Located at the foot of Mount Gephel, just five kilometres from the western suburbs of Lhasa, Drepung is the largest of all Tibetan monasteries. It is famous for its weekly debates among the monks. They welcome visitors and its a sight not to be missed. Sadly, very sadly, more than a third of the old monastic town was destroyed after the communist Chinese arrived in Lhasa in 1951 to annex Tibet. Fortunately, some key buildings including the four colleges, the Tsokchen and the Dalai Lamas’ residence were saved.
