Lhasa is a pretty big city and it has loads of things to offer. It deserves at least three days of attention if someone wants to observe this city properly and we will spend three days here. During Lhasa visit we will be in following places:

Potala Palace : Political and religious centre of Tibet, Potala palace is one of the most beautiful monuments in Tibet. With 1000 rooms and 13 stories to explore this is probably the most popular tourist attraction in Tibet. Elegantly decorated with hundreds of Thangka paintings, frescos and images created hundreds of years ago the Potala palace is a perfect example of how ancient monuments should be preserved.Jokhang Temple : Jokhang temple which was constructed back ion 7th century attracts hundreds of tourist every year. This temple has a very huge Sakyamuni Buddha statue and is considered the holiest place in Tibet.Sera and Drepung monasteries : Sera and Drepung monasteries were founded in 1419 which are actually numerous white temples and Buddhist buildings in the foot of a rocky hill. Back in its days, Drepung monastery use to have 8,000 monks to teach traditions of Vajrayana, Mahayana, and Sutrayana, the three vehicles of Tibetan Buddhism.Norbulingka palace : Constructed by the 7th Dalai Lama this Norbulingka Palace is not actually just one palace. This is a huge garden with numerous palaces built by many Dalai lamas in different period of time.
