Wudangzhao Monastery

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Wudangzhao Monastery is one of the popular tourist attractions in China that has sustained its cultural related notion through years. Located 70 kilometers to the southwest direction of Baotou, the monastery rests on a hill slope. The name Wudang means willow tree and Zhao means monastery in Mongolian language.
The Wudangzhao Monastery was built during the reign of Emperor Kangxi in the Qing dynasty and is the only intact Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Inner Mongolia. This monastery resembles the Tashilhunpo Monastery in Shigatse of Tibet. It is a vast complex and was used to be the residence of the highest lama in Inner Mongolia.
Although the structure of the monastery does not match its former glory, the Wudangzhao Monastery is a popular travel destination for visitors and globe trotters from all over the world who appreciate its beautiful landscapes, rich culture, delicious local cuisine, hospitality and wellbeing.
