Lama Temple

Lama Temple. [China.org.cn] 

The Yonghe Temple, also known as “Lama Temple,” is one of the largest Tibetan Buddhist monasteries. The temple was built to house the Kangxi Emperor's son. Once his son became Emperor, it was converted into a monastery for the Tibetan Buddhist monks. The history of this building has led to a mixed theme of Han and Tibetian architecture and artwork. The temple is still active, so walk through and smell incense burning, and see people worshiping along with monks. The statues are memorable, and the visit will be well worth your time.


Time needed: 2 hours

Entry Fee: 25 yuan

Operating hours: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Directions: Take subway line 2 or 5 to stop Yonghegong (Lama Temple)
