Lama Temple

Lama Temple is one of the top 10 tourist attractions in Beijing. Located in northeast Beijing, Lama Temple (Yonghe Gong) has become one of Beijing's most active Buddhist temples. Built as a palace in 1694, the structure was rededicated as a Buddhist templein 1723 and was given over to Lamaist practitioners in 1744. The complex consists of a consecutive chain of five halls, the last of which houses a spectacular 18-m. (59-ft.) Maitreya Buddha carved from a single sandlewood tree. Lama Temple can also be reached via public buses #13, 44, and 116(the latter being the most direct).
