It was built to house early Buddhists who traveled from the West and to serve as a translation and study center.

It was renamed the Famen Temple in 618 AD and the grounds were rebuilt with the major temple buildings by Tang Emperor Wudi. It was renamed and renamed several times, but finally returned to the Famen name given at the start of the Tang Dynasty. Famen was the source of relics of Buddha for many Tang emperors. Each time the emperor wanted to seek favor with the heavens they sought support from the relics and donated generously to the temple.

History and Architecture
The pagoda was built and burnt several times. The Tang pagoda was built of wood. During the Ming Dynasty an earthquake destroyed much of the temple and the pagoda. During the reign of Ming Emperor Wanli in 1579 a brick pagoda was built to mimic the design of the original wooden structure. The temple and pagoda were refurbished several times during the Qing Dynasty. The early Republican Army used the temple as a camp site, but in 1940 funded a restoration project to refurbish the temple and bring employment to the area. The Buddhist monks returned to the temple.

In the afternoon, drive you to the Qianling Tomb, 85km west of Xian. It is where the third Tang-dynasty emperor and his empress were buried together. The third emperor was Li Zhi and his empress was Empress Wu Zetian. This is the most representative among the eighteen Tang-dynasty tombs and the best preserved. It is located on top of Liangshan (Liang Mountain), six kilometers north of Qian County City in Shaanxi Province, around eighty kilometers from Xi an. The scope of the tomb is very large with the precincts of the tomb and gardens totalling an area of 2,400,000 square meters.

On the grounds of the Qianling Tomb, what one mainly sees today are extremely beautiful stone carvings that stand on top of the hill. They are arrayed in a line leading from the 'crimson sparrow gate' to the north and mark the 'way of horses and grooms,' the double line of statues leading up to the tombs.

The Highlight of Qianling Tomb

Architecture
The first pair of stone carvings are symbolic and indicate that this is a tomb; then come a pair of war steeds and crimson swallows. The steeds have cloud-pattern curling on their haunches, as though they were flying amidst the clouds. Next come five pairs of stone horses, on which are carved saddles, stirrups and other equine accouterments. Originally each pair had stone grooms leading them but now only three remain.

According to historical documents, a number of accompanying tombs surrounded the Qianling imperial-tomb precinct. These were mostly robbed in antiquity but certain superlative works of art remain that can be seen at this museum. It is well worth a visit.
