This low-power view of the gastric mucosa shows gastric glands, both in longitudinal and cross section, made up of simple columnar cells (individual cells are also not easily identified at this power). The lumen is to the left. Many gastric glands (G) drain into larger gastric pits (P).  Note the lamina propria (LP) and muscularis mucosae (MM).  The submucosa and other layers of the stomach are not shown here
