Description

View of Gyantse showing Kumbum, the great chorten and the Palkor Chode Monastery, as seen from the dzong or fort. The whole length of the wall surrounding Gyantse can be seen in this image. The main routes into the town are clearly visible, as are the town boundaries and the cultivated fields on the right of the image. The view also gives a good idea of the town layout and the structure of domestic dwellings. The fields appear to be rich with vegetation as this photograph was taken before the harvest period

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
