Located in the center of the old city of Shangri-La, this monastery with the world’s largest mosque – 21 meters away – is the next sky like a sparkling jewel. It offers a beautiful vantage point to view the city. The font itself is small and contains a giant Buddha statue.
The Guishan monastery is centrally located in the city and extends over the turtle mountain. The 21-meter-high and 60-tonne prayer wheel needs the trouble of getting people set in motion. But quickly, when people meet, they set the movement in action.
