Lama Temple

Sharing is caring!

Since the Forbidden City was closed during my stay in Beijing, I visited the lesser known Yonge or Lama Temple, a Tibetan Buddhism temple that managed to survive the cultural revolution.

As temple goes, once you’ve seen a few, you seen it all, but the Lama Temple had a cozy feeling to it. Its smaller size and local patronage made it feel less touristy and more like a neighborhood staple. I loved watching the incense being lit and the many prayers being devoted at the entrance of the temple.

This is a very short post. I just wanted to share with you the pictures of this beautiful place.
