D. In those regions many Buddhist temples had existed long before the arrival of the Tibetans who later founded their own temples and monasteries. Khri Srong-lde-brtsan is credited in the Skar-cung inscription (pp. 74, 75) and in DTH p. 114 with building temples "at the centre and on the borders, dbung mthar"; and some of those on the border, in the Tun-huang region, are named in TLTD II pp. 88-91.
