Part of Potala Palace Kora

Carvings look impressive. The area is less crowded than the central part, therefore its more quiet and peaceful. It doesn't take a long time to walk there.

On the pilgrimage road up to the hill opposit the renowned Potala Palace, there are thousands of colorful Buddha painting on the wall. You will see local people praying while walking up to the temple as well. At the main monastery, people are making merit by praying and offering the butter candles.

A nice site, close to Potala Palace, with more or less 1,000 images carved into a Cliffside. Very colorful. Can be visited in an hour or less. In the afternoon of our visit, there were some pilgrims but it was not crowded. Worth a visit.

Thank wymanz2go
