The main attraction is the very impressive standing huge statute. The rest of the complex is very similar to other Tibetan monasteries. According to our guide, this statute is a replacement for the former which was melted down to make bullets for the Soviet soldiers...More

Well worth taking the time, and small admission fee, to take a look. You have to pay an extra fee to use your camera.

I was very impressed to see not just the statue but the enitre complex. The statue itself is enormous and highly detailed on all sides. The interior of the building is colorful with a detailed wooden ceiling. Family shrines surround the statue.

Wonderfully atmospheric working temple with impressively huge internal standing Buddha. You'll be craning your neck to take it all in. There's a charge for internal photography.

Like so many places in UB, this is another tourist trap. There are pickpockets and they will try and take your wallet so hold onto it. When you notice them, they will cower and stare at the walls but it’s ridiculous. It just becomes so...More

The Avalokiteśvara statue is truly impressive. It's the largest indoor statue in the world, and is covered in gold leaf. It's not just the statue, the building housing it is also very impressive, do look at the very tall wooden pillars supporting the roof, and...More
