Lama Temple

Located in the historic city of Beijing, the one-and-only Lama Temple is by far one of the country’s most memorable lamaseries, representing Beijing’s very oldest building of its kind. Visitors by the thousands return to this holiday destination every year to admire what was once the residing headquarters of Prince Yin Zhen. Built in 1694 at the peak of the Qing Dynasty, the temple was once the residence, as well, for court eunuchs before later enjoying well-known statuses as the Yonghe Temple, or Palace of Peace and Harmony Lama Temple, which it presently maintains Visitors to this breathtaking temple will travel through more than 300 years of Chinese history displayed to them by one-of-a-kind architecture and murals.

  • Visit The Hall of the Wheel of the Law Functions in Beijing’s Lama Temple and see the statue of Je Tsongkhapa, who was the creator of the Geluk School, as well as the Five-Hundred-Arhat-Hill.
  • Explore the Hall of Harmony and Peace to see statues of the three Buddhas: Maitreya Buddha, Sakyamuni, and Kasyapa Matanga.

The Lama Temple is located in the northeastern section of Beijing within the Dongcheng District. The temple is open to the public from 9 am to 5 pm.
