Deqen Galsang Pozhang – Brief Introduction

Deqen Galsang Pozhang is the summer palace of Panchen Lamas. It was originally built at Gonggyue Lingka. It was built by Seventh Panchen Lama in 1844 (the second year during the regime of Emperor Guangxu of Chinese Qing Dynasty). There are chanting assemblies and Dhammapalas in Gonggyue Lingka. It was destroyed by the strong flood in 1954. The central government allocated half a million RMB for the restoration of Gonggyue Lingka. And it was changed to Deqen Galsang Pozhang and also named New Palace.
