This temple is built by Wen Cheng Princess which was a Chinese Princes married to the then Tibet King Songtsen Gampo. Not a big temple and can be completed in half an hour.

Many don't visit this temple but I recommend that if you have time, do it. This is the sister temple of Jokhang temple, if you know the story behind it. I feel visiting Jokhang without visiting this one is incomplete. You must do both to...More

If you've seen Jokhang then no need to visit this one. Photos are not allowed inside. Small monastery.

Not too special from the outside and the same same inside. I'd rate it as must see only after the Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple.

You may see the followers do their praying in front of the plaza. Great scenery when you climb up to top of the building. Worth for a visit.
