Tsongkhapa is the founder of the Gelug Buddhism and is also a Buddhism theorist. The Gelug Buddhism was founded based on theories by Tsongkahapa. He has made great contribution to the development of Buddhism by his teaching, writing, theory studies and scriptures. At the same time he left precious legacy like his volumes of teaching and scriptures when he passed away.

Some were painted on cloth, some were on the wall, some were on woods. These frescoes are created a little exaggerated by more importantly they are vivid and lively.
