The Catholic Church in Mangkang County. A building with Tibetan characteristics, if it weren't for the cross, I wouldn't think it was a church. The inside of the church still retains the original Catholic characteristics.
How to get to Tibet's Yanjing Catholic Church: Yanjing is located at the junction of Yunnan and Tibet. It is also 113 kilometers away from Deqin, the nearest county town of Yunnan to Tibet. If you depart from Lijiang, you must take a shuttle bus to Shangri-La, and then transfer from Shangri-La to Deqin (Note : There is no direct shuttle bus from Lijiang to Deqin). Because the night is approaching in Deqin and there is no car to Mangkang, it is best to rush to Feilai Temple from Deqin to live in, so that the purpose is to get up the next day to enjoy the magnificent and sacred Meili Snow Mountain. After admiring the sunshine and golden mountains of Meili Snow Mountain, take a shuttle bus from Deqin or Feilai Temple to Yanjing. Due to rural passenger transport and the speed limit in Tibet, it is almost two or three o'clock in the afternoon to reach Yanjing. The Catholic Church is still some distance from the center of Yanjing Town. It can be reached by local villagers’ motorcycles or on foot. The church is a sacred religious site for the locals, so please respect local customs and customs. Currently, the Yanjing Church is open to tourists for free. cost.
The exquisite murals and beautiful sculptures in the church tell the story of Jesus. I climbed the bell tower to experience the feeling of soft feet.
A very unique church, a must-visit place in Mangkang.
I was very impressed by the previous visit. The day we arrived at the church happened to be Easter. Although the Tibetans we saw after entering the gate didn’t speak much, but their faces and eyes revealed hospitable smiles. What made us even more surprised was that they happened to be doing it. Jiajia noodles, of course, are much more authentic than what we have eaten before.
