The Yonghe Temple (Chinese 雍和宮, pinyin Yōng hé gōng, Palace of Peace and Harmony), also known as the "Yonghe Lamasery", or -popularly- the "Lama Temple", is a temple and monastery of the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism.
The grand bodhi is amazing
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.
They actually don't let you burn incense when it's smoggy out
royal palace turn to a temple
Atmosphere is overwhelming ... Although it's flooded with people, they still respect the ascetic lifestyle
Really beautiful temple. A must see in Beijing.
An active site of worship, walk through clouds of incense and layers of temple to see the intricate and grand Buddha statues.
It's a nice@please, it has the tallest buda made with one tree, nice to see budist people too
Fascinating place to speand an hour; do your research before visiting so you can get the proper experience.
There's free incense for visitor on the right side, a small locket after the enterance park. Don't need to buy outside
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!
Thats one of my fav temples in Beijing. If you can come here during the week. And you cant bring your own incense anymore. But you will get it for free. (After you pay 25RMB for entrance)
Origins of tibet's creature is here.

The best temple at Beijing
Ginkgo Avenue of Yonghegong Lama Temple :)
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.

Beautiful place to find tranquility. Take the audio guide to find out more out of Tibetan Buddhism. Beautiful statues and impressive to see all the pilgrims. .
Opposite side you can relax in a costa cafe with free wifi
The hutong across from here is worth the trip alone! Wudaoying hutong is a well hidden gem of beijings expat crowd.
It's a good place to pray!
Entrance 25 RMB including a small CD
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
The Temple might ne nothing special. But there are lots of Hutongs in the area. Check em' out!
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!
Get off in yonghegong (line 2) pay the ticket, and read a book lying in the quiet areas of this temple
You gotta go there at Chinese New Years'.
