Bodhisattva Maitreya Temple, Tabo

The Bodhisattva Maitreya Temple, also known as the Byams-Pa Chen-po Lha-khang, is divided into a hall, a sanctum and a vestibule. A 20 ft tall statue of the Maitreya Buddha, also known as the ‘Laughing Buddha’ or the ‘Buddha of the Future’, is the centre of attraction of this temple.

Murals, including the ones that depict the monastery of Tashi-Chunpo and Lhasa's Potala Palace, add to the attraction of the temple.
