Beijing White Dagoba Temple Maps

The White Dagoba Temple, locate in the Xicheng District of Beijing, is the oldest and largest Buddhist Pagoda in existence in China. It is the historical relics that witnessed the friendship and cultural exchange between China and Nepal, which proved that it has experienced a long history dated back to Yuan Dynasty and later it was burnt down by a big fire, astonishingly only the White Dagoba survived.

In the year 1457 of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Emperor Tianshun commanded the rebuild of the temple which covered an area of 13,000 square meters (3.2 acres), much smaller than the original dimensions. It was then renamed 'Miaoying Si'. It has been renewed in more recent times, but not as extensively as before. Now the temple is mainly composed of the White Dagoba and four halls, which stores many lifelike Buddhist statues, classical Buddhist scriptures, five Buddhas' crowns, flowery cassocks, colorful fabrics and other rare valuables. The most famous is the golden Dagoba Longevity Statue at the height of 5 cm. with over 40 rubies and bronzy Kwan-yin Bodhisattva Statue with a thousand hands and eyes. It is the earliest known place for translating Buddhist scriptures.

The White Dagoba Temple has now been listed as a key cultural spot that is now under the protection of the Chinese State Department. With its high cultural value and heavenly beauty, the White Dagoba Temple is bound to amaze you and leave you with a unique and lasting impression of your visit.
