I visited the Yonghegong Lama Temple in Beijing yesterday with Laurence.
It is one of the largest Tibetan Buddhist monastries in the world; there is considerable controversy about the political freedom of the Tibetan Buddhists – certainly the monks in the monastry were all goverment approved.
That aside – it was a very tranquil and relaxing end to the day. The road to the monastry was lined with shops selling insense sticks; the smell of sandalwood was incredible.
Two more large panoramas – they are large files so download may be slow. The originals are massive.
