Babang Temple is located on a hill 300 meters north of Babang Township Government in Dege County, with an altitude of 3800 meters. Babang Temple is large in scale and quiet. Its buildings are stacked on top of each other along the mountain.
800-year-old monastery, on the top of the mountain, away from the hustle and bustle, without the slightest vulgarity. The temples, thangkas, and murals are magnificent! Far from being comparable to the establishment of the so-called Buddhist Academy (Wu Ming, Ya Qing) in the 1980s! It's just that the mountain roads are rugged and can be reached by non-ordinary cars. In particular, the short road over the mountains from Dege (nearly half way through Ganbai Road), the scenery along the way is more beautiful.
