A visit to the Famen Temple can be part of the Xian Tours. Located in Famen Town about 74 miles west of Xian, this temple is one of the most important Buddhist temples in existence. It contains the precious phalanx bone of Sakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism. According to the Buddhist records, Famen Temple was originally built during the end of the Eastern Han Dynasty to store the holy bone. The temple became the royal temple in the Tang Dynasty. In 874 AD, the holy phalanx was buried in the Underground Palace under the Famen Temple Pagoda with royal property and the secret of these buried treasures were kept until 1987, when the Underground Palace was found by archaeologists. They found the hidden bone as well as two thousand precious relics of the Tang Dynasty. To enhance preservation of these treasures, Famen Temple Museum was established in 1989. Among the treasures, a gold-plated Buddhist abbot staff over six feet in length is the oldest and biggest Buddhist object ever found. It also includes thirteen pieces of royal china made using techniques that have disappeared through the mists of time.
