What travelers say:

The Sungzanlin Temple in the summer is obviously a lot of hustle and bustle, as if all the visitors to Shangri-La gathered here. Fortunately, there is always a peaceful side of the temple and the Shangri-La's sense of indistinguishable from the outside.

Additional Information


Sungtseling—or Ganden Sumtseling Monastery—is also known Guihuasi (Temple of Returning to Norms). It is a large Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Yunnan and is also one of the centers of the Gelug (Yellow) School of Buddhism. Built in 1679, the temple was given its name by the fifth Lama. Sungtseling is built into, around and on the mountainside. As it looks similar to the Potala Palace in Lhasa, it is sometimes affectionately called the Little Potala Palace. Because of the temple's many cultural and religious treasures as used in Tibetan Buddhism, this site is absolutely worth a visit.
