What people are saying:

Tagong Temple is a famous flower temple in Tibetan area. It is one of the famous temples of the Sakya Sect of Tibetan Buddhism. It is known as the "Little Jokhang Temple". It has a high status in Tibetan Buddhism and its temple architecture is magnificent. "Tagong" in Tibetan means "a place that Bodhisattva likes", and its biggest highlight is that there is a 12-year-old Buddha statue of Sakyamuni like the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa. Going south from the temple is the beautiful Xinduqiao photography corridor.

    Awesome in a very real sense of the word

    This is an incredible place to visit. It is not a tourist attraction(although we were warmly greeted by all we met), it is a very real monastery. The monks are so tolerant of outsiders coming in, but ...
