Additional Information

Introduction

Seda celestial burial platform is built between the Buddhist College and Seda County. It is built on a relatively flat half-mountain slope. The iron fence is used to form a flat land like a basketball court. That is the place where the celestial burial is carried out. The celestial burial is to feed the body of the deceased to the eagle, and the eagle flies into the sky after eating. The Tibetans believe that the deceased has ascended to heaven. Usually, after a person dies for a few days, the lama will be asked to go to the funeral.
