You'll find this temple in the top north west corner inside the city walls. I'm amazed it's not a bigger attraction in Xian, as it really is so pretty and calming.
It was first built in 1705 but appears to have been rebuilt on a number of occasions since then. It's the only Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the whole province. The buildings aren't on a vast scale but they are very peaceful with prayer flags strung between then and numerous prayer wheels dotted around.
If you have any interest in temples or would just like a calm place to visit in Xian then this is a good option.
