  • I rated this temple a five because of the sheer size. It is pretty new and it is built to attract visitors. The site is huge and you should get the ticket with the tram ride to save some walking and get away from the sun. There are several buildings to visit and a museum where the relic is kept. This place is a must if you are a staunch Buddhist.
  • The theatre show "Famen Renaissance 法门往事” is a must to see before proceed to the museum, the original temple and tower to learn more about the past and present of Famen temple. Nice vegan buffet available here too.
  • I've been to at least a hundred Buddhist and Taoist temples throughout Asia. This takes the cake as the biggest. Do yourself a favor and rent the tourist vehicle between the South gate and the North temple. Has a famous finger bone relic in the main hall.
  • full of bizness,pity
  • Construction of scenic spots in China not rule, the famen temple area of how rough no culture, it is hard to give you a great feeling. Reading not easy to walk, a road, cord is for you to go shopping, the less there is three miles, old 🉐 good psychological and physical preparation. Old is still inside, and hang around.
