Tabo skor lam: west wall, middle section

The eight Buddhas are depicted on two levels on the west wall of the Ambulatory. The group consists of the seven Buddhas of the Past, including Śākyamuni, and the Buddha of the Future, Maitreya. The first Buddha of each row in the south-west corner is lost because of repainting. The Buddhas are flanked by their respective most eminent disciples. While in the lower register the Buddhas are identified on the dividing line above their heads, the disciples have proper captions (Luczanits 1999: 159-162, Klimburg-Salter 1997: 167-171).
