Litang ( ལི་ཐང། ,高城镇), China (中国)

Located at an elevation of 4000 meters, Litang is one of the highest "bigger" towns in the world. Its one of the main centres of Tibetan culture in the Garzê Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture (དཀར་མཛེས་བོད་རིགས་རང་སྐྱོང་ཁུལ་, 甘孜藏族自治州).
The Ganden Thubchen Choekhorling Monastery, shown on the picture, is the biggest in town and is a place of historical significance, as some Dalai Lamas have been born here and it has been said that the 7th Dalai Lama has resided there.

Ganden Tubchen Chokhorling, was founded in 1580 by the third Dalai Lama, and rebuilt recently in the aftermath of the Cultural Revolution, under the guidance of Litang Kyabgon Tulku Palden Dorje and Shodruk Tulku. The reconsecration was carried out in conjunction with the Litang Horse Festival in July 1996. Entering the main gate from the town, there are five main buildings within the precincts of the monastery. The assembly hall known as Jamchen Chokhorling and the Shakya Tubpa Podrang occupy the centre, to the left a large four storey Tsongkhapa Lhakhang and higher up the hill are the temples Serkhang Nyingba and Lhakhang Karpo. www.footprinttravelguides.com/c/2848/tibet/&Action=pr...
