This is an incredible place to visit. It is not a tourist attraction(although we were warmly greeted by all we met), it is a very real monastery. The monks are so tolerant of outsiders coming in, but obviously some respect is expected in return. Absolutely...More
I may have just visited on a bad day as I didn’t feel I could get a good grasp on the history. Perhaps it was because there was no one collecting the entrance fee and no handout to explain what you were seeing. I tried...More
Went there on the 15th of the month during Tibetan new year, there were many local families there, busy time. The monastery is home to many important historical & religious relics. When I was there, no entrance fee was charged. There is one public bus...More

Very rich history that goes back a long long time. We visited on the eve of a 5 day celebrations and they are busy decorating the monastery. We're told that the place will be swarmed with thousands of devotees for the next 5 days.
Also known as Lhagang Gompa, the Tagong Temple is a nice example of a typical Tibetan monastery, with its statues, painted walls, thangkas, incents smells and plenty of monks dressed in their carmine robes. At the time of our visit there was a large crowd...More
It is simply good. A very typical Tibetan style temple. Many lamas in it. The statues and Buddhist wall paintings are marvelous. You can feel and see the spirituality of Tibetan people. I went here in early August. So no ceremony then.
Lhagang temple(Tagong) is one of the biggest sakya temple in the region.specially worth to visit during the summer festival, when you can see the cham dances
unfortunately the first picture shows aother monastery i think in kangding.

Hi there, I was there recently. I traveled to the monastery from Kangding city. If you are departing from Kangding, you can take the public bus outside Kangding bus station (the main one) daily around 8:30 am, which costs 20 yuan and takes about 2 hours 30 mins to 3 hours to reach Tagong town (can be a bit bumpy). When you get off the bus, you are right in front of the monastery. Alternatively you can take a shared car from Kangding, which would costs about 60 yuan.
I do not know if you can live with the monks inside the monastery, but they are friendly so worth a try. There is a guesthouse outside the monastery (in the corner across from the parking lot). Good luck!
