The Lama Temple (Yonghe Lamasery) is huge temple situated near the Confucius Temple and the Imperial Academy (they are all located at the northeastern side of Beijing). It looks so grand from outside, but when I entered it I found a temple that wasn't much more special than others I've seen in Beijing, got bored and finished my visit there quite quickly. It's full of tourists compared to other places, full of smoke and just feels like it's there for the tourists. I entered it right after seeing the Confucius Temple and, to be honest, was much more impressed from the small, Confucius Temple than from the huge Lama Temple.
