Tibetan monasteries especially the major ones normally have ornamentally decorated and brightly coloured doors. Most of these doors are made of heavy thick wood and stays strong for many years. These doors are commonly ringed by heavy-duty brass corners and knobs. The brass knobs also serve as "door bell" as visitors can knock the ring against the brass base to produce loud banging thuds.

“I treat the photograph as a work of great complexity in which you can find drama. Add to that a careful composition of landscapes, live photography, the right music and interviews with people, and it becomes a style.” – Ken Burns
