Built in 1694, the Yonghe Gong (Lama Temple) was the residence of Prince Yin Zhen, a son of Emperor Kang Xi of the Qing Dynasty. For many years, it was the leading center for Yellow Hat Shamanism, a distinctive branch of Tibetan Buddhism. It features five large halls and five courtyards with beautifully decorative archways, upturned eaves and carved details. Also known as the Palace of Peace and Harmony, this site houses a treasury of Buddhist art, including sculptured images of Gods, demons and Buddhas, as well as Tibetan-style murals.
