Tibetan Buddhist monks perform during a Cham dance ritual at the Qoide Monastery in Gonggar county of Shannan prefecture, Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region, Feb 19, 2019. Dressed in colorful costumes, lamas danced to pounding drums at the Qoide Monastery during the Tibetan New Year celebrations. The Cham dance is a vibrant masked and costumed ritual performed by Tibetan Buddhist monks to exorcise evils and pray for blessings. The Qoide Monastery has a 500-year history of performing the Cham dance. The Cham dance here was listed as one of the national intangible cultural heritages in 2011. (Photo: Xinhua)
