Feb. 16, 2017 -- A photo exhibition featuring southwest China's Tibet and other Tibetan areas on the Chinese mainland opened Wednesday in downtown Taipei.
The exhibition, which was in a historical and art village near the 101 building, featured more than 100 photos mainly depicting Tibet's natural environment such as Mount Qomolangma, which is also known as Everest, culture and religion as well as Tibetan life.
The exhibition was organized by the Alumni Association of the Whampoa Military Academy and the Labor Party of Taiwan and the photos were provided by dozens of Chinese language media outlets.
Taipei citizen Ms. Chang said the exhibition challenged her preconceptions that Tibet was isolated and poor. "The place is really attractive and I will visit sometime," she said.
Palyul Choktrul, a monk living in Taiwan, said the exhibition was a true and beautiful representation of Tibet, which made him miss home.
The exhibition will run till Feb. 20 and is free to the public.
