About this place

The town is a monastery, the monastery is the town. Huiyuan Gompa is the birthplace of the 11th Dalai Lama, temporal residence of the 7th Dalai Lama, and was a hotel of the present Dalai Lama. This monastery is on the halfway from Tagong to Danba. Red roofs and yellow walls. It says it was the only Qing-government-sponsored Gelugpa monastery in Tibet and the buildings are of a little Han style. It was the residence of 7th Dalai Lama when the Machurian army was defending Tibet against the Mongolians. A quiet and beautiful monastery, definately worth a visit on your way takes about half an hour.
