Samye Monastery (Tibetan: བསམ་ཡས་, Chinese: 桑耶寺)

Samye (Tibetan: བསམ་ཡས་, Chinese: 桑耶寺) is the first Buddhist monastery built in Tibet where many scholars got together and translated the Buddhist scriptures and canons from Sanskrit into Tibetan. It is also called as “Pél Samye Mingyur Lhun Gyi Drukpé Tsuk lak Khang”.
Samye Monastery is laid out on the shape of a giant mandala, with the main temple representing the legendary Mount Meru in the centre. Other buildings stand at the corners and cardinal points of the main temple, representing continents and other features of tantric Buddhist cosmology.


In corners are 4 chörtens - white, red, green (or blue) and black. There are 8 main temples:
