Stay in BeiJing / sights of BeiJing
Lama temple

Once serving as an imperial palace, the layout of the temple is quite different from other temples. The main gate faces south, and on its 480-meter-long north-south axis are five main halls and annexs connected by courtyards. They include a glaze-tiled arch, Gate of Peace Declaration (Zhaotaimen), Devaraja Hall (Tianwangdian), which was formerly the entrance to Yongzheng's imperial palace, Hall of Harmony and Peace (Yonghegong), Hall of Everlasting Protection (Yongyoudian), Hall of the Wheel of the Law (Falundian) and Pavilion of Eternal Happiness (Wanfuge).
