Tibet is a place with deep ties to Buddha. When you come to Lhasa, in addition to the Potala Palace, there are several temples that you must visit. The Sera Monastery and Drepung Monastery in Lhasa are worth our time to walk slowly. After arriving at Drepung Monastery in the afternoon, after getting off the bus from the ticket gate, it takes a long way to reach the gate of Drepung Monastery. Because of the high altitude, it feels a bit hard to walk.
Drepung Monastery is located in col on the southern slope of Genpeiwuzi Mountain, about ten kilometers west of Lhasa. It is the largest Tibetan monastery of Tibetan Buddhism. There are 141 manors and more than 540 ranches. After entering from the main entrance, we climbed up the steps.
Speaking of the name of Drepung Monastery, it has something to do with the appearance of the temple. Together with Ganden Monastery and Sera Monastery, it is called the three major monasteries in Lhasa. Located at the foot of Gengpi Wuzi Mountain in the western suburbs of Lhasa, the entire monastery is large in scale and the white buildings covering the hillside, looking like a huge pile of rice from a distance, hence the name Drepung. Only when standing tall and looking into the distance can you truly understand the meaning of this name.
The more you go up, the wider your field of vision. Personally, this is also a good observation deck overlooking the entire Lhasa city, and you can see the whole picture of Lhasa city from a distance. Against the backdrop of the blue sky, white clouds and mountains, the whole city is very beautiful, which is why the air in Lhasa is fresh.
Drepung Monastery is very lively every year, the most solemn Snowdon Festival. As the prologue of the festival, the exhibition of Buddha in Drepung Monastery is the most eye-catching ceremony. At 8 o'clock in the morning, on the mountainside behind the Drepung Monastery, under the first rays of dawn, accompanied by the solemn and solemn sound of the Dharma horns, a 500-square-meter giant Sakyamuni woven with colorful silk The statue of the nun slowly showed a peaceful face…tens of thousands of believers and deeply infected tourists all clasped their hands and worshiped.
