Tibet: Gyantse Dzong (SRG Archive)

Gyantse Dzong (SRG) | Gyantse Main Page | Gyantse Architecture

The Gyantse Dzong (Fortress) sits high up on a craggy steep hill in the middle of the fertile valley that supports the town of Gyantse. The Dzong has numerous rooms filled with murals of all types. The oldest of the murals are likely to be the many mandala paintings in the Mandala Room at the top of the Dzong.
