Famen Temple (Famen Si) owes its prominence to both its age (1,700 years) and its position as the home of the finger bone of the Sakyamuni Buddha. Archaeologists unearthed the bone--considered one of the one important Buddhist relics--in 1987, along with a hidden underground Buddhist palace full of jewelry, gold, and ornate mandalas. A new complex adjacent to the towering pagoda to safeguards the finger bone, which you can view. In the Famen Temple museum, admire artificats of porcelain, silk, colored glaze ware, silverware, and other precious treasures of the Tang Dynasty.

自驾从西安过去得一个多小时，全程高速比较好走。新修建的法门寺很大很大，从正面进去，我们嫌贵没坐那里的电瓶车，结果走了快一个小时才能里面的法塔和旧法门寺。电瓶车也很坑，无论什么时候上车都跟进门的时候一个价，所以要不就开始坐，要不就坚持不坐，可以从旧法门寺那里有个门出去，打个的士就回来正门取车。新法门寺其实没有什么东西看，都是人造新建筑物，就是把舍利子请过去了，另外还有个博物馆。旧法门寺就比较有历史感... more »
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.
中国景区建设没什么法则，这好好的法门寺修的新区怎么那么粗燥没文化，就是硬给你个 大 的感觉。看完想走不容易，一条路，楞是要你逛商场，少说也有三里路，老人🉐做好心理生理准备。老区还是很有底蕴的，值得流连。
Nobu WatThan many world Buddha (Buddha's ashes) stupa here is probably the most reliable ones that seem possible. From the bottom of the Tower collapsed a few years ago excavations in 1987, appeared on the underground Palace. It is found on gold and silver jewelry, celadon and glassware as well as Buddha shôsô-in the Chinese language was used at that time, the more. Known as the temple has been the famen Temple in the Tang dynasty came from India at a great stupa (reliquary true body), otherwise this stupa is not or? Seems to be. Treasure Group found more than valuable itself. You can know the culture of the time. Of course would be to Buddha from the Tang emperor by donors. It is located about 100 km away from Xi'an. It is kinda far. Because it goes back further than the Tang dynasty, and later Han dynasty, famen Temple temples of considerable (and so rather than the mythical age is Japan (* _ *) figurine)... that can. Yaeyama was paid the Buddha stupa itself unable to see in the famen Temple Museum's treasure chest? That can be seen. It is recommended that tour artefacts at the Museum are not of course at the time in the Dou.View original
