  Gandan monastery, prayerwheels
by sachara

After you entered the main entrance of the large complex of the Gandan Monastery, you will see a path leading to the right to a courtyard with two temples, the Orchidary Temple and golden Dedenpovaran Temple.

In the courtyard are also prayerwheels. It is the custom that you round the prayerwheels always clockwise. It's not allowed taking photographs inside the temples, but you can visit the temples, also during the ceremonies.

Directions: 1,5 KM north west of the Square

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
