King's palace in Tsarang hasn't been used for 50 years and it shows. The only two rooms that are in good condition are the Gonkhang and the chapel with fine statues and Tibetan books. The statues show the 'Three Holies', three figures who played an important part in Mustang's early history. On the floor above is the Gonkhang, the room of the protectors. Usually it contains just statues of the Dharmapalas, here we find a stuffed snow leopard, old weapons, armour and other scary artefacts. The cut-off hand gets the most attention; several stories about the hand circulate, 1. it was the hand of a thief, in earlier times cutting off the right hand was the punishment for the second offence, 2. a humble monk offered his hand as a sacrifice 3. to prevent an architect to build a similar dzong his hand was cut off. Whatever story is true, they are all good gruesome stories and leave impressions not only on locals’ minds.
