My friend had just finished med school and was hoping to get into a good residency program. Since we were both in Beijing, we decided to visit Lama Temple to pray for some good luck. It happened to be a special religious day, so the grounds were filled with people. Despite the crowds, there was a quiet feeling of serenity as we walked amongst the beautiful architecture and statues of the gods.
I put together my footage of the day in a video. Enjoy!
Excerpt from Lonely Planet:
The most renowned Tibetan Buddhist temple outside Tibet, the Lama Temple was converted to a lamasery in 1744 after serving as the former residence of Emperor Yong Zheng. Today the temple is an active place of worship, attracting pilgrims from afar, some of whom prostrate themselves in submission at full length within its halls.
