📓Geldeng Temple is located in the northwest corner of Aba County, Aba Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province. It is 3300 meters above sea level and has a history of more than 120 years. It is the largest Tibetan Buddhist Gelugpa monastery in Aba County. The temple was built in the 9th year of Tongzhi (1870). Its predecessor was Donggou Temple. It was the seat of the Red Army leadership during the Long March of the Workers and Peasants. 💗Geldeng Temple is located in Aba County. You can stop by or stay in Aba County. We visited Lianbaoye on the first day and returned to Aba County for accommodation, and when we left Aba County early the next morning, we went to visit Geldeng Temple. The Kirden Monastery in the early morning is as resplendent as the Tibetan style.
From the mountain of God of men, in the village of Shenza Meido restaurant in the next lunch, hitchhiked to Aba County, the county is located in northwest Sichuan, belonging to the western Sichuan plateau, is the last county in the northwest of the four provinces, the altitude of 3290 meters. The county is bordered by Jiuzhi in Qinghai Province, where the famous attraction 'Nianbaoyuze' is located. It has been closed for 23 years to protect the water supply of the Three Rivers. Tours to Aba County are the Tibetan Buddhist temples of various schools and the original cultural customs of the Tibetan area. After staying, I strolled to the nearest Gelden Monastery in the northwest corner of the county. It is a 120-year-old, the largest Gelden monastery in Aba County, with more than 1,000 monks. The temple was built in 1870 and has a large shrine. With 120 pillars, the temple holds thousands of monks and people to study their verses. The temple is the first place in the heart of the local Tibetan people. The biggest attraction is the presence of young monks, who are everywhere, leaving their happy figure.
A temple worth visiting. The people of Aba County are warm and hospitable, especially when I went to Kirden Monastery. The monks in the temple are very good. This trip to Aba County made me understand the passion of Tibetans and let me know Tibetans are rich and simple, I will go again next time😃
In the county seat, the large monastery, the white pagoda behind it is particularly eye-catching. The temple is surrounded by a circle passing through the barrel corridor. After a circle, there are tens of thousands of steps. In the Aba Tibetan area, there are many lamasery and glittering gold, which shows the wealth of Tibetans today.
Went in May 2006. The day changed when I arrived in the county town, with violent storms and a steep drop in temperature.
