Little Potala

Nicknamed ‘Little Potala’, Ganden Sumtsenling Monastery is closer to China proper than many other Tibetan monasteries, meaning the Sumtsenling has a history more intertwined with the Chinese than many of its siblings. When the Communist general He Long led one section of the Red Army through this area during his Long March of 1936, the monks reportedly donated needed supplies and helped direct the troops.
