Home to more than 300-thousand wooden printing blocks used to produce sutras on religion, history, literature, art, medicine, mathematics and astronomy, the Dege Sutra Printing House is the biggest of the three printing houses in China's Tibetan regions, the other two being in Tibet Autonomous Region and Gansu Province.
