Chorten and Lathos in Spiti, Himachal Pradesh, India

In Lamaist Buddhism chorten and lathos play an important role. They are not only signs of an active religious life. Especially the lathos shall protect the people against any evil spirits and demons. So they do not only hang their prayer flags there but also deposit lots of animalsī horns and juniper branches.
