Succesive Prostrations: Another View

You see them on the right. I would estimate it would take about 4 times as long to complete the circumambulation this way.

Pilgrimage Via Successive Prostrations

This is the beginning of the Kora circumambulation around the Monastery. Some pilgrims prostrate themselves succesively around the 3 kilometer route. You see them to the left. On the right, you see pilgrims making the circumambulation in the normal way.


There is a prayer area as you go from the village towards the Monastery on the road past the monk's cells.
