The worship of Guan Ying in China is growing. Guan Yin was a male Hindu god that was imported into Chinese Buddhism as a female deity of compassion. Temples to Guan Ying can be found in many places across china.

With Buddhism, Guan Yin's worship was introduced into China as early as the 1st century AD, and reached Japan by way of Korea soon after Buddhism was first introduced into the country from the mid-7th century. This bodhisattva was introduced into Tibet (called Chenrezig) in the 7th century.
