The Work si, which is translated as "temple" or "monastery", originally meant a government office. With heavily guarded splendid buildings, it enjoyed the status next only to the imperial palace. A place where the image of Buddha was enshrined was deemed as Sacred as a Si. This is How Temple Came into being.
Tanzhe Temple was first Buddhist Temple Built in the Beijing Area.
