Famen Temple is located in Famen Town, about 110 km west of Xi'an. It was built at the end of the the Eastern Han Dynasty (25 – 220). Famen Temple is one of the must-see places of Xi'an after the Terracotta Army.
Famen Temple is famous for four important Buddhist relics. During the Tang Dynasty (618 – 907), the Emperor Xizong buried some Buddhist artifacts in an underground palace. These excavated treasures, including four Bodhisattva statues, and some ceramics and silks, are exhibited in the museum of the temple. Therefore, Famen Temple is a holy place for Buddhism.
