Tibetan people

Some photos of Tibetan people. Don't expect much because I have a small digital camera. My only requirement is that it should fit in my pocket !

Dancers rehearsal for a religious festival being celebrated in Lhasa. This photo was taken in front of the Dalai Lama's old summer palace.

Yak butter seller in her lunch pause. This photo was taken in the Kora (pilgrimage circuit) behind the Potala.

Painting the Jokhang temple in Lhasa. The temple was crowded with pilgrims since winter time is when they come from different parts of Tibet and China to visit the main religious temples.

A monk enters Reting monastery, one of the most important monasteries in Tibet and also one that most suffered with the chinese cultural revolution.

Monks in a religious ceremony in Sakya monastery. The ceremony was attended by hundreds of pilgrims. Sakya is probably the most authentic place I have been during my stay in Tibet. We were the only tourists in town.

Small children and huge monastery. Sakya monastery is really impressive and we were going around the monastery's Kora when this girl smiled for the photo.
