Prayer flags along Kumbum kora

Kora (སྐོར་ར་) is a type of pilgrimage or a meditation in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Kora is performed by making a walking circumambulation around a temple, stupa, mountain, monastery or other sacred object. Pilgrims, doing kora, usually chant prayers and mantras or do body prostrations. In Tibetan Buddhism Tradition kora is performed in a clock-wise direction, while Bon followers perform it in a counter-clockwise direction.
