update:April 13,2023

The Tholing Monastery has graced Zanda County in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region for more than a thousand years.

Built by the king of the Guge Kingdom in 996, it was the oldest Buddhist temple in the Ngari (or Ali) Prefecture.  

Tholing means "hovering in the sky forever" in Tibetan, which indicates the imposing position occupied by the monastery. It is reported that the Tholing Monastery is famous for its murals.
