Boy Monks of Chimi Lhakhang

These monks, some as young as five, were saying their early morning prayers on the garden grounds of the Chimi Lhakhang (which means monastery) in Bhutan. Like typical young boys, one of them in particular was distracted by our presence and turned in my direction just as I took a photograph of the group. Some others were more focused on their morning prayers. The grounds of the monastery were large and very peaceful.
