Dressed in colorful costumes, lamas danced to pounding drums at the Qoide Monastery during the Tibetan New Year celebrations. The Cham dance is a vibrant masked and costumed ritual performed by Tibetan Buddhist monks to exorcise evils and pray for blessings. The Qoide Monastery has a 500-year history of performing the Cham dance. The Cham dance here was listed as one of the national intangible cultural heritages in 2011. (Xinhua/Chogo)
