Photographer's Note

Tongren is a largely Tibetan town and county in Qinghai, China. It is called Repkong in Tibetan and has several interesting Tibetan Buddhist temples and gompas. Tongren is known as a center of thangka painting.

This picture was taken during a day out in the area
north of the town. I found this small ensemble of religious buildings quite fascinating, quite original too. They can be found near the Wutong monastery, but I couldn't really figrue out what they represented. Well, nevermind, beauty is enough.
