“amazing butter sculptures”
Review of Dongzhulin Temple

Dongzhulin Temple
Reviewed 28 November 2012

Well. I have seen loads of buddhist temples in China, Tibet and Bhutan. This one is more like the Bhutanese ones, like a fortress commanding the hillside. It had the most amazing butter ornaments i've ever seen at the main altar. Unfortunately no photographing inside allowed. The village around it is worth a stroll, and the location up on the rock is a sight in itself.
At certain times the lamas hold spiritual mask dance performances, but we didn't get to see it. There is a display of the dance costumes though.

Perched on the high ridge this temple is simply amazing with views of the canyons below. Where eagles dare comes to mind (as with other reflections!).

It's a beautiful drive from the Hotel to the Temple and the visit was most impressive
