Pictures of Tongren area
The Tongren area is famous for its Thangkas artists. It is the art of painting, sewing, firing a religious image on a support in general of fabric. This work must then be consecrated by a lama.
The city itself is a large village, mainly Tibetan, where the vast Longwusi monastery dating from the Yuan (13th and 14th century) is located.
In the surroundings you can also visit the Wutunsi Monastery which features several halls dedicated to the deities and a superb stupas decorated with multiple colorful statues.
