Photo of the Day: Tibetan Monastery in Inner Mongolia

The complex was huge, this was just the main part of it. The air was also much more crisp and clean up here in the mountains. Inside that building there were actual monks chanting, you could donate money for 'inclusion' in the chants- You wrote your name (or whatever) in a ledger and then the head monk would take it somewhere. It was extremely dark inside, with only candles on the periphery of the monks, and we weren't allowed to take pictures or disturb them.
