Zimchongpa warriors dressed in ancient armour processing clockwise along the Barkor (bar skor) during the Casting out the Votive Offering for the Great Prayer, or Mönlam Torgyak (smon lam gtor rgyag). The southwest corner of the Jokhang (jo khang) temple can be seen on the left side of the image. The photograph is likely taken from the roof of the Doring house.
