Gyantse Dzong is one of the great historical fortresses that dominated Central Tibet. Our hand drawn map of Gyantse shows the city as it existed in the late 1930s. The map is based on photographs taken by Ernst Schaefer in 1938, as well as on comprehensive sketches of the surrounding city, which were commissioned by agents of the British Raj in 1904. The map features both the ancient fortress and the neighboring complex of Palcho Monastery, all lovingly illustrated with an eye for historical detail.
