Standing by the highway on the east bank of the Yalong River in Nedong County, Sharman Prefecture, this monastery was built in the seventh century and has been repaired in various historical periods. A legend says after Songtsan Gambo established its capital in Lhasa, he came and stayed here together with Princess Wen Cheng who planted the willow trees around the monastery. The monastery houses a precious Thangka picture of a Buddha inlaid with pearls and gems.
(Tourists can take the mini-bus in Zetang Town to the monastery for two Yuan each or a motor tricycle for 15 Yuan or less. The admission for the monastery is 15 Yuan.)
