    As you progress through the temple, Buddha's get bigger and bigger. Don't forget to pick up an audio tour.

    Probably the most overrated sight in all of Beijing, its no reason to visit it if you have ever visit another Tibetan Temple in your life.

    This place needs more time to walk in every door and disvover different sections of the temple. Don't miss the museum and the giant statue of wooden buddha!

    I've spent many days here over my years here in the city. You'll find peace in the smell of the incense and silence within the temples.

    1) a must-visit in Beijing, if only for its unbelievable buddha statue made entirely of one single piece of sacred tree; 2) must-go place for prayers; 3) avoid the crowd during national holidays

    One of the largest Tibetan Buddhist Monasteries in the world. In the heart of busy Bejing, slow down and reflect on how awesome it is to wander such a historical and spiritual place!

    We could happily spend many tranquil hours watching the fragrant smoke curl up from the incense burners, listening to the monks chant their sutras, and rubbing the carvings on the prayer wheels. Read more
