Apart from the exquisite view this area has to offer there are three locations which is a must when visiting Lhasa. They are the Potola Palace, Norbulingka and Jokhang Temple. All these places are very accessible; you can either take a shuttle or go for a brief walk. The Potola Palace which is the most famous was of course the chief residence of the Dalai Lama before he fled to India in the 1950’s. It was first constructed in 1645 but since the 14th Dalai Lama was exiled the government have done reconstructions in 1989 through to 1994. It is the most popular tourist attraction in Tibet as it is so enriched with history, religion and culture that it should definitely not be ignored from your list of sites. Also to keep in mind photography within the Temple is forbidden, so just restrain yourself until you get outside.

 

Norbulingka is considered to be one of the biggest man made
gardens in China, taking up an area of 36 hectares. This garden is approximately 1 kilometre south-west of the Potala Palace and was known as the summer residence for the Dalai Lama. It is recommended to go in the July/August period when the Sho Dun Festival or ‘the yogurt festival’ in on. It is a great festival to experience, there is a lot of music, dancing and food.

Jokhang Temple is a must; it is seen to be one of the most sacred temples in Tibet. The architecture of this temple is amazing, with beautiful gilded bronze tiles on the roof tops. The temple was constructed in the 7th century AD as a house of statues for the Buddha. Along with the Patola Palace, this temple is very popular among tourists. In the year 2000 the Jokhang Temple was added to the World Heritage List, Norbulingka was added in 2001 and the Potola Palace has been on the list since 1994.

 

If you love history, Lhasa is the place to go for your tour of China. It is so enriched with the Buddhist beliefs and culture that it would be an experience of a life time to see it all first hand. Lhasa is very accessible from the larger cities in China, it can be accessed either by a

The Wuzi Hall is the main hall of the Sangye Temple. The three storey hall faces the east, with a floor area of around 6000 square meters. The height of each storey is between 5.5 to 6 meters. Because the storeys are much higher than usual storeys, it appears from the outside that the Wuzi Hall has five floors inside, but actually it has only three. On the second and third floor of the hall, there are spacious balconies built along one side of them. Thanks to them, sunlight can enter the hall during the day and keep it bright inside.

According to historic records, the architects of the hall wanted to combine Chinese, Tibetan, and Indian architectural styles together to build it. That is why the first storey of the hall represents typical Tibetan style, while the second storey is in Chinese style, and the third storey adopted Indian style. The elegant frescos and statues in each storey also reflect the architectural styles of that storey, and are in harmony with their surroundings. The mixed architectural style of the Wuzi Hall is very unique. As a matter of fact, you can hardly find an ancient building like this in the history of architecture. People even call it the “Three-style Temple” to honor its special design.

The Sangye Temple Stories

The fifth king of the Tubo Dynasty, Trisong Detsen, was the son of Princess Jincheng from the Tang Dynasty. In 754 BC, to consolidate his power, he adopted Buddhism from Indian and promoted it in Tibet. Establishing a splendid Buddhist temple in Tibet was part of his plan, too.

King Trisong Detsen ordered several architects to build a temple on the foot of the Holly Mountain of Haiburi. But the temple fell apart during the building for no reason. The King asked a Buddhist master for advice, and he said the reason was that the place where the temple was to be built was haunted by ghost. So the king invited a powerful master from another country, Master Lotus, to kill the ghost. Master Lotus drove the ghosts away with his power easily. After he finished his job, he use his magic to make an illusion of a beautiful temple appear on the foot of the Holly Mountain of Haiburi. The king was so amazed that he shouted out, “Sangye! (Literally mean beyond one’s expectation in Tibetan)”, because it was exactly the temple he pictured in his mind. So after the temple was built, he named it “the Sangye Temple” to in memory of those difficulties that had been overcome during the establishment.
