Yonghegong Lama Temple

 

 

Yonghe Temple is a  

lama temple,

located in the northeast of Beijing, was a gift given by Emperor Kangxi to his fourth son, Prince Yinzhen, who was crowned as Emperor Yongzheng after Emperor Kangxi died. In 1735,

Emperor Yongzheng

  died and his coffin was kept in this temple for a certain time. Therefore, the color of glazed tiles of the main halls was changed to yellow from green.

 

Furthermore, Emperor Qianlong was also born here. There were two emperors in Qing Dynasty walking out from this place. It is equal to Forbidden City, and red walls and yellow tiles show its superiority and uncommonness. In 1744, it was renamed Lama Temple. It is the highest-level Buddhism temple around China

 

Lama Temple is roughly composed of torii, heaven-king hall, major hall of Lama Temple, Yongyou hall, Falun hall and Wanfu hall. Additionally, there are also the subordinate hall and Four-study Halls, Which are sermon hall, mystery hall, math hall, and medicine hall. The general layout of whole architecture gradually dwindles from south to north, while the hall gradually hoists. It is magnificent and full of the characters from Han people, Man people, Meng people, and Zang people.

 

In Beijing, traditional styles of buildings are concentrative in Forbidden City and Lama Temple. The grandness, inviolability, and sublimity are thoroughly released here.
