About Ricuo Zhuowa Tower
Ricuo Zhuowa Tower is located at the foot of a small mountain in Ricuo village(日措村), it is said that a stone grew naturally from the ground. Actually there were two Towers, one day, a pregnant woman came here to sit and have a rest on one of the stone tower for a moment, as a result, the stone was seated to death, stopping its growing, only the other tower grew. Another legend was that a woman who is infertile could have a baby with a few laps around the tower. Believe it or not, but it is real that it contained the content of the original reproductive worship.
There was no temple at the tower site. In 1994, an overseas Nepali Tibetan donated more than 80,000 yuan as well as the local people collected money then the locals worked to build the Zhuowa pagoda temple(卓娃塔寺).
