Day 02
Lhasa - Jokhang Temple - Barkhor Street - Potala Palace
After breakfast we head to visit The Jokhang Temple, this temple has undergone massive additions and reconstructions since the 7th century and particularly during the reign of 5th Dalai Lama in the 17th century. While parts of the existing temple structure date from earlier times, most of the murals are from the 18th and 19th centuries and few statues (with the notable exception of the Joyo Sakyamuni) are older than the 1980's. The Jokhang is the most celebrated temple in Tibet. Because the temple is not controlled by a particular sect of Tibetan Buddhism. It attracts adherents of all the sects as well as followers of Bon-Po, Tibet's indigenous religion. 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. The street circles the Jokhang Temple has been an essential pilgrim route since the foundation of the temple.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. There is more to Barkhor Street than just a place for pilgrims to walk. Barkhor Street, often called the "Window of Tibet" is famous for its shopping. Our tour continues to visit the famous Potala Palace (from Outside), the winter palace of the Dalai Lama, which was originally built in the 7th century by the king Sotsen Gampo and rebuilt to the present size by the 5th Dalai Lama in the 17th century. Late visit, Norbulingka Palace, Built in the mid-18th century by the 7th Dalai Lama. This Norbulingka Jewel Park was the Dalai Lama’s summer palace; it covers 100 acres with palaces, pavilions and a zoo. The Khamsum Zilnon is a very eye-catching building behind the main gate. It was originally a Han style pavilion and later changed into a theatre where the Dalai Lamas watched Tibetan opera. Tsokyil Potrang is a group of buildings on water. Dalai Lamas used to read in a hall of the palace. In 1922, the Thirteenth Dalai Lama began to build his Golden Lingka and Chensel Potrang, which is located at the back of the woods. The palace was heavily painted with murals, which bear strong Han characteristics. Overnight at Hotel in Lhasa.
