  • Nechung was formerly the seat of the Tibetan State Oracle. The superior of the monastery, along with other "oracles" elsewhere in the world, came into trance (supposedly "possessed" by a deity, Pehar Gyalpo) to prophesy on the subjects before it. Given the "shamanic" nature of this oracle, the monastery that housed it is quite different from the others. In fact, it's as if the whole monastery was a "gongkhang" (protector Chapel). So it is entirely decorated with frescoes especially "gore" as usually are the gongkangs: demonic figures, garlands of human skin, etc. Interesting. The deserves a visit.

  • One of the most amazing monasteries and temples that I have seen! It is beautiful all through and through! 
  • 这个寺庙是在哲蚌寺买票后往右走的第一个寺庙。 寺庙不算大,但是很有生活气息。 很多藏族同胞在顶楼一边劳作一边唱歌。 那副画面非常怡人。 非常推荐可以去看一下!
