China General: 367 reviews and 336 photos


Favorite thing: <font face='verdana'>Potala Palace</font>

Fondest memory: <font face='verdana'>
<font color=blue>Potala Palace</font>, the crown of the mysterious ciy <font color=blue>Lhasa</font>, province <font color=blue>Sitsang</font>, the <font color=blue>Buddhism</font> halidom of local people, and their <font color=blue>Living Buddha</font> is living in this palace.

The white jokul, the splendid palace, the peaceful lake and the green grassland, all these will take your breath away.

Though I have no idea about their religion and culture (I am a traditional Chinese), I?m sure wherever you come from, you will be moved and shocked by the devotional pilgrim. They <font color=blue>kowtow</font> (with a special pose to make sure their bodies, face-side down, touching the ground completely) with their every steps while they are *walking* to their halidom, Potala Palace. It's said, they used to spend several months, taking one step and one kowtow, going to the palace.
