In the afternoon visit Tabo monastery. Spread over an area of almost 3000 sq. m., surrounded by a thick mud wall, the Gompa is divided into three buildings with the middle structure being most interesting and important. 
Tabo (also spelt as Ta-pho) was established about a thousand years ago and was a part of Western Tibet School which originally designed different mandalas in the form of statues hanging on the walls of the gompa to meditate upon. However 800 years ago with the arrival of Guru Padmasambhava in Tibet, and with the introduction of his new sect - Gelug-pa, the old philosophy of Western Tibet schools was lost and their unique philosophical practices almost died. Now Tabo is the only living monastery outside Tibet depicting similar mandalas on the walls of the Dukhang. Tabo is also the home of the incarnated H.H. the Dalai Lama's junior tutor. 
Tabo has seen a lot of physical changes in the last 20 years. A new gompa and a school has been built for the young monks as well as civil administration buildings, local schools, agricultural works and electrification have changed the character of the village drastically. The combined impact of the very impressive government effort to improve the various aspects of the communal life in the region has had, none the less, an unfortunate impact on the cultural geography.
