The Dongzhulin Monastery is situated in Benzilan Town that is 105 kilometers away from Shangri-la.With orderly-distributing architecture complex, the lofty monastery can be mistakenly deemed a town when looked from the distance.

 
The Dongzhulin Monastery was built in 1667,also famous as one of the "thirteen most well-known monasteries", and can hold 2,000 monks sitting and chanting scriptures.
. Due to the mountain monsoon climate, with an elevation of 3000 meters, it is not cold in winter and not hot in summer. The Dongzhulin Monastery started to build in 1667 with only 16 monks. At the end of Qing Dynasty, there were 700 monks and 10 living Buddha. The monastery has been destroyed and rebuilt in 1985. At present, the number of monks reaches 300 with 4 living Buddha. 
 
Dongzhulin Monastery has garnered quite a few precious cultural relics. There are gilded Maitreya Buddha, statue of White Drolma, Buddhas of Three Worlds, Yama (the ruler of the hell), Manjusri (Wenshu), 18 Arhats statues and Thakang scroll paintings depicting Buddhist stories. There are also a great number of Buddhist stupas and religious instruments and props etc. Additionally, the monastery houses a huge Thangka scroll painting on which one can find an image of a Buddhist Guardian. The Thakang scroll painting is 8.5 meters long and 5.2 meters wide, and is only exhibited on the occasion of Gedong Festival held on December on the Tibetan calendar.
