One of the most popular tourist sights in Beijing (North Capital), which has many.
"The Yonghe Temple, also known as the "Palace of Peace and Harmony Lama Temple", the "Yonghe Lamasery", or - popularly - the "Lama Temple" is a temple and monastery of the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism located in the northeastern part of Beijing, China. It is one of the largest and most important Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in the world. The building and the artworks of the temple combine Han Chinese and Tibetan styles. The Yonghe Temple is located in Beijing's Dongcheng District, near the northeastern corner of the Second Ring Road. Lines 2 and 5 of the Beijing Subway both stop at Yonghegong, as do a number of city buses."

I like the strong tonal contrasts between temple buildings and trees. The tourists bring the scene to life. Very good sharpness.

Une superbe image colorée de ce temple qui me rappelle de bons souvenirs. J'y suis venue mais à l'époque je faisais des diapos.
Merci pour le rappel de bons souvenirs et bonne journée.

I like the color contrast (red/green) and the saturation. Good framing. I was there in 1993, but the weather conditions were very bad at that time. TSF.

The presence of the people is giving scale to the area. The point of view is allowing me to distinguish the details and colors of the architecture of the tibetan lama temple. The trees are framing well the temple. The intensity of the light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

on voyage beaucoup avec toi et c'est magnifique. Ici, la Chien traditionnelle qui me rappelle que dans une huere, je pars voir une exposition à Bruxelles sur ce fabuleux pays.
Couluers magnifiques, bien réparties sous de belles lumières, une photo qui ne manque pas de définition.

The red colour of the Yonghe Temple is certainly eye catching. Like the contrast between the green and the red colour. The people offering prayers certainly add to the composition and scale. Good work!

I haven't visited this one when I was there but the architecture is very familiar:)! Good composition with the tree, the bamboos, the incense burner and all the visitors around. Good colours also!
