In the heart of Tibet stands the Sakya Monastery, a silent witness to centuries gone by. This special place held a secret. For years, behind old walls, lay a library filled with ancient manuscripts. These papers tell tales from long ago, and they waited patiently, hidden from the world, to share their stories, until now.
I’m feeling lazy on a Saturday night so wiki to the rescue
Sakya Monastery houses a huge library of as many as 84,000 books on traditional stacks 60 metres (200 ft) long and 10 metres (33 ft) high. Most of them are Buddhist scriptures, although they also include works of literature, history, philosophy, astronomy, mathematics, agriculture and art.
