From a sacred sandalwood tree four sculpture were produced and installed in temples stretching from the Kathmandu, Nepal, to Lhasa, Tibet: [1] Kathmandu (Rato Macchendranath), [2] Kathmandu (Seto Macchendranath), [3] Kyirong, and [4] Lhasa. These four sculpture appear to be of a larger size than the sculpture installed in the 108 demon subduing temples.
