Founded in 996 AD, it is the oldest temple complex in the Tibetan cultural area to have been preserved in its original state. Tabo's main temple, the Temple of the Enlightened Gods, is a unique gesamtkunstwerk. Sculptures and paintings dating back one thousand years that wer e executed in an incomparably delicate style, probably by Indian artists, together form a sort of horizontal walkable mandala.
