Tibet: Sakya Town (Cityscape Murals)

Sakya Cityscape Murals | Sakya Monastery & Town | Sakya Main Page

These murals depict the town of Sakya prior to 1959. They are located in one of the corner towers of Lhakang Chenmo Monastery. Although recently painted they offer a glimpse into the Sakya of old. Most of the architectural representations and areas of the cityscape are accompanied by inscriptions. (SRG Archive 2007).
