Chinese top political advisor Jia Qinglin Wednesday met a group of religious figures from temples and churches whose efforts to build a "harmonious religious site" had been recognized.

A rally was held Wednesday in Beijing to commend the religious figures and their temples and churches for their accomplishments in promoting patriotism and law awareness among temple and church staff and believers, and in creating a harmonious environment for religious activities.

Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), congratulated the delegates on their social services and efforts to maintain a harmonious religious relationship.

Vice Premier Hui Liangyu said at the ceremony that temples and churches should be a key place to showcase China's religious freedom policy and to promote the law-abiding awareness.

Hui also hoped religious sites to become an important platform to encourage believers to make contributions to the country's economic and social development.
