information about china  TsaparangChina, Tibet
The kingdom of Guge was established in the 9th century following the assassination of the anti-Buddhist king Langdarma and break-up the Yarlung Empire. When Langdarma, died, the royal family began to fight for the throne. Gyide Nyimagun, Long Darma’s descendent, lost the war and ran away to Ngari, where he established a small kingdom. Later, Gyide Nyimagun divided Ngari into three parts and gave them to his three sons. The Guge Kingdom was ruled by Dezogun, Gyide Nyimagun’s third son. Here he established his capital: Tsaparang.

Wonderful scenery!, the commentary reminds me of what Leo Armin once said, "All kingdoms will be overthrown, all empires will diminish and all mountains will one day return to dust"
