Tour description provided by Viator

Confucius Temple  and then The Lama Temple and then Transfer back to the hotel
Confucius Temple Where better to learn about the man who laid much of the foundation for traditional Chinese thought than in a temple that bears his name? Here you will discover why hierarchy has historically been a pillar of Chinese society, and what exactly students in ancient days had to memorize in order to have a chance at becoming an imperial scholar. The Lama Temple This impressive compound was once the home of China’s royalty, and has many palatial features hidden in its beautiful architecture. In 1694, Emperor Yongzheng converted it into a Tibetan Buddhist monastery to show his respect for the Dalai Lama. Inside one of the pavilions, you will find a Buddha standing over 85 feet tall that was carved from a single trunk of white sandalwood. Transfer back to the hotel
