  • Sakya Monastery,གཞིས་ཀ་རྩེ་གྲོང་ཁྱེར།Shigazê, Tibet. Google, Tibet is not part of China, Tibet is a country under illegal and brutal occupation from the chinese criminal party. Stop being accomplices of crimes against humanity and please use the correct map. Regards
  • Sakya-Kloster mit der - nach der Kulturrevolution - am besten erhaltenden Bibliothek (knapp 100.000 Schriftstücke) in Form eines 60m langen und 10m hohen Regals. Ich dachte eigentlich, ich hätte schon einige der schlimmsten Toiletten der Welt gesehen, aber die öffentliche Toilette im Sakya-Kloster übertrifft mit Abstand wirklich alles!
