      Drepung Monastery

      Drepung lies 8 km west of Lhasa on a main road, then 3km north on a steep, unpaved road. Its name means Rice Heap after its jumble of white monastic buildings piled up on the hillside. It used to be world's largest monastery with more than 10,000 monks, and now still Tibet's largest monastery.

Every year in early August, Tibetans celebrate their major festival - Shoton, the Yogurt Festival. The most important event of this festival - Giant Buddha Show is held in Drepung Monastery.
