Quote and image directly above from Shanghai Daily.comA road divides a town of wooden cabins into two parts in Serthar in southwest Sichuan Province. On the left is where nuns live, while on right are houses for monks. The Serthar Buddhist Institute, also known as Larung Gar Buddhist Academy, is sited in the Larung Valley near the town of Serthar. Despite its remote location, at an altitude of 4,000 meters in the Karze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Sichuan and more than 800 kilometers by dirt road from the nearest city, the institute has grown from a handful of disciples to become one of the largest centers for the study of Tibetan Buddhism in the world, numbering nearly 10,000 monks, nuns, and lay disciples.
