Reviews about Kumbum Monastery

高登老师

5/5
Reviewed on Jul 16, 2017

1. The Tar Temple is the highest-level monastery of the Gelug Sect of Tibetan Buddhism, but it is a pity not to go to the Tar Temple in Xining; 2. Before visiting the Tar Temple, we should first know what the Gelug Sect is, who is the master of Zongkaba, and the life of the 10th Panchen Chan (you can check it online), which can greatly improve the experience of visiting; 3. The three treasures of the Tar Temple are piling embroidery, Tangka and butter. Flowers, so it's a pity to miss them when you visit. 4. The whole Tar Temple is very large. The Dajinwa Hall, Bodhi Tree and the spiritual bone pagoda of Master Zongkaba are the focus of the visit. We must leave enough time. By 18 p.m., the temple halls are closed and the lamas begin to recite scriptures and learn.

Tar Temple, located in Huangzhong County, Xining, has a history of more than 400 years. It is one of the most important monasteries of the Gelug Sect of Tibetan Buddhism (Yellow Sect). It is also the birthplace of the founder of the Yellow Sect, Master Zongkaba. The monastery is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Xining because of its magnificent architecture, rich treasures and rich religious atmosphere. There are obvious differences in the architectural layout between the Tar Temple and the Han Buddhist temples in the Mainland. "The architectural complex of the Tar Temple is not axisymmetrical and penetrates in depth. Tar Temple is an ancient building complex composed of many halls, scriptures, pagodas and colleges. The academies, halls and pagodas are irregularly distributed on a small hill. When tourists are playing, the route is more casual, not along the central axis. If you don't go into a sutra or hall and just wander outside, you don't need to buy tickets. Only when you enter some open sutras or halls, you need to check tickets. If you are the first time to come, you are advised to buy tickets for a tour, because without the hall and the academy, you can not worship the incarnation of Master Zongkaba, nor appreciate the "three unique" in the temple. At present, more than a dozen courtyards and halls are open to tourists. There is a tour guide service in the ticket office of Tar Monastery. It is suggested to invite a tour guide because the historical connotation of Tar Monastery is very deep. Without the guide's explanation, you will miss many interesting stories.
