In the courtyard of the Gandan Monastery the monks were unrolling a large thangka.
After they removed the red veil we had a glimpse at the colorful image of the thangka. We don't know exactly why the thangka was unrolled that morning. Somebody told us, it was a gift for the monastery. Anyway we were happy to have seen this unrolled thangka.
We heard, that after ending of the communist purges, many religious artefacts were returned to the monasteries from their hiding places, allthough also many artefacts were lost for ever.
