The Labrang Monastery is located at the foot of Phoenix Mountain, northwest of Xiahe county in the Gannan Tibetan nationality autonomous prefecture in Gansu province.

As a propitious place in the hearts of Tibetans it stands by the Daxia River and faces Dragon Mountain.

The monastery's architectural layout is Tibetan in style. Its symbols are the White Towers in the northeast and in the northwest. The grand sutra and Buddha halls are in the northwestern section, centered around the Grand Sutra Hall. Other halls are spread out in a shape similar to a crescent moon.
