2020 Langmu Si Festival

2020 Langmu Si Festival is held in Langmusi, which means the monasteries in this region. It is located about 90 km from Luqu County on the main Gansu highway to Sichuan. The town was named after an ancient legend about a fairy turning to stone and later into a mountain. The town hosts two monasteries, facing each other over the river and bottom of the valley. It houses approximately 1,200 monks, and was originally built as an academic institute for lamas studying Tibetan Buddhism. However, it gradually lost importance when a sharp contrast was formed with the growing popularity of the Labrang Monastery of Xiahe. The festival of Langmu Si is called “Monlam,” which is the same as the one in Aba county. It is also one of the greatest religious festivals in the eastern Tibet in Amdo and Kham. During festivals, monks and pilgrims from different areas of Tibetan Cultural Area gathering to Langmu Si for praying in front of Shakyamuni’s image as if it were a living Buddha
