The whim of the noble elite in Guge to dress well goes beyond our bounds in the modern period. These were people who wore their clothes and their jewels with absolutely no sense of guilt or regret. They reveled in beauty. They reveled in opulence. Not only did they wear their beauty, they lived amidst it, too, in their houses, the way they decorated them with the greatest artwork of the time.

In this banquet room, Khri-bkra-shis-grangs-pa-lde and his queen would have enjoyed many social occasions, entertained by song and dance. Guge's armoury held the finest weaponry of the time. Its sword smith used sophisticated technics to craft superior steel alloys, making their swords much sought after.

But Guge's wealth and power also attracted the attention of envious neighbours, who launched frequent attacks on the kingdom. Eventually, one such neighbour would discover a weakness to capitalize on. And Guge's fate would be sealed forever.

Just 30 kilometres away down the valley from the palace of Tsaparang, is the monastery of Thöling. Today, it is a modest structure, an eighth of its original size. But at its peak, Thöling housed more than 900 monks and was the largest of Guge's monasteries both in size and influence, a power base akin to the Vatican. Pilgrims flocked to Thöling and with them came wealth, which they gave to the monastery. At the centre of this spiritual power base, was a chief abbot, king Khri-bkra-shis-grangs-pa-lde's brother.
