The central and eastern sections of Zhöl (zhol) village seen from the Potala. A group of horses and grooms can be seen in the bottom center of the image, possibly those of the British diplomatic mission lead by Hugh Richardson. The image is taken looking directly down into Zhöl village from the Potala, showing clearly the rooftops and courtyards of the buildings.
