  Norbulinka Summer Palace
by sachara

The Norbulinka, meaning ''precious jewel island)'', was the summerpalace of the Dalai Lama just outside Lhasa. In comparision with the Potala this palace is small. In fact the Norbilinka has three buildings in a beautifull garden.

In the palace you can visit the rooms of the Dalai Lama: the bed- bath- and living room. In the livingroom you can see his old philips radio. Further there is the meditation room, the reception room and the throne room.

Address: Lhasa
Directions: Four KM west of the Potala.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
