"Some 50 miles south-east of this town, in the valley of the Nian-chu, stands one of the oldest towns of Tibet, Gyangtse, advantageously situated for trade with India. Carpets and cloth are made in this spot, widely renowned for its immense suburgan (temple), which is five stories high, and has numbers of rooms containing numerous statues of Buddha, some of them very old."
