24th day of 10th Lunar month

This is to commemorate and condole rate the death of Jamchen Choje, the founder of Sera monastery as well as one of the famous disciples of Tsongkapa. People make huge numbers of butter lamb offering both in side the houses, monasteries, temples or on the roof top or windows of the houses, monasteries, or temples and at the same time they murmur the prayer to Jamchen Choje. In Lhasa, people gather in front of Jokang temple and walk around Jokang temple and make butter lamb and incense offering. If you travel to Tibet during this period of time, you will enjoy the most beautiful scenery and cultural activities of Tibet in the winter time so Tibet winter tour is another choice of your Tibet tour.
