Lhasa is the capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region. Dei town is located in a Hochgebirg Valley at 3650 meters and was founded with a temple. Even today, it has great religious significance and accommodates many monks.
The main sights of the city are the Potala Palace and the Jokhang Temple as well as the nearby Drepung Monastery and Sera Monastery.
According to the tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, there are three concentric pilgrimages in Lhasa. The innermost route, Nangkhor, includes a tour of the courtyard of Jokhang Temple. The middle way is called Barkhor and includes a tour around the Jokhang Temple as well as other monasteries and temples in the old town. The outermost route, called Lingkhor, follows the earlier city boundaries.
