Favourite pictures from Gyantse (rGyal rtse)

Please quote the source if you are going to use these.

On the less travelled road to Gyantse.

View of the Fort (rDzong) from the village.

Outside the Kumbu (sKu 'bum).

The Śamvara maṇḍala on the top floor of the temple.

The Kāyastha Gayadhara, arguably the greatest translator ever to pose as Advayavajra (sitting on the left side of the maṇḍala).

What is there to add? Kāṇhu bhaïla kabālī... (singing dohās behind the maṇḍala)
