Tibet, Pray wheels at Phalcho monastery, Gyantse

The Gyantse sacred area is dominated by the Kumbum; a stupa like image temple founded in 1427 that takes the form of a three dimensional mandala. Within the 77 small chambers that encircle the structure are many elaborate paintings and sculptures. As one walked around and up onto this structure the sacred imagery becomes increasingly complex and culminates in the upper chambers with a series of massive mandalas.
