The Monastery is situated in the middle section on the west side of the southern road toward Mangshi, Dehong Prefecture.
It was said that the Monastery was first built during the reign of the Qing Emperor Kangxi by the Mangshi chief’s oldest son who gave up an official career for the life of being a monk. The Monastery got its name because there was a bodhi tree in front of the monastery. With unique designs and exquisite workmanship, the main hall is characterized by the fusion of architectural styles of the Dai, Han, and Ancient-India.
