Tar Monastery

Tar Monastery is located in Huangzhong County 25 km from Xining, the capital of Qinghai and was built in 1560.
As one of the six greatest monasteries of a Tibetan Buddhism sect called Gelug, Tar Monastery lies in a mountain cove and its architecture harmoniously combined ancient Chinese and Tibetan style. Including the Greater and Lesser Golden-Tiled Temples, Grand Sutra Hall, there are 9,000 rooms in total. All these rooms were well-conceived planed and delicate decorated. Butter sculptures, frescoes and padded embroidery are the three treasures of the monastery.
