Kerti Gompa information
Rising up on the Sìchuān side of White Dragon River is this monastery – otherwise dubbed the Sìchuān Monastery – built in 1413, home to around 700 monks, and composed of five temples and colleges. Try your luck catching a glimpse of student monks in class by visiting the monastery in the morning (6.30am to 8am and 11am to 1pm) or late afternoon (6pm to 8pm).
A short walk from the monastery stand small pavilions built over a brook whose waters power a round-the-clock revolving of prayer wheels housed inside – the ultimate in holiness! Just across from the entrance is a small Hui Muslim village with yellow houses and central mosque.
