To the north of the Forbidden City, the 17th-century Lama Temple (sometimes known as the Yonghe Temple or ‘the Palace of Peace and Harmony’) was once the residence of the court eunuchs in the Ming Dynasty, before it became the residence of Prince Yong, who ascended to the throne as the Yongsheng Emperor in 1722. His son, the Quianlong Emperor, had the temple converted into a lamasery in 1744, and it has been one of China’s most important centres of Tibetan Buddhism ever since. The complex is beloved for its extraordinary colourful architecture – a fusion of Han Chinese and Tibetan Buddhist – and its treasury of spectacular artworks and statuary.#AmanAdventures #Beijing #China
