Hemis Festival, India

It doesn’t look like India, isn’t it?

I found this festival during research for my next article. The Hemis Festival is held at Hemis Gonpa monastery in Ladakh every year to celebrate thie birth of Lord Padmasambhava. The Cham dances and performances illustrate the story of good and evil.
