China, Tibet, Ganden Monastery, April 2005

China, Tibet, Ganden Monastery, April 2005

For a moment the snow stops falling. I grab the opportunity to explore the entrance to the temples complex, a true city. The brightly colored prayer sheets were in display awaiting the devout buyer. While I composed the photo, I noticed a monk approaching: it was only a matter of waiting for the right moment. This monastery, founded in 1409, had more than 2000 monks on the 50s. Bombed twice and reduced to rubble, it has been rebuilt with the donations of the faithful.
