Lama Temple

Recommended
The Lama Temple, the former palace of Prince Yong, was granted to the Tibetan community in 1744. This lamasery, one of the major attractions in Beijing, enjoyed great spiritual aura. It contains splendid Buddhist relics and Tibetan works of art, most notably a 24m-high sandalwood Buddha, sculpted from a single block, and a huge lotus flower on which sit various effigies of the Buddha of Longevity. The temple reopened for worship in 1981.
