YongHeGong 雍和宫 Lama Temple, BeiJing

YongHe Lama Temple dates from 1722 (Qing dynasty).


Emperor QianLong conferred it with imperial status and its roof tiles were changed to those with the imperial golden yellow color. The monastery became home to many Tibetan monks and eventually it was declared the National Center of Lama Administration.


It is open to the public in the afternoons. The nearest subway station is YongHeGong (lines 2 and 5).


Among the many fascinating features is the impressive 26 metre tall statue of the Maitreya Buddha that was carved from a single trunk of White Sandalwood.
