Pala is an aristocratic family with a history of 400 years. Covering 5357 squre km, the manor boasts 57 rooms in its three-floor building. All facilities are complete and well-decorated. There are living room, room for conducting Tibetan Buddhism, room for basking sunshine, and there is even a hall for playing mahjong. The bedrooms are filled with golden and silver wares, imported wine, valuable fur coat and other luxury things.
However, in this building, instruments of torture including whips and fetters are displayed as well. The remaining serf rooms are cramped and dark with doors being only 1.4 meters. No window in the rooms, the exploited Tibetans slept on the rugged felt, in contrast to their owners’ luxury houses.
