'Not only did the faithful keep up a constant circumambulation of the Living Buddha's private palace but also about the huge chortens near by, which were the mausoleums for the ashes of previous Living Buddha incarnations. There were three large chortens in Lhabrang. They looked like giant chessman-bishops. The two whitewashed stone-and-stucco chortens were sixty feet at the base, towering seventy-five feet to the crescent-and-disc figure at their spire-peaks.' (p. 103-104)
