In the 18th century the 7th Dalai lama Kelsang Gyasto took treatment bath in a spring here and soon a palace was built for him, which is called Kelsang Palace. There is also smaller palace called Uyap palace and this was used by the Dalai Dalas when they watched Tibetan Opera dance during the Shorten or (Yoghurt festival) and other events.
