Photo taken on March 10, 2014 shows a giant gilt-bronze prayer wheel in Shangri-la County of Deqen Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, southwest China's Yunnan Province. The prayer wheel is 21 meters in height and weighs 60 tonnes. Like many prayer wheels, it contains the traditional six-syllable Om Mani Padme Hum mantra in the inside. Because of its size and weight, the prayer wheel is to be spun by multiple people. [Xinhua]
