Although not on a top-five list of places to visit in Xi’an for foreigners, the site is popular with nationals and Japanese, since a Japanese Buddhist monk brought back his Buddhist teachings to his island home in the 800s.

Completely recreated, the modern site is picturesque with its halls, parkland ponds and working monastery.
