of Ouhai and Director of Bureau of Ethnic and Religious Affairs of Ouhai) and other leaders.

Accompanied by Monk Liao Zheng and Dharma-bhanaka Ren Wu, the delegation visited main halls in the temple such as the Hall of Maitreya Buddha, the Arhat Hall, the Mahavira Hall, the Jade Buddha  Temple, family hall for worshiping Buddha and Huguo Temple Branch in the municipal library.

When marveling at the majestic simplicity, rich Tang style and typical Ouyue ethnic feature of those ancient architectures, the delegation was also interested in the 500 boxwood-carved statues of Arhat of various shapes and Wenzhou characteristics, as well as the Buddhist prayer ritual ongoing in the Mahavira Hall. Monk Liao Zheng and Dharma-bhanaka Ren Wu answered questions and resolved doubts from the delegation.

The visit was coordinated by Foreign and Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of Ouhai and joined by Bureau of Ethnic and Religious Affairs of Ouhai for the purpose of contributing to the “Belt and Road” initiative and disseminating Chinese culture.
