Two officials seated next to the Kelzang Darchen (bskal bzang dar chen). The prayer flag was positioned in front of the house of the 7th Dalai Lama's family, Yapzhi Sampo (yab gzhis bsam pho), at the southwest corner of the Barkor (bar skor). The officials are seen wearing gyaluché (rgya lu chasbyams pa gdan 'dren), which took place on the 25th day of the first month of the Tibetan calendar.
