The Potala Palace is the most famous site in the city. At once citadel, temple, palace and monastery, the Potala is as rich and complex as the Buddhist faith which inspired it.
Inside the 13-storey central "Red Palace" are great assembly halls and dozens of richly decorated chapels, including the gold-encrusted reliquary stupas of seven previous Dalai Lamas: it is a real must if you happen to visit Lhasa.
Other wonderful and well known attractions include the Barkhor ... More Street, the oldest road in the city used by the pilgrims during the centuries, the Jokhang Temple, the Drepung Monastery, the Sera Monastery and the Ganden Monastery.
But one thing is sure: you will surely discover and admire much more visiting this mysterious and incredible city.
