The White Dagoba Temple (BaiTa Si)

The White Dagoba Temple (Baita Si) is also called Miaoying Si, this temple features the largest Tibetan dagoba in China. There are two white dagobas in Beijing, this one is 15-meter taller than the one in Beihai Park.
The White Dagoba Temple has a history of over 700 years, in 1271, Mongolian leader Kublai Khan united the whole country and started the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), in order to consolidate the relationship between the state and the lamaist power in Tibet, Kublai Khan decided to build this lamaist white dagoba, then the White Dagoba temple functioned as an imperial temple during the Yuan Dynasty, When Kublai Khan died, the funeral ceremony was held there.
The temple was burnt to the ground in the year 1368, but the White Dagoba survived in the big fire amazingly. In the Ming Dynasty, the temple was rebuilt and renamed Miaoying Si. In the late Qing Dynasty, this temple became one of the most renowned spots for the temple fairs. Today, it opens for travelers, and many devout people come to pray for blessings around the dagoba.
