Local Buddhists often go to Fa Yuan Si to pray. The Buddhist service is open to all. The temple is the second largest in the capital. It has several halls - Davaraja Hall, Mahavira Hall and side halls. In its third courtyard, there are three tablets dating back to the Tang Dynasty (618-907) and three pillars from the Liao Dynasty (916-1125). The inscriptions on the tablets and pillars can still be deciphered despite erosion. An exhibition hall in the fifth courtyard houses valuable manuscripts, ceramics, bronzes and other treasures. The China Buddhism Library and China Buddhism College are also established at the temple.
