The Bonpo Tenpa statue, from these earliest times, still stood in the temple until 1958. The original Bonpo Gonpa was later transformed into a Nyingmapa temple at an unknown date.

Why not travel to Kham and Amdo in place of Central Tibet (TAR)?

It is important to remember that Tibet areas consist of far more than just the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR). Basically Tibetan area is divided into three big regions based on differences such as dialect and lifestyle, U-tsang,Kham and Amdo among which U-tsang is now referenced as TAR or the Central Tibet. Visitors who have never visited Tibet  area are completely unaware of the existence of Amdo and Kham regions of the Tibetan Plateau, which are actually indispensable parts of whole Tibetan areas.
