The Dzogang Monastery is under renovation conducted by local Tibetan residents and monks in Dzogang County, Chamdo Prefecture, Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR), with a total of 100,000 yuan earmarked by the Bureau of TAR Cultural Relics.
"It is a custom to whitewash the monastery at the end of the year and local farmers come here to help voluntarily in off farming season. We started the renovation from September and will draw to a close in about 15 days. This year, our major tasks are to whitewash, reinforce walls and build a new exhibition hall to display cultural relics of the monastery," Said Tenzin Namgyal, Turku of the Dzogang Monastery.

Among hundreds of people busy inside the monastery were monks, Tibetan youths, as well as Tibetan women working together till sunset. "My brother is a lama in this monastery. I've worked here for about 10 days, and will keep coming till it is finished," said 25-year-old Tashi, a local resident in Dzogang County.

Sitting by the side of National Road 318, the Dzogang monastery with an area of 34,105 square meters, is the largest monastery at Temtok Village of Dzogang County, Chamdo Prefecture among the three main monasteries in the county. 

At present, there are altogether 156 monks living in this Yellow sect monastery.
