The Potala Palace Introduction

The most well-known place to visitors of Lhasa is the thirteen storey Potala Palace. Being located o­n the tallest hill in Lhasa it is an impressive sight dominating the city as it rises more than 300 metres above the valley floor. With its 1000 rooms, a tour through both the Red and White Palaces involves plenty of stair climbing. The White Palace was used for secular purposes such as offices and the monks' living quarters while the Red Palace contains hundreds of temples and shrines and the tombs of the Dalai Lamas. Being the place of residence of the present Dalai Lama, before he fled to the safety of India, it is now a museum. Unlike most of the other places I visited, which are still actively used, the Potala Palace did not have a pervading sense of life, rather a strong sense of history.
