Tsedang

Tsedang sits on the south bank in the middle section of the YarlungTsangbo River with a moderate
climate at an altitude of 3,600 meters.

Tsedang is the birthplace of earliest Tibetans who were said to be the offspring of a monkey and a
demoness, so Tsedang literally means “monkey’s playground”.

Here’s a legend . People said that genius had lived here long before human being resided in Tibet. After
the Gods of the genius got married, they had six sons who became the ancestors of the six tribes of Tibet respectively. Tsedang is the hometown
of tribes and an important place of origin of the Tibetan culture.

jewels of Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha. It is renowned for the characteristic art of its buildings and the
