Isipatana (now called Sarnath) is a famous town near Varanasi where Buddha gave his first sermon after he attained the enlightenment. Now it is a very popular pilgrimage site for buddhists from all over the world, and in particular from Tibet, as these three technically-savvy monks were.

Gap above the branch is distracting. Tighter crop improves this nice capture.
