One day Lhasa Group Trip Attraction 1-Potala Palace
A trip to Tibet is a big loss if without experiencing the vital Potala Palace. Potala Palace is the highest landmark of the capital city of Lhasa.You can have view to Potala from every parts of Lhasa and most hotels even provide Potala View Rooms. Standing over the Marpo Ri hill, 130 meters above the Lhasa valley, Potala Palace consists 1000 rooms, with chapels, schools, monasteries, jails, government administrative offices, residences and tombs of successive Dalai Lamas.The whole structure is divided into Red palace (Podrang Marpo) and white palace(Podrang Karpo) with distinct color. The Red palace was mainly used for ritual purposes and White palace was used for governmental and administration field. Its towering image already appears on various occasions, but your first sight of the Potala will still be an awe-inspiring moment.
One day Lhasa Group Trip Attraction 2-Jokhang Temple and Barkhor Streets
Today we will take a very easy visit to Jokhang Temple and Barkhor Bazaar. Jokhang temple, the product of Han, Tibetan and Nepalese architectural techniques, is the most revered shrine in all of Tibet and is constantly bustling with devoted worshipers. Everyday, pilgrims from every corner of Tibet trek a long distance to the temple. Jokhang Temple was founded by the 33rd great king of Tibet in the 7th century, in order to promote the Buddhist religion. Inside you can see the statue of Buddha Sakyamuni at the age of twelve, perhaps the only most venerated object in Tibetan Buddhism. Around the temple is Barkhor street where you can do kora (a religious circle of a building or mountain) with pilgrims and locals, in the meantime you can buy souvenirs. Barkhor Street is absolutely the window of Lhasa Tibet through which you can learn the local people’s life, culture and businesses.
