Built during the Liao Dynasty (907 - 1125), the Huayan Monastery is the largest and best preserved monastery of the Liao Dynasty in existence in China. In the middle period of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), the temple was divided into two parts, the Upper Huayan Monastery and the Lower Huayan Monastery. The upper one referred to as the Grand Hall housing five large Ming Dynasty Buddhas, and the lower section referred to as the Sutra Temple containing a library of some 18,000 volumes of Buddhist writings.
There are the green bamboo forest and the old and strong pins inside and outside of the monastery. It gains the name because there is a cave called Huayan Cave at the south side of the temple. There is no historical record about the year in which the monastery was built. Covering an area of 160,000 square meters, Huayan Monastery's construction acreage is 16,000 square meters.
