Welcome to Tsaparang
The site’s early Tantric-inspired murals are of particular interest to students of early buddhist art. Even without the magnificent art, it’s worth the trip for the views over the Sutlej Valley and to explore the twisting paths and secret tunnels that worm their way through the fortress.
Early morning and evening offers the best light. No photography is allowed inside the chapels and guardians will watch you like a hawk. Bring a strong torch, snacks and water, and expect to spend at least half a day exploring this magnificent site.
