This temple is vast, with many different temples within. You can take a small bundle of incense sticks for free when you enter. However spread your burning as you have over 10 opportunities to burn and pray. The temple and grounds are very well kept,...More

This was a beautiful site. Worth a visit if you have a spare hour. Can get very busy, so best if you go first thing in a morning.

Visit early to get the best chance to see the Buddah first to have your prayers and thanks received. They give out the incence free. The largest statute was something else.!

Every place we visited was different and had a different historical aspect. We had a great tour guide (Vivie Tours) who could explain the significance and history of each of these attractions, which brought them to life for us.

Interesting experience as there is so much incense burning and worshiping, many people come here to pray. Rather smokey in places but well worth the visit. Lots of temples to visit throughout the grounds.

Other review will capture adequately the Lama Temple itself. More important is to understand that Lama Temple, the Confucius Temple and Guozijian are all in the same area and may be visited together. Wrap up by walking back through Wudaoying Hukou

Very peaceful and calm compared to lots of places in Beijing. It was really interesting to see people actually worshipping there.

Experiencing the lama temple in person was amazing. Visitors can also burn incense sticks and pay their respects. We found the temple very calming

Yes, you could visit without one. But, I think going with a guide would be beneficial. That is what we did.
