A temple with lots of incense burning
May 2016 • Friends
To get to the Lama Temple we took Line 5 and got off at Yonghegong (Lama Temple). After exiting the train station, turn left and keep walking. After several minutes you’ll reach the Lama Temple. It cost 35RMB to enter the temple. Once you get your ticket (2 ticket slips and a small disc) you’ll go through a quick security screening where they will quickly have you open your bag for them to see. Don’t dwell on this too long; they’ll just want a quick peek. Then you’ll head up for the ticket takers to scan your ticket and you enter a nice and shaded walkway where everything is green. It’s so earthy and nice. Before you actually enter the temple, there will be a lady at a window on both opposite sides passing out free incense. If you don’t pay attention you can miss this and head into the temple without knowing that you get free incense to burn. Once you have the main temple you’ll be smelling a lot more incense as people are constantly praying and burning incense. This is a Buddhist temple so you’ll see the occasional Buddhist walking. I believe you aren’t allowed take photos of them. They’ll have several small halls for you to enter and view/pray. You can only light the incense for those outside and not the halls. It’s a nice and refreshing place to view, not much to do here except pray and see how the temple is utilized. We probably spent about an hour and a half here.
