Tibetan temple cymbals (also known as tingsha, Tin Shas, temple chimes and hand cymbals) are small metal cymbals used in prayer and rituals by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners. The cymbals are joined together by a leather strap and, when struck together, they producing a crystal clear, high pitched ringing tone. Tibetan temple cymbals are very thick and produce a unique long ringing tone. Typical sizes range from 4 to 10 cm in diameter. In the modern context, Tibetan temple cymbals are used along with singing bowls and other instruments in meditation, music and sound healing.
