Tibet Jokhang Temple

Lhasa's Jokhang Temple is the most important Tibetan Buddhist temple in the world. Occupying an area of over 25,000 square meters, the temple is the ultimate pilgrimage destination for Tibetan Buddhists. Originally built in 647 AD, the temple originally had eight shrines, but after over a thousand years of renovations and reconstructions, the temple grew into the giant complex that visitors can see today. The main building is a four story wood building covered with stucco and featuring many golden accents on its roof. Listed on UNESCO's World Heritage List in 2,000 along with Lhasa's Potala Palace, the Jokhang Temple is a must for visitors to Lhasa. The famous Barkhor Street surrounds the temple complex and pilgrims heading to Jokhang Temple can be seen walking around clockwise. The street is also the best shopping street in Lhasa offering traditional arts and crafts as well as Buddhist articles for sale.
