The path up to more of the temples of Jalshe Hermitage Bodhi Temple རྒྱལ་སྲས་རི་ཁྲོད་བྱང་ཆུབ་གླིང། 天门寺. The last picture has one of the doors of one of the small meditation rooms. I couldnt get a better angle since we were essentially climbing straight up at this point. The path is marked with prayer flags. While TIbetans hang prayer flags in many places, they are particularly common on mountains. Tibetan Buddhists believe that with each flap, the good intentions and karm from the prayers written on the flags will be spread across the land. You may also notice pieces of paper on the ground. While there was some litter (unfortunately), most of these are pieces of paper with prayers and auspicious symbols printed on them. They serve a similar purpose as the prayer flags.

Up behind Gonlung Shampa Lung is this small series of temples called Jalshe Hermitage Bodhi Temple རྒྱལ་སྲས་རི་ཁྲོད་བྱང་ཆུབ་གླིང། 天门寺. The Chinese name means “The temple of the gate of heaven." I can only assume it is called such because the chain of temples are built way up on the top of a tall mountain. This small temple is the first (and largest) building in the chain of temples as you ascend the mountain.

A furry friend at the Gonlung Shampa Lung monastery དགོན་ལུང་བྱམས་པ་གླིང་། 佑宁寺. This goat is probably property of the monastery, due to the orange prayer flag tied into his fur.

Prayer flags at the shrine to the local mountain god at Taktser སྟག་འཚེར། 红崖村, the birth place of the 14th Dalai Lama (the current one). Such sites are common on mountains across all of the Tibetan country side.

An old and weathered monk at the Gonlung Shampa Lung temple དགོན་ལུང་བྱམས་པ་གླིང་། 佑宁寺. Besides being known for its beautiful environment, this temple is also known for the fact that all of its monks are not Tibetan, but rather of the Monguor ethnic group (土族), a Mongolic ethnic group.

In the Tibetans eyes, Lhasa city was named after the Jokhang Temple after it was constructed.
There is the legend to explain foundation that the King threw his ring into the air to show where to build the temple. The ring fell into a lake and a stupa emerged from the water. Then the lake was filled by sand and soil carried by thousands of white rams, the main transport way at that time. This construction last over three years to finish in 64, and the temple at first was called Rasa, means the land of ram. After many Buddha enshrined, the temple changed the name to Jokhang, means the house of Buddha. And the city was named Lhasa, which means the land of Buddha. ~ Tibetdiscovery.com
