Every day, hundreds monks dressed in their Burgundy red robes assemble in small groups and practise their debating skills. It is a highly entertaining spectacle (may it is only for the tourists!), during which they strike poses, clapping, turning, and finger pointing, whooping, hollering, and throwing their prayer beads about. Among them, they argue about Buddhist rituals enjoying their debates. It was really a great experience, we were even allowed to take photos of them. I was very happy to have witness this, as we did not see the famous debating of Sera Monastery.
