These are not all the Buddhist temple sites in China, but are sites mentioned in Da Qing Yitongzhi, therefore a view of the temple institutions from the point of view of the Imperial archivists. The dates of establishment of the temples range from 50 CE (Baima Si) up to the late Qing period. See Key Issues in Compiling a Digital Gazetteer for China's Historical Religious Sites (2004)
