Mountain Art – Large Ancient Himalayan Buddhas – 2

The Mulbeg Chamba

Mulbeg is a small Buddhist village in Kargil that I’d first heard of while studying Perak headdress types. 

Never thought U’d visit it someday to see the spectacular Buddha mountain sculpture. 

A little Gompa has been built around it and a monk offers prayers several times a day. Will post a video of the prayers later. 

More on 2other Buddhas to follow.

    That is a very beautiful sculpture. Do you know when it was carved?
