Chorten, or Stupa in Tibetan area is the symbol of Buddhist thought, story and beauty. To indicate its sanctity, most body of the chorten is white.

Chorten is holy in Tibetan's heart. When important Festival comes, Tibetans will come from everywhere and light up branches in the Chorten. When smoke appears, Tibetans will kowtow with whole body lie on the ground. The leading actor in the movie' Ke Ke Xi Li' talked about those Tibetans kowtow to Lhasa, he said, 'Those who kowtow with all bodies lie on the ground, they looked quite dirty both on faces and hands, but their hearts are especially clean.'
