Wudangzhao Lamasery

The famed Wudangzhao Lamasery is situated approximately 70 kilometres northeast of Baotou. This impressive 250-year-old Lamasery is the biggest of its kind in western Inner Mongolia.

Wudangzhao, which literally means “Willow Lamasery“, is named such due to the wispy trees that encircle the temple area.

The entire compound boasts of six main halls, the most elaborate them being the Sugabi Prayer Hall. The extensive collection of Buddhist art is an integral feature at the Lamasery which includes ancient sculptures and frescos of gold, silver, wood and soil.
