A rare piece of the skull of Sakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism, has been permanently enshrined in a temple on Niushou Mountain in Nanjing seven years after the relic was discovered in the city.

The relic was transferred from Qixia Temple to Foding Palace for permanent enshrinement on Tuesday.

Venerable Master Xuecheng, president of the Buddhist Association of China, said at the ceremony that he hoped Foding Palace would become a peaceful, quiet and holy Buddhist venue after the ceremony.
