added by archaeologs A megalithic site at Dralang in southwestern Tibet, discovered by A.H.Francke between 1900 and 1910. It consisted of a cleared space with a stake in the centre, flanked on two sides by Iha-t’o, arrangements of two stones supporting a third flat slab to form a small table-like structure. Within the space were three large standing stones or rdo-rih, the middle one bearing an inscription Om a huri, which is probably much later than the monument’s construction and use. Pits not far away were supposedly for infant sacrifices. According to inhabitants of the area, the site had formerly been used for an annual Shar-rgan festival at which dances were performed in the cleared space and human sacrifices were offered to the goddess Tara.
