      Yungbulakang is the palace for the 1st Tube King Niechi in the Yalong River Valley .It is also called “the Mosher and Song Holy Hal Yungbulakang, built in the second century B.C,is standing on the top of a hill on the rest of a hill on the east bank of the Yalong River in the southeast of Naidong county.The castle can be divided into front and back 2 parks .The front part is a 3-storey building ,while the black part is a castle like tall building . sightseeing begins with these white monastic buildings piled up on the hillside.  Walking up to the hill is a pleasant thing, an easy break from the solemn ambience inside the halls and chapels.  At the plat roof of hillside, you can have very good views of the whole Lhasa city and the distant mountains.

      A fine,tapering finger of a structure that sprouts from a craggy ridge overlooking the pathwork fields of the Yarlung Valley,  Yungbulakang is considered the oldest building in Tibet .At least that is the claim for the original structure-most of what can be seen today dates from 1982.It is still a remarkably impressive sight,with a lovely setting.

     The founding of   Yungbulakang stretches back into ledend and myth.The standard line is that it was built for King Nyentri Tsenpo,a historic figure who has long since blurred into mythology.Legend has him descending from the heavens and being received as a king by the people of the Yarlung Valley.More than 400 Buddhist holy texts are said to have fallen from the heavens at  Yungbulakang in the 5th century.Murals at   Yungbulakang depict the magical arrival of the texts.
