  Balcony in the Jokhang
by extrajoce

One is not allowed to take pictures inside the rooms of most temples and monasteries, so the lovely roofs and balconies often make up for it. The architectural style of the Jokhang is definitely worth a look - it is a very pleasant place where the monks actually live, so it doesn't have the austerity of the places of worship of some other religions.
