Visit the Tashilunpo Monastery, home to the Panchen Lama, a ranking spiritual figure second only to the Dalai Lama in importance. Founded in 1447, the monastery is a large compound of chapels, courtyards, and byways. Within the monastery is a tall, 75-foot (23 meter) statue of the Maitreya Buddha, finished with gold leaf, as well as a population of resident monks. Like the Potala in Lhasa, Tashilunpo houses several impressive funeral chapels for the Panchen Lamas, including that of the 10th, who passed away in 1989 and whose chortem, or stupa, cost an estimated $8 million to build.
