The street from the metro station to the temple's entrance is full of shops selling incense. Once you enter the temple, however, you forget you're in a big city as it becomes so quiet.
People come here to worship and pray, even with the tourists milling about taking pictures of everything.
As you move from one hall to the next, the Buddha statues get bigger and more detailed until you reach the giant Buddha that is actually listed in the Guinness Book of Records.
Here's a tip: When leaving the metro station, if your destination is the Lama Temple, do not cross the street and turn any corners. You'll end up at the Temple of Confucius. Just walk straight down. There will be signs pointing to the Lama Temple.
