Tibetan nuns in Beijing for training, health check

Twenty Tibetan Buddhist nuns have started a one-week training program in Beijing that will also involve visits to world-famous tourist attractions as well as health checks, according to the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) Friday.

"The federation has long been caring about women of different ethnic groups and from different walks of life in Tibet. The program will give them a chance to visit China's inland," an official in charge of training with the ACWF said.

The program is jointly held by the center and the Tibetan Women's Federation.

In addition to studies about national ethnic and religious policies, these nuns, mostly from the nunnery management committees in Tibet, will also visit the Beijing-based High-level Tibetan Buddhism College of China, the official said.

They will also receive health checks, and visit the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the "Bird Nest" stadium and other tourist attractions in Beijing, according to the official.
