[Homework]

What emerged from the battle, and the bloodshed, was a separate kingdom, Guge. Guge flourished at the geographical crossroad to some of the greatest civilizations of the time.
Tsaparang was the center of trade for the Guge kingdom in the autumn and spring, nornads would bring wool, skins and salt to trade in Tsaparang. And in the summer, people from the south side of the Himalaya would come down here to trade. Therefore the prosperity of the Guge kingdom depended on all this trade.
The king’s wealth came from gold mines. And they are supplemented by arms given by the pilgrims traveling through the kingdom. None of these which is however, could ensure what the kingdom needed most, water. Tsaparang lay admits a vast and arid desert. In order to guarantee Guge’s survival, the king was forced to spend much of his resources transporting water to the city and to the farms that it depended on. The ancient irrigation canals, wells and even a 20-kilometer-long aqueduct, stretching from the sit-lege river to the citadel, can still be seen amidst the ruins -- evidence of the massive undertakings to keep this oasis alive. With their power and livelihood secure, the royal proceeded to live a life full of absolute opulence.
