The Lama Temple in Beijing was next door to the hostel we were staying at, we went at exactly the right time when the sun was setting and the other tourists had gone. Chinese New Year is a very spiritual time for the Chinese, and many go to the Temple to light incense and pray. It was great to see a real temple layout after studying so many floor plans and reading so much online/in books at work. Next step Lhasa in Tibet.... I wish.
