Falun Hall


Falun Hall is the blend of Han and Tibetan culture. In the center of the hall, on a huge lotus platform sits a smiling 6.1-meter-high bronze Buddha, Master Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Yellow Sect of Tibetan Buddhism. The bronze statue was made in 1924 at a cost of 200,000 silver dollars and took two years to complete. 

Behind the Zongkaba statue is the Five Hundred Arhats Mountain, one of the three wonders of wood carving in the Lama Temple. It is nearly 5 meters high, 3.5 meters long and 30 centimeters thick. It is finely carved from red sandalwood. In front of the Five Hundred Arhats Mountain, there is a wooden basin made of Phoebe zhennan. It is said that Emperor Qianlong took a bath in this basin three days after he was born.
