The Treasury of Lives

A trading family from Kandze that became one of the most successful family firms of Tibet in the twentieth century. The family's main business was exporting Tibetan wool and importing Indian and foreign goods. Their base in Lhasa was the Sadutshang Manor House, which they bought from the Khyungrampa family, in the Banak Zhol neighborhood. When Rinchen Sadutshang entered Tibetan government service in 1948 as an official of the fifth rank, the family was effectively ennobled as only Tibetan nobility could serve in the government.
