UPDATE Yushu - Jigten Sumgon

Numerous little stupas lined uphill

Jigten Sumgon

It is half an hour drive out of Yushu town enroute to Thrangu Monastery. Jigten Sumgon's place was born out of Minam Rinpoche's vision and he suggested to Drikung Holiness, Chetsang Rinpoche of carving a statue of Jigten Sumgon from a huge rock which Holiness immediately commissioned someone to do it. It was completed in year 2007.
