Photographer's Note

Himalaya Nyinmapa Buddhist Temple
-----------------------------------


A resident priest was kind enough to allow me to shoot this photo from the balcony his quarter inside the monastery's premises.

This monastery is not very old. Inside the temple there's a beautiful golden statue of Buddha and its walls have paintings depicting events from Lord Buddha's life. I shall post more pics shot at this monastery.

To preserve the art of Tibetan carpet weaving, the monastery runs the Thanka School Of Arts.

Just outside the premises are a few shops selling all kinds of Tibetan gift items. If you can bargain well, you will surely take home a lot of nice Tibetan items for really cheap.

Along with other things, I bought a set of Dorje Driblu, a bell and a beater for Rupees 200 (about $4.5) which the Tibetans use for meditation.
