The Monastery is beautiful . The "debates" by the monks were the highlight, I suppose, although I had no idea what was going on, other than an overview by our guide.

The Monastery is very beautiful. The most interesting thing was the "discussions" of the monks and the understanding of their meaning thanks to our local guide.

In my opinion, the main activity which differentiate this monastery from the others is the daily held here where you can see lots of young Tibetan monks holding debates here. Although we can really understand them, it is still interesting to observe this tradition.

It was amazing! It is an actual monastery so the Monks were all around us. The interior was very interesting.
