The Chinese history looks back to a more than 2000 year-long Buddhist tradition and China was in the past beside India the most important country that has contributed to the spread of Buddhism to the rest of Asia. This book describes almost all Buddhist temples in the central urban area of Beijing and also their historical development and symbolism. A brief introduction to the most essential teachings of Buddhism and especially the Chinese Buddhism and in the architecture of temples complements these representations. Each temple is assigned locally, as described in its historical development and then documented in detail - its buildings, the statues, the content and meaning, etc. All terms and locations are listed also in Chinese characters with Romanized transliteration and explained.
