Yonghegong Lamasery
Yonghegong Lamasery is the only one temple associated with Tibetan Buddhism, which was firstly built in 1694, and it was eunuchs' residence before that time, Emperor Yongzheng used to live here before he was selected as the successor since 1694, this place was changed into a Lama Temple in 1723 after Yongzheng ascended the throne because the previous imperial palace could not be for secular use. There are three the most unique masterpieces of wooden sculptures in this Lama Temple: a 26 meters high white sandalwood Buddha which is one of the Guinness Records , five-hundred Arhats Mountain made from five types of different metals, a sandalwood shrine with 99 dragons carving. If you do have the opportunity to visit this temple, please burn some incense and make a wish with traditional Chinese way.
