Built in the 8th century, Samye Monastery was the first Buddhist monastery to be founded in Tibet. Samye is famous for its sacred mandala design: the central temple symbolizes the legendary Mount Meru, center of the universe. The historic monastery is also notable as the site of the "Great Debate" (792-794) between sects of Buddhism. Samye is a popular pilgrimage destination for Tibetan Buddhists, some of whom travel on foot for weeks to reach it.
