Wonderful experience! Lots to see and enjoy. Quite busy with locals praying but there is space for everyone. The most amazing Buddha statue I have seen.

Interesting place to visit. Very exiting to see a buddhist temple in China and learn about its history.

Prepare ahead before going, it is a big place. Try to travel in Feb-april for less visitors which means more time to be spent. Read some history first to understand. There is an old library with ancient scripts, make sure you find it on your way out by the right and ask for help on the scripts.

Built during the Qing Dynasty, this is a massive temple complex popular with tourists and locals. There is are a number of impressive statues inside some of the temples, including a giant golden Buddha statue that is worth seeing by itself. Easy to walk around and people watch as well.

Beautiful and peaceful. Worth checking out in Beijing.

An operating Buddist temple so be aware of the people who come to worship. Beautiful buildings with most signage in Mandarin. Was there while Winter still had a hold on the weather: would be spectacular in full Spring. Probably worth doing a little reading before you go there. Definitely on the list for a history of China-Beijing tourist.

A huge temple in Beijing. Near Yonghegong metro station. To go in there you have to pay ticket and get like mini disc (when i was go there at 2014) I like it there. Not far from the temple, there is dimsum place open 24 hour. So, before or after you go to Lama Tempe, u can have meal there.

What an amazing place.. The architecture is fantastic and it has an amazing atmosphere. You can see where the monks study and there were a few working around the temples, it was really interesting :)

This is an amazing place to visit, it a Buddhist temple Tibetian in origin as I understand, whereby people do come here for their religious prayer. The smoke from prayer definitely will fill up your nostrils, suggest to wear mask if you have allergies. Crowded area, the statues are to be seen only, not allowed to take pictures.

They have the tallest Buddha statue in the world, worth a visit.

Most probably one of the most beautiful temples I have seen in Beijing. The architecture is just mind blowing and very colourful. A definite must see. It has a special feel when you walk around.

My favorite place in Beijing! Magical place with the smell of incense wafting through the halls and courtyards, monks walking around and beautiful statues, sculptures, prayer wheels all around. You could spend a whole day here wandering, meditating, relaxing, praying... A must do!

Fascinatingly quiet and peaceful place, while still alive and functioning (not like a museum). One is only wondering if all the tourists are truly welcome...
