Yonghegong: Tibetan Lama Temple

To understand China, it's imperative to understand the role that religion and philosophy play in the culture. Buddhism has played a prominent role, and this gorgeous temple tells a bit of that story. The Yonghegong is on the North quarter of Beijing, and is easily accessible by bus or subway. Go late in the afternoon to avoid the early tour buses, and to catch some monks in the midst of their ceremonies.
