Tengyeling Monastery in Lhasa following its destruction by supporters of the 13th Dalai Lama (tA la'i bla ma) in 1914. The monastery was located to the west of the Barkor (bar skor), just north of Turquoise Bridge, or Yutok Zampa (g.yu thog zam pa). The south face of the Potala can be seen in the distance, with tall mountains in the background.
