Photographer's Note

There are pigeons galore at the Gandantegchinlen Khiid Monastery in the Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar. This Tibetan-style Buddhist monastery is commonly known as Gandan Monastery meaning "Great Place of Complete Joy". It was built in the mid 19th century and today it is home to more than 150 monks and even more pigeons.
