► About Chinese dumpling: Dumpling, Chinese meat ravioli or Jiaozi in Chinese, is a food that can be made and cooked in many different ways. They are small lumps of dough that are cooked and eaten, either filled with meat and vegetables or as part of a sweet pudding.

Yonghe Palace is a temple and monastery of the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism located in the northeastern part of Beijing. The building and the artworks of the temple combine Han Chinese and Tibetan styles.

Building on the Yonghe Palace started in 1694 during the Qing Dynasty. It originally served as an official residence for court eunuchs. It was then converted into the court of the Prince Yong (Yin Zhen), a son of the Kangxi Emperor and himself the future Yongzheng Emperor. After Yongzheng's ascension to the throne in 1722, half of the building was converted into a lamasery, a monastery for monks of Tibetan Buddhism. The other half remained an imperial palace.
