Here we see people burning incense outside the Lama Temple, which is a Tibetan Buddhist temple right in the middle of Beijing. I thought that whole Tibetan Buddhist thing was frowned upon, but I guess not!
Here is the outside of the Lama Temple. I — unlike the multitudes of tourists at the place — respected the signs that said “no photography” of the 25 foot tall Buddha statue inside. It was very impressive, not diminished by the sign from the Guinness Book of Worlds Records stating that they confirmed it to be carved from one singular piece of sandalwood.
