Located in the southwest of Jishi Town in the Salar Autonomous County of Xunhua, the Former Residence of the Tenth Pancen Lama is a compound building which is complex with one-story houses in the south and three-story structures in Tibetan style.

The mountain was known as Chiling Range in ancient China. There is a legend that in the Tang Dynasty, Emperor Taizong granted Princess Wencheng a mirror named the Sun and the Moon before she married King Songtsen Gampo of Tibet. The mirror was said to see Chang´an, then capital, and her relatives. When she passed through Chiling Range, the princess threw the
Sun and the Moon onto the mountain.

These buildings are brightly painted, elegant, grandeur and luxuriously decorated. In the north are chapels, which enshrine the dead of the Panchen Lama.
