BJP-23 Beihai Park,Hutong Tour,Lama Temple 
Tour Code: BJP-23              

Duration: about 8 hours

Tour Description:
Originally a garden estate appended to the Forbidden City, the over 700,000 square meter imperial resort was opened to public and named Beihai Park by the Republic government in 1925. The White Pagoda emulates the Tibetan dagobas in its architecture and stores Buddhist scriptures, mantles, alms bowl and sacred bones inside. Though the noteworthy sights at the Park are plenty, our guide will make sure you visit every single one of them without feeling rushed. Don't miss out on the Nine Dragon Wall, Five Dragon Pavillion and Tuancheng (circular wall surrounding the Hall of Received Light with a 1.6 m tall Buddha - gift to Emperor Guangxu from a Cambodian king - its arm received damage when the assembled forces of colonial powers invaded the city in the beginning of last century).

We will then hop on the pedicabs and be taken by the skillful drivers through the crisscrossing narrow hutongs. See the unique Beijing courtyard houses and (in the morning) lively exchanges at roadside open-air markets.

We will end the day with a trip to Lama Temple - a still operating Lamasery currently housing Lamas from Tibet. Originally a prince's residence and converted to a Lamasery after the said prince ascended the throne, the Lama Temple (or more popularly known as the Yonghe Lamasery) is where the local people go for free, good-luck la ba congee on the eighth day of the last lunar month every year.
- As the Yonghe Lamasery is an operating temple with resident Lamas, please be considerate in your conducts when visiting the historic sites.
