In the center of the site, a big stupa was towering. Eyes were written on the top of it and taking a view of the whole world any moment. Watching the eyes, I felt as if I stood in the center of the universe.

Many ropes were growing down from the top. And many prayer flags hung from the ropes were waving in the air. They were called Tarchog. Looking closer, Buddhist scriptures were written on the flags. When I saw it, its largeness made me devotional feeling.
