The Taer Lamasery

As it is one of China's six biggest lamaseries of the yellow sect and the birthplace of its founder, Tsong Khapa, the Taer Lamasery is a fine combination of Han and Tibetan architecture covering an area of more than 40 hectares. The original construction began in the Jia Jing period in the 39th year of the Ming Dynasty (1560A.D.) and the lamasery now consists of the Great Temple of Golden Tile, the Lesser Temple of Golden Tile, the Great Meditation Hall, Eight Stupas, the Longevity Temple and the Nine room Hall, to mention a few. The butter sculptures, murals and appliques are known as its unique "three wonders" of art. In the lamasery there are 11 living Buddha and 560 lamas in service there. Special ceremonies take place on January 15th, April 15th, June 7th and November 23rd according to the lunar calendar.
