Before I visited the Lama temple (Yonghegong), I thought that this temple would be one big building surrounded by a few smaller ones.

But since my visit I know better, as this Lama temple is much more then just one building. Oh, no it is building after building after building . . .

Yes indeed this also a big site to visit. Not something you visit in 15 minutes.

There are a lot of great temples with fine architecture and colourful sculptures.

Address: Yonghegong Daije 12
