Lhasa from the east. [N.] In the background and nearly in the center is the "Iron mountain" Ch'agpori (1) with the Man-ba Ta-ts'an (2) [Man-bo-datsang], where Tibetan medicine is taught. On the right is the hill Marpori with Potala, Dalai Lama's Palace.

"Arriving at the foot of Chagpori, on the summit of which is the College of Surgeons of Tibet, I got off my horse and ascended the hill as I had promised to visit an old doctor known as Amchi Rivola, who was afflicted with cataract […] Amchi Rivola soon made his appearance, a man of commanding looks and heavily built. He was the Principal of the Vaidurya Tatsan of Chagpori, and physician to the regent." (p. 195)

"On the top of this hill stand the buildings of the largest convent of Lhasa, the Manbo-datsang, where the monks devote themselves to the study of medicine. To the right, on a hill which rises three hundred feet higher, one sees a collection of buildings, which is the residence of the Dalai-Lama and is called Potala." (p.550) Deniker, J. (1903).
