Luri Gompa

  Luri Gompa is perched atop eroded 100 meter high cliffs. It's inner chamber is an enlarged cave with one small south-facing window and an entrance door on its southeast, communication with an outer room. The inner chamber contains wall paintings that may date back to the 13th or 14th centuries of the common era. A small chorten rests inside the inner chamber with paintings of the Mahasiddhi, great yogin on the ceiling above the chorten. Paintings of lamas are on the southwest wall of the inner chamber. The outer chamber, a mud brick structure that appears to have been added to the inner chamber, contains lesser paintings that appear to have been executed much later and a shrine.
