I visited in the morning, it was cloudy, but still a fair number of people. 30 RMB fee, same price as the Sichuan Monastery on the other side of the river. The buildings are in good shape, obviously remodeled, but very well done. Many building you must remove your shoes to enter. Was lucky to see some young monks performing... More

This temple has clearly been renovated. However, it still feels really authentic & don't have to pay for every door you go through. I was lucky enough while here to stumble among young & a group of older monks chanting at different points in the evening. They were also preparing a sand art mandala for the days following and invited... More

Not sure why it is labelled as a temple when it is a Tibetan monastery, a complex of buildings housing aspects of Tibetan religious beliefs! Located in the town of Langmusi where half of it belongs to Sichuan Province and the other to Gansu Province, Langmu Monastery is a very busy attraction for locals and tourists! It is run by...

It is unfortunate that TripAdvisor lists "Langmu Temple" as if there is only one temple in town, but there are actually two distinct, independent temples with very different architectural structure (not to mention separate entrance fees). Serti gompa: the shiny gold temples to the north. Kerti gompa: the wooden, seemingly run-down temples to the south. Kerti is the original temple... More

We were there between 11 and 12 and everything was closed. The monks were very unfriendly and seemed to be more intrested in their iphone than anything else. Not worth the 30 RMB!!!

Langmusi is not just a temple, the town itself is called Langmusi (which means Langmu Temple). It is a very small town, and yet half of it is in Gansu Province, and half in Sichuan Province. Half of the people here are Tibetans, and half are Muslims. You can see both Buddhist monastaries and Muslim mosques in the little town.... More

I assume this is the monastry on the Gansu side of town which is the one with the golden roofs. It is a great place to visit and the main hall is absolutely beautiful.

This is much smaller than its big brother is Xiahe, but is worth the visit. In the morning several temples were open, and saw monks praying. Expect also many places to be closed, specially is the afternoon. However, the decorations outside are also very nice. Some are a bit of a climb, but the views are worth it. Becarefull with... More

The Tibetan Losar, the 2013 new year of Tibet falls on Feb of 2013. I had a chance to visit Langmu Monastery (or some call Langmu Temple) in southern Gansu. The original plan was a visit to the Kirti Gompa in Aba in Sichuan. We planned to join in the ceremonies of mask dances, Buddha display and a Buddha kora... More
