Tsuglagkhang- McLeod GunjWednesday, December 05, 2007
This faced the main sanctum sanctorum...
....and held numerous little brightly polished lamps ready to be lit.
The main temple houses larger than life statues of the Buddha, Padmasambhava and Avalokiteshwara.
The hall is lined on either side by beautiful Tibetan Thangka paintings

The temple also houses one of the largest collections of sacred Tibetan texts.
Around the main temple the corridors are lined with prayer wheels that you can spin while you circumambulate around the sanctum.
I mentioned the tourists :)
Some monks you knew not to disturb
The others were gracious and actually smiled for you :)
