DescriptionInterestingly the Tsholing came off at the lower end of the arena - leaving the Tsholing in charge of the courtyard - before returning and then exiting finally by the main door to the Lhakhang from which they d originally entered. Dasho Thinley Gyamtsho of RAPA thought that the Ging's final dance - after the Tsholing had departed - was not standard at all - and owed a lot to the movements of the Peling Tradition.
