Abstract
Applying both archaeological data and the records in ancient texts, the dissertation systematically discusses the sources, distribution, layout, structure and influence of Buddhist temples in Chang’an – the capital city of the Sui and Tang Dynasties. After points out the different distribution models of Buddhist temples in the capital city Daxing of the Sui and Chang’an of the Tang, the dissertation discusses the reason for the differences. It divides the Buddhist temples in Chang’an into several types and generalizes the developmental rule of them. The dissertation further argues that the distribution and layout of Buddhist temples in Chang’an had been influenced by Buddhist temples of the Southern and Northern Dynasties and in India. Finally, the dissertation investigates the significance of Sui and Tang Buddhist temples to the emergence and development of Buddhist temples in the capital cities in the Northeast Asia.
