      ... of the yellow-hat type (Gelugpa). The Dalai Lama is from this type. We entered the compound and headed for the temple. Our local guide pointed out the roof line with the two deer that symbolize Buddha. There were two sets of prayer wheels on the sides of the door and people came by to spin them.
