Nr. Lhasa, TIBET

Buddhist pilgrims visiting the Drepung Monastery outside Lhasa. The monastery (established in 1416) is one of the 'great three' Gelukpa university monasteries of Tibet. However, the number of monks living at the monastery greatly diminished following the Chinese invasion in the 1950s. The monastery is now home to less than one-tenth of the number of monks that it housed prior to the invasion.
