Introduction

Built in Jin Dynasty, Guangji Temple is now the location of the Buddhist Association of China. Guangji Temple has many cultural relics and historic monuments known as a huge finger painting in Qing Dynasty. Placed on back wall of the main shrine hall, a huge painting titled "Shengguo Miaoyin Painting" was painted by artist Fu Wen with fingers at the command of Qianlong Emperor in the 9th year during the reign of Emperor Qianlong and it is one of China's largest preserved finger paintings about the preaching by Buddha. In the painting, Sakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism, sitting in lotus, preaches to over 100 followers and they listen carefully. Interestingly, audiences also include China's historical figures such as Guan Yu, Guan Ping, Zhou Cang and Monk with a Cloth Bag.
