Prayer flags are ubiquitous at places with a Tibetan culture. Tibetan people believe that prayer flags offer blessings to the surrounding countryside and help the dead to rest in peace.
It is said that every time the wind moves the prayers flags in the air, the scriptures on the fluttering flags will be read by the wind.
