Ganden monastery, located about 45km east of Lhasa, is a monastery of the Geluk order. It was founded in 1409 by Tsongkhapa on the Gokpori ridge of Mount Wangkur. After later additions, the monastery came to support more than 5,000 monks.

During the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s, the monastery was destroyed. In the 1990s, the buildings of the monastery were rebuilt and renovated, and 1,660 square meters of murals have been restored over the last four years.

The Samye monastery is the most popular destination for travelers in Central Tibet. Surrounded by barren mountains and dramatic sand dunes and approached via a river crossing, the beauty of the monastery and its location tempts many visitors to stay longer than they intended.
