Brief Introductions of Attractions in this program
Lama Temple was originally used as the royal residence of Prince Yongzheng during the 33rd year (1694) of Emperor Kangxi's reign of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911). In the 3rd year of Yongzheng's reign (1725), it was elevated to imperial palace for short stays away from the Forbidden City with the name changed to Palace of Peace and Harmony (Yonghegong). During the 9th year of Emperor Qianlong's reign (1477), it was change into Lama Temple. The Hall of Boundless Happiness is the biggest building; there stands a famous huge statue of Buddha, 26 meters high carved out of one single piece of sandalwood.
The Confucius temple in Beijing was built in 1302, and imperial officials used it to pay their formal respects to Confucius until 1911. The compound was enlarged twice, once during the Ming dynasty and again during the Qing; it now occupies roughly 20,000 square meters (220,000 sq ft). From 1981 until 2005, the Temple of Confucius also housed part of the art collection of the Capital Museum. It stands onGuozijian Street near the Imperial Academy.
Hutong is a typical name of an alley formed by lines of siheyuan in Beijing. Many neighborhoods were formed by joining one siheyuan to another to form a hutong, and then joining one hutong to another. Between the main hutongs, many tiny lanes ran north and south for convenient passage. Rickshaws will be taken to tour the hutongs, Beijing's back lanes lined with authentic courtyard houses, for a glimpse of traditional domestic life.
