... establishments in the 1930s. The colossal grey brick walls (400x400m) that enclose the monastery compound were constructed using the stones and bricks from the ruined capital of Karakorum City.

The Lonely Planet served us well here (despite the fact they use the new names for streets and all the locals still use the old Soviet ones) and with a determined effort by the Policeman on duty to join in our game of charades we found out we needed to come back at 3pm.
