Riwoche Tsuglhakhang

Founded in 1276 by Sangye On, who relocated to Kham after the death of this master Sangye Yarjon (1203-72), the third leader of the Talung order, Riwoche started as an offshoot of Talung Monastery in U. Eventually it grew to eclipse its parent monastery and it now ranks as one of Tibet's most impressive monasteries. It is still the more vibrant of the two, retains the characteristic red, white and black vertical stripes of the Talung school, and is home to 305 monks.
