Statue of the Buddha Shakyamuni in one of the 76 chapels inside the Kumbum, the largest such structure in Tibet. It is situated in Palcho Monastery, Gyantse County, Shigatse Prefecture, Tibet Autonomous Region, China. A Kumbum ("100,000 Holy Images") is a multi-storied aggregate of Buddhist chapels in Tibet. The Kumbum or great gomang ("many-doored" college) chorten ("reliquary") at Gyantse is a three-dimensional mandala, a structure that portrays the Buddhist vision of the cosmos. The Kumbum, like other mandalas -- a circle within a square -- enables devotees to take part in the Buddhist perception of the universe and can depict their potential as they move through it. Mandalas are meant to aid individuals on the path to enlightenment. The Kumbum holds a vast number of images of deities throughout its structure with Vajradhara, the "cosmic Buddha," at the top.
