This is another very early monastery built by Songtsen Gampo and it is good to see that it has been rebuilt and is a living spiritual centre again. The main points of interest are the excellent newly repainted murals depicting the life of the buddha...More

Small temple but there are a lot of interesting things...especially a Pearl tangka.... This temple has a long history. They said it was built in King Songtsun Gampo era. Although the mural on the walls are re-painted, they are quite interesting!

Being out of the way, this monastery does not receive the hordes of visitors that the ones in Lhasa do. As usual, no photos are allowed inside. Climb to the upper levels for some of the more interesting parts.

If you have been to Samye, which is in the same area, this monastery will not show anything more. Suppose one reason to visit is to help the local tourist trade, they really need it.

This was one of the earliest Buddhist temples but there was not too much to see except for the large gold prayer wheel in front. There was one large piece of art in the interior but not much else of interest.

Most visitors might think "not another monastery!", but this is definitely worth visiting! There are some very rare relics in it, not to be found elsewhere! Climb all the way to the top section to see all the Holy shrines.
