Saturday Afternoon at the Lama Temple

Walking the grounds of the Lama Temple offered a respite from the busy week. Known as the “Palace of Peace and Harmony,” the Lama Temple (Yonghegong) was originally the home of an emperor. It is a Mongolian-Tibetan temple and monastery dating back to the late 16th century.

  1. Wow, that is stunning. I wish I could also visit the temple. I live in Johannesburg (South Africa) and we have the Nan Hua temple a few hours drive away. I try and visit at least once a year, it is a very special experience. Thankyou for the great post and pics share. 🙂
