When we asked, we learned that they were actually study huts for the monks. Afterwards we also explored the town and the outskirts.

... At 10 a procession of monks emerges, and yes, they are wearing yellow hats. Our guide for this tour is a monk; he marches us round briskly - if we slow down or speed up we collide with some other tour group. He explains that we are in a centre for Buddhist learning, with 10,000 rooms and 65,000 books. The monks study various specialities: we view the faculties of Medicine and Astrology, where rows of monks are sitting on cushions reciting in unison outside ...
