  • An impressive site to visit with a well maintained monastery. It has open plains and a garden surrounding it where you're able to walk around. The monastery was rebuild after the cultural revolution and itself is divided into multiple layers with their own characteristics. Being able to walk here during a prayer makes it more special. Certainly worth the visit.
