Half Day Ani Tsankhung Nunnery Tour In Lhasa
Ani Tsankhung Nunnery came into existence in the 7th century during the reign of the great Tibetan king Songsten Gampo. Buddhists nuns have been residing inside since the 12th century. The original function of the place is a meditation chamber. The nunnery lies on the street parallel and north of Chingdol Dong Lu in the historic old Lhasa quarter. It houses a beautiful image of Chenrezi, the multi-armed Bodhisattva of Compassion. It is a magically tranquil place in the bustling town. Travelers especially interested in a quiet and intimate religious site will enjoy this off-the-beaten-path tour.
