We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Lama Temple

Lama Temple (雍和宫) is the most handsome and impressive Buddhist temple in Beijing. It is the only temple in Beijing to have its own subway stop. Lama Temple ( Yonghe Lamasery ) was built in the 33 Qing Kangxi year (1694) and it is now the largest and best-preserved Lamasery of Yellwo Sect in Beijing.

It was the residence of Emperor Yongzheng before his ascending to the throne. Built initially in 1694 during the Qing Dynasty, this building was the residence of Emperor Yongzheng when he was just a prince. However, in 1744 the Qing Dynasty formally changed the status of the dwelling to that of a lamasery, and so Yonghe Lamasery became the national centre of Lama administration.

The whole temple sits from north toward south. The following architectures line from south to north orderly- the Arch Courtyard(Pailouyuan), the Gate of Zhaotai (Zhaotaimen), the Hall of Heavenly Kings (Yian wangdian), the Hall of Harmony and Peace(Yonghegongdian), the Hall of Eternal Blessing (Yongyoudian), the Hall of Dharma Whell (Falundian), and the Ten- Thousand- Happiness Pavilion(Wanfuge) etc.

500 Arhat Mountain in the Hall of Dharma Wheel(Falundian) is carved with rosewood,3 meters wide, 5 meter high and thirty centimeters thick. The Five-hundred-arhat Mountain is carved with rosewood, whicih is 3 meters wide, 5 meters high and 30 centimeters thick apporoximately. The five hundreds arhats is made of five metalsgold, siver copper, iron and tin-and it is one of "three masterpieces" of Lama Temple.

The huge wood-carved "Maidala Buddha" worshipped in the Ten-Thousan-Buddha Pavilion(Wanfoge) is 18 meters high, and 26 meters high all together if plus with the 8 meters buried under the earth. It is also one of the "three masterpieces" of Lama Temple. The rosewodd huge Buddha has been listed into the Guinnes World Record in 1990.
