What travelers say:

The temple is the largest Tibetan Buddhist temple in Tibet, with more than 10,000 monks at its peak. It is one of the six major temples of the Yellow religion and one of the three largest in Lhasa, with history behind Gandan. The location is not really Lhasa city center, but it is worth a visit because of the relatively few tourists.
