It was the first stop of our Silk Road tour, and we came away impressed by this beautiful hundred years old Buddhist temple. We learned about Tibetan culture as well. This place is definitely popular tourist destination. P.S. Restrooms are clean and well maintained.

This temple was for the teacher of Dalai and Banchan Lamar. He created the Huang Jiao, one kind of Tibetan Buddhism. There are many Tibetan people praying there.
