Sitting on the north bank of the Kyichu in the southeast part of Tibet,surrounded by colossal mountain ranges to the north and south, Lhasa is the heart and soul of Tibet, the center of Tibetan politics, economy, culture and religion. Most of the historical sights here dated back to the 1600s when the magnificent Potala Palace was built. The Potala dominates the skyline but Jokhang is considered to be the spiritual center of the city. Pilgrims flock to Lhasa to see and experience the remaining enclaves of tradition.
