Continued from yesterday's image, part II shows the same devout man, fully prostrated. After this, he stands, takes 3 steps forward, then prostrates himself again. The circuit around the Jokhang Temple is about a half mile, if not more so this man must repeatedly do this for three full loops around the temple.
