Yongning (永宁) monastery 2003

Yongning monastery, originally uploaded by mutikonka.

I like comparing this photograph with the one above. This is Yongning monastery [Zhamei Si, 扎美寺] as it looked on my visit of summer 2003. The main temple has been rebuilt but if you look carefully the smaller building in front is the original.

There were very few monks in residence, although the catetakers told me there were usually 30 or so novices.

It took me some time to find the spot where Rock had taken his picture from - it was the corner of a hill, just near the road.
