The Guangji Temple of Beijing, located on inner Fuchengmen Street, in the Xicheng District, is a renowned Buddhist temple. It is now the headquarters of the Chinese Buddhism Association, and the center to conduct national Buddhist activities.

The history of the Temple can be traced back to Jin Dynasty (1115-1234). But later it was destroyed by war fire. The present temple was originally rebuilt during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), but the structure have undergone three expansions, three fires, and three reconstructions. It now covers an area of 5.766 acres. The major structures in the temple are the main gate, the Heavenly King Hall, Mahavira Hall, Yuantong Hall (or Buddhisattva Hall) and Sutra Hall.

The two-storied Sutra Hall of the fourth yard houses the collection of sutras and treasures. It is filled with curiosities that have been given as gifts by friendly Buddhists of other states, and over 100,000 volumes of sutras. Amongst these, the sutras written in blood from the Song (960-1279) and Ming Dynasties are especially precious.
