Ragya monastery then and now

Ragya monastery 1926, originally uploaded by jiulong.

Here are pictures of my next destination - Ragya monastery near Amnye Machen in 1926 ( as pictured by Joseph Rock) and how it now looks according to Google Earth. Looks like a whole town has sprung up on what were once the deserted banks of the Yellow River.

Ragya monastery 2010 on Google Earth I will of course be hoping to take some on-the-spot pictures of better quality than Google Earth images when I visit this place next month.
