Photographer's Note

Hemis Monastery is famous for its spectacular annual festival, dedicated to Guru Padmasamghava, the 8th century Indian apostole who took Buddhism to Tibet. The dance-dramas performed at Ladakh's annual festivals are very popular events. The dancers representing divine or mythological figures, wear colourful brocade robes and heavy masks as they perform ceremonial dances around the monastery courtyard.
