The Buddhas

 The big one is shrouded for restoration. I think they said the damage was done in 2008. In 2008 there was a huge demonstration in Lhasa, protesting the Chinese occupation of Tibet. The trouble spread to the Tibetan areas of China and a lot of monuments suffered damage.
There was a sleeping Buddha inside a cave but we weren't allowed to take any pictures. So I took a picture of its picture.
