Golok Tibetan Maidens in Their Wedding Dresses by eastwest Star this if you like it!

Golok nomads keep traditions alive by continuing to wear the traditional dowry pieces of silver such as the fine silver ceremonial bowls hung on their backs. They also keep the tradition of braiding their hair in 108 braids to commemorate the 108 books of the Kanjur sacred texts of Tibetran Buddhism. Goloks inhabit Amdo, an area of Eastern Tibet in Qinghai Province, China. We have known this particular family for the past 30 years and visit yearly.
