White Tara Statue at Attetse Monastery | Photos of Ladakh
Photo of a statue of White Tara at Attetse Monastery in Ladakh, India.
Attetse is a little known monastery at the end of a valley near the larger and more famous Lamayuru monastery.
In the old prayer hall are some of the most beautiful statues we've seen in Ladakh. An exquisite central Maitreya is flanked by White Tara and Amytayus, all sculpted with delicate features. There is also a tiny cave said to have been inhabited by Naropa on his eleventh century journey from Kashmir to see Atisha at Guge in western Tibet.
The second photo shows the Shrine Room at Attetse, White Tara on the left of Maitreya.
