Golden prayer drums row

Ancient, beautiful and peaceful place of prayer. We took a guided tour of this 1,300 year old Buddhist monastery to better understand the meaning of the places and artifacts.

Interesting temple away from tourists
Aug 2019
Ramoche is the same age as Jokhang temple, however, less popular with tourists. If you have free time in Lhasa, it is a good place to visit to see many Tibetan pilgrims without crowds of tourists. Also, here unlike in Jokhang you can see the ancient statue much better.

Smaller than some of the monasteries
Sep 2019
This is I think the oldest monastery in Lhasa, worth a visit if you're passing but because there are so many other more impressive monasteries (here there is basically a single hall, surrounded by a kora of prayer wheels) that I'd say if you miss it it's not a disaster

Smaller but still captivating. Be sure to go through doors and up stairs to properly enjoy this place.

Good place to go away from crowds of tourists

This temple is very important, but most of the tourists visit Jokhang temple, and only Tibetans visit Ramoche. If you are interested to see more locals, visit it.

The most authentic monastry yet
Jul 2018 • Couples
This visit was great. Very few tourists make it to Monastry/Temple nbr 3 (1 being Potala and 2 being Jokhang. So it wasn't packed. It is also a smaller monastery.so the vsiit is more personal. And you get to see the 8 year Buddah statue. Seems the statues got swapped to fool the Chinese in case they invaded and wanted the 12 year statue back. But I'll let your guide tell you the story. We were glad to have the guide because otherwise we would never have got to the inner sanctum which was half closed and needed the right diplomatic nudge to get in to see. Worth it. Please go.

Original place and newly decorated with fine wall paintings. Staying in the atmosphere of one of the most ancient Buddha statues is an incredible experience. Beautiful view from the rooftop

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.
