Walking on the road to the Guge kingdom ruins of Tibet, I am full of curiosity and doubt about the death of this kingdom.Back then, the Guge kingdom is very strong, its destruction is still a mystery.

Now stand in the wall of Tibet Guge Kingdom City , looking to the north, that kind of feeling as if still fighting. Zanda County in the evening is very beautiful,standing on the top of the mountain,actually,I do not feel the beauty of eyes, instead, a beautiful feeling lunged, like a ghost town, everywhere was full of soldiers.

From brilliant to perish, unknown mystery


The ruins of the Guge kingdom is on a hill in Zanda County village,is one of the first batch of key cultural relics protection units in the country.There are more than 300 caves and house , 3 pagodas (more than10 meters high) ,4 temples, 2 halls and 2 underground tunnels,the ruins was divided into upper, middle and lower three layers,in turn, they are the palace, the temple and the folk house.

Guge was founded in the 10th century. Its capitals were located at Tholing  and Tsaparang.Nyi ma mgon, a great-grandson of Langdarma, the last monarch of the Tibetan Empire, left insecure conditions in Ü-Tsang in 910. He established a kingdom in Ngari (West Tibet) in or after 912 and annexed Puhrang and Guge. He established his capital in Guge.

Nyi ma mgon later divided his lands into three parts. The king’s eldest son dPal gyi mgon became ruler of Mar-yul (Ladakh), his second son bKra shis mgon received Guge-Puhrang, and the third son lDe gtsug mgon received Zanskar. bKra shis mgon was succeeded by his son Srong nge or Ye shes ‘Od (947–1024 or (959–1036), who was a renowned Buddhist figure. In his time a Tibetan lotsawa from Guge called Rinchen Zangpo (958–1055), after having studied in India, returned to his homeland as a monk to promote Buddhism. Together with the zeal of Ye shes ‘Od, this marked the beginning of a new diffusion of Buddhist teachings in western Tibet. In 988 Ye shes ‘Od took religious vows and left kingship to his younger brother Khor re.There have been seven hundred years of splendid history of civilization of the Guge Kingdom, it dies is still a mystery. It is said that in 1630, the Western neighboring ethnic groups and the Guge clan who launched the invasion of Ladakh, the Guge Kingdom perish.
