This shows the view of Larung Gar Buddhist Academy in Sertar, Sichuan, China. The scene of destroyed buildings near the road is conducted by China government due to political and religious persecution. Larung Gar Buddhist Academy is a spectacular monastery which is a famous for the mountainside covered with red houses where Buddhists live. Despite its remote location, it grew from a handful of disciples gathering in Khenpo's home, to be one of the largest and most influential centers for the study of Tibetan Buddhism in the world, numbering to nearly 10,000 monks, nuns, and lay disciples by the year 2000. However in 2016, reports emerged from Tibet that there was mass demolition drive by China Government which the authority claims there are fire safety issues. The freedom of monks are suppressed and forced to leave. It may be the last scene of Sertar.
