The Jokhang Temple, situated in the centre of old Lhasa, was originally built in 647 A.D. It is said that the site was chosen personally by the wife of King Songtsan Gampo, the Tang Princess Wen Cheng. It was built by craftsmen from Tibet, China and Nepal and thus features several architectural styles. The Jokhang is the spiritual centre of Tibet and the holiest destination for all Tibetan Buddhist pilgrims.

The Barkhor Street is found in the heart of Lhasa circling the Jokhang Temple. It means 'a pilgrim's inner circuit', and is the oldest street of old Lhasa city.
