Regong, which means "golden valley" in Tibetan, is named after Regong, which originated at the Longwu River in Tongren County, Huangnan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province. For hundreds of years, the people of Regong have inherited the folk Buddhist painting art from religious temples for several generations. The large number of practitioners in the entire region and the exquisite group skills are breathtaking!
Closer to the county seat, the two temples are next to each other. Although they are not as magnificent as the Taer Temple, they also have its majesty. Without the noise and prosperity of the city, tranquility is the unique feature here.
There is a big Buddha that can be seen from a distance, magnificent and majestic. Many parts of the temple are under repair, but it is still majestic. There are many temples in Regong Township and it is also the hometown of Thangka. In addition to Wucun Shangsi, there is Wutunxiasi

Walk another 4 kilometers to Shuangpeng West Town, where you can see the Danxia landform. Coming soon to my colleagues, rivers, woods and farmland appeared, and the dense forests made people want to go down. In the Golden Valley, my colleagues in Qinghai went to Gannan this time. Looking at the map, my colleagues in Qinghai were not far from Xiahe, so I decided to take a look. "Tongren" is called "Regong" in Tibetan. From the 14th to 15th centuries, Tibetan Buddhism was introduced to the Tongren area. It is located in Wutun Shangxiazhuang, Nianduhu, Guo Mari, Gasairi, etc. on the Longwu River in Regong. The Tibetan and Tu people in the natural villages conformed to the rise of Lamaism, and the continuous expansion and decoration of temple buildings gave rise to paintings, sculptures, stone carvings and other arts mainly for religious services, called Regong Buddhist art. In the middle of the 17th century, it has become a painting town where "everyone can paint, and every family takes art as their career", so it is also called Wutun Buddhist Art. "Regong Art" is an important part of Tibetan Buddhist art and an art genre with a wide range of influences. For hundreds of years, there have been a large number of artists engaged in folk Buddhist painting and sculpture art. They are rare in other Tibetan areas because of the large number of artists and the excellent skills of the group. Therefore, it is known as the "hometown of Tibetan painters" and Tongren area It is called "Regong" in Tibetan, so this art is collectively called "Regong Art". I only found out that although it is not far, it is all mountain roads, and there is a section of gravel road, 105 kilometers one way, at least more than 5 hours to drive back and forth. But this trip to Qinghai is very worthwhile. The beautiful Ganjia grassland, the exquisite Shangxiawutun Temple, the dazzling Regong Thangka, and the majestic Longwu Temple have made us a lot of rewards. We should really recommend it. . Walk another 8 kilometers to the junction of Sancha Road, take Provincial Highway 203, turn to the direction of Longwu Temple to the south, and soon you will see Wutunxia Temple, Wutun Shang Temple, Qinghai Huangnanzhou Regong Painting Academy.
