Photographer's Note

One of the paintings of Buddha on the walls of the Rumtek Monastery in Sikkim. The whole temple is filled with the Buddhist Murals, thangka paintings and the oil paintings of the walls. Very glorious and bright, the paintings are painted with natural colors and some of these stay as they are for a hundred years.


Richly colored murals in the traditional, Tibetan monastic painting style grace the entrance of the main temple. Here, on each side of the door, stand life-size images of the Four Guardians of the universe: Virudaka, Virupaksha, Dritarashtra, and Vaishravana, protecting the east, west, south, and north cardinal directions, respectively.....
Inside, the spacious, intricately decorated Main Shrine Hall is supported by robust red pillars. Long, round silk banners and ancient thangkas hang from these columns. Paintings of the Kagyu lineage, the Eight Great Bodhisattvas, the Sixteen Arhats and the Genduk Chogngi fill the walls....

A lot more in visit.
