Mural Depicting Timbers Transportation


Separatist Regimes, from the Gu-ge Palace

The Gu-ge Palace was built on a hill, over 20 kilometers west of the present rTsa-mdav County Town. It occupies an area of about 180,000 square meters, and the highest constructional spot reaches 300 meters above the ground. It consists of over 300 buildings, more than 300 caves and 3 ten-meter-high stupas. A fortification is around the buildings and four watchtowers stand on four corners. Four temples and two halls stand in the Gu-ge Palace. Most timbers used in the construction of such a magnificent palace were transported from other places. This mural, painted on the walls of the Grand Assembly in the Gu-ge Palace, shows the scene of timber transportation when the palace was under construction.
