Each compound is entered via a doorway or zaguan off the main alley. Inside is found the communal watersource, a pump or tap. The Tibet Heritage Fund is looking for sponsors to "adopt" a building to finance repair and upgrading works outside our core area, also to help in other parts of the town. Please contact the Tibet Heritage Fund.
