The Thongdrol enrolled

The Thongdrol enrolled
This Thanka, the Thongdrol, is the second largest Thanka on the world, (the largest is in Lahsa/Tibet and is enrolled in Aug. every year at the Sera monasterry Lhasa). The people enroll it during nighttime only due a very high sensibility that the sunlight will destroy the nice color. Visitors at the Tshechu Paro have to get up very early at nighttime to see the Thanka, which is enrolled once a year.
