Niechi Zanpu (Nyatri Tsenpo), the first king of Tufan, constructed it in the 2nd century B.C. Some historical records state: "No village was earlier than Yalongsuoka, no king was earlier than Niechi Zanpu, no palace was earlier than Yongbulakang, and no sutra was earlier than Banggongqiajia." This place occupies a significant position in the origins of Tibetan history and culture.
