or Zangla was once the former capital of Zanskar and had three Royal Palaces that belonged to the Kings of Zanskar descended from Kings of Tibet. The oldest palace that I'll call Palace #1 is over 2000 years old, just a big ruin. Palace #2, the one in this video, has a very beautiful, sacred prayer hall. Sacred because the Head Lama of Ladakh was born here twice. (I got so lost during recitations about Rimpoche Lamas...reincarnations...who was born where.) The 21 year old Prince of Zanskar happened to be present and graciously told about his family, lineage, reincarnations. Even more "Lost in Translation" moments for Travels With Sheila... Perhaps you'll understand what he was saying.
