Tholing Monastery Travel Guide

Brief Introduction
Tholing Monastery is located in northwest to the county town of Zhada County, in the Ngari Region of western Tibet.

Tholing Monastery was built by the second king of the Guge Kingdom in 996, and it is the oldest Buddhist temple in the region, with the history of 900 years. It has suffered much destruction, especially during the Chinese Culture Revolution (1968-1977). The monastery has been renovated in the recent years. The rear hall has been renovated to what it used to be when it was built.

The groups of buildings here include halls, monks´ residences and pagodas, among which the most worth seeing are the Jiasha Hall, Red Hall, White Hall and the 108 Pagodas.

Features
Tholing Monastery has played an important role in the history of Tibet. Craftsmen from India, Nepal and Ladakh worked hard to construct the monastery, which then combined the styles of construction and those of building the Buddhists statues of the three places.
