Located 30 kilometers east of the Tu Autonomous County of Huzhu, 65 kilometers from Xining, Gun-lung Monastery was established in 1604, the 32nd year during the reign of Emperor Wanli of the Ming Dynasty. The monastery was first run by Gyese (Rgyalsras), the Seventh Living Buddha, and is now run by the 13th Living Buddha. The Qing emperor granted the living Buddha the title of Hutuktu, who have enjoyed high position. Religious activities, such as dance kam (mchams), and displaying the image of Buddha, are held during the 14th and 15th days of the first month on Tibetan calendar. Another grand traditional religious activity is held during the 7th and 9th days of the sixth month to commemorate Sakyamuni.
