Guests at a party in the garden of Dekyi Lingka. They include (in the centre) a Nepalese/Indian official's wife. None of the Tibetan women are wearing elaborate head-dresses which suggests this was a low-key affair. There is quite a large number of children. In the foreground there is a slatted slung bridge over a small canal.
