Image 6: Clay Buddha

An 2014–2015 excavation concentrated on Tsogchin Dugang’s northern part yielded about ten clay Buddhas 1.5 meters in height. These are remaining part of feet of clay Bodhisattva, likely from the set of Mahābodhisattvas. These boddhisattvas probably accompanied the two monumental buddhas in the main assembly hall.
