Additional Information


Tang Daci'en Temple Ruins Park is located on the northeast side of the South Square of the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, on the site of the Tang Dynasty Daci'en Temple, close to the current Daci'en Temple. This is a Buddhist culture-themed garden, and the park ubiquitously conveys the atmosphere of "Zen enlightenment", a unique religious experience in China, to citizens. The statues, sculptures, and vegetation in the entire park all reflect the realm of Zen, with a delicate and elegant style, as well as a profound and lofty cultural atmosphere. The combination of the park's seclusion culture and Buddhist culture makes the whole garden quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and has a unique atmosphere of tranquility. In the park, there are scenic spots such as Gaozong’s Temple, Xuanzang’s Pagoda, Jianzhen Dongdu, Big Buddha Statue, and Peony Garden.
