The construction of Surmang Temple is amazing. Somehow it reminds me of some North European architecture style.


Monsieurma...The architecture of this monastery is not very common in Tibet. It is almost only found in the Kham regions found in Nangchen, Jomda and Chamdo counties and only in Karma Kagyupa sect monasteries.


Hello Losang,
Thank you for the information about Surmang Namgyaltse. The architecture of the Monastery seams unusual to me.
