Additional Information


 Daxingshan Temple was built in the early Jin Dynasty. During the first year of Emperor Xuanzong of the Tang Dynasty, the Indian monk Shan Yuanzhi, Jin Gangzhi, who was known as the "Three Great Tutors of Kaiyuan", taught the Tantric Buddhism to this monastery and became one of the three major translation sites of Changan's Buddhist scriptures. Among them, the monks are available to preside over the translation service in Daxingshan Temple, and also held the initiation ceremony for the emperor of Datang. He has made indelible contributions to the study and promotion of Buddhist classics, and the temple has also become the birthplace of Chinese Buddhism Tantra.
