Yemar Monastery (11th century). Tsang Province, 1994.
View of the temple. The outer structure is one of the oldest and best conserved of the early monastic communities founded at the beginning of the second diffusion of Buddhism in Tibet in the late 10th century. The great Tibetologist Giusepe Tucci visited the site in the 1940s and made a full photographic record of the remarkable stucco sculptures and wall paintings in the three chapels.
