Beijing, China Attractions
Lama Temple is the largest and most well preserved lamasery in Beijing. Prior to his ascension to the throne, the Temple was built in 1694 as a residence for the Emperor Yongzheng, the third emperor of the Qing Dynasty. The residence was converted into a lamasery in 1744.
The Lama Temple occupies 16 acres and is described as a mini-palace with yellow glazed tiles on the roof and red walls circling a group of buildings, uniquely constructed in the style of an imperial palace. The temple’s ancient architectural style is completely symmetrical, combining influences from the Han, Manchu, Mongolian, and Tibetan cultures.
