Yonghe Temple is one of the largest Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in the world. It was built in 1694 during the Qing Dynasty and was one of the official residence for court eunuchs. At one point, it was turned into an imperial palace before being partially reverted to a monastery. Yin Zhen, a Yongzheng Emperor, had his coffin placed here after his death; this led to the monastery being given imperial status. Since then, it was been the residence for many Buddhist monks from Mongolia and Tibet.
