It is also one of the most complete castles in the Tongren area.

The inner lanes of the castle are scattered with stars and a width of 2 meters, and only one person can pass through them. While standing in the narrow, quiet and mazelike lanes of the castle, one is treading on the blue stone slab, which makes one feel like one is in the days of the war. Nearby is tall mottled city wall and a quiet courtyard, occasionally a lilac or two out of the wall, and people as if outside the world. Every door on the top of the set of the warp, is the unique place of the castle architecture.

I don’t know why there are many temples in Tongren, but the development and changes of various styles of construction and why Tongren’s local scenery has enhanced different cultural backgrounds.
it''s nice to walk to there (from wutuxia temple) but the temples are not specially beautiful. Nice views from the valley.
To be honest, during this trip to Qinghai, I visited a lot of temples, and my favorite is this temple here. Other big temples are mainly based on historical backgrounds, and here is definitely dominated by art and literature. The largest pagoda in Guomari Temple, the colors are so beautiful, we took a lot of photos on the pagoda, and I really don’t want to go. There is also a master who is painting thangka, introducing us to the Kalachakra, and it is the first time to feel the artistic charm of Tibetan culture.
