Panorama of Dalai Lama's Monastery

Though co-incidental, the timing of this could not have been better planned. As there are protests and arrests in London and Paris over the Chinese treatment of Tibet and their own people as try to carry the Olympic torch to Beijing, a user of Panoramic Earth has uploaded a 360° panorama taken from the personal monastery of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Here is the Namgyal Monastery panorama. The Namgyal Monastery is found in Himachal Pradesh, Dharamshala, part of India. The Dalai Lama moved the monastery here when the Chinese red army invaded Tibet in 1959.

Thanks to Malcolm Etherington for this unique and timely contribution to the site.
