Palha Lupuk Temple (Pàlālüfü Shíkü Si)

Palha Lupuk Temple (Pàlālüfü Shíkü Si) Review

Religious rock paintings dating from as early as the 7th century can be seen at this grotto-style temple. On the third floor you'll find an entrance to a cave with sculptures carved into the granite walls, mostly by Nepalese artists more than a millennium ago. Very few tourists visit, so if you're looking to escape the crowds, head here.
