Nearby, the complex, there are small shops that sell unique Tibetan handicrafts and carpets. These monasteries are surrounded by several small shops selling beautiful handicrafts and carpets made by Tibetan people living nearby these monasteries. The Tibetan Monasteries also run a Thanks School of Arts and a Carpet-weaving Center to preserve ancient Tibetan art. The paintings inside these buildings depict events from Lord Buddha's life and the Kalchakra that is the wheel of life fixed on the wall of the monastery shows the human life cycle. The Buddhists believe that rotating these wheels gives you salvation.
