Jokhang in Lhasa - Lhasa, Tibet

Jokhang in Lhasa

Thanks Gary McCue for this favorite place.

Favorite Monastery- Easy choice, as the Jokhang in Lhasa is oldest temple in Tibet, founded in the 7th century, and may well be the most atmospheric temple to be found anywhere in the world. No Tibetan pilgrim would come to Lhasa without making at least one visit here, much like pilgrims going on the Haj to Mecca. It’s an incredible experience to visit with the throngs of pilgrims in the mornings, but it’s also worth returning in the evening when the monks are chanting in a prayer ceremony, and it’s far less crowded then for enjoying the antiquity of the many inner temples.
