The Treasury of Lives

The original Barkor Mani Lhakhang were a pair of prayerwheel temples on the northern stretch of the Barkor in Lhasa allegedly founded by Miwang Pholane Sonam Tobgyel in the eighteenth century and commonly called Miwang Khorlo after him. The original Mani Lhakhang was razed in the 1960s. In 1989, a replacement Mani Lhakhang was built on a different location in the Barkor, on the open square in front of the old Nangtseshar courthouse. The new Mani Lhakhang is now maintained by Mindroling Monastery.
