  Jokhang Temple, inner court
by sachara

The Jokhang temple is the religious centre of Lhasa. You will see a lot of pilgrims around, praying and prostating.
From the roof of the temple you have a the most breathtaking view at the Potala Palace and the city, you can ever imagine.

Round the Jokhang Temple is the Barkhor, a street with a lot of streetstalls and shops. The Barkhor is Lhasa's inner pilgrimage circuit. You have to go round clockwise.

For more information and pictures look at my Lhasa-page.
