Farmers flailing barley in an area east of the Potala. The twin Khangser (<i>khang ser</i>), two Chinese-style pagodas containing historical scripture pillars (<i>rdo ring</i>), are visible in the middle distance, with a domestic building to their right. In the background, the east side of Chakpori (<i>lcags po ri</i>) surmounted by the medical college can be seen.
