Buddhist and Taoist cultures

Daci Monastery in downtown Chengdu, very close to Chunxi Road, was first built during the Wei and Jin dynasties about 1,600 years ago, with its cultural height during the Tang and Song dynasties, when it gained the reputation as “the largest Buddhist congregation” in China and occupied a far greater area than its size of today. The monastery houses a large number of relics and was the place for the monkhood initiation of Xuanzang (602-664), a Buddhist monk, traveler and translator of Buddhist classics.
