Xilituzhao Temple   

100 meters away from Dazhao Temple, Xilituzhao is the largest Lamasery in Hohhot. It was originally a small temple built in 1585, and expanded to the current scale through the reconstruction in Qing Dynasty.

Xilituzhao Temple is unique mix of Chinese and Tibetan architecture. The temple was the official residence of the living Buddha since 1735. Dajing Hall (Buddha Worshiping Hall), the main building in the temple, is resplendent and embodies Tibetan style. To the east of the hall, there stands a white dagoba at a height of 15 meters carved in white marble stones. Some religious activities are held every year in the Xilituzhao Temple.
