Part V. Towering Temples and Stupas

As the followers of Buddhism, Liao emperors contributed to the prosperity of Buddhism in northern China. Generous royal gifts and believers' offerings were attributed to the flourishing temple economy. Majestic Buddhist temples were scattered all over the capitals, circuits and counties of the empire. By preaching Buddhism in a plain way, celebrating Buddha's Birthday, introducing Buddhist funerals, establishing a Buddhist community called Qianrenyi (thousands of Buddhists), Buddhism penetrated the society and bridged the nations as a vital cultural tie.
