Sangdui Town has great scenery with vast pastures that surround the road. Villages, farmhouses and flowing streams will be faintly visible from afar in a harmonious and peaceful sight. Dus Gsum Mkhyen Pa said of this place, in 1144 C.E., "I came here after traveling all around Tibet. The scenery here is beautiful. The grass is lush, the animals flourish, and the light of the Buddha shines forth. I would like to build a pagoda here to achieve merit."
