Preserving Culture in the Himalayas - In the Footprints of Csoma

The exhibition, a tribute to the great Hungarian scholar Alexander Csoma de Kőrös, showcasing the voluntary work of the Csoma's Room Foundation in Zangla, was inaugurated by Prof. Lokesh Chandra, Director of the International Academy of  Indian Culture, on the 17th of September 2012. 'Volunteering above the clouds' can be the motto of the young Hungarians who have been working on the restoration of the Zangla Palace where Alexander Csoma de Kőrös stayed in the early 19th centrury and made the first Tibetan-English dictionary. The opening was attended by eminent scholars and many others who have been interested in the work of the volunteers in the Zangla region.
