The Jokhang is the most celebrated temple in Tibet. Because the temple is not controlled by a particular sect of Tibetan Buddhism.

This cumulative focusing of intention and love has charged the Jokhang with an enormously powerful field of sanctity. Later continue to visit Lhasa's Barkhor Street.

Buddhist pilgrims can be seen throughout the day and night walking or prostrating themselves clockwise along Barkhor Street spinning their prayer wheels and chanting sutras.
