Thanks, Chris. Some of the interiors of the Dzongs were also very impressive
including a newer one that we almost passed up.
We were not able to photograph inside however.
Inside the Dzongs, yes, inside the temples within them, no. We were supposed to be able to photograph inside one temple
in a monastery (although not the altar), but it was closed or had changed the rules. Maybe was was just raining so hard
that they didn't want a lot of water tracked in.
We were able to photograph inside a small one that was decommissioned while being restored. The altar was completed. You
can get a small idea of what the ones in the larger, newer ones are like. <https://photos.app.goo.gl/Qa493xRxccYrkb5v2>
More pix to come of the art and the restoration work in progress.
They vary a lot, of course, from large statues, etc., in very cramped spaces to
even larger ones in spacious settings.
