A practising monastery, a solemn place. Catch bus 909 from Xining and get off the bus at the terminus. The monstery is a short stroll away.
Birth place of the master tsongkha pa... Supreme founder of one of the 4 lineage in tibetan Buddhism.... Gelug lineage... Here you get to see the golden tomb stupa of je tsongkha pa... And many ancient art efacts... Pagoda and monastery have a fine high end architectural design and inside you see devotees prostrating and circumambulating the Great stupa...
One of the serene and beautiful places to be. Makes one so humble. Take bus 909 from town, get off at the terminus, and walk to the monastery.
wonderful experience not to be missed.
We went there in national holidays it it was packed, so we didn''t enjoy much te experience. Would recommend to go somewhere else like Xiahe which is less touristic and more authentic. 80 Rmb ticket entry is a robbery. Still some of the temples (the ones which are not newly built) are pretty amazing, with beautiful paints and architecture.
