Lama Temple - Yonghegong, Beijing: 67 reviews and 156 photos
This temple was first the palace of a prince. When he became the Emperor, he donated it to the Tibetan Buddhists, because it was not allowed to live in the palace anymore. The Lama Temple Yonghegong was for a very long time the residence of the Panchen Lama, when he visited Beijing.
Now the Lamassery is bustling with live. Ok, this is a photo taken on a cold winter day in 1988. I have been there again during Springfestival in 1999 and I had to queue for 15 minutes to make my bows to the famous wooden Buddha there!
