Tibetan monks who started the painstaking process of creating the sand mandela with millions of grains of colored sand, will end it in a destruction ceremony and procession to the River Avon.

The monks who currently live in exile in India are visiting various places in the UK and Europe and will complete two more sand mandelas - which are an artistic tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and are a symbolic picture of the universe representing an imaginary palace - before returning home to their monastery in late November.
