842 antique books registered at Tibet's Norbulingka
The survey of old documents at Norbulingka, an ancient palace in Lhasa, Tibet Autonomous Region, registered 842 ancient books including hand-written Buddhism scriptures by August 1. The palace's management office and the regional ancient book protection center jointly launched the survey last September. Some of the ancient books at Norbulingka were found to be moth-eaten and have paging disorders, which researchers will digitally record in detail for the survey.
