Lama Temple - Yonghegong, Beijing
This is a definite MUST SEE! Its one of the most impressive temples in China I have seen so far....the highlight of the trip there being in the last building where a MEGA HUGE buddha resides.
The best temple of Beijing (well, except the part which is dedicated to the exhibition about the 'cooperation' between Beijing and Lhasa...)
Wall to wall thangkas and Tibetan Buddhist sculpture. Former prince's palace then Lamaist temple that, thanks to late Premier Zhou Enlai, was miraculously saved from the fanatical Red Guards.
The guidebooks word is out, if you are only going to one Buddhist temple in Beijing, it better be the Lama Temple. Its detailed temples and statues are just remarkable.
This is the most famous Tibet Temple in Beijing. The style of building is as colorful as Han?AManchuria, Mongolia, and Tibet. And they are arranged perfectly in the large site.
