Choni monastery interior, 1925

interior1, originally uploaded by jiulong.

This is the Buddhist monastery of Choni [now Jone] in Gansu province, where Rock visited in 1925 on his way to the "Mountains of Mystery" - Amnye Machen at the headwaters of the Yellow river.

For some reason - perhaps due to lack of flash - Rock didn't take many pictures inside temples or of the ceremonies conducted within their gloomy interiors.
