Hemis Festival ~ June 1981

From The Times of India:

"Hemis Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery (gompa) of the Drukpa Lineage, located in Hemis, Ladakh (within the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir) situated 45 km from Leh. The Gompa is a unique example of a monastic complex, which manifests in its structure the geomantic principles, which underlie Buddhist architecture. The monastery was established in 1672 by the Ladakhi King Senge Namgyal. The Hemis Gompa was founded 350 years ago and is one of the wealthiest monasteries in Ladakh. Hemis belongs to the Kagupa Brugpa sect of Buddhism, the sect dominant in Bhutan. The annual Hemis festival honoring Padmasambhava is held here in early June."
