The Kejia Temple, close to Nepal and India, is a famous temple of Sakya Sect of Tibetan Buddhism. The senior monk Lotsawa Rinchen Sangpo directed the building of the temple in 996. The construction of the temple is magnificent with a lot of big and small halls for scriptures and marvelous frescos. In 2001, the Kejia Temple was appraised as the state-level important protection unit of cultural relic. Some 15 million yuan (2.3 million US dollars) were invested to restore the two big halls of the temple and the protection work will soon be carried out to mend the frescos. (Xinhua/Tao Xiyi)
