Meidaizhao Lamasery is an important religious center of Baotou and a key travel spot in this area, located in Tumd Right Banner at the southern foot of Mt. Daqing, about 50 kilometers from the city of Baotou. The lamasery was first built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), being a Lamaism center in Inner Mongolia. It is of great importance for the study of Mongolian history of religion, architecture and arts in the Ming Dynasty. The layout of Meidaizhao Lamasery serves for three main purposes: temple of worshipping Buddha, royal residence, and protection from invasion. Meidaizhao is unique in its peculiar construction.

Meidaizhao Lamasery has unique architecture, covering an area of 40,000 square metres. It was constructed imitating the Han style architecture in Central China and combining with elements of Tibetan and Mongolian buildings. The Lamasery is surrounded by long and thick walls with a total length of 681 meters. Watchtowers are built at four corners of the walls. This design will help protect the city from outside invasion. After entering the gateway, travellers will see the Hall of Sakyamuni and there are colorful frescos vividly painted on both sides of the hall.
